CONCORD, N.H., Sept. 12 — Sen. Barack Obama and his campaign launched a promised counterpunch against Sen. John McCain on Friday, portraying him as an aging, out-of-touch politician who would cater to “fat-cat” lobbyists and continue President Bush‘s economic policies.

With two new television advertisements, a campaign memo to supporters and a two-day trip through New Hampshire, Obama sought to regain his footing amid faltering poll numbers, a continuing assault by his Republican presidential rival and rising worries among Democrats about his campaign.

“They’ve been talking about lipstick and they’ve been talking about pigs and they’ve been talking about Paris and Britney,” Obama told a boisterous crowd of 1,500 packed into a gym at a technical college here. “They will spend any amount of money and use any tactic out there in order to avoid talking about how we’re going to move America forward to the future.” Source Article
