    I changed my permalink so it could include the title in it along with the 3 digit number required by google news yesterday and I put up some new articles but none of them were picked up by the google news bot, I posted 3 articles today and put the permalink back to the original style I did when I sent in my site to google news and got accepted and all 3 of those articles were on google news.

    If anyone knows how I can change my permalinks url please tell me, I noticed when I had my permalink url SEO friendly with the article title in it my traffic was way higher, now even though I am with Google news my traffic actually dropped down.

    Do I have to resubmit my site to google news?

    You shouldn't have to resubmit the site to Google - i've changed my permalinks in Drupal quite a few times and had no issues with Google News picking it up - just ensure that you are also feeding Google the sitemap in requested news format [they've just changed it by the way] as well as the regular sitemap. You'll get picked up this way.

    well you can send in the site to google news randomly it doesn't have to be your site, but if you are a representative/owner they will ask you questions and I believe you have a better chance of getting accepted.
