Sen. John Edwards, answering President Bush’s blistering criticism of Democrat John Kerry, contended Wednesday that the Republican was “completely out of touch with reality” about the Iraq war and the economy.
“He won’t acknowledge the mess in Iraq. All you have to do is turn your television on,” Edwards said. “They still don’t recognize that there’s any problem with jobs and the economy” despite rising health care costs and record job losses.
“You can’t fix these problems until you recognize there is a problem,” the Democratic vice presidential candidate told a sign-waving audience in a warehouse at the Palm Beach County convention center. “They’re in denial. They’re in denial about everything.”
…Noting that the Bush’s advisers had billed Bush’s speech as a major address on foreign policy and the economy, Edwards said: “The problem is, of course, when you got the same old tired ideas, the same old false attacks, the same old tired rhetoric, there are no new ideas. There are no new plans.”
“This president is completely out of touch with reality and it showed again in his speech today,” Edwards said.
