I wish that we had more reporters like Katie Couric. Say what you will about her, but the reason that Sarah Palin did so poorly in her interview is that Katie Couric did something that no reporter has done for years, asked follow up questions about Palin's answers instead of just moving forward.

Too many reporters today did just what this guy did, they say one thing, the person being interviewed said something completely different, then they move on to the next question. In his defense, he did show some videos and statements, but he put no issues to rest.

It started with the question of the Social Security IOUs, either there is money until 2037 or there is a big box full of IOUs. I am sorry, but that is not an opinion question. Sure, he contradicted her statement, but it is as though every question should have ended with "Well, we may never know for sure, so let's just agree to disagree". The other questions were similar.

In short, this reporter is no Rachel Maddow. Not even close. He did a little bit of homework, as he should have, but if Rachel had done this interview, she would have OWNED Angle with cold hard facts.

3. Once, When I Was Young and Innocent, I Respected Political Leaders
Now, it seems that special interest money finds the most empty vessels to come before the public as "leaders." Greed has corrupted our society, completely!

4. Rachel is such a great reporter. Her show is the best!

The idiot running in Nevada doesn't have a CLUE about reality. Social Security, Jobs, etc.

I LOVE the guy interviewing her.....he's so much smarter than her, but not as smart as Rachel.

"Harry Reid has been water boarding our economy" who wrote this stuff? I bet she has the same speech writer as Sarah Palin.

6. So it's Harry Reid who's been raiding Social Security?
And here I was all these years believing it was Reagan who broke that piggy bank...

9. She says "Harry Reid has been waterboarding our economy"
like it's a BAD thing! I thought they were of the opinion that waterboarding isn't that big a deal, just a little water, right?

12. There is nothing wrong with SS and we can vote to make it better. Privatized and
you lose a huge safety net without support of the people's government. This race is all about how much people hate Harry Reid. Do they hate him enough to vote for a lunatic without a clue? We'll see.
