AdWatch: Supported NAFTA in 1998; opposed CAFTA since 2005
Obama released a radio ad in S.C., in which the narrator says, “Hillary Clinton championed NAFTA even though it has cost South Carolina thousands of jobs. It’s what’s wrong with politics today. Hillary Clinton will say anything to get elected.”
The ad’s claim that Clinton “championed NAFTA” is misleading. It is true that Clinton once praised the North American Free Trade Agreement that her husband championed. As recently as 1998, she praised business leaders for mounting “a very effective business effort in the U.S. on behalf of NAFTA.“
But her position on trade shifted before her presidential run: In 2005, for example, she voted against the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), and she told Time in 2007 that ”I believe in the general principles [NAFTA] represented, but what we have learned is that we have to drive a tougher bargain.“
How Hillary Played Politics With 9/11
After the terrorist attacks of September 11, Washington politics changed dramatically. Senator Clinton did not.
September 11 spurred her to win pork — large federal grants for her well-heeled corporate campaign donors and pipelines of money for boondoggles in New York — and dodge the tough issues in order to maintain her political viability.
The $20 Billion ‘First Installment’
Two days after the attacks, as Ground Zero was still smoking, Senator Clinton and Senator Chuck Schumer marched into the Oval Office and demanded President Bush give New York $20 billion—the largest federal aid package in history. President Bush quickly approved. What the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy suspected, America learned months later: millions of these dollars were routed to big business and pet political projects.

the long long list of mysterious deaths around her? (just coincidence)
her using the IRS as her personal attack dog? (more coincidence)
back pedaling on her support of the Iraq war? (revising history)
dodging questions about her $200k speeches to the big banks? (they don't want anything in return)
millions in contributions from foreign countries? (they don't expect anything in return either)

Are you serious? This election is the epitome of voting between the lesser of 2 evils. One is a corrupt buffoon and the other is an experienced corrupt politician. It doesn't get much worse than this besides straight up dictatorship.
