First Mischa Popoff, and now Salomon Rayek.
"The Lech Walesas of today have nowhere to look?" Maybe the Lech Walesas of today aren't looking to the U.S. because they tend to live in Muslim countries with very different cultures.
And are nations developing trade agreements with nations other than the U.S.?
Oh dear, it's almost as if that wasn't the point of decades of work to create a coherent international trade and investment system through free trade agreements.
Moreover, the idea that Rayek pushes, that the Democrat victory means the American people are purposeless losers who are refusing to sacrifice, is wrong.
Mitt Romney promised 20 per cent, across the board tax cuts, but Democrats are the ones promising people something for nothing?
And, clearly, Barack Obama, who said he would wash Republican leaders' cars to reach a compromise on the debt ceiling, is kowtowing to his own supporters in this. You know, those supporters who reached a compromise last time, just to have Republicans refuse to cut defence spending after all.
There is plenty wrong with America, but uninformed rants didn't help when George W. Bush was re-elected, and they won't help now.
If Rayek can't respect American democracy, how does he expect it to inspire the Lech Walesas of the world?
