    Reuters reports: Obama to work to pass Bush trade deals

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President-elect Barack Obama wants to win approval of stalled free trade deals with Colombia, Panama and South Korea, but more work is needed on two of the pacts, Democratic lawmakers said on Wednesday.

    “The president-elect wants to work with Republicans and Democrats to get those trade agreements moving,” House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel said during an meeting to outline the panel’s priorities for the year.

    This would be a welcome departure from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s all out war on free trade.

      Yeah, we sure hope this (yet another opportunistic Obama charade of Obama's) is true!

      Yeah, let's all cover our eyes so we don't see any "evil" to the contrary; let's all cover our ears so we don't hear any "evil" to the contrary, and let's all cover our mouths so we don't speak any "evil" to the contrary.

      Sound familiar? It's the Siamese-Twin to "Monkey see, monkey do", known as "Monkey see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil".

      This is a "Liberal"/Socialist Congress, Obama, and Obama Administration we're faced with, people! That means anything else comming out of them is "smoke and mirrors", and the sooner we all realize that, the better for "We the People of the United States", the United States, and the world!

      If a politician's lips move, he and she are lying. If you believe these petty tyrants, you deserve whatever they dish up to you.
