    More easing of World tensions by Bush. It's clear he is pulling the rug out under McCain's major campaign hope. ...on the road to detente with North Korea, talks expected with Iran after European talks work out the nuclear issue, peace in Iraq, cell phones in Cuba.
    If he liked McCain, he would be manufacturing some crisis and terror for his buddy.
    (((To put things in persective,,, imagine you had ONLY two choices for president, – Bush? or McCain? who would you choose?...
    things that mame you go hmmmm.... somebody should do a poll)))

    Bush can take Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, John McCain and a few unnamed others with him and never return. But I don't want bad relations with China making them think we just want to dump our garbage in their country they might call all their duckies in which we can't pay.

    By President Bush going to China, it means he doesn't care granting legitamacy to China's Government which has been documented giving weapons to the people perpetuating the GENOCIDE in darfur. You know the genocide that's been going on the last few years that even President Bush himself called a genocide? Not to mention Tibet, and their humans rights violations against their own people. But I can't say I came blame lame-duck Bush for going, it takes one to know one. He has presided over countless human rights violoations such as Guantamano Bay tortures, and the war in Iraq to name a few. Human suffering doesn't seem to factor in either China's or our own country's decisions.
    I'm also surprised there aren't more comments on this, but it is in a very small and hidden place on the ticker.
    I am also sure CNN won't publish this, I have to dumb down my comments lest you dare allow intellegent discourse on your prized ticker.
