Palin says Obama infomercial short on specifics

By  | 

ERIE, Pa. – Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin says Democrat Barack Obama offered few national security specifics in his infomercial. Palin told 6,000 people at an Erie, Pa., convention center Thursday that her running mate, John McCain is better suited to protect the nation.

The Alaska governor also says congressional Democrats want to cut military spending sharply but she says this is not the time to do that.

Palin drew boos from the Erie audience when she said she was glad to be in the home state of the World Series-winning Philadelphia Phillies. Northwestern Pennsylvania baseball fans favor the Cleveland Indians or Pittsburgh Pirates.
