McCain offers choice to Americans: Country First or Obama FirstSeptember 20th, 2008 - 11:52 am ICT by ANI
New York, Sept.20 (ANI): Republican presidential candidate John McCain has launched another broadside against Democratic rival Barack Obama.
Using his starkest language to date in the run-up to the November 4 presidential poll, McCain on Friday repeatedly asked the American voter to make a choice between Country First or Obama First
Though Obama responded by saying that McCains latest assertion left little to the imagination and suggested that his Republican opponent was in a panicked state, McCain warned that Obama will leave this country at risk, and would not put country first when taking decisions in the White House should he get elected.
People like Senator Obama have been too busy gaming the system and havent ever done a thing to actually challenge the system. Thats not country first, thats Obama first, Fox News quoted McCain, as saying at a rally in a suburban Minneapolis airplane hangar.
Meanwhile, the Gallup daily tracking poll Friday showed Obama leading McCain by five points, after he regained the lead two days ago for the first time since the close of the Republican National Convention.
Both candidates are scrambling to address the ongoing financial turmoil.
McCain and Obama began to unveil details of how they would approach the problem Friday, but they seemed to be giving the Treasury Department and Federal Reserve space to hammer out their rescue plan with Congress. (ANI)
