The “wolves” in question in this upbeat tune are the Americans. Or should I say “the running dogs of Wall Street?”

What else can you expect from an administration that hired Anita Dunn? Her favorite political philosopher, she told us, was Mao Zedong. I wonder if Van Jones managed to make it for the State Dinner. This Obama appointee never renounced his Communism.

In his entire demeanor before the Chinese Communist ruler, Mr. Obama kowtowed. He lowered himself and us before the world’s biggest dictator.

Kowtowing is even worse, from the democracy perspective, than bowing. Kowtowing involves striking the forehead three times to the ground on approaching China’s ruler--the Emperor of the Middle Kingdom.

Lord McCartney—not Sir Paul—famously tried to get away without kowtowing before the Emperor of China. His Lordship offered instead to kneel three times as he approached the Celestial Throne of China. That legend began in 1792 and was said to have resulted in this distinguished British diplomat getting the imperial boot. At least Lord McCartney had a sense of how low he should go in advancing his sovereign’s cause.

President Obama has no such sense. Every day, it seems, he finds new ways to humiliate his country—and his countrymen.
