Senator Barack Obama defended mailers sent out to Ohio voters last week on Hillary Clintons NAFTA and health care records, after Hillary Clinton scolded him for distributing them.

Yeah, when you hit these lying, carpetbagger socialists with the truth -— they really squeal like the pigs they are. Come on Osama Obama —— keep the truth after Hitlery -— soon it will be McVain’s turn on Osama. He had better pick up the pace.
Why do I get the feeling that the next President will be the candidate with the fewest scandals???
Is it too late to bring back Mr. ‘Sqeaky Clean’..... Mitt?
Hey nafta is a big deal to people living in Ohio and Bill signed nafta into law the day he took office. there were a lot of edwards supporters in ohio.
F’ NAFTA, and the horse it rode in on.
Obama didn’t lie in his mailings as far as I can tell. Hildy has consistently said there will be penalties and “enforcement mechanisms” in her socialized medicine plan to keep people from privately paying. In one interview I personally heard, she even said the penalty might include garnishment of wages.
Someone needs to find the video and do a side by side!
Its not fair trade rules are not being followed!
Yea.. me too... But, there don't seem to be ANY on the current national stage. :-(
This is so transparently an ACT, trying to hide her true views about NAFTA from the Ohio voters. Good grief, NAFTA and the Family Medical Leave Act of 1992 are about the ONLY 2 examples imaginable of any accomplishments of the Clintonian dual-Presidency!
J. Lo's movie 'Border Town' dramatizes some of the NAFTA afterbirth. Factories where almost all workers are Mexican women, working long hours for practically peanuts, thousands of whom have been raped & murdered trying to get home from the factories, at night, after their shift ends...
People in Ohio were losing manufacturing jobs a LONG TIME before NAFTA ever came around... high taxes and greedy unions are the problem, not a mushy free-trade agreement.
I know that hurts to hear, but.. it’s the truth. In the 1970’s, the street of Houston were FILLED with “rust-belt transplants”.
The mailing reportedly says that Hillary will force families to buy health insurance even if they can’t afford it.
I do think that’s false. IIRC, Hillary intends to make you and me pay the tab for people who can’t afford insurance.
Right, I am pro free trade, but Clinton does not get to run on “record” and “experience” and then claim to have been against important things done during the Clinton 1990s. One way or the other, but not both.
More importantly it is very very important that the Dim nominee will be the guy who sent out mailers against health care mandates.
You mean like the medicaid deduction on my paycheck every week? Face it, we’re a socialist country already.
It is such a perfect extraction from the lying liberal play book -— a liberal accusing their opponent of doing EXACTLY WHAT THEY DO. Since when is the broom-riding Marxist ever been qualified to lecture anyone about MISREPRESENTING anything???
It has been the lifeblood of Bonnie and Clyde since they entered politics.
On Friday, any new hires at the GM plant my husband works at can expect $14.00 per hour and no benefits. The trade agreements have been unfairly enforced and have cost American jobs. I am not for NAFTA either.
That is totally untrue. Cheap foreign steel dumped on the markets drove the steel industry out of business.
The 15 people who were at the Hillary rally cheered madly, took their state provided medicine and went back to sleep.
Obama makes Hilary look like a fool
It's hard to believe that Obama gets this point while Mitt does not.
That'll be a close election
Is it too late to bring back Mr. Sqeaky Clean..... Mitt?
Someone with executive experience and saved the Olympics? Why would anyone want someone so competent and scandal free....
You’re right: Hillary wants it both ways!
I've tried telling people that China isn't even in NAFTA, but I've given up on that....
Scolding Obama? Excuse me? She has no right to scold anyone and I’m sure Omaba didn’t give a damn anyway. See how arrogant she is? Now she is getting some of the nasty back that she directed toward President Bush all these years. Guess she doesn’t like it. It’s the game hilllereee...if you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen. Oh never mind...you’ll be out of there soon enough.
Exactly what I thought. Who is in control and who looks like she’s going off the deep end over a fricken campaign tactic.
It says alot about how she responds to opposition. No way for a true leader to react in any situation.
obama’s use of the word exorcised is hilarious!
When Obama got back “on message” after she had knocked him off it and distracted him, he began to beat her. He has a good deep voice that puts her now squeaky, shrill one in the dust. (She has worn her voice out “projecting” during this campaign. She needs to quit screaming and admit she’s losing her voice, Democrats would understand.) I’m just giving credit where credit is due. Obama had to get on top of that scolding harridan act Hillary was laying on him every chance she got. Obama just comes off as a nice, courteous guy. Would that he were a conservative and didn’t have the Muslim connection in his background. He IS likeable, as much as I hate to admit it.
“Pointing out the facts and using Clinton’s own words are considered attacks and require purple-rage retort.”
I don’t blame her for getting angry: the facts are against her.
He has charisma. Thats what is scary.
Yes he seems like a nice guy. I wish he was a conservative also. I yearn for a candidate that I could get excited about.
I'll grant you that cheap foreign imports were part of the problem..... but, you can't say that high labor cost and taxes were not also to blame. It wasn't JUST steel workers that were getting laid off.
Cities were strapping exhorbitant taxes on these cash-cow businesses... and, look what it got them, dead cows.
I have to laugh that Obama keeps portraying Youngstowns woes as a recent development.
The economy was in the tank in 1974 and has been ever since largely due to union mentality.
They didnt even get the beef. Them Cows mosied on.
I have the same amusement. Sheet and Tube closed back when Barry was polishing apples in a private skool in Hawaii.
LOL... yea, some of em only went as far as Alabama.
Or Texas ;)
Back to you Hillary for swing two.....
Well...I assure you. Texas is going to correct that damn quick. Behold...The Texas Margin Tax.
Probably 50% of retail sales in U.S. counties bordering Mexico are from Mexicans.Whether they are spending their money on American vs. Asian consumer goods is another story. Sufficed to say NAFTA was not as bad as the alternative.
Nonsense, it’s alway a blame the union thing. The union can be pains, but it doesn’t matter when foreign competitors are allowed to dump on American markets. As of Friday, in the GM plant my husband works at as an engineer new hires will be paid $14.00 per hour with no benefits. The union agreed to this.
Maybe you think this is good; I don’t. We are going to get some kind of health care plan for sure now that good paying jobs have been eliminated, are in the process of being eliminated or shipped overseas.
It’s not just NAFTA. The whole free trade thing has hurt American business. All the promises about global trading were big fat lies. the fat cats in both parties became wealthy and the average worker lost big.
I say Obama has one thing right...tax the heck out of companies that move jobs overseas. Why should we be forced to choose between bad alternatives? Every other country protects its’ industry. The government has only a short term view point about trade and is willing to destroy its manufacturing base and ultimately this country in order to run up short term profits.
