Repugnicans: Winning Friends Around the Globe
The European Union announced Monday the tariffs being imposed effective that day on American products. The tariffs were in retaliation for a U.S. tax break for exporters that the World Trade Organization ruled was a no-no. The EU tariffs were slapped on hundreds of exports, ranging from oranges to glass to toys to machine tools.

Bush administration, sent the listed recipients an e-mail:
