And how do you think he acts in front of USA?

I don't know much about him. But from the little I do know I don't trust him.

I have lost a lot of trust in all politicians in the last couple of years. I doubt that I will ever trust any of them like I did when I was young.

I don't think any politicians can be trusted these days. Honesty in politics is considered a joke. But some people do still trust the most deceitful of politicians; sometimes, looking on, one wonders at their childish ignorance.

Politicans don't win elections by showing honesty now a days. It's about having maximum exposure, saying the right things, and looking good.

A shame I have never known a politican in my lifetime that was trustworthy :( .

Getting back on topic.. I never have heard of uribe however after reading this I can't see much that I would be terribly suspious of.
