Crowley: Biden, Palin on message from the top

ST. LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) - A trifecta for Joe Biden, who hits all his talking points right off the bat on the bailout mess in D.C.:

1) It's a problem sprung from the last eight years
2) Barack Obama has a plan to fix the economy
3) McCain-Palin = more of the same

Palin follows in kind, pointing to the fear one might hear from a soccer mom on the state of the economy, and noting John McCain's "maverick" record.

    Biden's doing great. Palin's not too bad but she looks too smug.

    Palin is looking like a puppet who is just saying whatever was taught to her!

    It is very clear what Obama and Biden have planed for the economy. The question is WHAT DOES McCAIN HAVE PLANED. McCain and Palin never answer the questions WHY?

    Biden is clear and concise. Honest and knowledgeable. He is doing great and I am very proud of him.
    Palin,on the other hand, let's the cat out of the bag....she isn't going to answer the questions if she doesn't want to. She is going to get snotty on Biden now. Nasty and mean. That is not what we want in a VP.

    I know that it's necessary to distinguish from one candidate to the other, but I wish they would stop attacking each other and just talk about the issues.

    It's obvious Sen Biden has been around and has gained the experience needed to lead this country if needed. Gov. Palin's 2 or 3 days of preparation for the debate can't match Sen Biden's 26 years of experience.

    If Palin says darn right, maverick or says anything else about being a soccer mom or hockey mom I think I will be sick. I am a Republican and I am so ashamed at the choice McCain has made. She is right she has NOT been at this long enough. Can you imagine her as our President. OMG

    Sarah Palin looks like she's reading from a teleprompter

    Biden is doing an excellent job

    ...and I would agree that Sarah studied well

    We need a Natural and that's Biden!!!
