 A busy week to follow in the news: economic crisis, VP Debate, Presidential debate, attacks and accusations and more. Media and technology are the communicators.

Pre-Presidential Debate.

1.    McCain is vulnerable on the economic crisis and is trying to change the debate by using personal attacks otherwise he will lose the election. “It will not be possible for the McCain campaign to keep the economy off the front page,” Said Sidney Blumenthal, a senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid. Personal attacks and harsh language are used by McCain and his running mate Palin aiming to turn the economic page.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/10/06/mccain-does-nothing-as-cr_n_132366.html

2.    An article published by NY Times illustrates Barack Obama ‘s relation with Bill Ayres. It was the starting point of the McCain war against his opponent. Palin said that Obama is “paling around with terrorists”. Terrorism card is sensitive to the Americans who are still bleeding from 9/11.  http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/04/us/politics/04ayers.html?_r=1&hp&oref=slogin

VP Debate Biden/Palin.

8.    Palin talked to the Americans and ignored answering the questions. The US and France kicked Hezbollah from Lebanon Biden said. These are the basic results from VP debate. Who wins the debate? Republicans said they did and polls showed Biden won. With Palin opening the door for McCain to walk through towards the White House as Hugh Hewitt wrote.
