    President of China? Obama's lament.

    “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.’”

    “Obama Seeks a Course of Pragmatism in the Middle East,” The New York Times, March 11, 2011.

    Mr. Obama is right.

    This isn't the first time he's been jealous of China. Scary stuff the leader of the free world looks to China and is envious.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    "Mr. Obama is right.

    If you’re president of China, people around the world who are fighting for freedom don’t really expect you to help. If you’re president of China, you don’t have to put up with annoying off-year congressional elections, and then negotiate your budget with a bunch of gun-and-religion-clinging congressmen and senators. If you’re president of China, you can fund your national public radio to your heart’s content. And if you’re president of China, when you host a conference on bullying in schools, people take you seriously.

    Unfortunately for him and us, Barack Obama is president of the United States. That job brings with it certain special responsibilities. It’s a tough job—maybe tougher than being president of China. But Barack Obama ran for president of the United States. Maybe he should start behaving as one."

    He'd have a rude awakening if he ran for President of China.

    I have friends in Asia. They are still laughing at us for electing Obama.

    One of the few times I'm inclined to agree with you.

    I'm surprised that you agree, seeing how you have the picture of communist on your avatar. Interesting, to say the least.

    Let's vote for an actor next time. I prefer a facade that my will is represented.

    That actor was respected and feared, unlike the empty suit in there now.

    Like a dictator?

    Why would you want a leader that is feared?

    Because other countries responded to his leadership. They knew he meant business.
