In 2008, we heard a lot of stuff from Obama about the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping and Gitmo; and then in January 2009 Obama turned on a dime and enacted George Bush’s third term on such issues. Despite populist rhetoric about pulling out of NAFTA (which his team may have, a la Lieberman, reassured Canada was just rhetoric), Obama has doubled down on so-called “free trade agreements” like TPP during his administration.
But at least Obama in 2008 could do a plausible impression of someone who actually meant what he said. Hillary Clinton can’t for the life of her. Typically, three days after Clinton answers a question with her “I’m glad you asked me that” smile, news emerges proving it was a lie. Remember her story about landing under fire in Bosnia? And if you believe her vote to authorize the Iraq war was motivated by anything but concern for her future electability, say hello to the Easter Bunny for me.
