What China’s Hu Would Really Like to Tell Obama

Time Magazine imagines what a “more relaxed” President Hu Jintao might say to President Obama when they meet on the sidelines of the upcoming U.N. General Assembly:

“One of my aides handed me something before our meeting. It’s a quote from one of the more popular online chat rooms in China, and I’m told it reflects pretty accurately the prevailing sentiment in my country in the wake of your decision to discriminate against tires made there. (U.S. companies, by the way, produce two-thirds of those tires. We all had a good chuckle about that in the Politburo. Here I am, the head of the Communist Party in the People’s Republic of China, and I’m apparently more of a capitalist than you!)”
