As Wisconsin voters prepared for their
presidential primary today, rivals John F. Kerry and
John Edwards vied for support from workers, the
unemployed, and those worried about jobs going
overseas, even making separate visits to this mill town
in what increasingly appears to be the start of a
two-man contest for the Democratic nomination.
Speaking to 300 people at Northcentral Technical
College here yesterday, Kerry said President Bush was
overseeing the loss of two US jobs per minute and
adding $1 billion to the deficit each day. Kerry also
suggested that Bush was more comfortable with "photo
opportunity" politics like his visit to the NASCAR
Daytona 500 Sunday than tackling thorny issues like job creation.
Do you happen to know if Kerry mentioned to his audience that it was Bill
Clinton who signed NAFTA into law?
Also, does the self-righteous Kerry imagine that it is somehow "more
righteous" to engage in a photo opportunity at "Northcentral Technical
College" than one at the Daytona 500?
You said Kerry was seeking "support from workers". Is Kerry aware yet that
the people who attend the Daytona 500 are workers, while most who attend
"Northcentral Technical College" are NOT workers?
Kerry seems to be "all over the place" (i.e., mentally scattered) with his
rhetoric and his photo appearances, to say the least.
