Then & Now: Obama once used Walmart ties as negative
Posted by Staff
Buzzfeed reports:

President Barack Obama nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell, a one-time Clinton deputy-OMB director and current president of Walmart's charitable arm the Walmart Foundation, to be his next budget chief Monday.

But it was not long ago Obama was using ties to Walmart as a wedge issue attacking Hillary Clinton's service on the board of directors of the world's largest retailer.

"While I was working on those streets watching those folks see their jobs shift overseas, you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board at Walmart," then-Senator Obama said to Hillary Clinton in a 2008 debate.

Bill Clinton defended his wife's service at Walmart saying it was "it was the right thing for her to do."
