Dan Quayle on Free Trade
Vice President of the U.S., 1989-1993; Former Republican Senator (IN)
I visited three different manufacturing plants and reminded voters that 35,000 jobs in the state depended on exports. I kept hearing that N.H.’s Republicans wanted to send us a message, so I told them: “We’ve got the message. The President understands the problem and is doing something about it. We have a growth agenda. Don’t send us a message of protectionism. Don’t send us a message of isolationism. Those policies will only make your problems worse.“ That was our big disagreement with [Pat] Buchanan. We believed in global leadership, not retreat. We believed in taking charge and being responsible.
