GREELEY, Colo. â€“ Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden advised Republicans on Tuesday to stop slinging attacks at Barack Obama and concentrate on offering plans to fix the nation’s deteriorating economy.

Biden told a rally in Greeley that this election is “all about the economy.”
“If it’s about the economy, talk about the economy, not about Barack Obama’s heritage,” he thundered to a crowd at the University of Northern Colorado.
Biden said Republican John McCain has no plan to help the middle class and noted that Obama was meeting with advisers in Florida on Tuesday to discuss immediate steps to shore up the economy.
Like Obama, McCain has a raft of economic proposals. Lately McCain’s speeches have combined attacks on Obama with discussion of his economic plans.
Biden also chided McCain for trying to distance himself from President Bush even as Democrats try to link them.
