Colombian Free Trade: I Think You're a Moron Mr. President  

So, it's been delievered to Congress now and President Bush has decided to answer all the complaints about abuses of union activists and flagrant disregard for worker's rights with this amazing statement captured by the AP:

The president disagrees, saying Colombia has addressed the issues.

Disagrees? With who, well, Congress of course:

The agreement, which would tear down trade barriers between the two nations, is heavily opposed by Democrats in Congress. Democrats contend that Colombia has not done enough to halt violence, protect labor activists and demobilize paramilitary organizations.

I suppose the death last week of yet another Colombian union activist is just an example of how far Colombia has come in addressing their issues. Well, I guess if you're a moron, that is.
