A passing of the torch?

Greetings blog buddies! As you know today marks the opening day of the Olympics. Our chimp look-alike Commander-in-Thief started things off real swell by knocking China's Human Rights record. If it wasn't for the fact that the Bush regime totally ignores human rights I wouldn't have had a problem with W's speech. But propaganda is all he knows. His timing on the world scene has been consistently horrid. He knows just what to say to tick off the rest of the world.
I find it ironic that Bush is trying to take the high road when in fact all he travels are the low roads!
The Chinese are going all out to impress the world with their architectual wonders, i.e., The Bird's Nest and The Ice Cube.
What's really going on is a passing of the torch. But not the Olympic torch. America and the rest of the world are being shown that China's military and economic power deserves to carry the torch of the world leader.
America has been building up to this economic change of the guard for year's by importing everything China makes. Forget about the quality of the stuff they turn out. It's cheap and the masses can usually afford it.
So when they light that big Olympic cauldron in The Bird's nest the symbolic ceremony will be hailing the world's competition in sports and China's economic power in the world.

TODAY'S THREAD:

Are you going to watch the Olympics or have they become too political?
