Front Page: Japan Confirms New PM, Poll Finds 18 Percent Undecided, Bailout Shockwaves

  • Japan Confirms New PM:
    Conservative Catholic Taro Aso became Japan's new Prime Minister today with promises to revive Japan's economy and keep the country vigilant in the fight on global terror. The 68-year-old former Olympic skeet-shooter said, "The mission is not for Afghanistan, the US or for Pakistan, but it's a responsibility as a member of the international community to fight against terrorism. We must continue the mission by all means."
  • Poll Finds 18 Percent Undecided:
    A new AP/Yahoo poll finds that 18 percent of likely voters are still undecided or willing to change their minds, now just five weeks before casting ballots. The economy was the biggest issue to most respondents and the indecision stems from not knowing which candidate will help the situation most.

  • Bailout Shockwaves:
    After five hours of testimony in front of the Senate Banking Committee, the details of the $700 billion bailout plan "did not abate the growing discontent,” according to one House Republican who opposes the plan. George W. Bush expressed extreme confidence that the "discontent" will be resolved and said, "I am confident when it's all said and done, that there will be a robust plan." However, former President Jimmy Carter called the plan "faulty," amid news that the FBI has begun a fraud investigation into the four major financial firms involved in the current financial crisis.

The man wasn't armed when he was arrested as he approached the barriers, posted with no-access signs, around the home on the city's South Side, said police spokesman Daniel O'Brien. But police say they later searched his nearby car and found the gun. The man's name hasn't been released because he wasn't immediately charged. Secret Service spokesman Malcolm Wiley earlier said the man appeared to be intoxicated. The man didn't say or do anything threatening and never breached the outer security perimeter, Wiley said. Wiley wouldn't say if Obama was home at the time.

i hope that the new PM in Japan will be in the people's favor now and that they can see some changes happen in the country. it seems like he knows the issues and wants to breathe new life into the economy which is defnitely something that they could benefit from. why am i not surprised about the latest polls. i think that we just don't know who stands for what anymore and it's turning into more of a character debate than a political thing and that's just frustrating to people who are on the fence. well - i don't think that this bailout is going to make everyone believe in the system again, but i think that it can't hurt. i do think that it's a good idea for the FBI to look into fraud allegations since there's no way that things are all kosher with so many bankruptcies so close together. hopefully we'll see a change happen and that the economy will start to rebound a bit.
