Obamamamama: Ignorant, Too

Evidently Obama has absolutely NO knowledge of the Middle Kingdom.

Everybody's watching what's going on in Beijing right now with the Olympics , Think about the amount of money that China has spent on infrastructure. Their ports, their train systems, their airports are vastly the superior to us now, which means if you are a coporation deciding where to do business you're starting to think, "Beijing looks like a pretty good option."

There is no industry in Beijing, period. All industry is in other cities, near the coast, because only a few miles of actual roadway exist, all leading to ports.

Air transportation in PRChina is a nightmare. There are zero small-plane FBO's (to speak of) and zero small-plane mechanics (to speak of.) Result: virtually zero private-plane transportation from point to point.

Once outside of Beijing and the manufacturing cities, there is virtually zero infrastructure for water, sewer, natural gas, and electricity.

And there IS the minor matter of horrific pollution--air and water.

But hey! It makes "good speech," no?
