Our Pres... Doing it again...

From AP today.

Bush: Now is not the time to renegotiate or cancel NAFTA

Bush also used a joint news conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to renew his call for Congress to pass a free-trade pact with Colombia. He said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's refusal to schedule a vote could effectively kill it this year.

"It makes no sense to me to say that Colombian goods can come into our country duty-free, yet our goods can't go into Colombia duty-free," Bush said sternly. "And yet that's the case. An agreement with Colombia would level the playing field."

OK - The reason goods coming in from Columbia are duty free is that WE DON'T HAVE A FEDERAL COCAINE TAX! Seriously, what's the $$ amount of Bananna's and emeralds coming in from Columbia each year.... My guess, about one BILLIONTH the dollar value of BLOW being shipped in illegally. WAR ON DRUGS: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED???!?
