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.
Biden tried blaming McCain on the Wall Street issue, when it was actually the Democrates that pushed for deregulation of Wall Street practices...
Who said pitbulls with lipstick weren't trainable? What an idiot.
Will somebody please pull her off the stage . . . . she is creating her own topics and trying to steer the discussion. Thank goodness the moderator is refocusing her!
This still has an hour...
In the beginning she kept saying the word Barometer. This is a barometer for this...this is a barometer for that...does she know what the word means? George Bush has been reincarnated in female form...dear lord...no wonder John McCain picked her, he's in love with Bush
Can't seem to understand why Palin can't answer the questions asked to her.
when will the main stream media start calling this lady on her lie's? I could have debated the Senator tonight if I was as rehearsed as Palin
It is unreal how stupid this woman is.. Go back to Alaska please.
This lady doesnt thinks for herself! How can a person like this run for VP. I don't get it.
What a fantastic lady. She`should me president!
So painful. How could we have a VP like Palin. She can't speak and she can't answer the questions!
Palin is tough but she is not prepared. And this only shows that maybe in a couple of years she would be ready but not now. She is trying but I think her experie nce is lacking. She keeps talking about what she did as a GOV. every answer she goes back to that. I think she would make a GREAT GOVENOR NOT VICE PRESIDENT. I just would not be comfortable with that AND I would be more comfortable with BIDEN running for president so I am still in the middle of this election? and yes that is a question.
Hey Becky in Ohio, you know why there is oil money in AK? Because there is oil there. And the tax breaks are great! Of course, I'm sure you think that is a communist action. Heck, joe just admitted the tax breaks are what they want to do!
James..... She ran a excutive office. She has more experience then the other three candidates.
Poor Sarah! "Nice to you!, can I call you Joe?"
Listen to the debate before you judge these guys. Give both of them a chance to state their views. Of course, Palin has been coached. So has Biden.
Scripted is what this all about, she is only saying what they told her to say and not answering any questions!
Apparently she has forgotten that one of his top advisors works for a consulting firm that contracts with Frannie and Freddie.
OMG I dont think I can bare watching Palin any longer, can she answer a flippin question already?!
John McCain just lost the election! Sarah, go back to Alaska and take care of your family. Once you opened your mouth tonight, the campaign was over.
I am a republican (I know you don't see that much on this page).. don't yell it me dems and continue dividing america.. Sarah palin knows what she is doing and it is showing..
student has become the master
Palin just doesnt get it , she is able to talk about nothing forever. has NO facts
Biden is hitting on all cylinders
One fantastic lady!! She is so smart. She should be the presidential candidate.
