U.S. presidential candidates intensifiy competition in their respective battleground states
    2008-11-03 09:00:07     CRIENGLISH.com

  United States Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama and his Republican rival John McCain have intensified competition in their respective battleground states in the final days of the American presidential election.

Obama, who is leading in the polls, campaigned to secure victories in traditionally Republican states Nevada, Colorado and Missouri on Saturday.

At a rally in Missouri, he kept linking his opponent McCain to President George W. Bush, a fellow Republican who is heavily blamed for the US financial crisis.

"After 21 months and three debates John McCain still has not been able to tell the American people a single thing he'd do differently from George Bush when it comes to the economy. Not one thing."

Also on Saturday, campaigning for Republican nominee McCain in North Carolina, running mate Sarah Palin said Obama's tax plan would dash the dreams of Americans and their children.
"Our opponent's plan is just for more big government and too often government is the problem, not the solution."

McCain and Palin have accused Obama of proposing a tax plan that he claims would redistribute wealth, a concept deeply at odds with the Republican party's advocation over recent decades to shrink the size of the national government.

The General Election will be held on Tuesday.
