President of China?
Weekly Standard.com ^ | March 11,2011 | WILLIAM KRISTOL

Posted on 03/11/2011 6:18:35 AM PST by Hojczyk

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.

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 acting as one.

Obama would rather be the President of an enslaved people.

It would be a lot easier for me too if he were president of China.

Same goes for North Korea, Cuba, the (former) Soviet Union and every other communist totalitarian regime Obama and his ilk have supported throughout the decades.

What an unbelievably stupid thing for a president of the United States to say.

The sentiments of a narcissistic whiner.

Gee...I thought words were zero's specialty - in fact his only specialty. Now he's whining about it....times must be a little bit tough for the partier in chief...

This TOTUS thinks he is running for 7th grade class dictator. No matter where he was born, or what lies they tell us about his education, he is no American and no friend of America.

I hereby form the “Obama for President of China committee”.
Unions, Liberals, and Green organizations, we can make a difference by putting Obama in charge of the most populous country in the world. Talk about community’s waiting to be organized. And if anybody needs greening it’s China. And the Union dues waiting to be collected. Please send cash to “Barack for the Billions, President of China for Life”

Lou: Hey Abbott, who is the President of China?

Bud: Yes.

Lou: Yes, what?

Bud: Not what, Hu.

Lou: Who?

Bud: Yes.

Lou: All I wanna know is, who is the President of China?

Bud: Now you’ve got it!

Lou: Got what?

Bud: That Hu is the President.

Lou: That’s what I’m trying to find out! Listen, when the President of China gets paid, who gets the check?

Bud: That’s right. Sometimes his wife gets it.

Lou: Who’s wife?

Bud: Yes...........

Another disturbing glimpse into the ‘bummer's mind set.

Instead of being proud to be pres. of a free people - who can speak their minds - he longs to be a dictator...

but this isn't news to us

At the same time, this is a condescending remark to make against the Chinese leader...not very diplomatic.

Works for me. Can we take up a collection to make this happen?

This pronouncement comes as no surprise to many of us who studied his "known" history when he was campaigning. What upset so many of us is the fact that so much of his history is hidden and the 4th Estate could care less about finding out - just elect him so we can wash our slavery sins away forever.

Our politicians are corrupt for installing him in office when many in the country were calling for validation of his NBC status - there were many steps along the way when his coronation could have been halted...............the RAT party believes China is the country to emulate, they love the dictatorship mode of governance. Power envy: Harry Reid implies China 'dictator' Hu trumps president's clout
