Obama says McCain trying to stoke anger, division
Source: AP

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (AP) Democrat Barack Obama accused Republican John McCain of trying to divide the country Friday, but he let other Democrats handle harsher attacks while he kept his message mostly upbeat.

Speaking to an outdoor crowd in Chillicothe, Ohio, Obama said, "it's not hard to rile up a crowd by stoking anger and division." He said Americans want "someone who can lead this country" with a steady hand in a time of economic crisis, not divide it.

Echoing McCain's "country first" motto, Obama said: "Now more than ever it is time to put country ahead of politics."

Polls show Obama leading McCain in Ohio and several other battleground states, and he seems eager to keep his campaign on a steady, non-controversial course. As he has done for days, Obama criticized McCain's economic plans and urged Americans to stay calm and confident amid the dramatic drop in the stock market.

4. That's the Halloween Rally
That way he can say it's their costumes. And the huge cross burning out front is to tell people where the rally is.

6. He's not echoing McCain's motto.
His message has always been about helping each other and unity, about what will benefit this country.

McCain is the one who steals from Obama. Dear Lord, he even stole his slogan.

7. McCain is putting our nation at risk with his message of division.
Republicans have a duty to condemn this. They should call for his removal.
