McCain, Palin Intensify Swipes Against Obama

McCain, Palin Intensify Swipes Against Obama

ESTERO, Fla. -- John McCain and Sarah Palin, facing declining poll results four weeks before the election, intensified their attacks against Democratic rival Barack Obama by raising questions about his character and his ties to controversial figures.

"Who is the real Barack Obama?" Sen. McCain asked at a rally in Albuquerque, N.M., on Monday. "But, my friends, you ask such questions and all you get in response is another barrage of angry insults."

The Arizona Republican attacked Sen. Obama's economic plans, while Gov. Palin criticized Sen. Obama's connections to William Ayers, co-founder of the Weather Underground, a radical group that bombed government buildings in the 1970s. The campaign released a television advertisement proclaiming Sen. Obama "dishonorable" on Afghanistan and describing him as one of the "dangerous" liberals in Congress.

Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor called Sen. McCain "the one truly angry candidate" and called his remarks "another frustrated tirade."
