The GOP Fears China, Too
Today, former Massachusettes Gov. Mitt Romney said that he thinks China's rise presents a threat to the world. According to The Hill's Blog, Romney's exact words were, "I think they [China] are a great threat to the stability of the world long-term."
He delivered these remarks on the conservative talk radio Laura Ingraham's show just a day after Indiana Gov. and possible presidential candidate hopeful Mitch Daniels said, "we have got to fix our own problems. The Chinese are not our biggest problem, at least not at present."
The Hill's Blog also reports:
Romney said that he would have rethought China's admission to the World Trade Organization, which had enjoyed bipartisan support at the time. Romney said he would have preferred stronger agreements on currency and intellectual property rights before allowing China membership in the WTO.
Romney's comments further prove that holding China accountable for unfair trade practices is most definitely a bipartisan battle.
