AC360 Senior Producer
Good morning peeps.
We are interested to see what today brings from the trail. Last night we reported that the GOP campaign was drawing fire for what they’re saying about Obama and what’s being said on their behalf in the rallies from folks shouting out things like ‘terrorist’ or ‘kill him’ and charges of racism, code words etc. John McCain and Sarah Palin continue to try and paint Obama as unprepared, but Joe Biden called some of Sarah Palin’s comments against ‘mildly dangerous’.
What do you think of McCain and Palin’s strategy? Are they desperate attempts to win this election with less than a month to go or legitimate concerns about his ties to Ayers and overall readiness to become President? Do you think Obama and Biden are hitting back fairly themselves?
Today McCain/Palin hold a rally in Wisconsin where they’ll have a joint town hall meeting. Then Sarah heads to Ohio to woo more voters there. She won’t be alone, Obama is also hitting Ohio and holding rallies in this battleground state. Meanwhile Biden is visiting Missouri. We’ll be right on their tail, and Candy Crowley + Ed Henry will bring us the latest tonight.
Last night you saw us kick off our series 10 Most Wanted: Culprits of the Collapse. Anderson is ‘naming names’ and offering a list of who may have played a significant role in getting us into this financial mess. Tonight you’ll catch day 2 of this series, Ali Velshi will take a closer look at Lehman Brothers. Who do you think got us into this financial crisis? Let me know!
I guess things are bad when the National Debt Clock in NYC has run out of digits to record this increasing figure. For now, the digital dollar sign has switched to a figure to make room until next year when the sign will be updated by adding 2 digits capable of adding up to a quadrillion dollars. A quadrillion, eek. Too many zero’s than I want to count, particularly with regard to debt. Ali, of course, will also bring us the latest on the markets today, last but certainly not least! See u tonight folks!
