LOL! "Canadian Government Sabotaged Barack Obama"

When all else fails...

Blame Canada!

Desperate much, KosObamazoids?

You'll have to read this ridiculous Daily Kos (aka KosObamaMedia, Inc.) diary to understand the implications of accusing the Canadian government of sabotaging Barack Obama's presidential campaign, but the nitty-gritty lies in this cui bono graph:

I believe the evidence clearly shows that the Harper government believed that one, Hillary would win so they didn't want to make her an enemy, and two, they recognized that Hillary is the establishment candidate who most shares their agenda on free trade. Remember, the Canadians knew all along who was really posturing on NAFTA. And it wasn't Obama.

Sure. Uh huh.

So... the Canadian government made Obama admit that he had no idea what his campaign advisers were actually doing?

Barack Obama said Monday that his campaign never gave Canada back-channel assurances that his harsh words about the North American Free Trade Agreement were for political show — despite the disclosure of a Canadian memo indicating otherwise.

According to the memo obtained by The Associated Press, Obama’s senior economic adviser told Canadian officials in Chicago that the debate over free trade in the Democratic presidential primary campaign was “political positioning” and that Obama was not really protectionist.

The adviser, Austan Goolsbee, said his comments to those officials were misinterpreted by the author, Joseph DeMora, who works for the Canadian consulate in Chicago and attended the meeting.

In Carrollton, Texas, Obama told reporters: “Nobody reached out to the Canadians to try to assure them of anything.”

Asked why he had appeared to deny a report last week that such a meeting had taken place, Obama said: “That was the information I had at the time.”

Blaming Canada is a sorry state of affairs, even for Obamatrons.

Get a grip, Kidz.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
