Obama vs. NAFTA

We all know that Barack (censored) Obama has been slamming NAFTA for several weeks, including sending out a mailer slamming Clinton about NAFTA.

This has upset Canada. They like the NAFTA agreement.

This is where Obama has traveled on NAFTA in the last week:

Obama slams NAFTA and Clinton

Canadian Government gets upset

Canadian Government reassured by Obama campaign that it nothing more that political rhetoric.

Canadian TV report was wrong, Obama campaign did not reassure Canadians on NAFTA

Today's report, Obama campaign did talk to Canadians but what was said was said to the Canadians was not accurately reported.

Barack Obama's senior economic policy adviser said Sunday that Canadian government officials wrote an inaccurate portrayal of his private discussion on the campaign's trade policy in a memo obtained by The Associated Press.

Of course, according the Barack (censored) Obama campaign, even though Austan Goolsbee is a senior advisor, Goolsbee is not really part of of their campaign.

Obama spokesman Bill Burton said Goolsbee's visit was not as an emissary from the campaign, but as a professor from the University of Chicago. He was not authorized to share any messages from the campaign, Burton said.

Got that?

And they wonder why people are confused.

Either Obama supports NAFTA or he does not.

Does anyone know which it is?
