Obama Camp Reignites Criticism of Clinton on NAFTA


On media conference call Obama communication director Robert Gibbs accuses Clinton of continuing to distort her record on NAFTA, citing Clinton’s Tuesday claim to AFL-CIO audience in Philadelphia that she “raised a big yellow caution flag” on the issue.

Rep. George Miller, who dealt with program in Congress when it was being passed, says her schedules show a number of instances where she advocated for it. Listen to audio of Miller here.

Response: Clinton campaign asks why Austan Goolsbee, the economic adviser who was accused of telling Canadian officials that Obama’s positions on NAFTA was just rhetoric, wasn’t on the call. Read more here.
