When the unemployment rate hit 10%, O said, it was George' fault.
Please see the link
So, if the economy did not recover, O is already claiming it is BP's fault.
So when is he going to take up the responsibility and say, SHEET, I just can not do anything right.
We are so beyond screwed...

BP is having a hard time, having lost more than 50% of its stock value. The British are not too happy with what they perceive as Obama being anti-British with his BP-bashing. The more its shares dive the faster its demise.
Already PetroChina, ever alert to great buys and acquisitions, is getting ready to be BP's white knight, see www.cnbc.com/id/37607812/
Should it come to this how will US law law makers react? For or against trade globalization?

Some people in the west still think that all the stimulus money in China is going into roads, buildings, and bricks and mortar that either lead to nowhere or are built in no man's land. If true it obviuosly cannot be sustained. But even with the global economic downturn it seems nothing can slow down China's growth, not even the Euro's current troubles.
In the midst of this, many western architectural firms and construction companies are now finding real construction, building, and architectural design innovations coming out from China, not the other way. True to the Chinese spirit of risk-taking in acquisitions of both foreign businesses and new innovations in building gigantic buildings, China is now building mega cities that it claims will help improve he quality of life.

The Chinese are the most pragmatic businessmen you can find anywhere. The Chinese will always regard themselves as developing and not fully industrialised. It is western businessmen and western think tank people who undergo a cultural shock when they visit China, and then start writing articles about the greatness of the new China. After the Chinese have been on top of the world for close to 1,500 years of the last 2,000 years. With such a pedigree and a proven record, it is now just reclaiming its historical status. The problem is that this becomes a bit unsettling to the west, to the extent that westerners in both North America and Europe now see China as their next greatest threat. When you see a threat you are not going to cooperate with it, only to see the gap grow bigger with you on the wrong side.
