Bush's second SOTU joke:
"Trade brings better jobs, better choices, and better prices. Yet for some Americans, trade can mean losing a job, and the Federal Government has a responsibility to help. I ask the Congress to reauthorize and reform trade adjustment assistance, so we can help these displaced workers learn new skills and find new jobs."
Yup, trade means better prices, but there is a substantial negative impact on domestic workers. Alas, "learing new skills" just won't fix it.
