Obama's true nature peeks through once again

"Mr. Obama has told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China. As one official put it, 'No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.'"

Heaven forbid someone should actually scrutinize our president's pronouncements. 

Yes, we imagine it would seem better, at least through the eyes of a would-be dictator such as Dear Leader, to be the autocratic ruler of a repressed populace rather than have to "deal" with free people while being hamstrung by such inconvenient restrictions as the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Would that be because they get murdered by their own government if they do scrutinize Hu Jintao's words? (Yep!)

Can we then infer that Obama wishes he could gun us down, rather than callus racists?

In fairness, this was a quote of an administration official, not the big man. Further, the context is clearly that the words of the American president is scrutinized worldwide, while interest in the Chinese president's words is largely confined to his own country.

There are lots of reasons to dislike President Obama, but I don't think this is one.
