What help did bush give Mexican presidential candidate
Felipe Calderon? I wonder if he helped fix the election in Calderon's favor?

I need to know who went down there for bush.


Any info on this would be appreciated. If civil war or massive civil unrest breaks out, we may have to ask if bush had anything to do with fixing the election and destabilizing Mexico.

1. Not sure he did.

Two things:

1) Mexico has plenty of corruption to go around. FoxCo may not have even needed any help.

2) Bush has been, at this nation's peril by paleoconservative standards, failing entirely to pay attention to anything south of us. This is a classic mistake made by many presidents, again, judging by paleoconservative standards.

3. The USA always supports right wing dictators and that is why we
are in so much trouble in the world. But the dummies will continue to support business interest over the interest of the people. Mexico already knows how to steal elections. Calderon stole it. The people in Mexico have been oppressed too long by the greedy corporatists and rich who run everything.

5. National Endowment for Democracy (NED)
NED is the civilian arm of the CIA. It's primary goal is "regime change", but in some cases, it's job is to maintain and support a regime that is supportive of American corporate interests. Our tax dollars at work doing dark and evil things.
