The US’ ban on Canadian beef had nothing to do with mad cow disease, after all.

  1. I think it was Bush himself who said that most of these trade (or in this case “trade”) issues would be resolved once the election was over. Many of the swing states and many of the seats in congress in danger of being lost were states where an influx of Canadian cattle or softwood lumber or wheat or international steel would be bad for the states’ economies. In the next few monthts, watch for US compliance with many of the WTO and NAFTA trade rulings the US has ignored for the past four years. Then again, unlike a large part of the republican party, Bush has shown to be fairly protectionist. To be fair, the democrats are just as bad: it was under Clinton’s reign that the Byrd Amendment came through; Bush just wouldn’t chuck it. (I just spent the past three hours or so ranting about economic issues so that’s it for me tonight–I’m off to sleep.)

  2. Right, now I remember why I wasn’t paying close attention to the US election campaign. Good god. Bush actually said that outright? Aren’t they supposed to at least pretend?
