Bow Early, Bow Often...Our President

The Associated Press is reporting that the United States and China have not reached a major breakthrough Friday after only their second round of talks about human rights since 2002. President Obama is pushing China to treat its citizens better.  However, they can’t push too hard because they need Chinese support on Iranian and North Korean nuclear standoffs, climate change and other initiatives the administration can’t carry out on its own.

So, ask yourself what our President is willing to do to smooth relations between China and the United States and your most likely answer is….roll over and give them what they want.  Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner has been holding these talks with China, further eroding any confidence I have that the United States will come out with our dignity intact.

What’s disturbing is that Posner has decided to use the Arizona immigration law as a pawn to appease the Chinese.  Below is a transcript of questions between and AP reporter and Posner.  It’s embarrassing to see his responses. Take a look:

QUESTION: Was there any areas in which China sort of turned the tables and raised its own complaints or concerns about U.S. practices around the globe or at home?

ASSISTANT SECRETARY POSNER: Sure. You know, I think — again, this goes back to Ambassador Huntsman’s comment. Part of a mature relationship is that you have an open discussion where you not only raise the other guy’s problems, but you raise your own, and you have a discussion about it. We did plenty of that. We had experts from the U.S. side, for example, yesterday, talking about treatment of Muslim Americans in an immigration context. We had a discussion of racial discrimination. We had a back-and-forth about how each of our societies are dealing with those sorts of questions. . . .

QUESTION: Did the recently passed Arizona immigration law come up? And, if so, did they bring it up or did you bring it up?
ASSISTANT SECRETARY POSNER: We brought it up early and often. It was mentioned in the first session, and as a troubling trend in our society and an indication that we have to deal with issues of discrimination or potential discrimination, and that these are issues very much being debated in our own society.

Posner and his team brought it up, “often and early”.  So, while the state of Arizona continues to have problems with rapes, kidnappings, drug smuggling, and all other assorted crimes committed by illegal Mexican immigrants, the very same President who refuses to secure our borders and stop the problem has now sent his diplomat to China to apologize for a law that hopes to prevent these crimes?
I am angry, but I shouldn’t be surprised. This President is the same one who bows to world leaders, including China. This is the same President that shows more respect for other world dignitaries than he does for our men and women in uniform. This is the same president that continues to look more and more like Jimmy Carter every day.
God help us all.
