Okay, I'll blog BrinkLindsey's appreciation of the Bush Administration's plan to eliminate tariffs on industrial goods by 2015. Everybody else seems to be. But really, I'm getting tired of this Administration's penchant for putting out bold plans and then following up weakly. I'd like for once to be surprised by a soft speech being followed up by bold action.

And let me say this as well: Iraq is a test of the Bush Administration's ability to get anything done in the international arena, on any front. If we wind up being Blixed by the U.N., and Saddam is still there, and still armed, in a year, nothing the President says - on any topic - will be taken seriously abroad. And that includes on trade.
