Saturday Night Live isn’t the only unusual source of criticism ot President Obama’s trip to China. Max Boot notes that some Democrats were less than impressed. For example, Liz Economy of the Council on Foreign Relations stated:
It was, optically, one of the worst U.S. presidential visits to Beijing in memory. … Lots of talk, little action — just the way the Chinese like it. Although I’d like to back the president, I’d place my own bet that being nice to the Chinese leadership isn’t going to get us very far. It never has.
