Obama Flip-Flopping on South Korea: Copies Bush Policy

He voted against six free trade acts while he was senator and criticized the Bush attempt at this treaty, saying it was bad for American workers.

Now he favors it, saying that it will be good for American jobs. Great. I'm not sure of the reason he changed his mind, but maybe if he had done his homework as a senator and decided back in 2007 that it was a good deal, perhaps we would be already be seeing the fruits of this agreement.

Maybe I'm expecting too much in asking that our American President be forward thinking.
