Oh, Chinese state-run media. The Obama camp just can’t quit you.
Sure, Vice President Biden could have quoted one of the many, many, many American “reporters” bashing Romney, but there’s just something about China’s propaganda machine that speaks to Team Obama.
First, deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter called Xinhua’s Romney bashing a “must read” before laughably claiming Mitt Romney won’t stand up to China. And now Biden is also getting the warm fuzzies over the always insightful Communist Party news agency.

Why “seldom,” Joe? The whole campaign is getting in on the sweet, sweet Communist propaganda action.
Uncle Joe’s Xinhua-snuggling, via The Hill.
Seriously, this is what the Chinese government news agency said, and I quote, ‘It’s rather ironic that a considerable portion of this China battering politician’s wealth was actually obtained by doing business with Chinese companies before he entered politics.’
But remember, Mitt Romney’s honesty when he thinks he’s not being recorded is way worse than what Obama and company serve up for the cameras.
