69. Look Barack. Don't be backpeddling now. Just don't do it
"Sometimes during campaigns the rhetoric gets overheated and amplified," he conceded, after I reminded him that he had called NAFTA "devastating" and "a big mistake," despite nonpartisan studies concluding that the trade zone has had a mild, positive effect on the U.S. economy.

Does that mean his rhetoric was overheated and amplified? "Politicians are always guilty of that, and I don't exempt myself," he answered.


That won't cut it with the working class, you know the little guys who gave you every penny we could to fight disgusting sell-out nonesense like NAFTA. This is two Obama disappointments in one day. I'm not happy.

Your statement Robcon that "NAFTA is one of the greatest accomplishments of the Clinton Administration" is sick shit.
