Obama Spokesman: McCain Part of `Do-Nothing Crowd'

By  | 

St. Paul, Minn. (AP) A spokesman for the Barack Obama campaign is dismissing John McCain's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.

Bill Burton says McCain “admonished the old, do-nothing crowd in Washington but ignored the fact that he's been part of that crowd for 26 years.” Burton went on to say that McCain has opposed “solutions on health care, energy, and education.”

Earlier in the day, Obama himself said that republicans are attacking him to avoid talking about the sagging economy and housing problems.
