President Bush on Thursday signed the North American Free Trade Agreement, a pact he said would trigger "an explosion of growth" for the economies of the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

"By signing the agreement, we have committed ourselves to a better future for our children and for generations yet unborn," Bush said in a ceremony at the Organization of American States in Washington.

Bush said that the agreement should be recognized as the latest step toward an eventual free-trade agreement covering the Western Hemisphere.

Following diplomatic negotiations dating back to 1986 among the three nations, the leaders met in San Antonio, Texas, on December 17, 1992, to sign NAFTA. U.S. President George H. W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas, each responsible for spearheading and promoting the agreement, ceremonially signed it. The agreement then needed to be ratified by each nation's legislative or parliamentary branch.

Before the negotiations were finalized, Bill Clinton came into office in the U.S. and Kim Campbell in Canada, and before the agreement became law, Jean Chrétien had taken office in Canada.

The Colombia pact was signed in November 2006 and the Panama pact in June 2007.

"We need action and the time for action is now," said Republican Committee Chairman Dave Camp. Failure to pass the pacts was costing the United States jobs and complicating progress in Congress on other trade legislation, he said.

That pact was also signed in June 2007 when George W. Bush was president, but the Obama administration recently negotiated changes to the deal to address U.S. auto industry concerns that it too heavily favored South Korea.

Representative Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, told Kirk that all three agreements "need to be submitted in the next 6 months."

Incoming Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, along with incoming Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp of Michigan and Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, have all said in the past week and a half that they intend to move soon on all three free-trade pacts pending since 2007 (the third is with Panama).

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday urged President Obama to act on pending trade deals with Panama and Colombia, charging that the president "needs to do more than promise to 'pursue' these agreements" as he did in his remarks earlier Monday to national business leaders.

In his floor remarks, McConnell pointed to expressions of support for the Colombia deal by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, charging that it's "not enough for the president to say good things about free trade while siding with labor bosses over job creators and the vast majority of American workers who do not belong to unions and who would largely benefit from opening markets overseas."

Poor teabagger.

A TV ad running in eight states blames President Barack Obama for sending stimulus money overseas while Americans are out of work.

"Tell President Obama, American tax dollars should help American taxpayers," the narrator says. Instead,$2.3 billion in tax credits funded jobs in Mexico, Finland and China, the ad claims.

We rated one claim from the ad, about stimulus tax credits supposedly funding a plant in Mexico, a PANTS ON FIRE falsehood. A second claim, on building traffic lights in China, we rated Mostly FALSE. In this fact-check, we’re examining if those tax credits included "half a billion to an electric car company that created hundreds of jobs in Finland."

The first clue something’s wrong is in that ABC News headline. A car company got a "U.S. loan." That’s not the same thing as a tax credit. Taxpayers expect to get loan money back, with interest.

Things get even more wrong from there.

That U.S. loan program? It's the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing program through the Energy Department. And it's NOT funded by Obama’s STIMILUS bill — otherwise known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. It is, in fact, a program SIGNED into existence by President George W. BUSH in 2007 and first funded by legislation BUSH SIGNED in 2008.

Poor teabagger.

Teabaggers blame Obama for legislation, they pushed for.

Poor teabagger.
With much consideration and emotional discussion, the House of Representatives approved NAFTA on November 17, 1993, 234-200. The agreement's supporters included 132 Republicans and 102 Democrats. NAFTA passed the Senate 61-38. Senate supporters were 34 Republicans and 27 Democrats. Clinton signed it into law on December 8, 1993; it went into effect on January 1, 1994. Clinton while signing the NAFTA bill stated that "NAFTA means jobs. American jobs, and good-paying American jobs. If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't support this agreement."

Because it was already signed.

It was a veto proof neocon republican congress.

It was the same with the republican sponsored trade agreements with Panama, Korea and Columbia.

Why did all those democrats vote for it?? Why did slick sign it.? Why didn't he campaign hard against it?? Opponents of NAFTA, led by Ross Perot, claimed it would force American companies to move their workforces to Mexico, where they could produce goods with cheaper labor and ship them back to the United States at lower prices. Clinton, however, argued that NAFTA would increase U.S. exports and create new jobs.
Keep 'em coming!! LMAO The old blame game by the dems.

Do teabaggers have an even shorter bus for the extreme idiots?
Have the kids on the longer "short bus" explain to you.

VETO:

The vested power or constitutional right of one branch or department of government to refuse approval of measures proposed by another department, especially the power of a chief executive to reject a bill passed by the legislature and thus prevent or delay its enactment into law.

VETO-PROOF:

The Constitution provides for two types of vetoes: a regular or return veto, when the president sends a bill, along with his objections, back to the house of Congress in which the bill originated. Congress can override the veto by 2/3 vote of both houses, whereupon the bill becomes law. A pocket veto only comes into play when Congress by its adjournment prevents return of the bill.

The blame game?

Teabaggers proposed and overwhelmingly supported it.

Take a break, you're obvoiusly worn out your last functioning brain cell.

Poor teabagger.
