Hillary Clinton's Released White House Records show she Lied about Opposing NAFTA


In fact, the documents released today show a meeting that Hillary chaired at the White House on November 10, 1993 where she promoted the passage of NAFTA to 120 people. Reports are coming out in every news agency pointing out the contradictions between her stated positions since announcing her bid for the Presidency and everything before that.

One of the things you would expect of someone who really has good experience and judgment is that they can articulate a basic set of principles and positions on issues that they can run on and defend and that stay relatively static. I'm not saying you have to stick to them in the face of overwhelming evidence that one of your positions has been proven to be wrong, like George W. Bush does, even someone who has good experience and judgment occasionally changes their mind. That is not what we have with Hillary. Hillary gives a different opinion on the same subjects every couple of weeks depending on her audience and what she thinks it will net her. As evidence of this is now coming out and is going to be presented to the American people in the starkest terms, how can one be expected to trust her to do anything that she says she is going to do? How can one really know what she believes or intends to do about anything? The only things Hillary's experience seems to be good for is perfecting how to talk out of both sides of her mouth, engaging in the politics of personal destruction and other aspects of her ruthless pursuit of power that remind one of what a Karl Rove might do. That kind of person ought not to be the Democratic nominee.

It's called passion... ram2008 Oct 2015 #16
It's not passion. Its arrogance and impatience and he is known to have that personality. nt stevenleser Oct 2015 #17
The people seem to like his personality ram2008 Oct 2015 #18
The people rarely see it. We saw a little of it with his interaction with BLM. nt stevenleser Oct 2015 #19
People usually don't react well when others interrupt them and yell in their face... ram2008 Oct 2015 #20
You're supposed to react well if you expect to be at the national level. It's not about you. stevenleser Oct 2015 #21
I think he's been pretty consistent on the issues ram2008 Oct 2015 #23
Nice try at changing the subject. His personality will become clear during the six debates. stevenleser Oct 2015 #25
His personality is already evident Armstead Oct 2015 #46
