VP Debate - Live Blog #5

Palin going on about Obama meeting with "enemies". Nearly verbatim repeating what McCain said in last debate.

Biden refuting on facts. Emphasizing how our allies want us to talk to adversaries.

Palin is referring to her notes more and more. Talking about Israel, wants to build embassy in Jerusalem.

Biden comes across as knowing his stuff on the Middle East. Says Bush policies an abject failure.

Ifill asks Palin if she agrees, again she says "no" for two seconds, then changes subject. Smiling constantly, so phoney! Now she's rambling about change and blah blah, talking points.

Mavericks, ruffling feathers, blah blah. Pass the word salad.

Biden saying he hasn't heard about McCain's policy differences from Bush. Very strong reaction from trackers.

Except he doesn't. But I don't expect Charles to point out this glaring error.

Biden said:
When we kicked — along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, “Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don’t know — if you don’t, Hezbollah will control it.” Now what’s happened? Hezbollah is a legitimate part of the government in the country immediately to the north of Israel.”

Nothing even remotely like that ever happened. Nobody has ever kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon. Fact Check.

But Biden sure does know his stuff in the Middle East, doesn't he Charles?
