  •  Free trade is old school (0+ / 0-)

    been there, done that

    Why do they keep calling Obama, the free trader a change candidate?

    When is the mainstream media going to start reporting the truth about Obama's trade policies?

    Oh, I forgot, that's not part of the narrative and all the identity politics voters (most of them, I think) won't care until they lose their job.

    •  Obama isn't a free trader, that's why (0+ / 0-)

      He voted against CAFTA, a truly awful bill.  
      He skipped the Peru vote, which passed 77-18.

      how that makes him a free trader, I don't see it.  Is there another Peru deal that I don't know about?
