Democratic Sen. Barack Obama questioned rival Hillary Rodham Clinton's opposition to free trade agreements that many critics contend has cost U.S. jobs.

The presidential candidate addressed the Association of American Manufacturers Monday. Obama said, "Around election time, the candidates can't do enough for you. They'll promise you anything, give you a long list of proposals and even come around, with TV crews in tow, to throw back a shot and a beer."

Clinton did just that at a stop Saturday at Bronko's restaurant in Crown Point, Ind., on Saturday.

Obama chided Clinton about NAFTA and the Colombian trade deal. Despite her opposition, he noted that the North American Free Trade Agreement was passed under her husband's watch.
