SADLY, WHAT IT TELLS...
Bush: 'Warrior for... democratic values' (Mark Silva, 9/21/08, The Swamp)
President Bush and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, a couple of leaders with Harvard credentials on their resumes, met for dinner at the White House last night, a multi-course affair featuring rib-eye and punctuated with vintage wines.
Uribe, in an exchange of toasts before dinner, praised Bush as 'this warrior for the well-being of the democratic values'' and "one great leader in the fight for the well-being of democracies.''
It's telling, however, that one of the best allies whom Bush has courted in South America represents a nation with which the U.S. Congress will not ratify a free-trade agreement.
...is that the Democrats are not similarly warriors for democracy. Posted by Orrin Judd at September 21, 2008 7:56 AM
