OBAMA – PRESIDENT OF CHINA…Home by David Vance March 11, 2011 7 1 min 10 yrs Tweet “Mr. Obama has told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China. As one official put it, ‘No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.’” Read more here… Click to rate this post![Total: 0 Average: 0] Obama Post navigation Previous postNext post 7 thoughts on “OBAMA – PRESIDENT OF CHINA…” Obambi reveals his inner totalitarian and aspirant aristocrat. He’s not the only one-Thomas Friedman also shares his totalitarian reveries about ‘imagining what the US could do by being China for a day’. That’s fine I suppose if you ignore the oppression of political opponents, lack of free speech, state controlled media, limited property rights, lack of freedom of movement, manditory one-child policy, oppression of ethnic minorities, lack of legal rights like due process, etc. We should not want to be China, but we should want to be again the country that gets things done. We have become a society whose main product has become legislation and litigation. And there’s no future in that. I’m sure it would be easier for Obama if he could corner all those racist, gun-toting Tea Partiers in Times Square and shoot them – like they did in Tianamen Square. Sadly, for Obama, we have a free press and a vibrant political debate and an educated well-read population that doesn’t want to do unquestionably do what Big Brother Obama would like us to do. And to top it all off, we have elections! So, soon we can get rid of this President – who can’t seem to tell the difference between China and America. I don’t think we by and large have a well read population at all. A lot of people who think that they are well read get all their opinions from radio screamers and from silly blogs. Those who don’t challenge their own prejudices once in a while can’t possibly be seen as politically well read. You can’t stomp all over Obamses if he said that. It seems he didn’t mean it would be great to have Hu Jintao’s powers (he has those and more), but that the scrutiny is all the greater. And it is. For this people can blame themselves. Yes, the fawning media is partly culpable, but they only service a market and the people have decided to treat the president as a superstar. So we get aggro in Egypt – how will the president lead us? We get aggro in Libya – how will the president lead us? An earthquake and tsunami in Japan – what does the president say? Come on, this is bollocks. Be honest, if you’re a normal person you’d last five minutes in the job before telling everyone to grow up and take responsibility for themselves. In terms of literacy, we are not China, Phantom. An opinion different than yours is not necessarily a “prejudice.” “radio screamers” and “silly blogs” — this is your opinion. You sound like Schiller from NPR. Phantom, what silly blog are you referring to….? Comments are closed.
