Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton warned today it was time to "blow the whistle" on China, accusing it of unfair trade practices.
She stood close to a parade of closed shops and pawnbrokers in North Carolina as she vowed to turn the US economy around, despite fears of recession, and promised action to reverse a tide of industrial jobs moving abroad.
"We do have to get tough on China, it is long past time for us to blow the whistle," the New York senator said, in the latest of a string of campaign assaults on Beijing.
"This country manipulates its currency to our disadvantage, they engage in broad-based intellectual property theft, industrial espionage, they do not follow the rules they agreed to follow when they joined the WTO," she said.
"What do we get in return from them? Well, we get tainted pet food, we get lead-laced toys, we get polluted pharmaceuticals."
"If you want to be our partner, you've got to play by the same rules," Clinton said, three days before North Carolina's crucial primary, one of the key end-game votes in the Democratic nominating contest.
The American Manufacturing Trade Action Coalition says North Carolina, in the eastern United States, has lost 211,000 manufacturing jobs since 2001.

I can picture Pee Wee Herman rolling around on the ground laughing after Francis offered to buy his bike...

Looks like the Chicoms have stopped contributing. They know a sinking ship when they see one. They’re probably now busy trying to open a back door channel to McCain.
Senator Clinton (D-NY) denounced President Bush for not stopping the Chinese government from buying an Indiana company and moving the jobs to China. Reminded that the transaction actually took place during her husbands administration, Senator Clinton drew a distinction by pointing out that Bush got nothing from the Chinese in exchange for not stopping it, while Bill got generous campaign help against Bob Dole for initiating it. I will drive similar hard bargains when Im president.
Someone post the picture of slick blowing whistle to start the Easter Egg hunt.
