ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Sen. Barack Obama said today that, while his rival John McCain seeks to “distract you with smears” and “Swift Boat-style attacks” in the last weeks of the campaign, he would keep focused on economic issues and what he described as McCain’s shortcomings.

“Senator McCain’s campaign has announced that they plan to turn the page on the discussion about our economy and spend the final weeks of this campaign launching Swift Boat-style attacks on me,” Obama told a crowd of thousands on the football field of Asheville High School. “Senator McCain and his operatives are gambling that he can distract you with smears rather than talk to you about substance. … I want you to know that I’m going to keep on talking about issues that matter.”

The Democratic nominee was reacting to reports of McCain’s strategy telegraphed by his aides, as well as remarks Friday from Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Source Article
