NRO's Cement Head Article

National Review Online irritated me quite a bit with this article about the trade restrictions put on Mexican cement. The author takes the tack that Bush could help his chances of winning Florida by lifting the restrictions on the Mexican Cement and making it easier for the people of Florida to rebuild.

Shouldn't Bush lift the restrictions just as a humanitarian gesture? Isn't that the moral thing to do instead of keeping artificially high prices? Shouldn't NRO point this out? NRO goes right for the politics without thinking about the people - which is why the restrictions were put into place in the first place.

Stay You.
