In a deeply misguided attempt to reassure people about the economy, President Bush showed his concern over the economy by delivering a 3 minute statement that was focused on the financial markets, and not the economic pains of ordinary people. As usual, Bush took no questions from the press, while the McCain campaign has said nothing about the economy this morning.
It seems that the savior of the Republican Party, Sarah Palin was stupid enough to actually still be using her personal Yahoo email account, and she got herself hacked. This led to shock and outrage by the McCain campaign over the invasion of the potential vice president's privacy.
Sarah Palin ran to rescue of John McCain and his comments about the economy during part one of her interview with Sean Hannity which will air tonight. She said that Democrats are unfairly attacking McCain for saying that the fundamentals of the economy are strong.
It is that time again to take a look at how the presidential race is shaping up in the Show Me State. As we all know, this is a very close, important and historical election. Missouri is a key state in this election, as it is the epitome of a swing state.
A Republican plan to block voters who have had their homes foreclosed on in Macomb County, Michigan from voting in November has been legally challenged by the Obama campaign, who are seeking an injunction to block county Republicans from using foreclosure lists to prevent people from voting in the presidential election.
Today in response to a question about what McCain's work on the Senate Commerce Committee did to help him understand the financial markets economic advisor Douglas Holtz-Eakin claimed that John McCain helped create the Blackberry, which seems to be quite an accomplishment for a man who can't use the Internet.
Barack Obama continued his relentless assault directed at John McCain's remarks about the economy tonight in Peublo, Colorado.
This past weekend, Cindy McCain decided to jump aboard the "Whiny Little Bitch" train by crying to a group of supporters at a fundraising event that "the big, bad media" is picking on her husband and his campaign.
As we hit another low in the financial crisis that has struck the United States, John McCain put his ignorance of the economy on full display, by once again saying that the economy is fundamentally strong. This prompted his rival for the presidency Barack Obama to ask McCain, what economy are you talking about?
Here is the video of McCain in Florida expressing his belief that the fundamentals of economy are strong:
While campaigning in Michigan today Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden retaliated against the idea that John McCain equals change and a better economy by comparing McCain and Bush specifically on the issues of the economy, healthcare, taxes, and energy.
Obama supporter Sen. Claire McCaskill was on ABC's This Week program this morning, and she basically called John McCain old and said that his age is a fact that must be dealt with.
In what is likely going to become a monthly event, the Obama campaign announced today that they have shattered their own fundraising record of $55 million by raising $66 million in August. There is little doubt that the combination of the Democratic Convention and the selection of Sarah Palin have energized Democrats.

On Thursday, Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin, who had basically been sequestered by her own campaign for fear of exposure, finally crawled out from beneath the home ice and gave her very first interview with a member of the press.
In her first solo network television interview Sarah Palin appeared clueless when asked about the Bush Doctrine by ABC's Charlie Gibson. When Palin was asked about the Bush Doctrine, she appeared not to know what it was.
Here is the video:
Today Barack Obama, John McCain, and George W. Bush all spoke on the seventh anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and none of them mentioned Osama Bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader who is still at large. Why have our political leaders forgotten Bin Laden?
Former Republican senator and current Obama supporter Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island said that John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate, not only revived the lackluster McCain campaign, but also energized the left.
While the selection of Sarah Palin has helped John McCain expand his lead in Florida, and narrow the gap in Pennsylvania, Obama has actually increased his lead in Ohio according to a new Quinnipiac University swing state poll. Overall, Obama still leads in two of the three swing states.
The event may have been largely ignored by the mainstream media, but Ron Paul hosted a press conference today that featured all of the major third party candidates, with the exception of Bob Barr, who is still trying to get Paul's endorsement. The point of today's event was to promote third party unity and call on Americans to reject the closed two party system.
Welcome to a new column here at Polticususa.com. For the next couple of months, until the election in November, I will be posting a news report at least once a week detailing how the election is playing out in the state of Missouri, a key swing state.
