Democrats with a fresh prescription
for the economy, which has not re-

"Right now the signals are
mixed" on the economy, he said.
"I'd frankly like to see the credit
card rates down. I believe that
would help stimulate the consumer
and get the confidence moving
again," Bush said.

Bush spoke a day after a fresh
poll showed his job performance
approval rating down 6 points in the
past month and 29 points since
Bush told a New York luncheon
audience that Americans are weary
of the Democratic-controlled Con-
gress, its "endless appetite for
sideshows that have really kind of
embarrassed our country" and law-
makers' "overindulgence in perks
and privileges."
He blamed Congress for block-
ing his proposals on transportation,
energy, unemployment and crime,
declaring: "Sometimes I get this
sinking feeling that the Democrats

believe that they can win only if
times are bad. They have a vested in-
terest in seeing us fail."
"I don't think that he has offered
any sense of leadership on any of the
issues that might be able to pull us
out of the economic mess that we
are in," said House Majority Leader
Richard Gephardt. "If he has been
mugged, he has been mugged by his
own unwillingness to lead."
Bush made his comments at a
$2.2 million fundraiser, the third in
a series of galas with the Republican
Party's elite, as he builds his cam-
paign war chest before making the
formal announcement that he will
seek a second term.

Clinton said.
"Health care has to be afford-
able, affixable and accessible. We
need to cut needless spending and
give attention to the matters at
hand," Virginia Gov. Douglas
Wilder said.

"The president of the United
States just doesn't seem to under-
stand that there is a life-and-death
struggle going on in America to-
day," Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey
said in his opening statement.
"Increasingly, I believe
Americans are growing distaste-
ful of that kind of leadership."
Harkin said, "Old George Bush
was over in Rome a couple of
weeks ago. He said there wasn't a
recession 'over there' - meaning
here, our country! Old George

can't get it right. He was born on

Cherrin said he wrote a letter to
MSA President James Green, com-
plaining that he had been inter-
viewed in MSA chambers and never
received the promised response.
"They hushed me. I don't want

to get anybody in trouble or any-
thing. I was just really upset that'
they never called me back due to
poor leadership," he said.
Davies said Cherrin was not
called back due to a breakdown of
communication. "It was sort of a
communication gap between us,"
she said. "We were really sorry about

Tsongas said he decided to run
for president out of anger, after
"watching George Bush take
America over the economic edge."
Tsongas also linked Bush to
racism in today's politics. "David
Duke is the son of George Bush,"
he said.
Brown was more indirect in
his criticism. He stressed the cor-
ruption associated with incum-
bency, and urged working people
to take this country back from the
"politicians sucking on the um-
bilical cord of status quo. I want

and they all showed they are ready
to take on a fight with George
Bush. We may have a lively Demo
cratic race yet."
Most delegates interviewed af-
ter the forum mentioned being im-
pressed with Harkin.
Charles Hall Jr., a delegate rep-
resenting the Retail and Wholesale
Department Store Labor Union of
New Jersey, said, "Harkin has la-
bor in his guts. He is a working-
class man and he understands the
needs of the working man."
And Marty Urra, a delegate
from Florida, added, "I was very
impressed with Harkin. He seemed
to be saying what is on my mind.
He seemed to express my anger. We
need a candidate who can communi-
cate that message."
Other delegates were reluctant
to pin down their support.
"It might be too early in the
game commit to any one candi-
date," said Dan Delia, a representa-*
tive of the International Union of
Roofers, "(New York Gov. Mario)

Asked by members of the audi-
ence why she was not supporting
any of the other five Democratic
candidates, she replied sharply,
"Why not go for the best? Why
not go for Tom Harkin?"

with what he heard at the rally.

University alumnus Charles
Cares was happy with Harkin's
choice of speech topics. "He's a
great speaker. It was nice to see
him talk about economics."
Harkin stopped in Ann Arbor
last night after the AFL-CIO Na-
tional Convention in Detroit.
"We may have a lively Demo-
cratic race yet," Duke said.
But, those elections were
waged during relative economic
prosperity. The tenuous state of
today's economy will be the key
factor in next year's election,
Duke said after the forum. "If the
economy is still in the tank, all
bets are off on Bush," said Duke,
