I pretty much got over the Democratic Party right then and there . . took another nudge of confirmation, but I disowned them. There are always exceptions, but they do not represent the interests of America. Neither do Republicans for that matter.

And neither does the former President of Mexico, so I have the same message to him as Joe Biden, go **** yourself! And there is no better way of saying that.
Vicente Fox's surname with its original spelling would be appropriate: Fuchs (German for 'Fox')

Both of our cars-my Toyota Camry and my husband's Toyota Corolla were made here in the USA- in Kentucky.

If this guy is raving about John McCain, that's not a good sign for McCain. I'm surprised he's criticizing Bush. He was a total Bush crony and was even referred to as the Mexican Bush.

In the 1980's, my new Volkswagen GTI was manufactured in the U.S. Someone in a hurry deprived me of it by totalling it, hitting me. My new replacement by then was manufactured in Mexico. It lasted six months before its transmission started to grind up the car and its undercarriage. I guess there's a wee tad of difference in quality control betwixt the two countries.

P.S. a former Motor City denizen told me the worst that happened with disgruntled workers in the old days is that they might leave a nasty note somewhere in the car as a "time capsule," or at worst, pee in the glove compartment. I wonder what disgruntled macheadora workers do for autos head for Gr--gos? And by the by, my days of purchasing new vehicles are well over, so I'm not up on which cars are made where.

Sabotage was not just a 'Mexican' thing-------------the UAW crowd had a hideous rap ca. 1970 doing that exact same crap. Which did not exactly help that union.

Wow. I'd like to say I'm surprised about the "retaliation", but of course I'm not. I drive an Isuzu SUV and love it so much whenever I decide to upgrade, I'll probably stick with the brand.

Prior to the self described Pit Bull with lipstick (Sarah Palin) being selected by McCain for his running mate..........I was leaning towards him.

Not anymore. Obama is looking better and better.

Isuzu is slated to leave the USA market probably at the end of MY 2009.

Anymore: all light duty Isuzu's are nothing more than rebadged Chevrolet trucks/SUV's. The Rodeo/Trooper are gone.
