A Visit From the Hu Brings Heckling

Bush welcomed Chinese President Hu Jintaoat the White House today:

Bush was quick to serve notice on the Chinese leader that he would continue to press for China to move "toward a flexible market exchange rate for its currency." Hu stood stiffly, as if at attention, as Bush spoke.

Bush also called for more cooperation on addressing the nuclear ambitions of Iran and North Korea.

Both stood, side by side, under bright sunshine on the South Lawn of the White House as the national anthems of both countries were played by a military band.

Bush and Hu then engaged in a ceremonial review of U.S. troops, some dressed in Continental Army uniforms.

For his part, Hu pledged China's help in working diplomatically to ease nuclear tensions with both North Korea and Iran. And he vowed in general terms to work to promote human rights.

"We should respect each other as equals and promote closer exchanges and cooperation," Hu said, speaking through a translator.

But not everyone was welcoming:

A single woman on the camera stand interrupted the welcoming ceremony, shouting in English, "President Bush, stop him from persecuting the Falun Gong!" She also shouted in Chinese, "President Hu, your days are numbered," according to a translation by reporters on the scene. She was forcibly removed from the South Lawn by uniformed Secret Service personnel.

Michelle Malkin has the video clip.
