The report that the Clinton campaign reassured Canadian officials over NAFTA bashing, which mentioned here on Thursday, turns out to be false, a result of some confusion and bad reporting. David Frum sorts it out. Yes, Hillary may be lying on trade, but only Obama has an adviser who’s politically inept enough to say so.
(One could be forgiven for wondering why Austan Goolsbee hasn’t been fired over this episode; it was certainly more damaging than the “monster” comment that got Samantha Power canned. But I suspect that the “monster” episode was just a convenient excuse to shove Power out before her foreign policy views drew more scrutiny.)
