Remember Hillary’s reaction to Barack Obama’s declaration during the July Democrat debate that he’d meet with leaders of rogue nations like Iran “without preconditions” if he were elected? She called it “irresponsible and frankly naive.”
Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday called rival Barack Obama’s debate claim that he’d be willing to meet with leaders of rogue nations “irresponsible and frankly naive.”
And when she was asked the same question at that debate she said she wouldn’t do such a thing:
In the debate, Obama was asked if he would be willing to meet — without precondition — in the first year of his presidency with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea.
“I would,” he responded.
Clinton said she would not.
But poll numbers must be telling her something different these days. Here’s her response (twice) to the same question yesterday:
But asked about it Thursday by a voter, the New York senator said twice that she, too, would negotiate with Iran “with no conditions.”
“I would engage in negotiations with Iran, with no conditions, because we don’t really understand how Iran works. We think we do, from the outside, but I think that is misleading,” she said at an apple orchard.
So is she directly contradicting her own response from July?
…or just admitting she’s irresponsible and frankly naive…
