Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Protectionist Putz)

"I think they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again."

- Commenting on the U.S. Olympic team uniforms, which were 'Made in China.'

I'm not sure if Harry's gotten the message, but if we burned all the stuff 'Made in China' we'd have the world's largest bonfire.

Lets do a little history lesson:  In 2000 China was granted normalized trade status with the U.S...Passed bipartisanly in the House (237-197) and Senate (83-15), and signed into law by President Clinton.

I admit, Harry voted against this bill, but it is the law of the land...In fact, trade relations with China since this law took effect have been strengthened even more, and China is a 'Permanent Most-Favored Nation' trading partner.

Of course it would be nice if Americans bought stuff 'Made in America' versus stuff 'Made in China' - or Vietnam, Honduras, S. Korea, etc., etc., but there isn't much stuff 'Made in America' anymore...And the stuff which is made here is often more expensive, but only a little higher in quality.  The products that are higher in quality are more or less out of reach for most Americans.

Plus, since when are we a nation which is afraid to compete with the rest of the world?  Oh, I forgot - WE SUCK!  We are too weak, too stupid, too lazy...This is what our President has been saying since the day he took office, and unfortunately it's becoming a self-fulfilling prophesy among those who believe in Obama and his party.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. It's not bad that Harry wanted the stuff to be made in the US. For our Olympic team, I do believe that the things they wear should at least be made in our own country. The cost difference isn't that drastic for our Olympic team, and we can save face.

    But to say he's wrong just because of our trade agreements? That's kinda iffy. Let's hit him on more legitimate issues, like the fact that he's a moronic ignorant baboon who has zero capability to effectively run the Senate.
    Among other things.

    I totally disagree, 'best'....I'm sure the Olympic team priced their uniforms out, and paid for the best deal. Just like the rest of us do.

    My problem isn't with Harry wanting people to buy American. My problem is with Harry's demogoguing the issue....Like everything else he does.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but I didn't know this at the time, it goes to my point even more: The outfits were bid out to Ralph Lauren.

    Ralph Lauren is pretty ubiquitous in American clothing.

    Again, my beef with Harry is the demogogueryl

    I don't know who Harry is blaming here, though. The Beloved Dear Leader Obama has increased our trade deficit with China and has zero plans to allow companies to produce things cheaply in our country.

    Name's Alberto, by the way.
