Hillary on Pacific Trade Pact: She Was For It Before She Was Against It

Hillary must be getting desperate. With news leaking out that organized labor, the Teamsters in particular, are withholding an endorsement and might even endorse a Republican next year, Hillary is desperate to keep unions in the fold. Even if she holds off Bernie Sanders and Slow-Joe, without strong union support she probably can’t win in November.

So today Hillary announced that she opposes the new Pacific trade agreement that she helped negotiate while she was secretary of state. So she’s not only running against the free trade legacy of her husband and against President Obama—she’s running against herself.

In her recent book she wrote about how the trade deal in the making was “the economic pillar of our strategy in Asia.” But of course since no one read her book I suppose she thinks she can get away with it. Heh.
