Mc Cain and Obama Insult Each Other While America Burns

I have just finished watching the Special Pre-Debate Program from the US Latin Station America Teve. The program [which was in Spanish and was transmitted towards Latin America] is called "A Mano Limpia" [Clean Hands] and the host is Oscar Haza. "A Mano Limpia" had the following guests: Otto Reich [Ex Ambassador of the USA for Latin America and Republican], Luis Laredo [Ex Ambassador of the USA for the Organization of American States and Democrat], Senator Bob Menendez [Democrat-New Jersey], and Maurice Ferre [Mayor of Miami Florida from 1973-1985 and Democrat]. There was a historian for the Republican Party whose name escapes me at the moment.
What did not escape me was the beginning of the exchange of words, accusations, and counteraccusations by the Republicans and Democrats with notable exceptions. Mr. Reich accused Mr. Laredo of supporting a candidate [Barrack Obama] who has links with terrorist groups. Mr. Reich cited as an example the friendship of Mr. Obama with Mr. Ayers [a Professor who once belonged to the USA Radical Group called The Weather Underground during the 1960s']. Mr.Laredo responded to Mr. Reich by saying that Mr. Ayers is a Professor in a South Carolina University which receives funds from a Republican Governor and that he receives funds from the Annenberg Foundation.
The only voice of reason was Maurice Ferre who said that the time has come to resolve the problems instead of exchanging insults. I agree with Maurice Ferre in that the problems of the United States of America have become too serious for the people to engage in trivial insults. It appears that the followers of Obama and Mc Cain are engaging in trivialities instead of addressing what the country needs.
The USA is undergoing a financial crisis like it has never experienced before except in 1929 while Obama and Mc Cain are attacking each other with negative advertisement. Both talk about change but do not address what the change will be. There are people in the United States of America who are losing their patience with both candidates yet the polls and the mainstream media in America [regardless of the language] ignore the symptoms and the problems. There are others who are leaving the United States of America. [Please look at the article: "Renunciation of US Citizenship Is Not A Joke" by Roberto Alvarez-Galloso on the following link: http://my.nowpublic.com/world/renunciation-us-citizenship-not-joke#comment-191209 ]
I am also watching the debates and I see no difference in the two candidates. I am only seeing the continuation of the Status Quo and the debate has no winners only losers [which is the United States of America]. The Status Quo and the US Mainstream Media have done more damage to the United States of America than the people of Al Qaeda and other terrorists combined. It is only hoped that the USA and the World will wake up and realize this. I also hope [and I repeat it] that the world will hold accountable the United States of America for its actions abroad while ignoring the home front.
