President Hu Visits the White House...
Talk about loosing face?! Not only did we refer to China as the wrong country "The Republic of China (e.g.- Tiawan!), and then play our national anthem (so embarassing) but then a protester shouted down President Hu...(less embarassing! good for her)....The little I know of Asian culture and the concept of 'face' has me believing that our visiting friends from China were very embarassed for us.
Of course I wandered down and took some pictures of protesters near the White House...
One can only imagine the confusion caused by this visit.
"Mr. President, President Hu is here to see you."
