DURYEA, Pa. – With their nominating conventions behind them, Senators Barack Obama and John McCain on Friday opened their march to Election Day, with a bleak economic report setting the tone for the final 60 days of the White House campaign.

Mr. Obama criticized his rivals for failing to offer economic solutions during the Republican convention. He asked voters in the battleground state of Pennsylvania to tune out the static that has consumed the presidential race and reflect upon which party would bring change to Washington.

“If you watched the Republican national convention over the last three days, you wouldn’t know that we have the highest unemployment rate in 5 years because they didn’t say a thing about what was going on in the middle class,” Mr. Obama said. “They spent a lot of time trying to run me down and not necessarily telling the truth, but what they didn’t talk about is you – what you’re going through in your lives, what your friends and neighbors are going through.” Source Article
