President Bush, together with Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson is aggressively peddling a much more benign image of China, though he, too, has concerns. "There's no question China is on a lot of Americans' minds," Bush conceded in a question and answer session with reporters Wednesday.
Rather than an adversary, Bush sees China as a vast prospective market for American farmers and manufacturers, a country with a "significant and growing middle class" that needs to be nurtured...
This is why bloggers stop blogging. The stupidity is unstoppable.
Rather than an adversary, Bush sees China as a country that needs to be nurtured? Then can you please explain this?
Before the election, George Bush's advisers suggested that the next administration would develop a new approach towards China. And they were right.
President Bush publicly marked the shift very clearly by disposing of Bill Clinton's description of China being a "strategic partner" and replacing it with "strategic competitor".
Can you please explain why President Stupidhead spent the first eight months of his Preznancy picking a fight with China? Only to lose a spy plane and a bunch of top secret intelligence equipment, and embarrassingly back down again and again and again?
If it weren't for September 11th, the Worst President Evah might have gotten us into a shooting war with China. How do we know this? Because the Crazy People running our gubment helpfully told us this.
Early in 2001, the [Hart-Rudman]commission presented a report to the incoming G.W. Bush administration warning that terrorism would be the nation's greatest national security problem, and saying that unless the United States took proper protective measures a terrorist attack was likely within its borders. Neither the president nor the vice president nor any other senior official from the new administration took time to meet with the commission members or hear about their findings…
At the first meeting, one Republican woman on the commission said that the overwhelming threat was from China. Sooner or later the U.S. would end up in a military showdown with the Chinese Communists. There was no avoiding it, and we would only make ourselves weaker by waiting. No one else spoke up in support.
The same thing happened at the second meeting -- discussion from other commissioners about terrorism, nuclear proliferation, anarchy of failed states, etc, and then this one woman warning about the looming Chinese menace. And the third meeting too. Perhaps more.
Finally, in frustration, this woman left the commission.
"Her name was Lynne Cheney," Hart said. "I am convinced that if it had not been for 9/11, we would be in a military showdown with China today." Not because of what China was doing, threatening, or intending, he made clear, but because of the assumptions the Administration brought with it when taking office.
Lee Hamilton, who had also been on the commission, was sitting at the same lunch table and backed up Hart's story.
But, as absolutely jaw dropping, appallingly silly and stupid as President Failure Monger's words about China are, they're probably true. But why are they true? Why on Earth would the Disaster Monkey feel that our relationship with China--who his idiotic administration wanted a showdown with--is one that we should nurture?
On the same day as a Chinese government researcher, in the state-run China Daily, raised the prospect of China selling off U.S. dollars if the yuan appreciates dramatically, Bush dismissed alarms about the potential political and economic power China could wield over the U.S. because it holds so much of America's debt.
Oh, that's right! Because Bush and his entire Insane Clown Posse of "fiscally conservative" Republicans mortgaged America's future with China as the bank. Bush took a $230 billion surplus, turned it into record setting deficits, financed his disasterous joke of Presidency with money borrowed from China, and, now, the best he can say is that our new Chinese Board of Directors would never bankrupt the United States because they own too much stock in the enterprise.
It's true. But it's pathetic. And it is and was entirely unnecessary. If Bush hadn't done a goddam thing in his whole horrid eight years, we'd be four years from paying off our entire national debt.
Instead, we're deep in debt, we answer to the Chinese, and--this is the best part!--all those American dollar interest payments go to building a bigger and stronger Chinese economy and military.
And this sorry state of affairs was brought to us all by the Gee Oh Pee--the party of the New American Century. The one they single handedly wrecked for Americans.
While the traitors and the appeasors in the decadent liberal enclaves became so shrilly unhinged and deranged that they actually said this would happen long before it actually happened.
But President Idiot Mouth has got it under control. He's got the solution:
Bush continues to resist congressional calls to penalize China for policies that contribute to a U.S. trade imbalance, saying "the best way to deal with trade deficits is to increase exports, which we're doing."
The U.S. trade deficit climbed to a record high for the fifth straight year, with 2006 imports exceeding exports by $764 billion, the Commerce Department reported yesterday. The gap reflects higher oil prices, which increased the nation's import bill, and American consumers' rising appetite for foreign-made goods.
You can't be uncivil when you talk about this bafoon. Never in the history of the world has such a collosal fuck-up been allowed to so collosally fuck up things that were nearly impossible to fuck up.
Worst President Ever. Worst American Ever. Stupidest Person Ever. Most Unrelenting, Incompetent, In Over His Fat Head Stumbling Bumbling Know Nothing Disaster Magnet Of All Time.
Get him out! Now. Fuck this sixteen months of lame duckery.
Impeach this moron now, while we still have something worth removing him from.
