Finally, Kerry has alighted upon a simple slogan. Yesterday he hammered the war in Iraq, and reminded his audience that the 200 billion dollars spent there was 200 billion taken out of our schools, health care, and other projects. He called Iraq the 'W'rong war at the 'W'rong time.
Today, he expanded on that theme, linking the deficit projected today by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to Bush, saying, according to the Washington Post, "Only George W. Bush could celebrate over a record budget deficit of $422 billion, a loss of 1.6 million jobs and Medicare premiums that are up by a record 17 percent...W stands for wrong -- the wrong direction for America."
Good work, Senator. After months of scoring self-goals, you've finally found Carville and Begala. It's working. Keep it up.
