Obama on Buy American: Talk but no action.

Obama talks the talk repeatedly but doesn't do anything. He probably has other things on his mind right now such as health care, Afghanistan, and maybe even Acorn! This is from The Star.

Sticking to a script? Obama's comments have a familiar ring
U.S. President Barack Obama on the subject of Buy America provisions following a meeting with Stephen Harper:
Aug. 10 in Guadalajara
• "I want to assure you that your prime minister raises this with me every time we see each other."
• "I do think it's important to keep this in perspective. This in no way has endangered the billions of dollars of trade taking place between our two countries."
And yesterday in Washington
• "Prime Minister Harper, I want to emphasize, has brought this up every single time we've met, so he's been on the job on this issue"
• "I do want to keep things in perspective. U.S.-Canadian trade continues to be robust ... There is no prospect of any budding trade wars between our two countries."
