Obama's visit to China abject failure
Obama's visit to China was an unmitigated disaster, an abject failure. Environment: the US will share the blame for failure to act in Copenhagen. Human rights: not mentioned, and Obama meekly allowed himself to be censored. Economy: China will not change its anti-expansionary policies, and the Chinese dictators made snide remarks blaming the US for the recession. International relations: the Maoists will continue to play their unhelpful games, and a poorly worded press release managed to annoy India - improving relations with the largest democracy had been one of Bush's few positive accomplishments.
