He'll bow in submission to the slaveowning, Islamic-supremacist "king" of Saudi Arabia. He'll meet with the most evil, belligerent despots in the world, but he won't meet with the peace-promoting Dalai Lama.
His excuse? Economy is more important.
Yeah, right. Like getting the Olympics in Chicago was more imporant than the economy.
That's Barack Hussein Obama, folks. Champion of hate promoters, ie. his good buddies, the tyrannical, mean-spirited, ultra-greedy, world-peace-threatening Chinese Communist Party.
Mr Obama's decision dismayed human rights and Tibetan support groups, who said he had made an unnecessary concession to the Chinese, who regard the Dalai Lama as a "splittist", despite his calls for autonomy rather than independence for Tibet. The Chinese invaded in 1950, forcing the young leader to flee.
Sophie Richardson, Asia advocate for Human Rights Watch, said: "Presidents always meets the Dalai Lama and what happens? Absolutely nothing.
"This idea that if you are nice to the Chinese Communist Party up front you can cash in later is just wrong. If you lower the bar on human rights they will just move it lower and lower."
Over several months of discussions the Tibetans resisted entreaties to delay the meeting, arguing that a refusal would make smaller countries more vulnerable to pressure from China not to meet the Dalai Lama.
If this was 1939, he'd be kissing Hitler's ass. Of course, before Hitler started WWII, the world, like today they're unconcerned about dangerous, belligerent despots, wasn't concerned about that guy.
