That Hillary Clinton is a world class flip-flopper is nothing new. There’s a long list of them here. But this reversal was impressive even for her.
Watch as the leading democrat dissembles. Watch as she goes full circle. Watch the sheer hypocrisy.The remarkable part is how abruptly the flop flop occurred. In March Clinton was going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.

The democrat primary in West Virginia takes place on May 10 and Clinton now seeks the votes of those who she would put out of business. She sent her husband to West Virginia to campaign for her.

So today she says she wants to see coal “continued to be sold and continued to be mined” even while she’s killing coal jobs in West Virginia.
This was as boldly hypocritical as anything I’ve seen in quite a long time. But then, she is a democrat.
And a Clinton.
This morning on CBS News she called the above comments a “misstatement.” Let’s see how stupid voters really are.
