I grew up in different times; a time when politicians could escape their past. Pre-YouTube, a pol could flip-flop on issues without irrefutable video evidence of previous positions. “That’s not what I said, exactly,” they used to opine. These days, moderators of televised debates and town halls play videos of candidates’ statements and dare them to refute them. Followed by the usual weasel words. But what lingers: the original statement. Which is just as well. In this case, (Senator?) Hillary Clinton approves of a 25 percent tax on firearms. There are other clips where she “defends” the Second Amendment, “but….” Bottom line: Ms. Clinton has always been in favor of civilian disarmament. And nothing she can say will convince anyone otherwise.
