Chinese media slams Romney as convention begins
http://thecable.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2012/08/28/chinese_media_slams_romney_as_convention_begins ^

Posted on 08/28/2012 12:07:20 PM PDT by TigerClaws

China's state-controlled media lashed out at GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney Monday, warning that his policies would poison U.S.-China relations.

"By any standard, the U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's China policy, as outlined on his official campaign website, is an outdated manifestation of a Cold War mentality," read a commentary in Monday's China Daily. "It endorses the ‘China threat' theory and focuses on containing China's rise in the Asia-Pacific through bolstering the robust U.S. military presence in the region."

The Chinese state-owned outlet said that Romney was "provoking" China by promising to supply Taiwan with aircraft and other military platforms and called his China approach "pugnacious."

China’s complaining = Romney’s China policy must be good for the US.

If the Red Chinese love Barry Hussein and hate Mitt, I’d have to say that Mitt is my man. This is just more proof that Barry is a communist. The communists hated President Reagan too. The communists in this country still do.

I guess if China hates him, it is a good thing to vote for him over the facist.

“provoking” works for me. A sharp stick in the occasional commie eye is going to keep them honest. I expect they’d respond by cutting their exports to the USA ( insert snicker). Loading Taiwan up with enough horsepower to melt down the entire Chineez coastline is a good way to keep the neighbor in his own yard. The Chicoms use their own CCTV9 to let us know about their unhappiness-—that’s their English channel-—and they talk English a lot when they have a bellyache.

“Chinese want a weak America and are happy with the 16 trillion in debt. “

Precisely. I would make beating China economically one of the top five goals of the US. I would favor trade with nations that most closely share our political and cultural identity, and would work hard to position the US as the world leader in the production of ‘quality’ and ‘safe’ products, including the highest quality pharmaceuticals and medical devices, higher-end clothing, safe and high-quality foods, the safest children's toys, etc. etc.

We can't out-compete the world market on the basis of lower labor costs, unless we decimate our standard of living, but we can out-compete in terms of quality. We should have the economic equivalent to the Apollo program - with the goal that within a decade a specific percentage of American products will be accepted as the highest quality in the world. People will spend more if the quality justifies it.

Maybe I am splitting hairs.
However, do they actually “support” Romney or do they support republicanism/conservativism/the party?
Do they support Romney or do they mostly support defeating obbammie the commie?

Not so. Destroy the unions here and prices go WAY down.

Yes, actually we can. The traditional American solution to high labor costs is increased automation and innovation, something the labor unions will destroy a plant over.

Destroy the unions, deport the illegals, roll back the insane EPA enviro regs, watch automation/innovation grow and the American economy flourish.

The Chinese media criticizing Romney is like the Taliban slamming Tim Tebow. Yes, we get it....You’re Communist, Obama is Communist, you both hate America, a declining America is a vulnerable America. Congratulations on yet another stellar endorsement, Barack!

We already are. Consumers have demonstrated over and over agin that they want cheap - period. Many a fine American small business has tried the "quality" angle and been driven into the ground by its low-priced competitors.

The problem is that appreciation for quality requires certain values, which are no longer being instilled or upheld by American society.

I agree, but they won’t go down to the level of sweatshops in third world countries, or down to the level at which they can compete with those countries that are subsidizing whole industries.

I don’t think the Chinese government is really as naive as to believe Mitt’s campaign web site. They have to be play-acting to sway the American voter.

Normally I'd agree. However, there's a very good chance that the Chinese are primarily interested in having good customers for their exports.

In this case I think the Chinese senior leadership, having seen firsthand where real communism leads, may be considerably less supportive of socialist economic policy than the leadership of the Democratic Party.

So what prompted this?

The realistic answer would be that China likes capitalist economics but considers Romney's military policy to be problematic. More speculative, maybe Huntsman, the former ambassador to China, Utah governor, and fellow Mormon with Mitt Romney, explained to the Chinese that Romney cannot be trusted to hold firmly to his stated positions?

True. There won’t be any sweatshops. The NLRB and EEOC will see to that but prices will still drop drastically in our favor worldwide.

political theatre more for the sake of chinese people than americans. it is great that Romney says that he supports the taiwan relations act. but he said a lot of things. i still don’t remember the last time, ANY president has sell a significant number of advanced 2nd gen. arms to taiwan.

but of course, i haven’t been keeping up with it. seems like it has always be “pledge to sell” and then it ends up being tabled for later discussion.

It's almost enough to maybe start to consider rethinking Romney.

Sort of....

Maybe....

But I really doubt it.

It's just very curious..... If they're that opposed to him over something about him, it would appear that there's something about him that I missed.

Huckabee doesn’t hate Romney, does he? He was speaking at the convention last night. From his speech, he says that although they were once opponents against each other, they are now fellow opponents against another opponent-the “other side”! (only paraphrasing)

Wow. China formally endorses Romney/Ryan. That's pretty cool.

China's state-controlled media lashed out at GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney Monday, warning that his policies would poison U.S.-China relations.
