Czech Take on Hu Visit

The Czech Press put these pictures on the front page of today's largest circulating paper, "Mlada Fronta Dnes". The headline reads, "Americans Make Fools of Themselves in Front of the Chinese President."

Be sure to click on the main photo and then click on the photo that pops up to make it full size. You can see the expression on both President's faces.

If you look at Hu's expression, it is absolutely priceless. And Bush looks like he isn't even noticing the knives coming out of Hu's eyes. I don't know much about Chinese culture, but I'm guessing it might be considered rude to tug on the President's jacket.

The article criticizes Bush for this obvious faux pas, and the security that allowed Wenyi Wang to disrupt Hu's speach.

I'm going to guess that this is the last time we see Mr. Hu in Washington until sometime in 2009.

  • GOOD!!! I hope he doesn't come back at all. That is, unless he actually cleans up his country and decides to treat his people like citizens instead of scum...

  • And Bush actually said he'd have that reporter arrested and charged. What country is this again?

  • I heard they are going to throw the book at her.

    Something like "malicious harrassment of a head of state" or some such non-sense.

    He's probably doing it to save face with Hu. How sad is that?
