The Obama administration is prepared to bring a case against the Chinese government at the World Trade Organization, an official confirms.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer has the details:
While President Barack Obama travels to Columbus and Cincinnati Monday for campaign appearances, his administration also will ask the World Trade Organization, or WTO, to step up a review of what the White House says are unfair duties that China levies on American-made cars. The case is technically separate from the auto parts case but the administration says it presents another example of China's trade-policy abuse.

What a dirt bag. He says this with a straight face as he borrows money from China for QE3.
Where has this tough guy been for four years? Bowing to all the short people in the world and complaining about the U.S. Now we are supposed to stand back and marvel at his toughness.
Romney ran ads about Chinese plundering our markets weeks ago, so again BO is just a copy cat.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ... I wonder if Obama is doing this because an election is coming up ...?
While I realize there are a lot of auto workers in Ohio, this amounts to what? 0.0016% of the U.S. trade deficit with China?
It would be more effective for me to claim that I was going to balance my household budget by cutting my twice weekly trips to Starbucks to once a week . . . but only after the neighborhood home owner's association gave me a favorable ruling.
Doesn’t Obama realize this is the worst possible time for the U.S. to lodge complaints against China?
Chinese protesters have been in full riot mode for the past week and could easily switch their violent animosity away from Japan, which is simply threatening to take over a few islands, to the U.S., which is now threatening to hurt China’s already faltering economy with trade sanctions.
Also, the Chinese leadership has enough problems at the moment trying to maintain its economy and restore domestic tranquility its cities without having to deal with the asinine president of a country it’s been propping up financially for years. This could be the final straw for the Chinese Politboro. How do you say, ‘’That’s it! Sell all our U.S. Treasury bills immediately!’’ in Chinese?
Maybe that is why he is doing it?
I can’t believe my birthplace is gonna let him play Charlie Brown and the Football with them on free trade again. Unbelievable!

AFTER Romney beat him up on his lack of ruling.
Here is a pic (p40 of 62) of the stage with the flags:
I tried to go through those photos to see what was going on with the flag....sorry I can only take so much of him. Of course it would not surprise me if he disses the flag as well.
Agreed. He is a complete idiot.
