Video: Obama official speaks 'off the record'

Last month I highlighted another instance of the increasingly popular phenomenon of b-list political appointees and congressional staffers seeking to go "off the record" at public events. In this most recent case, U.S. Trade Representative Tim Reif spoke was to speak on a panel at the Cato Institute about "restoring the pro-trade consensus", and while his fellow panelists' remarks were to be on the record, his, inexplicably, were not.

Well, in case you were unable to attend the undoubtedly thrilling event, Cato has helpfully provided a video recording. Reif's remarks begin around the 43 minute mark.
