Candidates debate on economic responsibility

ABC News reported that due to Wall Streets sudden drop in the stock market, Obama and McCain are battling to show voters they would be best to improve the economic state. On the other hand, MSNBC says Obama and McCain are cautious to respond to "America's financial upheaval" but they debated over who was responsible.

MSNBC says Obama placed blame on President George W. Bush's administration while McCain placed blame on Obama. McCain argued that Obama's campaign contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were responsible and he should "admit to his own poor judgment in contributing to these problems."

ABC News says Obama has taken the strategy of standing back for a little bit to devise an effective plan rather than taking instant and potentially less effective action. He does not want tax money being used to bail out bad decisions. McCain is taking the opposite approach by revealing a very intricate economic plan to revive he financial markets.
