A Not So Subtle Message to Mr. Obama?


Last week was not a good week for Mr. Obama and his party in the trouncing they received in the election last Tuesday.  He is off in  China for the annual meeting of APEC or Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum meeting in Beijing.   Here are the leaders of China, Russia,and  the Sultan of Brunei.  But where is Mr. Obama?  He is at the meeting. . . . .

Oh there he is over  in the “wives club”.  Mr. Putin is to the right of the Chinese host leader in the guest of honor place.  Maybe the Chinese were insulted when Mr. Obama refused to ride in the limousine that was sent to carry him around Beijing.  He was the only visiting leader who made that decision.  There was also some talk this morning that the Chinese leader was slighted when Mr. Obama arrived at a meeting chewing gum.  It seems that Mr. Obama is chewing Nicorette to help in his nicotine addiction.   I am sure he is only trying to do this to help all the other people on Obama care not have to pay for his health problems and not trying to be rude at all.  What do you think?

Do you think the Chinese leader is trying to send a message to Mr. Obama?
