this morning on the news *PW*

Democrat John Kerry (news - web sites), trying to blunt recent good news about job creation, says President Bush (news - web sites) has not done enough to help the middle class.

Kerry says families still are earning less and paying more for necessities like health insurance, child care, college tuition and gasoline.



"I'm running for president because I want an economy that strengthens and expands the middle class, not one that squeezes it," Kerry said in a statement released Tuesday.



While Bush is touting nearly 1.2 million jobs created this year, Kerry plans to spend the next two weeks focusing on economic problems affecting families, beginning with stops in New Jersey and Ohio on Tuesday.



"Twenty years ago, middle class families with one parent working used to be able to buy a home and pay for college," Kerry said in the statement. "But today, two incomes barely cover the basics. And, as you know too well, if anything at all goes wrong — an illness or a temporary layoff — most families can't pay the bills and they risk losing everything they've built and saved for. That's wrong. And we're going to change it."



Bush's re-election campaign said the economy is growing, and that Kerry chooses to focus on the negative in a "misery tour." Bush is running a television ad that makes the same point and says of Kerry: "Pessimism never created a job."



Bush campaign spokesman Steve Schmidt said the economy and the manufacturing sector are growing at the fastest rates in 20 years and home ownership is at a record high. The Kerry campaign is focusing on the 1.6 million households that filed for bankruptcy last year; increasing costs for health insurance, child care, gas and tuition; and overall job losses.



Despite the recent hiring spree, a net of 1.2 million jobs have been lost since Bush took office in January 2001. The Kerry campaign report says Bush has the worst jobs record of any president who has run for re-election in nearly 60 years.



Kerry economic adviser Gene Sperling said it will take time for the economy to recover after months of sustained job losses early in the Bush administration.

"If you get D-minuses for three-and-a-half years in college, one semester with a B-minus doesn't put you on the honor roll," Sperling said. "And our economy does not recover after three-and-a-half extremely weak years of job creation with just a few positive months."

^they're both getting extremely petty, but there are a couple of good points on both sides, IMO

i'm gonna vote for snoopy and woodstock (P and VP)

the snoopy dance owns yo

:pnoid:

I'm not a big fan of either Bush or Kerry... they both have their good points along with their ****ty ones. As bad as it is, at this point I don't think I'll be voting. Unless Kerry chooses John Edwards as his VP

Kerry has done nothing but tell us what bad shape we are in (When in reality we arent in that bad of a shape.) Enough with the pessimistic crap already. Start telling us what you are going to do to make it better, if you can do that Kerry.

I must say I despise the man but whateva
