Democratic US Presidential hopeful Barack Obama has come out swinging - and he needs to. The latest betting action reflects that Obama's odds have been reduced further from an August high of -210 down to -170 at Bookmaker.com, part of the oldest established offshore sports book - BetCRIS.com.

Bookmaker continues to take very sharp action on McCain, including that $20,000 bet we told you about just two weeks ago.

For gamblers liking Obama, this may be the best time to bet him.

Barack Obama made his first direct criticism of Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin on Saturday, saying she pretends to oppose spending earmarks when she actually has embraced them.

Speaking to 800 people at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds in Terre Haute, Ind., the Democratic presidential nominee ridiculed John McCain and his running mate, the Alaska governor, for describing themselves as agents of change at this week's GOP convention.

"Don't be fooled," Obama told the crowd surrounding him in a large barn. "John McCain's party, with the help of John McCain, has been in charge" for nearly eight years.

Obama also responded to McCain's "Change" speech by saying "Suddenly he's the change agent....They must think you're stupid."

In regard to Palin, Obama said "I know the governor of Alaska has been saying she's change, and that's great," Obama said. "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."

As governor, Palin originally supported earmarks for a controversial Alaska project dubbed the "bridge to nowhere." But she dropped her support after the state's likely share of the cost rose. She hung onto $27 million to build the approach road to the bridge.
