Palin Mistates Biden comment on Barack Obama


Sarah Palin misrepresented to a campaign audience Thursday what her Democratic counterpart Joe Biden has said about Barack Obama‘s ability to handle a foreign crisis.

“Sen. Obama‘s own running mate, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has informed us that a serious international crisis is certain if Obama is elected and that he is not ready to deal with it,” Palin told thousands of supporters at a rally in this western Ohio city.

Poll: Joe Biden wins debate, Palin exceeds expectations
A national poll of people who watched the vice presidential debate suggests that Democratic Sen. Joe Biden won but also hints that Republican Gov. Sarah Palin exceeded expectations.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey is not a measurement of the views of all Americans, since only people who watched the debate were questioned.

Fifty-one percent of those polled thought Biden did the best job in Thursday night’s debate, while 36 percent thought Palin did the best job.

But respondents said the folksy Palin was more likable, scoring 54 percent to Biden‘s 36 percent.

Sen. Joe Biden gave a knowledgeable but restrained performance in Thursday night’s Debate, while Gov. Sarah Palin sought to show that her accomplishments as governor and mayor prove she is qualified to be vice president.

Biden slammed John McCain, saying that “he has been no maverick on the issues that matter to people lives,” but his only challenge to Palin was asking her to articulate a policy on the Iraq war.

Palin pushed her “track record of reform” and said she and McCain are a ” team of mavericks.”

“We’re known for putting partisan politics aside to just get the job done,” she said.

Sarah Palin tried to paint Barack Obama as “dangerous” for being open to meeting with rogue leaders without preconditions.

“An issue like that taken up by a presidential candidate goes beyond naivete and goes beyond poor judgment,” Palin said.
