OUR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT:
On verge of "difficult" free-trade negotiations (Robin Emmott, 1/26/13, Reuters)
The United States and the European Union are wrapping up final preparations for talks on a free-trade agreement that would encompass half the world's economic output, Europe's trade chief said on Saturday, while warning of "difficult negotiations."EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht will travel to Washington on February 5 to put the finishing touches on a joint EU-U.S. report. He gave his clearest signal yet that Brussels and Washington are ready to embark on the accord."Essentially the report is ready. I will go to Washington to discuss a couple of small items and for a final reading. But essentially we're on the same page," De Gucht told Reuters in an interview in the Chilean capital Santiago.
If it results in a deal, the UR will have some legacy besides continuing W's democratization of the Middle East and the Heritage Foundation's health care mandate.
