Obama Discusses Escalation Of Chinese Trade War: Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture


Earlier, we noted that Obama is about to take the trade war with China on car duties to a whole new level, be decrying "unfair" Chinese trade duties (which in turn were implemented only in response to US tire tariffs imposed in 2009 but you won 't hear about that). Now watch the president live from Ohio, telling his unionized voters precisely what they want to hear.

I did my patriotic American duty and supported the Irish beer making guild as well as the Canadian whiskey industry  . A little hair of the dog never hurts though.

"Change" = 1 shot

"Hope" = 2 shots

"Right Now" = 3 shots

"Fair" = 4 shots

"Joe Biden" = just finish the bottle

Trade Wars - Underway

Currency Wars - On the way (already started in some cases)

World War - Surely not.  This time is different... right?

I distinctly remember this same trade talk four years ago and nothing ever came from it except it got the current president elected. Will it work again this time? I'm betting it will and that is all you should expect. Obama gets re-elected and you have the status quo. China will still mfg nearly everything and we will still not attempt to bring jobs back to this country.

Wow he has brought lying to an all-time high level.

Does he not realize that he has a record that can easily be verified?

He is acting as if he is the unknown that he was 4 years ago. Fool me once .. yada yada.

O'Cuntus is once again, blaming someone else. Why ANYONE would support this fraud of a human being is beyond me.

WAIT! There are plenty of idiotic imbeciles out there that are completely devoid of logic, reason, and independent thought; THOSE are the chumps who support O'Cuntbag.

What no one seems to recognize is that China Inc. has become the richest company on Earth by selling cheap, we, by nature and culture, want to fight to keep our "privilidges" even when the battle for privilidge will deprive us of food for our tables, there is some error of logic here, some cultural inculcation driving us, like Lemmings to the sea, to our own destruction.

The only way to "Win" is to learn to make things cheaper and better than they do, it is a Capitalist World and money flows to the best bargains!

Three years ago I saw, on TV, the Chinese Premier Ho Bin Tao exhorting a group of manufactuers to ever strive to the twin goals "better and cheaper". It is late in the game but the game is; Better and cheaper" if we cannot start we must accept defeat, it will be total defeat, those with privilidge now will also lose it!

AR-PHARAZON, I did not say Chinese products are "Better" although some things are very good indeed, I said they are working to improve quality AND reduce price at the same time, the twin mandates, raise quality, lower cost! This is the new World of competition.
