China-bashing increases during US polls, rues dailySeptember 21st, 2012 - 6:16 pm ICT by IANS
Beijing, Sep 21 (IANS) China-bashing becomes intense during US elections and American politicians compete for the toughest stance against the country, rued a Chinese daily Friday.
“The things these politicians have promised are not likely to be realized based upon past experiences, but the promises are still very disturbing,” the Global Times said.
Republican candidate Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama are competing for the toughest stance involving China in the ongoing presidential campaign, it said.
Romney promised to take action against China on his first day of office if elected, and Obama pledged a trade case at the WTO against China’s automobile industry.
The daily regretted that China has become a political card to play in US elections.
This year, Romney and Obama seem to be playing it more heavily, it said.
China has been blamed for the US’ falling unemployment rate. Mutual political mistrust may deepen, thanks to the election.
The provocations by these presidential candidates are too much for Chinese people to bear, it said. “US elections should not be a playground where China is demonized.”
