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.

    Lisa, I am terrified of Obama getting elected. Why do you not ? Obama not releasing his donations under $200.00 is he afraid for everyone to see where the money is coming from? Like Iran Syria and all the terrorist countries. He knows he would lose then if that info got out. Why dont you ask him why he won't release the under $200.00 donation list ? hmm his terrorist friends names would be on there, no I take that back it would have odd names but their countries would show Iran!

    Why don't we ask the executives of Wall Street to give back some of their bonuses to help stabilize the economy. This economy problem is Wall Street's problem not Main Street's problem.

    Griffin:: I would rather have Palin run the Country then your candidate. At least she will clean up the corruption which your other two candidates was probably involved in. You need to wake up. Maybe you should join the military and see how other people in other countries live. Then maybe you will have a great appriciation for our country. Also, have you seen how the liberal media become more bias to Palin. If not, then you are truly blind.

    Notice how detailed Biden's responses are...that translates he has great knowledge. Palin does not measure up on this level playing field. Sorry Republicans.

    You can see Biden is a true lieing politician. A true speaker at that also. Wasn't it just a while ago when Biden made negative statements about Obama? Gee, why is he nice about it now?
