Ikenson on Obama

Cato’s Dan Ikenson takes the measure of Barack Obama.  Here’s Dan’s opening paragraph:

As an advocate of free trade, I feel slightly vindicated by reports
that the Obama campaign quietly assured the Canadian government that
the Senator’s strident words about NAFTA in last week’s debate were
merely political rhetoric. We’ve long been saying that opposition to
trade is mostly an artifice of politics. But the story begs the
question: Is Obama (a) economically illiterate; (b) dishonest, or; (c)
naïve. The answer is (d), all of the above.
