Hillary Asks China to Buy Our Debt

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an official state visit to China, and while there she made sure to ask the Red Chinese to continue buying our debt.

"By continuing to support American Treasury instruments the Chinese are recognising our interconnection. We are truly going to rise or fall together," Clinton said at the US embassy here.

Truly, she said it all. Now we're officially tying the future of our economy to the world's biggest autocracy. We're also making sure that they know it, too.

Clinton had sought to focus on economic and environmental issues in Beijing, saying Washington's concerns about the human rights situation in China should not be a distraction from those vital matters.

So after eight years of President Bush stating flatly that human rights are forefront in our policy, in one stroke it's reversed. Hillary (and by extension Obama) would rather have us fat and happy than Chinese peasants not get jailed for speaking their mind. The American Left is the first to state that they want to fight for human rights, but they are usually the last to do so.
