More Obama flip-flopping

Barack Obama lashed out Sunday at rival Hillary Rodham Clinton, mocking her sudden vocal support for gun rights and saying he understands the concerns of working class people.

"She knows better. Shame on her. Shame on her," Obama told an audience at a union hall here.

HOWEVER, when he was running for the state senate in 1996, Barack Obama supported a total ban on the sale, manufacture of possession of handguns. Now he is denying he said that.


He also sent a memo that attacks Hillary for suggesting it might be in the interests of the U.S. for China to enter the WTO.

On September 8, 2004 at the Illinois Farm Bureau, Sen. Obama said China's membership in the WTO could help the U.S. combat unfair trade practices:

So I think it is important for us to negotiate our trade agreements recognizing that the global economy has shifted… What that means then is that when the Chinese government devalues its currency by 40%, we’ve got to make sure that we bring China before the WTO. The same way that we get brought before the WTO if other countries think that a disadvantage, that they are being disadvantaged by our existing trade policies. [illinois Farm Bureau, 9/8/2004]

Interesting reads in that link of yours:

Clinton: “I Think On Balance NAFTA Has Been Good For New York And America.”

“Two attendees of that closed-door briefing, neither of whom are affiliated with any campaign, describe that event for ABC News… ‘It wasn’t a drop-by it was organized around her participation,’ said one attendee. ‘Her remarks were totally pro-NAFTA and what a good thing it would be for the economy. There was no equivocation for her support for NAFTA at the time. Folks were pleased that she came by. If this is a still a question about what Hillary’s position when she was First Lady, she was totally supportive if NAFTA.’”

Clinton: “I know many people, here in Western New York in particularly and Erie Country, are concerned about this vote, and I share the concerns that many of my supporters in organized labor have expressed to me, because I do think we have to make sure that we improve labor rights, we improve environmental standards in our bilateral and our multilateral trade agreements. But on balance, I’ve looked at this, I’ve studied it, I think it is in the interests of America and American workers that we provide the option for China to go into the WTO.

Clinton Opposed An Amendment To Bar The Use Of Homeland Security Funds To Seize Firearms During Declared States Of Emergency. In 2006, Obama voted for and Clinton was one of only 16 Senators who voted against a Vitter amendment to bar the use of funds in the bill to seize firearms due to the declaration of a state of emergency. [Vote 202, S Amdt. 4615 Adopted 84-16 (R 55-0; D 28-16; I 1-0). 7/13/06. CQ, 7/13/06]

Press Account: Gun Control a “Raison D’Etre” for Clinton’s Senate Campaign. According to ABC News “Running for the Senate in 2000, Clinton appePreared before newspaper publishers in May of that year to say that gun control was part of the raison d’etre for her Senate campaign. ‘We have to do more to stand up to those who refuse to believe the reality that guns do kill and that common-sense gun measures can make a difference,’ she said to the Newspaper Association of America’s annual convention in New York. ‘I believe we need a comprehensive plan to stop gun violence, and it is one of the reasons I am running for the Senate.’” [ABC News, 2/5/08]

Clinton: Lobbyists “Represent Real Americas.”

Very interesting indeed...
