Campaign handlers busy behind-the-scenes

Within a minute of Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt's email with the youtube video, Isaac Baker of Clinton's campaign emailed news outlets this statement and quotes about NAFTA:

"Hillary has been critical of NAFTA before she started running for President. For example, here's Hillary in March 2000: 'What happened to NAFTA I think was we inherited an agreement that we didn't get everything we should have got out of it in my opinion. I think the NAFTA agreement was flawed. The problem is we have to go back and figure out how we are going to fix that.' [Working Families Party, 3/26/00]

Sen. Obama touts his consistent opposition to NAFTA. But speaking inIllinois in 2004 Obama said the United States "benefited enormously" from exports under NAFTA and talked about the need to continue to pursue trade agreement like NAFTA that support "a system of free trade in this nation that allows us to move our products overs eas."

What? Obama plays to his audience?


Why do they keep talking about established law? Do they also regret or oppose the Louisiana Purchase?

Move on people!
