Later this week, the World Trade Organization is expected to come out with a preliminary finding that billions of dollars worth of European subsidies to Airbus -- the EU's largest aircraft manufacturer -- are illegal under existing trade law.
During the 2008 presidential campaign, then-candidate Obama regularly assured American manufacturers and blue collar workers that he would enforce our trade laws and protect American jobs.
This WTO ruling may put that promise to the test as the President will have to make a choice between standing up for American workers and the rule of law, or apologizing to his friends in the EU for questioning the validity of their whopping Airbus subsidies.

He will bow down to them. I think if Al Queda came to the White House he would let them take over. He is a coward and very weak.
