President Bush today sidestepped a direct question about whether he'd be willing to categorically deny there is a plan to create the North American Union.Here's that portion of Bush's thoughts:
Instead, he ridiculed those who believe that is taking place as conspiracy theorists.
"We represent three great nations. We each respect each other's sovereignty. You know, there are some who would like to frighten our fellow citizens into believing that relations between us are harmful for our respective peoples. I just believe they're wrong. I believe it's in our interest to trade; I believe it's in our interest to dialogue; I believe it's in our interest to work out common problems for the good of our people.Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper also got his digs in, saying there wasn't going to be a NAFTA superhighway and that it wasn't going to be "interplanetary" either. He also stated that much of the talks involved jellybean standards. What a joker!
"And I'm amused by some of the speculation, some of the old – you can call them political scare tactics. If you've been in politics as long as I have, you get used to that kind of technique where you lay out a conspiracy and then force people to try to prove it doesn't exist. That's just the way some people operate. I'm here representing my nation. I feel strongly that the United States is a force for good, and I feel strongly that by working with our neighbors we can a stronger force for good.
"So I appreciate that question. I'm amused by the difference between what actually takes place in the meetings and what some are trying to say takes place. It's quite comical, actually, when you realize the difference between reality and what some people are talking on TV about."
