Hillary’s ‘Charm’ Doesn’t Impress China

From a fawning Associated Press:

Clinton turns on charm in China

By MATTHEW LEE, 05.25.10

BEIJING — Hillary Rodham Clinton tolerates but doesn’t share her husband’s appetite for violent action movies. Her daughter’s upcoming wedding is "the most important" thing in her life. And she thinks Timothy Geithner has great hair.

The U.S. Secretary of State turned on the charm in Beijing Tuesday, taking a break from intense strategic and economic talks with Chinese leaders in order to spend some time promoting people-to-people exchanges between America and China

Now behold the results of Mrs. Clinton’s charm offensive, also from the Associated Press:

China Cool To US Calls For Action Against NKorea

China Noncommittal On US Calls For Support Of Action Against NKorea Over SKorean Ship Sinking

May 25, 2010

BEIJING (AP) – China responded coolly Tuesday to U.S. calls for it to support international action against North Korea over the sinking of a South Korean warship, as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called stability on the Korean peninsula a "shared responsibility" of Beijing and Washington.

Wrapping up two days of intense strategic and economic talks in Beijing, Clinton appealed to China for its backing by noting that "no one is more concerned about peace and stability in this region than the Chinese." She also said that after "very productive and detailed" conversations, she believed the Chinese "understand the gravity of this situation."

"We know this is a shared responsibility and in the days ahead we will work with the international community and our Chinese colleagues to fashion an effective, appropriate response," Clinton said at a signing ceremony for several unrelated agreements reached during the course of the broader talks.

But her Chinese counterpart in the discussions, State Counselor Dai Bingguo, barely mentioned the matter in his remarks at the ceremony. China, North Korea’s main ally, has remained neutral, and Dai merely repeated his government’s standard line on the matter.

"The two sides believe that ensuring peace and stability in Northeast Asia and the Korean Peninsula is critical," he said. "Under current circumstances, relevant parties should calmly and appropriately handle the issue and avoid escalation of the situation." He did not elaborate…

At a news conference later with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, her U.S. co-chair in the overall dialogue, Clinton made clear that the U.S. expects China’s cooperation. But she could not say if any progress had been made in persuading the Chinese to back action against the North.

"We expect to be working together with China in responding to North Korea’s provocative action and promoting stability in the region," Clinton told reporters at the news conference, which was not attended by Chinese officials.

"I think it is absolutely clear that China not only values but is very committed to regional stability and it shares with us the goal of a denuclearized Korean peninsula and a period of careful consideration in order to determine the best way forward in dealing with North Korea," she said

Isn’t it somewhat dangerous to have such a delusional Secretary Of State?

No matter how ‘charming’ she may be.

    The woman who couldn’t persuade her husband of the last 40 years to stop raping women believes she is going to influence the chicoms? With her charm? What charm?

    Well, at least you have to give least these idiot libwits credit for consistently believing their own fantasies.

    Ironically, this twit thinks she’s making profound statements. Talk about useful idiots! Obama uses her to further his agenda, yet she is the focus of the opposition’s ire. Obama is continually putting her in a box,a nd she’s acting the willing dupe.

    She should divorce BJ and marry Obama. They’re a perfect match!

    I’d like to see some video’s to see if it was something in China’s tea, cause they sure scrubbed Obama falling down drunk on that bow visit.
    Soliciting for wedding presents?

    I think the wedding presents should be audited since Hillary is most definitely doing the invitation part.

    I don’t mean to be sexist or discriminatory, but if the Secretary of the U.S. was a man instead of a woman, would he have done as Hillary, and personally shopped and paid for foreign expensive crystal like Hillary did.
    I don’t think it’s in the job description.

    • canary says:

      I was referring to when Hillary bought the made the European crystal glasses for U.S. Government meetings. Wouldn’t the Secretary of the State have staff to do the shopping and purchasing of crystal for the U.S. Government meetings? Maybe a job for the 1st Lady’s staff?

    Another liberal with ZERO experience in anything—perfect for this administration.

    It’s the John Kerry way, negotiate, pout to the U.N., offer sanctions that do nothing, clench fists-scrunch face-hold breath, until someone calms him down, repeat.

    I have a distinct feeling that China and NoKor would be shaking in their jackboots if Reagan was president at this point in time.
