I support fast track authority, but…
How exactly is the president going to do this thing he either promised or Connolly reported he said and got wrong. I add that second possibility because Connolly is a typical politician, meaning he lies constantly.
From World on Trade Online — Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA), who is among the members of the New Democrat Coalition pushing for approval of pending Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation, yesterday (April 30) said President Obama in a White House meeting committed to protect Democrats who vote for the bill TPA from negative fallout in their districts.
What’s he going to do, open up an umbrella that blinds the Democratic base to his and Connolly’s actions? Never mind, they have had that umbrella open for 6 years now and it’s still fooling the Democratic base, but I think he’s starting to lose some key constituencies like the Jewish vote, and I think some of that damage is permanent.
Fast track isn’t what he needs to worry about, it’s the Iranian deal that will get this president infamy.
