Obama's mantra: More jobs, less outsourcing

October 27, 2008

Sitting politically 'pretty' with only a week to go for Presidential polls, the Democratic nominee Barack Obama has kept hammering away with his theme of creating jobs and curbing outsourcing and blamed the Republicans for the mess America finds itself in.

Back on the campaign trail after a short break in Hawaii to see his ailing maternal grand mother, Senator Obama was in the ‘Red’ state of Colorado pushing his economic plans.

Holding the Bush administration and by extension his Republican rival John McCain for the current economic recess, Obama said, "It's time to turn the page on eight years of economic policies that put Wall Street before Main Street but ended up hurting both."
