I am happy to hear that Bush removed the tarriffs on steel.
The fact that he did listen to international pressure on the issue is very positive. That it the way the international community works. The US doesn't need to be a stick in the mud 100% of the time. The US was setting a bad example by ignoring international concerns on far too many issues. The Iraq war would have been avoided if Hussein had made a better show of going along with international arms inspectors.
As for steel and other raw materials industries, the weak dollar gives these industries a competive edge. How much more incentive does big unionized steel really need?
Yesterday was a nephew's b-day party. Today the nephew, mom and a niece flew off to Disneyland. Wow, that is quite a treat.
