In Pennsylvania, Kerry said the race is about Bush's policies that "have taken America backward" on the economy, wages, health care and the environment.
"This race is about the last four years and the next four years," Kerry said. "They've made the wrong choices. They've got the wrong policies. They're moving in the wrong direction."
"George W. Bush wishes he and I had the same position on Iraq but wishing doesn't make it so."
"I have said repeatedly that when it comes to Iraq, I wouldn't have done just one thing differently, I would have done almost everything differently. George Bush's wrongheaded, go-it-alone Iraq policy has created a quagmire, costing us $200 billion and counting. As a result, George Bush is shortchanging America on everything from education to health care to job creation - making it more difficult to meet our needs here at home." - John Kerry
