BEIJING China on Thursday criticized U.S. presidential hopeful Sen Barack Obama for suggesting he would ban Chinese toy imports if elected because of concerns over their safety. Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said the overwhelming majority of Chinese toys are safe and he indicated that any suggestion of an important ban is a complete overreaction.
"Imagine if the quality of American products was not 100% up to standard and they had quality problems, could we take that as a reason to totally ban U.S. products? I think this way of doing things is not objective, it's unreasonable and also unfair," he told reporters. Obama was quoted by Reuters as telling a rally Wednesday in New Hampshire that if elected, "I would stop the import of all toys from China."
Now we know who will get the China vote.
Don’t worry china: We the peeples are already putting the ban on you!
>>”Imagine if the quality of American products was not 100% up to standard and they had quality problems, could we take that as a reason to totally ban U.S. products?<<
Didn’t the Japanese ban beef imports over less issues than we have seen with Chinese toys?
I guess the Commie Chinks are getting worried, they've bought Hillary lock, stock and barrel, and are afraid of not getting their money's worth.
This is the type of thing that gets attention.
Ah..Obamas first foreign policy debacle
Yes. But its a gimmick. Hunter does not care about the toys. He’s worried about hi tech manufacturing technologies.
Besides, Hunter has already introduced a House resolution urging Americans to buy American. He just gets about 1/10000th the attention as Obama. LOL
Don’t forget..China is buying up our banks and mortgages. They just bought 10% of one of our largest banks, Morgan Stanley and they already have a grip on Citimortgage. Those are just the two I know of.
I know. The toys aren’t the problem.
I thought the Dems were going to patch things up with our allies.
The Red Chinese thugarchs have always been in the tank for Her Thighness. Her rotten husband allowed them to acquire technology to MIRV their nukes, and the Witch will sell (or just give) them the rest of our military secrets, hence Charlie Hsu and all the suddenly wealthy NY Chinatown dishwahers. All a covert op by the Red Chinese People’s Army. Another reason to crawl over glass to vote against 4 more years of Ahab and Jezebel.
Chinese manufacturers should be required to inspect anything they export for safety hazards and penalized for shipping tainted goods.
Anybody read where Morgan Stanley took a 40 Billion dollar loan from an “arm” of the Chinese Govt because of having to write off bad mortgage debt today?
