Hillary’s worst response to her serial flip flopping problem during Tuesday’s debate.
During the debate, she said this about the Trans-Pacific Partnership: “I did say, I hoped it would be the gold standard’” of trade agreements.
No, no, no…that’s not true. “Hope” nothing!
This is also what she said about TPP:
Clinton didn’t say a word about mere “hope” as she traveled about the world promoting it. She helped develop TPP.
In November 2012, in Australia, she declared the Trans-Pacific deal “sets the gold standard in trade agreements,” a sentiment she echoed in many venues.
Clinton said in the debate that when she looked at the final agreement last week, “it didn’t meet my standards.”
HOWEVER, the final agreement dropped or changed some provisions that liberal activist groups — progressive wing of which she claims to be one — had strongly criticized.
“Even some Democrats believe you change your positions based on political expediency,” Cooper said. “You were against same-sex marriage, now you are for it. You defended President Obama’s immigration policies, now you say they are too harsh. You supported his trade deal dozens of times … now suddenly last week you are against it.”
“Will you say anything to get elected?” he asked.
Clinton said she has “been very consistent” over the course of her life, but she has also absorbed new information throughout her life. This trade deal, the one she promoted, didn’t meet her standards after it was improved to meet her party’s demands?
ANDERSON COOPER TRIED AGAIN
“Secretary Clinton, with all due respect, the question is really about political expediency,” he said, asking her if she changes her political identity based on who she is talking to.
“I think like most people I know, I have a range of views, but they are rooted in my values and experience,” she replied.
SOME OF HILLARY’S FLIP FLOPS
Hillary Clinton flip flops on everything. She checks the polls and then goes with the popular position. She flip-flopped on gay marriage, NAFTA, TPP, illegal immigration – giving licenses to people here illegally, on Super PAC Donors, Iraq War, needing Russia’s help in Syria, Keystone XL, gun control et al.
Here are a few of the flip flops:
