RENO, Nev. Democratic candidate Barack Obama began his closing argument for the presidency Saturday by asking voters to look to the future while Republican rival John McCain continued to attack Obama on taxes.
Obama, a senator from Illinois, unveiled a two-minute TV ad that asks, "Will our country be better off four years from now?"
"At this defining moment in our history, the question is not, 'Are you better off than you were four years ago?'" Obama says in the ad. "We all know the answer to that." Without mentioning McCain, the ad promotes Obama's economic policies while saying that Obama will work to end "mindless partisanship" and "divisiveness."
The length of the ad, which will start airing in key states Sunday, highlights Obama's fundraising superiority most campaign commercials run 30 seconds or a minute.
McCain, a senator from Arizona, used his weekly radio address Saturday to attack Obama on taxes while again talking about Joe the Plumber, an Ohioan named Joe Wurzelbacher who has become the central thematic element in McCain's speeches.
"As he told Joe the Plumber back in Ohio, he wants to quote 'spread the wealth around,' " McCain said of Obama.
The Republican National Committee, meanwhile, released a TV ad Saturday questioning whether Obama has the experience to be president. The ad, featuring the image of a stormy ocean, says the nation is in "uncertain times" that could get worse and asks whether voters want a president "who's untested at the helm."

A better question would be “are you better off than you were TWO years ago.” The Dem takeover of Congress has been our biggest mistake in the Bush term.
While Bill used the oval office for other nefarious purposes (masturbating in the sink) Obama will spend hours upon hours contemplating his navel.
Looking at all the havoc already done by dems in key positions, yaknow, the ones who opened the flood gates of debt and corruption by playing fast and loose with gubamint and taxpayer assets&proceeds.. I sure as hope Obama doesn’t stroll thru my neighborhood asking that question. I know he wouldn’t like the answer.
My question is will Obama revoke the Bush tax cuts (let them expire), or will he extend them? I’ve heard or read no word about what he plans to do about the cuts. I’m led to believe he will let them expire, but I still haven’t understood his position on them.
We decided to set up a new website over this weekend called “The Obama Disaster.com” to highlight all of the reasons why the election of Obama as President is a very, very bad idea!! We need everyone’s help to gather all of the articles and information about the effects upon the stock market, the economy, small businesses, lost jobs, more mortgage defaults, home prices, taxes, your 401(k), mandatory health care, more liberal programs, more government, the Supreme Court, marriage, religious freedom, free speech, less freedom, etc.
End partisanship? Sure. One party rule. Just like the Chi Coms.
I wish the sumbitch would pitch himself off a cliff.
