While this thread has nothing to do with computer/network security, I
just hate it when political statements are contextually incomplete.
Bush was not responsible for NAFTA, but he was responsible for CAFTA-DR.
The Central America-Dominican Republic-United States Free Trade
Agreement (CAFTA-DR) includes seven signatories: the United States,
Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and
Nicaragua. The U.S. Congress approved the CAFTA-DR in July 2005 and the
President signed it into law on August 2, 2005.
Was this agreement better or worse than NAFTA? Who knows? This is not
a statement for or against President Bush, and it is also not a
statement for or against NAFTA or CAFTA-DR. Both agreements are more
about sugar exports than tech jobs outsourcing.
Now can we please get back to hacking and leave trade agreements to

Prime Minister eh?
I'm such a hoser. He was still blaming the wrong guy for NAFTA, though
the current Bush is a NAFTA fanboi too.
They should just change the name of the country to "The United
Corporations of America" or "The Corporate States of America" and get
it over with.
