Jobs - The Weekly Standard's Irwin Stelzer says the jobs and economic forecast may force John Kerry to change his campaign tactics. Attacking Bush on the economy wasn't a bad idea. Using overheated rhetoric such as "worst economy since the Great Depression" was. If Kerry had kept his criticism of the economy low-key and within reason, he would still have some ammunition to use in the coming months. Now, anything he says sounds like good news compared to his earlier chicken little campaigning.
It's okay, though. Remember, Kerry served in Vietnam.
