Washington, Sept.5 : Democratic presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama has given a stinging reminder to his Republican opponents to concentrate on delivering on their promises to the American people, rather than focusing their attention on his "perceived" shortcomings.
Responding to Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's charge that he was seeking to turn the clock back, CBS quoted Obama as saying: "You're hearing an awful lot about me, most of which is not true."What you're not hearing about is you."
He further went on to tell workers in Philadelphia that: "You haven't heard a word about how we're going to deal with any aspect of the economy that is affecting you and your pocketbook."
In Virginia, running mate Joe Biden echoed that complaint.
"Not one time did I hear the phrase middle class pass their (Republican) lips," he said.
Obama said he was not surprised by the Republican rhetoric.
"I've been called worse on the basketball court. It's not that big of a deal," he said.
