It was Bill Clinton that set up NAFTA (he is a southern anti-union kinda dixi-crat not a true northern union type guy). Everybody loves SAM WALMART the Chinese importer...

Couldn't agree more. Clinton pushed NAFTA and China's accession to WTO and still is a believer, ignoring the damage it is doing in pursuit of some vague strategic interest. Kerry couldn't say much, and in fact discreetly pushed for more even during the campaign.

On the other hand, Bush has been president for the last four years when the 600 billion dollar trade deficit job killer has exploded. Clinton saw 22 million payrolls. Bush's pathetic record is well known, much worse than Carter's. Including the failure to enforce WTO obligations.

Don't know what will happen 2008, probably more of the same. Do know it's hilarious that the "values" and forward democracy folks draw the line at cheap stuff at Walmart, that sources maybe 25% total from the totalitarian communists. Just typical hypocrisy. Yeah, we care about human rights. Far more important long range issue than terrorism, but as Bush knows it's alot easier to scare and divide people than implement effective policy.
