we got meaningless agreements on clean energy and student exchanges.  yes, that is the full list of what the president accomplished.  and we got lectured on our national debt and for placing tariffs on tires.  and as the chinese were lecturing us, they were also detaining large numbers of people not for protesting, but because the chinese government thought they may protest.

meanwhile, a nuclear north korea is still running amok with no hope of putting it back in it's cage.

Obama wins no concessions from China on points at issue

 BEIJING — President Barack Obama on Wednesday wraps up a three-day visit to China that’s left him keenly aware of the limits of his administration’s leverage over this economic powerhouse on issues from currency values to human rights.

Obama holds weaker influence with China than his predecessors did, in part because of U.S. dependence on the Chinese to finance American government debt, and because of a perception in China that the U.S. is troubled and China is ascendant.

Administration officials said that the China stop, part of a four-nation Asia tour that will conclude Thursday in South Korea, was a success because it laid the groundwork for a more focused U.S.-China alliance to tackle everything from global warming to nuclear weapons containment.

No worries about political fallout from the masses though, this WILL be spun into being a GOOD thing!

I can still hardly believe that we got lectured on free market economics by the leaders of the people's republic of china.  that's just so . . . degrading.
