ST LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) - Palin's primary strength is her outside of Washington status. She doesn't act like an insider, she doesn't talk like an insider, and a lot of voters may respond to that.
NO They won't.
her strength was using memorized answers to "respond" irrelevantly to questions.
and the smart voters will she she answered very few questions
but she doesn't give me the sense that she understands how washington works, at all...or how to engage in a discourse that requires her to do anything other than memorize dates and facts...
I'm no "joe Six-Pack" I find it distasteful and condescending
If they weren't going to vote for McCain Palin before the debate, I truly do not believe they are going to vote for them after this debate.
i dont like her.
CNN YOU ARE THE MOST BIASED NEWS OUTLET I HAVE EVER SEEN. WHY NO FACK CHECK'S FOR MACCAIN. THERE ALL FOR YOUR GOLDEN BOY. YOU MAKE ME SICK.
Palin did not answer a single question
I just heard Surge, Maverick etc
She even said that she was not going to answer some questions !!
Am I the only one here who thinks that Palin's performance was BS ???
THESE ARE NOT STRENGTH.
She also doesn't talk like she understands the English language, since she couldn't seem to answer any questions coherently.
Some may respond to that, but will it be negative or positive. For me it is negative!! I want someone with at least a clue about how Washington works...
At this time in our Country's history I need to have someone familar w/the ropes. I need a smart, savvy politician who can handle the world as complex as it is today. She is not the one for me.
She also doesn't talk like an intelligent knowledgeable person. She repeats talking points but I seriously doubt she understands any of them.
We get the government we deserve. If people respond to flash and nonsense instead of substance, well...I'll be disappointed but not surprised.
“There were no major gaffes”…but don’t we need more from a V.P? This is the 2nd in line to be the leader of the free world. Just OK isn’t nearly good enough.
She doesn't talk like someone who I want 2nd in command of this country. That's all that matters to me.
She has no substance and we know what she did in Alaksa TROOPGATE
She doesn't know how DC works. If you don't know how something works, don't try to fix it! Let a pro!
But people watching the debate tonight wanted to see that she could act within Washington by knowing what's going on. She didn't.
She was clueless, and as a woman, it was almost painful to watch. But as a woman, I'm so glad that she stumbled because she doesn't represent me or any of my views.
She didnt impress me personally. She talked alot but said nothing really. It was interesting that her closing remarks played on our fears. She spoke of the way things were, which I took as a direct attack on Obama since his presidency would be a major change in American history. Biden on the other hand spoke of hope, and a better future for our children.
True, but she had nothing to offer just an "act" if anything.McCain has shown now, its all about him and she's a scapegoat/cheerleader for him.The answers were lacking focus and the use of "maverick" so often was more like an ego stroke.I am appalled at the Republican Party's acceptance of this.
She's also clueless. Outsider does not mean clueless.
CNN, you are being soft. Tell the truth. Are these guys not watching what I am watching. That was another castroph...I am not watching. Be real people. She was awful. Dreadful.
Wasnt that a W strength? UGH.
