China gets the real thing, we get retirees

15 Nov

 Obama visits China and will probably visit India during the last month of his second term.

Has anyone observed that US presidents only seems to tour India when they are at the end of their tenure? In other words when they are being put out to pasture.
They then tour India speaking at CEO/Leadership conferences and making a nice little packet. Obviously they can’t go to China now because either they are not understood there or just because they are not wanted.

Case in point George W Bush and Clinton.

…and we want to be a world power 😦

On a completely unrelated note heres a funny piece from The Onion.
