HE'S WITH HUGO:

Obama Vows Opposition to Colombia Trade Deal (Nick Timiraos, 4/02/08, WSJ: Washington Wire)

Sen. Barack Obama promised to stand firm in his opposition to the Colombia Free Trade Agreement on Wednesday–days after President Bush asked Congress to quickly pass the trade deal–in a speech to rally the union vote at the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO’s annual convention.

No one much expects him to grasp simple free market economics, but it'd be nice if he didn't backstab our allies to the benefit of our enemies.

I have yet to hate Mr. Obama. I ain't about to vote for him, but I have yet to hate him.

This one issue makes me reconsider. The self-evident decision to side with tyranny in Latin America (again!!! and failed tyranny at that) fill me with bottomless revulsion.
