    Here is the quote:

    Who said it?
    George Bush? No
    Karl Rove? No
    Anyone from the Bush Administration? No

    Answer: Hillary Clinton.
    (on her current trip in Asia)

    So, where does the President stand on this? One would imagine Clinton gets her marching orders from the President. Can someone here tell me why human rights are not important in China right now if they are still important in other places (like GITMO, Iraq, Afghanistan)?

    Human rights didn't stop Clinton from pushing for most-favored nation status. This isn't surprising.

    I know, I never minded Clinton on foreign relations so much, I just think it is ironic that the admin seems to be picking and choosing when human rights matter. Seems similar to all other admins, I fail to see the change.

    Especially when Obama "rejects as false" the notion that we have to sacrifice our ideals for our security.

    The only change involved with Obama, is the cash in his pockets from the political supporters he just paid off with his stealfromus stimulus.


    PLC1 came up with 'stealfromus'. I like it. I'm keeping it.

    .....And, let's not look-into what the actual-agreements might be (with China's bureaucrats).....as-opposed-to statements designed for public-consumption!!!

    Gee....I thought you were such a student of politics.

    Yeah, he only defeated the Soviet Union, the worlds only opposing super power at the time. Only a twisted nut case can bring down an entire empire.

    What you just said was, the Clintons use double talk. The say one thing to one group of people, and another thing to another. I'm glad you finely caught on to something we've know for more 18 years now.

    What agreement have we ever made with China that makes human rights a priority? Any agreement Clinton would make is going to be the same as always.

    It is complete double talk for Obama to go around "championing" human rights when they are simply picking and choosing when they actually matter. I do not really have a problem with this, but everyone seems to attack others when they do it. Face it, Obama in this regard is more of them same.
