    “I have been doing business in China for decades, and I will tell you that yeah, the Chinese can take a test, but what they can’t do is innovate,” she said. “They are not terribly imaginative. They’re not entrepreneurial, they don’t innovate, that is why they are stealing our intellectual property.”

    Obviously she is going after the Asian-American vote Republican style.

    Vitalogy, are you saying she is wrong?

    Anytime you make a blanket statement about a group of people, you are wrong.

    Just like it’s wrong to say all old white guys are racists.

    I’d say she’s wrong, as Amus pointed out.

    Plus, it makes her sound kind of mean.

    But at least she isn’t hiding behind a screen of lies.

    I realize it’s a liberal thingy to pretend that certain characteristics don’t exist in various races of people. Since I have never dealt with the Chinese, I have no sense of whether her observation has any merit or not.

    I doubt she has a snowball’s chance in hell of getting anywhere in her campaign, but at least she’s saying it like she sees it. Find that in any other politician.

    Meanwhile, I am still howling over Amus’ perfect segue (sp?). Hilarious and oh-so-funny.

    I guess you haven’t been keeping up with Bernie
    Sanders, Liz Warren or Jill Stein.

    It’s a race between Carly and Rand Paul to see who can say the most stupidest things and thus implode their campaign the quickest. My bet is on Carly.

    Santorum entered the race today, so they have some competition.

    Actually, the whole GOP clown car is in competition for this honor, but Carly and Rand have kind of run out ahead for now. Not handling the media very well…

    Honestly, since it’s primary time, they don’t have to be concerned about handling the media in general well.

    All they need now is to try to out crazy each other with the Fox News crowd.

    It’s when their words come back to haunt them during the general campaign they need to worry about.
