The state dinner for China’s President Hu Jintao was last night, and President Obama’s toast was curious under the circumstances:

Paying homage to his guest, POTUS cited a Chinese proverb that says, “If you want one year of prosperity, then grow grain. If you want 10 years of prosperity, then grow trees. But if you want 100 years of prosperity, then you grow people,” before toasting the growth of Chinese-U.S. relations.

“Grow people”? What an odd choice of proverb when speaking about a country with an abortion record that makes Barbara Boxer’s nipples hard. The Chinese government encourages some 13 million abortions per year — many of them forced. China aborts roughly the population of Pennsylvania every year.

The silly things that are said just to placate those to whom we owe a couple trillion dollars.

    Ironically ( the President FAILS to see the 'irony' of his odd choice! )

    When P' BO speaks of "growing people" trust me, no bootstraps are involved. DREAM Act for 'stellar' students.., free faux healthcare for the un-aborted, Unemployment Benefits ( that last longer than Mrs. Wills' -grudges- ) and Lifetime make-work 'employment'.

    P' BO is actually envious of how China has managed in "growing people" into becoming almost entirely dependent on a Central Government! Btw, the "forced" link is a must read. And I can't imagine many of the doctors and nurses in China feel any 'better' about performing abortions in the 9th month than their captive 'patients' do? ( I went to medical school for 'this'? )
