One of Hillary Clinton’s biggest problems on the campaign trail is the perception that she will say or do anything to get elected.
Most candidates have several things that they have changed their minds on over the years, but as that clip makes clear, Clinton has changed her mind more often than many of her fellow politicians.
Ten years ago, Clinton and Barack Obama were both in the Senate when the Secure Fence Act of 2006 was introduced. This bill would require:
Systematic surveillance of the international land and maritime borders of the United States through more effective use of personnel and technology, such as unmanned aerial vehicles, ground-based sensors, satellites, radar coverage, and cameras; and physical infrastructure enhancements to prevent unlawful entry by aliens into the United States and facilitate access to the international land and maritime borders by United States Customs and Border Protection, such as additional checkpoints, all weather access roads, and vehicle barriers.
Both Clinton and Obama assuredly voted against this fence, right? Actually, both of them voted in favor of building it.
At the time, Clinton said that “here isn’t any sensible approach except to do what we need to do simultaneously: you know, secure our borders with technology and personnel, physical barriers if necessary in some places.”
Maybe Anderson Cooper will add this to the list of topics that he asks Clinton about when he moderates CNN’s presidential debate.
