Yeah I know he’s not elected yet but that kind of is part of my point.
The China Daily,the PRC paper of record in english has an editorial bemoaning Mitt Romneys position on their country. Too f@#$ing bad!
Lets just break it down a bit. Here are the facts:
China IS an international belligerent. Not to the degree seen throughout US history but the panda is no angel. Its aid and commercial development projects are very much double edged swords and their well documented positions on bogus disputes with the smaller nation neighbors it is bullying are the seeds of very real conflict coming soon to a theater near you,well neareer to them but your kids or even yourself may end up going to fight in it.
China is absolutely,positively,overtly and totally a currency manipulator. Hell they’re economy manipulators! Eggheads the world over act like speaking this truth is a very big taboo. Poor lil’ Timmy Geitner uttered it once and took a spanking from daddy & co. Mitt isn’t going to get too crazy,yes there is some political rhetoric in his speeches,but he isn’t going to roll like an egg roll either.
Romney’s military position internationally is totally in line with the Obama Pacific Pivot. Let’s be clear though. The Pivot doesn’t belong to Obama anymore than it will Romney. State and Defense humps have raised up in proper proportions to finally exert the correct standing for the United States of America for the next 50 years. Obama will get some credit as will Romney but seriously,this is simply one of those things the leviathan finally got right and around to.
24 hours later the PRC and others alter their position to that as Romney being forced to use heavy handed rhetoric. Well here’s the thing panda. You are an aggressive,expanding and intentional entity. You are no different from many a nation on this planet. Your course runs counter to the best interests of the United States in many ways and places. You are when friendly still not really a good friend. You are the siren to our own greedy desires and this too needs to be addressed both in Main Street USA as well as up in yo face.
China. Dragon,tiger or panda? Doesn’t freaking matter. You are at best a counter to the interests and actions of the USA,and the USA will be one to yours. This doesn’t have to get ugly and everyone involved can come out feeling good and smiling,like dinner at a Chinese restaurant . So even if we’re hungry an hour later we can at least be honest about it all.
