Uh, You're Kidding, Right?

Hitlary lies?
Clinton Lie Kills Her Credibility on Trade Policy


Now that we know from official records of her time as First Lady that Clinton was the featured speaker at a closed-door session where 120 women opinion leaders were hectored to pressure their congressional representatives to approve NAFTA; now that we know from ABC News reporting on the session that "her remarks were totally pro-NAFTA" and that "there was no equivocation for her support for NAFTA at the time;" now that we have these details confirmed, what should we make of Clinton's campaign claim that she was never comfortable with the militant free-trade agenda that has cost the United States hundreds of thousands of union jobs, that has idled entire industries, that has saddled this country with record trade deficits, undermined the security of working families in the US and abroad, and has forced Mexican farmers off their land into an economic refugee status that ultimately forces them to cross the Rio Grande River in search of work?

As she campaigns now, Clinton says, "I have been a critic of NAFTA from the very beginning."

But the White House records confirm that this is not true.

Her statement is, to be precise, a lie.

And we must all now recognize that when Hillary Clinton speaks about trade policy, she begins with a lie so blatant--that she's been "a critic of NAFTA from the very beginning"--that everything else she says must be viewed as suspect.
Well, no fucking shit.

I enjoy how her being a woman hasn't factored into any of this.
When me and my girls do something this blatently basackwards, we typically come back with "I must have been drunk cuz that was the week that guy screwed me over" or "I was totally high from the swiss chocolate my boss brought back from vacation, I was agreeing with everything, but once Flo came and went I came back to my senses" or something like that.
Glad we are so PC conscious that these excuses are mild compared to "she's a lying political yea-sayer who is trying to get on whatever bandwagon is riding by". At least she blends in with the rest of the hill even when she is on the rag, that's comforting.
