Should know better: Tech Central Station's James Glassman has an excellent article on Benedict Arnold politicians who attempt to hurt the U.S. economy for short-term political gain.
Democrat Presidential hopeful John "Flipper" Kerry, who was forced to co-opt every single one of his opponents' positions because he had none of his own, has been promising to "review" all of America's trade agreements.
The truth of the matter is that Kerry isn't going to do a thing about existing trade agreements. His comments are designed to comfort the economically ignorant.
President Bush and his surrogates should begin pressuring Kerry on this subject. Kerry's already taken positions on these trade agreements -- they're treaties that must be approved by the Senate. If some of them are bad, in Kerry's opinion, then he should be forced to name them -- there's no need to "review" them.
