Why are the Dems beating up Colombia?
Pres. Uribe is our strongest ally in South America. Better than that, he is one of the most responsible leaders in the developing world.
Why are we hurting Colombia?
"Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is against scheduling a congressional vote after next month's election on a free-trade agreement with Colombia, a campaign adviser said."
It is insane to attack the Colombia Free Trade Agreement. It's good for the US as well as Colombia. It's also a strong message to Peru, Chile and other countries who want to grow in the region.
Free trade is critical for Latin American development.
Why are the Dems playing this game? The answer is labor unions!
