The naive rookie mistakes continue to roll out

Marcie isn't feeling too hot today so I'll take point on the site. And I'd like to address the naivete of Obama that he put on display yesterday:

Everybody's watching what's going on in Beijing right now with the Olympics , Think about the amount of money that China has spent on infrastructure. Their ports, their train systems, their airports are vastly the superior to us now, which means if you are a corporation deciding where to do business you're starting to think, "Beijing looks like a pretty good option."

What a rube. He's too naive to see beyond what China WANTS the world to see. They built everything up for the Olympics just so the world could be impressed. But they couldn't cover up their pitiful infrastructure in the wake the devastating 7.9 magnitude quake that hit China back in May. In that quake over 10,000 school children lost their lives to sub-standard building construction. This is what Marcie wrote at the time:

This is the legacy of Communism. While so many may extol the "virtues" of such a totalitarian system, when disasters like this strike the government's shoddy work is laid bare for all to see. The Chinese government was so excited to be awarded the Olympics that on the day the quake occurred, Chinese news services assured everyone that the Olympic stadium was unharmed before continuing on with the news.

The children have become the victims in this tragedy. Seven thousand schools collapsed. Four thousand children orphaned. Five million people are homeless. The shoddy workmanship is exposed for all of those in China, and around the world, which is the "best" anyone could expect from a Communist regime.

Seven thousand schools gone in the wink of an eye. That's a testament to the Chinese way of building things. No rebar, no reinforcement for buildings in an area of the world prone to earthquakes. John Taylor has a quick rundown on the shoddy workmanship in China. But that doesn't stop Obama from heaping disdain on his country, and praising a totalitarian regime. Thanks, Barry. We sure do appreciate that.

Would we like to see our businesses go abroad, especially to China? Did Obama forget that they are a totalitarian country where censorship runs rampant and where foreign journalists are arrested for covering protests. Let's not forget that the air in China is so bad that our athletes attempted to wear masks. That lasted until the the Chinese threw a hissy fit. Captain Ed notes that China isn't allowing people to download iTunes right now because of a Tibet-themed album that was just released.

And there is this from a Hugh Hewitt listener:

hundreds of millions of chinese live in the countryside WITHOUT REGULAR ACCESS TO UTILITIES, EDUCATION OR CLEAN WATER and modern farming equipment....

about half of the Chinese hover right around malnutrition and no education...

That's the china no one sees. That's the China that is the truth. It's not the glitz, glamour, and bling-bling that they've shown the world in Beijing. That is the legacy of a regime that literally controls it's populace from sun-up to sun-down, 24/7.

We have a superior infrastructure. We can also create business opportunities here in America. When we get these retarded oil-drilling bans lifted we will need a lot of workers to help build the refineries, and drill that oil. In addition to that there's the move to alternative energy, such as nuclear. Someone has to build those plants and maintain them.

But that's not good enough for Obama. He's enticed by the eye candy that the Communist Chinese has put out as propaganda. This guy is an ignorant rube that lacks even the most basic knowledge of a nation that is not our friend.
