Clinton Slams "Free Trade" Deal With Korea

Jeez, it's easy to see that we're in the full throes of the political campaign season, even with 16 months left to go before the general election.

Now Hillary Clinton says she opposes the impending free trade agreement with Korea.

Yeah, great, but where was she when her hubby was jamming through NAFTA and CAFTA? Both of those extremely fine programs combined to force many thousands of American workers into poverty, into "service economy" dead end jobs, into lifestyle changes that none of them expected nor should have been expected to accept?

Remember Ross Perot? As much as I looked askance at the crazy little billionaire, he was dead on about that giant sucking sound.

So I guess it's kudos to Hillary, albeit reservedly. She's a little late to the party, but it's better than her never showing up at all.
