Obama to Palin: “You Can’t Just Make Stuff Up”

Associated Press

The Land of Lincolner makes his first direct criticism of the GOP veep candidate at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds Saturday in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Suggests Palin pretends to oppose spending earmarks when she has embraced them, ridicules the GOP ticketmates for describing themselves as agents of change at the convention.

“She’s a skillful politician. But, you know, when you’ve been taking all these earmarks when it’s convenient, and then suddenly you’re the champion anti-earmark person, that’s not change. Come on! I mean, words mean something, you can’t just make stuff up.”

McCain camp response: “Just like so many other issues Barack Obama is all talk, has no record to back it up and isn’t ready to make change.”
