It's been nearly a week since the Nancy Pelosi-led press conference where they announced they had come to agreement with the Bush administration on future trade agreements.
Let's not forget that ALL fair traders within the Democratic party were left out of the negotiation. Also, they STILL haven't released the final text of the deal and continue to keep it a secret even from members of their own party - why is that? Why did Rahm Emanuel cancel the debate that was supposed to take place within the Democratic caucus?
I'll tell you why, because Emanuel is a sell out. He's the same clown that helped push NAFTA through Congress with the help of K Street lobbyists for the Clinton administration. He also supported our free trade deal with China and demanded Democrats support it. How did that turn out for us?
Listening to the DLC Democrats on trade policy is like listening to the American Enterprise Institute on Iraq policy. They have both been PROVEN to be wrong SO many times that why would anyone take them seriously? These guys are in it for their own pocketbook and they don't give a damn about the middleclass or the majority of the Democratic party.
EVERY SINGLE trade deal that's been passed has been a disaster for the American worker - every one of them. Idiots like Tom Friedman don't even read the agreements or even understand the acronyms (see CAFTA) before they pen cheerleading editorials supporting them. These people are destroying our country and WE allow them to do it.
Well I've had enough, and if they continue down this path then I will no longer support the Democratic party. It doesn't mean that I won't support certain candidates but I cannot and will not prop up a party that only serves to undermine this country and its citizens.
The DLC and its supporters can go to hell...
