Barack Obama is jumping on John McCain's statement that he shares a "common philosophy" with President Bush as evidence that his Republican rival is out of touch.
Speaking to an enormous crowd that filled a Denver park, Obama
said McCain finally gave us a little "straight talk." He was referring to McCain's comment during a televised interview Sunday that "of course" he and Bush share the philosophy of the Republican Party.
The Democratic presidential contender said that philosophy amounts to giving more to millionaires and billionaires in hope that it trickles down.
Obama and McCain are competing intensely for Colorado's nine electoral votes. The toss-up state could seal the fate of the election if the race is close.
