Chinese President Spends Chats Online With Citizens

Of course the Chinese government is trying to do everything in its’ power to make itself look good these days so it is little wonder that Chinese President Hu Jintao would take the time to surf the net and chat with a few of the people he has ultimate authority over. But then again, it is interesting to actually see a live chinese prez out there talking to people…something that anyone who grew up in the 60’s and 70’s will never remember having seen before.
On Friday June 20 according to chinese media, the president of China strolled into the government-owned newspaper, the Peoples’ Daily while the paper was in the midst of 60th anniversary celebrations to assist in those celebrations.
During his time there he stated that although he was personally too busy to surf the net daily, he still enjoyed reading international news and opinions.
The president then signed onto the Peoples’ Daily chat system with the help of a Peoples’ Daily employee and spent a portion of the day chatting to people on the internet discussing topics ranging from the Olympics to daily life in China and the ongoing earthquake rebuilding effort.
This is something every leader in the world should do…get out and talk to the people.

    Isn’t it nice that he found time in his busy schedule of imprisoning and executing people that disagree with him to chat with some of his future victims.

    “Some difference, they feed you before they execute you here.”

    Canada doesn’t have capital punishment. Our government prefers to keep us alive so they can slowly tax us to death.

    It’s nice to see he personally go out on the net to find his victims. At least he takes this seriously.
