Jim Hoagland/Washington Post: Obama should create North American Union
Washington Post columnist Jim Hoagland offers "The Orthodoxy of Hope". After informing us that Fidel Castro thinks Barack Obama is "the most progressive candidate for the U.S. presidency,", Hoagland says:
Here's one example of new thinking [Obama] should pursue: The United States should apply to relations with hemispheric neighbors many of the lessons of the European Union and its half-century of economic and political integration. A functioning American Union that pools sovereignty is a goal worth introducing now. But that quest cannot start by tearing down the North American Free Trade Agreement and other hemispheric trade accords. A President Obama has to be willing to sit down with the prime minister of Canada and the president of Mexico without preconditions, such as demands for treaty renegotiations.
In the past, the Washington Post's "Fact Checker", Michael Dobbs, pronounced the NAFTA Superhighway a myth. Now, the grander scheme of a North American Union is being promoted in his newspaper. Expect to see more articles attempting to mainstream the idea, as hacks switch from denying it to trying to sell it. Note also that Barack Obama came out for Bush's SPP.gov, a possible precursor to a NAU.

Gee..and I thought they opposed everything Bush stood for.duh!!!..except if the demorats and the media are pushing it for themselves. Know that all who push for this are thinking solely of their own benefits. To hell with the citizens of this country. What really galls me is the veterans who fought for this country and the namby pambies like Bush et al are the ones willing to give it all away!!!
