Rhetoric on China laugh­able

The Washington Times Daily - - Opinion -

In a re­cent speech in the Rose Gar­den, Pres­i­dent Obama warned China about gain­ing a com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage in world trade by “skirt­ing the rules” (“Obama takes on China with high-tech trade com­plaint,” Web, Tues­day). “If China would sim­ply let the mar­ket work on its own, we’d have no ob­jec­tion,” he said.

This cer­tainly makes me won­der why the pres­i­dent would ex­pect an­other coun­try to abide by the rules of true cap­i­tal­is­tic ven­tures when he him­self es­pouses the op­po­site in his own coun­try by pick­ing win­ners and losers, such as Gen­eral Mo­tors, Chrysler, banks and green-en­ergy com­pa­nies.
