166. We've been through this before... Did I "really want" NAFTA being "renegotiated"...

 

the way Obama so DISINGENUOUSLY proposed in the last election to get votes from us that were against NAFTA when he wanted to give us NAFTA on steroids instead as his HIGHEST priority legislation (where he's pushed harder on pushing it and all of its pieces than even what he pushed with ACA)?

We've been down this path before, and we know more in this election for the need to judge candidates by WHAT THEY DO and not just what they "say" they would do.

As the poster noted, she conveniently took the "anti-TPP" stance right before one of the few debates her lieutenant had us put in place and WAY beyond the time where such a stance could have actually DONE something to help us stop fast track legislation earlier where she was NOTABLY SILENT on that issue, which is NOT a position that a candidate for future president who would get fast track authority with that bill should be taking in my book, if she really wanted us to believe that she was against it.

She probably knew that a question would come up on TPP which is why she took this stance on it. She probably also knew that she wouldn't get questioned on issues like her stance on H-1B Visa program expansion which she hasn't changed or restated her support for since the last election when she was strongly FOR that program that works against the working middle class around the world to benefit those that want low cost indentured servants under it.

She only takes "stances" on things when her campaign staff knows she's going to get questioned on it in a forum they can't use the organization of how she faces questioners to help her avoid answering questions on such issues.

When she gets in to office, she won't be able to control situations like she's been able to do through the DNC and the way she's run her campaign. Secondly, Americans if they will vote for will get reminded on how who they voted for often times works more for the corporate insiders want they get elected, like Obama did when he quickly staffed his cabinet through the likes of Rahm Emanuel and worked for this free trade BULLSHIT then!
