Hillary’s Whopper About The TPP

Here is another whopper from Hillary Clinton in the debate. This is from the CNN transcript of the debate:

CLINTON: Well, actually, I have been very consistent. Over the course of my entire life, I have always fought for the same values and principles, but, like most human beings – including those of us who run for office – I do absorb new information. I do look at what’s happening in the world.

You know, take the trade deal [TPP}. I did say, when I was secretary of state, three years ago, that I hoped it would be the gold standard. It was just finally negotiated last week, and in looking at it, it didn’t meet my standards. My standards for more new, good jobs for Americans, for raising wages for Americans.

And I want to make sure that I can look into the eyes of any middle-class American and say, “this will help raise your wages.” And I concluded I could not.

When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, surely she knew that the composition of the American negotiating team and the people dominating our stances were all corporate lobbyists or corporate executives. She knew there were no representatives of the people putting in their suggestions. If she didn’t know, how come she didn’t when the rest of the world knew?

So how did she ever think that this deal would ever be a gold standard of anything but a huge transfer of wealth from the world’s middle class to the world’s rich oligarchs?

She is one damn good BS artist, and the people who want a woman President don’t seem to care or to know.

Surely Hillary Clinton can’t think that Elizabeth Warren doesn’t know how much Hillary is lying. Does Hillary think she can get away with this stuff at least until the election? Well, we certainly know that she is a women who has the courage to go for broke despite the odds. If it weren’t for the scads of money that she and Bill are going to make off of her Presidency, you’d have to feel a little bit sorry for someone who was so desperate to seize power.
