McCain: Obama policies will deepen recession

September 29, 2008 9:59:43 AM PDT
Republican presidential candidate John McCain says the race for the White House comes down to a basic question. "Country first or Obama first."

McCain unleashed a blistering attack on his opponent as he resumed campaigning, saying Obama favors policies that "will deepen the recession."

McCain also said Obama stayed on the sidelines in recent days while Congress struggled to draft a bailout for the financial industry. At the same time, the Republican did not say definitively whether he would vote for or against the legislation coming to a vote this week.

McCain appeared with his running mate, Sarah Palin, who said she is looking forward to her debate with Democratic Sen. Joe Biden on Thursday.
