The Bestest Smartest Administration Evah

As part of his busy schedule of golfing every weekend and saving or creating 5 billion jobs in the first 200 days in office our Glorious Leader™ has hit upon a brilliant strategerical way to save or create 7,000 union jobs (not that His Policies can be influenced by such shallow means as vote-buying): start a trade war with the one country we desperately need to keep buying our debt

A full-blown trade row erupted between the US and China after Beijing accused Washington of “rampant protectionism” for imposing heavy duties on imported Chinese tyres and threatened action against imports of US poultry and vehicles.

Trade relations between two of the world’s biggest economies deteriorated after Barack Obama, US president, signed an order late on Friday to impose a new duty of 35 per cent on Chinese tyre imports on top of an existing 4 per cent tariff.

In his first big test on world trade since taking office in January, Mr Obama sided with America’s trade unions, which have complained that a “surge” in imports of Chinese-made tyres had caused 7,000 job losses among US factory workers.

Anyone know how to say “Smoot-Hawley” in Mandarin?

    Yeah, I can see that Obama has foreign diplomacy down cold.

    And by “cold”, I mean “room temperature”.

    I see the administration is also hitting the “Overcharge” button in Mandarin.
