Obama lied, relations with Canada died

Posted by Richard on March 3, 2008

So let me see if I've got this straight: Sen. Obama and Sen. Clinton, campaigning in Ohio, both denounced free trade, and Obama promised the adoring, fainting throngs that when he becomes President, he'll scrap NAFTA. Then, Canada's CTV network reported that Obama's campaign had previously contacted the Canadian government to assure them that the anti-NAFTA talk was just to fool the rubes.

The Obama campaign called the CTV story a lie and a smear.  So CTV named names — Austan Goolsbee, Obama's chief economic advisor, and the Canadian Consulate General in Chicago — and confirmed the story with a "high level source" in the Canadian government.

Well, it turned out that one of the consular staff who attended the meeting with Goolsbee took notes. The Canadian government, apparently more than a little annoyed by the Obama campaign, has widely circulated his memo, which confirmed the CTV account of the meeting. 

The Obama campaign, in a hole and still digging, insists that the Canadians are either stupid or liars.

Won't it be great when Obama restores respect and affection for America throughout the world? 

No word yet on what the rubes in Ohio think about this cynical pandering.
