Kerry Kicks Economic Ass

From the New York Times:

In a tough-worded, focused attack, Senator John Kerry lashed out at the Bush administration today over tax policy, jobs, the economy and health care.

Mr. Bush has “created more excuses” than jobs, Mr. Kerry said in remarks prepared for delivery to the Detroit Economic Club.

“His is the excuse presidency: never wrong, never responsible, never to blame,” Mr. Kerry said. “President Bush’s desk isn’t where the buck stops — it’s where the blame begins.”

He added, in his clearest terms yet of what he views as Mr. Bush’s lack of accountability: “He’s blamed just about everyone but himself and his administration for America’s economic problems. And if he’s missed you, don’t worry, he’s still got 48 days left until the election.”

Mr. Kerry went on: “At that convention in New York the other week, President Bush talked about his ownership society. Well Mr. President, when it comes to your record, we agree you own it.”

Go read the rest. BFT, John.
