Republicans slam Obama as US debt tops $16 trillion  WASHINGTON: Republicans pinned America's "crushing" fiscal burden squarely on President Barack Obama on Tuesday after the national debt passed $16 trillion just before the Democratic National Convention opened. The US debt stood at $10.6 trillion when Obama took office in 2009, but by implementing an economic stimulus plan aimed at heading off a depression the figure has soared -- negating the president's pledge to halve it by 2012. Total outstanding US public debt hit $16 trillion late ...

Michelle Obama to give key convention speech  CHARLOTTE: First Lady Michelle Obama kicks off the Democratic convention on Tuesday with husband Barack under fire from Republicans for admitting he has done an "incomplete" job on the economy. It is nine weeks exactly before Americans decide if the country's first black president should be re-elected or if his Republican rival, multi-millionaire businessman Mitt Romney, should get to turf him out after just one term. National polls put the rivals neck-and-neck, but a closer inspection of ...
