  •  Yeah, but... (0+ / 0-)

    That's the problem we have from our very own Dem "Leadership."
    "Yeah, but... "
    "Yeah, yeah, we've seen your polls, but our friends across the aisle say... and the conventional wisdom is... and, besides, we're beholden to free trade interests."
    Yeah, we know. We know you have no spine.

    •  Obama's been burned before (0+ / 0-)

      He rather naively tried to insert a "Buy American" provision into the stimulus bill, apparently expecting that all the American corporados would shower him with love for it.  Instead, they all opposed it loudly and harshly, and quickly forced changes in it that effectively gutted it.

      To the American corporations, the international WTO structure is far far more important than any American national interest.

      The Dems learned their lesson, and they will never oppose American corporate interests in WTO again.
