NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio, Sept. 3 — Sen. Barack Obama on Wednesday dismissed the ongoing Republican National Convention as a substance-free spectacle hiding behind Sen. John McCain‘s biography and ignoring the economic insecurity that many Americans are facing every day as he continued a swing through working-class towns in the Midwest.

“The truth of the matter is, the other party and John McCain don’t get it,” Obama told an audience at a Kent State University extension campus after being introduced by Gabrielle Neavin, who choked up as she described the difficulties she faced as a minimum-wage bakery employee trying to raise a child on her own while also attending college. “They don’t get what Gabrielle is going through, and they don’t get what most of you are going through. They just don’t get it.” Source Article
