    Default Barack Obama notes John McCain's effort to temper GOP comments

    PHILADELPHIA - Barack Obama acknowledged Saturday that John McCain has asked his supporters to temper their attacks on him. But the Democratic presidential nominee said the Republican's economic plans remain wrong for the country.

    I appreciated his reminder that we can disagree while still being respectful of each other," Obama told supporters in Philadelphia. He said McCain "has served this country with honor, and he deserves our thanks for that."

    However, Obama said, McCain "still doesn't get it" regarding the economy. At a town-hall event Friday in Minnesota, McCain took the microphone from a woman who had called Obama an Arab. McCain said, "No, ma'am," and he called Obama "a decent, family man."
    McCain drew boos at the same event when he told a supporter who expressed fear at the prospect of Obama's election that the Democrat is a "person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States."

    Those reassurances aside, McCain's TV ads continue to attack Obama sharply. Some hit his ties to a former radical who co-founded a violent anti-war group in the 1960s.

    Obama noted that McCain campaign manager Rick Davis said this week "there's very little a candidate for president" can say about the dramatic stock market dive.

    Obama said the McCain campaign, rather than focusing on the economy, has unleashed "a barrage of nasty insinuations and attacks," with more likely to come.

    Speaking to several thousand people at a sunny morning rally in Philadelphia, Obama summarized his proposals for cutting taxes, spending more on alternative energy sources and taking other steps meant to boost the economy.

    McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds said some voters are using strong language because they are "frustrated knowing that Barack Obama's plans to raise taxes during a down economy," and his spending plans, are the "wrong answers to our economic crisis."

    Democrats have carried Pennsylvania in recent presidential elections, although sometimes narrowly. McCain has campaigned aggressively in the state, but polls show Obama leading.

    No Ma'am a decent family man is supposed to be an "effort" to temper outrage racist and hateful comments? Damn you practically have to pull his teeth for him to make any meaningful retort. If it were me I'd rip into that lady, I wouldn't swear but surely it would be a helluva lot more than some weak ass 'decent family man' comment. How sad is it that he is so desperate for votes and support that he has to coddle the bigots.
