If memory serves me she was recently in favor of this trade deal. Sounds like a classic flip flop in order to gain more liberal votes. I understand it&rsquo;s politics but between this flip flop and Hillary&rsquo;s email problems how can Democrats trust her and continue to support her? &shy;&mdash;&nbsp; I&rsquo;m Not Perfect But<br />\n Dear Not Perfect: &nbsp;<br />\n Many Democrats continue to support Mrs. Clinton because they despise Republicans so much they are willing to sacrifice any semblance of principles and vote for a lying, reckless candidate who feels entitled to the presidency.&nbsp; Although I disagree with them politically, at least the other Democrats running for the presidency &mdash; Bernie Sanders, Lincoln Chafee, and Martin O&rsquo;Malley &shy;&mdash; appear to be true to their liberal word and as of this column don&rsquo;t appear to be ethically challenged.<br />\n CNN reported Hillary supported the agreement 45 times.&nbsp; In fact while Secretary of State she actually helped craft the agreement and praised it publically, even referring to it as the &ldquo;gold standard in trade agreements.&rdquo;&nbsp; In her recent &ldquo;memoir&rdquo; Hard Choices, Mrs. Clinton acknowledged the deal wasn&rsquo;t perfect but said that it would still benefit American workers.<br />\n So what exactly changed in the agreement that caused her to flip flop? China? No. Some type of tariff? No. Clean air regulations? No. Bernie Sanders rising in the polls? Ding ding ding. Nobody in the media is even trying to deny that Hillary&rsquo;s decision is anything but a move to out-liberal the socialist Sanders. Hillary is moving so far to the left, the only action remaining to give her some liberal street cred is to burn her bra.<br />\n Hillary has more flip flops than a Florida souvenir stand and if Joe Biden enters the race she will have to flop even more to separate herself from the very Obama administration in which she once served. Talk about threading a political needle.<br />\n According to an article in The Hill, &ldquo;More broadly the former first lady said there are still a lot of unanswered questions (about the TPP agreement) and that sometimes agreements look great on paper but are in fact not that great.&rdquo; If only Mrs. Clinton used that same logic with the Iran nuclear deal.<br />\n Let me get this straight; with Iranian leadership screaming &ldquo;Death to America,&rdquo; Hillary officially supports an Iran deal that not only looks bad on paper but to paraphrase her own words &ldquo;is in fact not that great.&rdquo; Maybe she&rsquo;ll flip flop on this one.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n There is chaos in the House of Representatives with Republicans fumbling around trying to find a new Speaker of the House and I love it. The neo-cons are battling the establishment Republicans and its becoming a bloodbath. Anytime Republicans are fractured, I&rsquo;m excited. &mdash; Liberal in Texas</p>\n<p> Dear Liberal: &nbsp;<br />\n As the saying goes, you&rsquo;ve got to break a few eggs to make an omelet. Granted some eggs are being thrown in D.C. but the squabbling going on with the GOP in Washington is not representative of what is going on with mainstream Republican voters. In fact GOP voters along with many independents appear to be unified against establishment politicians. Just look at the fact that Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, and Ben Carson are leading in the polls.<br />\n Grassroots Republicans want a leader with a conservative vision, not a manager who knows his way around the &ldquo;good old boys club&rdquo; in Washington. The same fervor that&rsquo;s causing problems for establishment candidates in the GOP primary is also playing out in the &ldquo;People&rsquo;s Chamber.&rdquo; My prediction is that in a couple of weeks the leadership of the House will be settled and it will be stronger than ever in the name of conservatism.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n I thought you might get a kick out of this.&nbsp; I just read an article stating that 1 in 3 vegetarians eat meat when they&rsquo;re drunk. Since most vegetarians tend to be politically liberal, isn&rsquo;t this just another case of liberal hypocrisy? &mdash; Where&rsquo;s the Beef<br />\n Dear Beef:&nbsp; I guess you can call me a hypocrite as well because when I&rsquo;ve been drunk, I&rsquo;ve eaten some vegetables.</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
