ST. LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blamed some of the U.S. financial crisis on Wall Street during the vice presidential debate.
"You darn right it was the predator lenders," said Palin. "There was greed and corruption on Wall Street."
Watch: Palin: Economy is hurting
Biden blamed some of the crisis on deregulation policies that John McCain believes in.
"He voted for deregulation and that is why we are in the crisis that we are in," said Biden.
How much the apples cost?
Palin: Potatoes are $3 per pound.
HOW DISRESPECTFUL Gov. Palin!!!
When you are asked a direct question by the moderator, you are not supposed to answer YOU'RE OWN QUESTION!!!
Just stickin' to the script, eh Sarah???
The only thing that I see from her at this time is that she is getting off her taling points. This is a marthon not a race.
GO JOE! LET HER KEEP DIGGING HERSELF INTO A HOLE! Palin has been coached, that is obvious. You can tell she has memorized everything she is saying.
It's more like she CAN'T answer the questions...I'm amazed that her handlers couldn't prepare her for these very obvious and completely expected questions.
I can't decide if this is the funniest or saddest moment in American politics. Maybe both?
Why doesn't someone mention that Alaska is awash in oil money and that is why they get tax breaks?
PALIN and the republicans are to blame for the deregulation.
"Pain" blames financial crisis on Wall St. So funny.
I think she has memorized a so-called speech and that's how she is going to answer the questions. She can't answer the questions because she didn't have them in advance.
What's with "Darn"?!
She's blaming the private sector for the problem? Seems like she lost her place in the script
Why will she not look at Joe Biden, and only into the camera?
she is regurgitating what she has been coached to say
Gov. Palin, even after being told she was avoiding the questions, is still not directly answering the questions!
What the hell is she talking about !!!!!
I haven't understood much of what Sarah has said.
It all sounds like groups of sentences and phrases she has been taught to say.
Nothing seems to be connected............
But it sounds good!
I'm sorry . . . is this your first debate? Are we really criticizing a politician for not answering the question?
Is Palin reading a teleprompter? Sure as heck look so to me.
She says "darn right" to give herself a few extra minutes to come up with her answer...she's doing better than I expected...so far...
enough with the "hockey mom" references.
she hasn't answered one question yet, she is just giving a speech that she had previously written. This is just sad.
What do you people want? A new fiery face or someone who is going to promise promise promise change?
I vote for a man who made a decision to give up his freedom to make sure his fellow prisoners were let free. Now that's commitment. That's John McCain
there are more people in my county than live in alaska, perhaps our mayor should have been been tapped for vp
I can't watch the debate her voice is soooo annoying. Am i missing the circus sideshow?
I'm nervous for her. She's so boorish
