Your President Speaks!

Today, inNew Orleans, during a presser with Mexican President Calderon and Canadian PM Harper.

Cheney Asks Dumb Questions

One of the things — people ask, well, does it make sense for Mexico, Canada and the United States to meet?

Colombia Goods

It makes no sense to me to say that Colombia goods can come into our country duty-free, yet our goods can’t go into Colombia duty-free.

There Is No “Speaker Of The United States Congress”

The Speaker of the United States Congress has killed this bill unless she gives us a date certain for a vote.

Move Product In A Way

We’re working to make sure we reduce regulations and to add — to make sure that our small businesses and farmers and producers are able to move product in a way without a bunch of government regulations in between.

There Is Complications

And there’s complications on these long borders; I understand that.

What We Got

For example, we got an issue with Mexico.


The last time — the time before last we met, the President made it abundantly clear that he felt the United States ought to do more to prevent guns from going into the — from the United States into Mexico.

What The Process Do

And we put a process in place that do a variety of things, all aiming to make sure that our neighbors and our neighborhood isn’t scourged by these thugs who use guns out of the United States to hold their people hostage, hold the country hostage.

Medulla Ohmygodda

I mean, one way to increase pressure on the border is to — if you do away with NAFTA, there’s going to be a lot of Mexicans — more Mexicans out of work.

Rebellion In The Cerebellum

And if they — if the Speaker doesn’t bring — give us a date certain on the bill, she’s effectively killed it. It’s her responsibility, and she’s going to have to explain why the voices of false populism have been strengthened; why anti-Americanism could flourish, when America turns its back on a strong leader like President Uribe and a friend for democracy like President Uribe.

The Benefits Of Why

And so I’ll continue to speak out on it, and assure our friends that we will work hard to explain to the people the benefits of why free and fair trade is in our nation’s interest.

What We Got

We got people out there campaigning, “well, we’re just going to tax the rich.”

The So-Called President

You can’t raise enough money to meet their spending appetites by taxing the so-called rich. Every one of those so-called “tax the rich” schemes end up taxing the middle class families.

Hoo-Ray! Fourth Quarter 2007 GDP Grew At A Rate Of 0.6%

First of all, I — we’re not in a recession. We’re in a slowdown. We grew in the fourth quarter of last year.

Diminshing Certainty

I think this is going to have a positive effect on the economy. Experts say it’s going to have a positive effect on the economy. And so we’ll see what happens there.

Dood Looks Like A Lady

You know, the President is plenty capable of handling reform. She’s a — he’s a good honest man, who cares deeply about the people of Mexico, and he’ll do what he thinks is right for the country of Mexico.

What We Got

And in terms of President Uribe, we got no better friend in South America than President Uribe.

The Trade Agreement We Honest Negotiated

He has the support of the United States of America in many ways, but if we don’t agree to a free trade agreement that we honest — negotiated in good faith with them, it will undermine his efforts, and will destabilize parts of the world.
