    Cool Bush scolds Congress on Colombia trade

    Bush scolds Congress on Colombia trade

    By DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writer 15 minutes ago

    WASHINGTON - President Bush stepped up pressure Monday on Congress to approve a controversial free-trade pact with Colombia, saying the deal is "dead" unless House Speaker Nancy Pelosi schedules a vote.

    After a meeting with his Cabinet, Bush said it's not in America's interest to "stiff an ally" like Colombia.

    Bush sent the agreement to Capitol Hill earlier this month, but the House, led by Democrats, decided to eliminate a rule forcing a vote on the deal within 60 legislative days. The House's decision probably kills consideration of the Colombia agreement this year, leaving it for the next administration.

    I heard where Pelosi took this off the table until the "new dummy" takes office next year if it's Obama or Hilly baby we will see how true they hold to the voters.
    Funny part is "W" was probably more upset because he figured congress would not act on this and it would have become law in 60 days. But Pelosi checked it to him..
