Schneider: Palin being misleading with funding charge?

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/10/02/art.vp.podium.ap.jpg caption="Was Palin misleading with funding charge?"]

ST LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) - Palin is bringing up Biden's comments from the Democratic primaries when he was critical of Obama's vote against an Iraq troop funding bill. But many of the troops funding bills included other provisions, like troops withdrawal timetables.

Biden responds by mentioning that McCain also voted against the troop funding bill, which did include a timetable.

Palin counter attacks by saying that Biden wants to wave the white flag in Iraq. Biden responds by lumping McCain with Vice President Cheney and saying that McCain has been dead wrong on the war.

    Hey CNN...is it your job tonight to try and destroy Palin??? Seems to me that Palin is doing great, but the majority of your headlines have been attacks on Palin. Americans are tired of politicians like Obama and Biden..Palin is what this country needs...a real person who is not afraid to speak.

    That would be leading with emotion and not using our head based on facts.
    That's that Joe 6 pack mentality. She might not say that if she had a real degree.

    Why cannot either of these people answer a direct question with a direct answer? All this shows is that both of them are POLITICIANS!

    McCain has been dead wrong. We are fighting in the wrong place. What a waste of time and resources.

    Palin is just moving her jaws. She is not answering the question. She is saying what she remembers. Spare me.

    Palin is constantly changing the subject and not answering the questions directly, just like she did with Katie. Some of her answers totally confused me as to what she said.

    Despite Biden having clarified this TWICE now with her, and the viewing public, she just keeps repeating the same line of stinking crud.

    If you repeat it enough, Sarah, SOMEONE is bound to believe you.

    Palin just gives non-answers, and serves up doublespeak like moose stew. Biden has made her look completely silly and unfit for the Vice Presidency. This thing is over!

    OBAMA/BIDEN '08!!!

    wow . . . I believe after tonight, there is no doubt, it is over for McCain.

    This is horrible, seriously horrible.

    Palin shouldn't have accepted McCain's offer of VP. There is too much at stake to hand over America's critical crisis in the hands of Palin. Darn McCain for putting America at risk by picking Palin.

    After Palin's "I'm glad we agree on Israel" Biden looked like he wanted to punch her! OMG how obnoxious.
