Clowns in Argentina

Mary Anastasia O’Grady, of the Wall Street Journal, writes today of President Bush’s visit to the summit of the Americas in Argentina. She quotes an Argentine friend who says: “I really don't know why President Bush has accepted to come to this show of political clowns where all of them will blame him for all the maladies that we so cleverly produced in our countries. Americans have to learn that they will never be loved but they have the responsibility for being respected.” I think the friend is on to something.
