CLEVELAND (AP) — Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry said Tuesday that President Bush has used the threat of war in Iraq to distract attention from the nation’s economic problems, and he promised to make those issues the centerpiece of his campaign.
“They [the Republicans] sat down in August and made a conscious decision to bring that up and to dominate the discussion with Iraq,” the Massachusetts senator said after making a speech to the City Club of Cleveland.
