By JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - Challenging his opponent on taxes and spending, President Barack Obama said Friday if Mitt Romney and Republican leaders are unwilling to let tax cuts lapse for the wealthiest Americans, they're "not serious" about reducing the deficit. Courting voters in battleground Virginia, Obama renewed calls to extend Bush-era tax breaks for those earning $ 250,000 or less while the two sides argue about higher earners, affecting the top 2 percent of Americans. But he charged Republicans with balking, and holding middle-class cuts "hostage." "If you say you want to bring down the deficit, but...

By BEN FELLER and JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press PITTSBURGH (AP) - Disappointing job growth jolted the presidential campaign four months before Election Day, and the candidates quickly put their vastly different views on display, underscoring the economy as the central issue between President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney. Obama sought consolation from hiring figures that showed at least some job growth still under way, calling them a "step in the right direction" and pleading with voters to stick with him. Romney spoke of misery across the nation, warned Obama would do nothing but deepen it and addressed a disgruntled middle class...

By BEN FELLER AP White House Correspondent MAUMEE, Ohio (AP) - Campaigning through swing state Ohio by bus, President Barack Obama cast his re-election bid as a bet on the American worker Thursday, even as he braced for a Friday unemployment report that will help set battle lines for the hot summer to come. The monthly unemployment numbers could alter or harden voters' views of Obama's core re-election argument that he pulled the U.S. back from recession while Republican Mitt Romney embraces policies that led to an economic near-collapse. A weak report could undermine Obama's position, while improvement could help the president -...

By P. SOLOMON BANDA and THOMAS PEIPERT Associated Press COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Firefighters went from one smoldering pile to another Friday in search of bodies in the nearly 350 homes burned to the ground by the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history.

By P. SOLOMON BANDA Associated Press COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A raging wildfire destroyed dozens of houses overnight and charred land on the edges of the Air Force Academy on Wednesday, while thick smoke and intense, towering flames kept officials from learning the full scope of damage to Colorado's second-largest city.

Among those urgently evacuated Tuesday evening were residents at the U.S. Air Force Academy. The fire burned about 10 acres of...
