An Inconvenient Truth

“I am going to go back to Washington and meet with the president of China. He is a dictator. He can do a lot of things through the form of government they have. Maybe I shouldn’t have said dictator, but they have a different type of government than we have … so we have to work in the system we have.” –Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)

Reid’s words are, at their core, words of admiration for the Chinese system — a system in which Hu Jintao can do a lot of things without consent of the governed, while Reid and company actually have to compromise. At least sometimes. No wonder he backpedaled.
