Ohio debate hangover
1) How, exactly, does the political leadership of Canada and Mexico feel about this whole NAFTA renegotiation business? Are they real big fans of this idea?posted by Dan on 02.27.08 at 01:41 PM
Answer to a): 'No risk, but now you know how courageous I'll be as Commander-in-Chief.'
Answer to b): 'The moralizing socialist Left is just as capable in wielding a whip as is the moralizing religious Right; just give me a chance to show how it's done.'posted by: a Duoist on 02.27.08 at 01:41 PM [permalink]

@a Duoist : I think you are maybe on autopilot here- moralizing against anti-semitism, how awful! Those damn "socialists", if only they would be more open minded and not criticize Farrakhan.posted by: Kurtosis on 02.27.08 at 01:41 PM [permalink]
I'm up in Vancouver for some silly conference, and I'm struck by two things about the papers here. First, they seem resistant to accepting the idea that Canada is simply a province of Greater America, and so have remarkably little coverage of US issues. Second, one thing they did notice--and not favorably--was the whole "we'll scrap NAFTA" thing...

Most Mexicans would agree that we should renegotiate NAFTA (TLCAN). They feel that Mexico gave away too much and did not get enough in return. I think if the Dems are smart, they'll leave sleeping dogs lie.posted by: OpenBorderMan on 02.27.08 at 01:41 PM [permalink]
