This story is suspect, but – as Talking Points Memo says – could resurface later. A Canadian news report claims someone from inside the Obama campaign called the Canadian Ambassador to reassure him that tough talk on NAFTA was just “campaign rhetoric.”

I certainly hope this didn’t happen and wouldn’t jump to conclusions. Those crazy Canadians! Wearing pins of their flag on their backpacks all over Europe so no one thinks they’re Americans!
ABC News reports: “The Canadian Embassy issued a statement Thursday stating that ‘at no time has any member of a Presidential campaign called the Canadian Ambassador or any official at the Embassy to discuss NAFTA’ and stated the CTV story is ‘untrue. Neither before nor since the Ohio debate has any presidential campaign called Ambassador Wilson or the Embassy to raise NAFTA.'”
