Rachel Maddow Takes Mitt Romney To Task For His Mixed Message On China


The Obama administration went after China again this week, this time with a challenge on their vehicle import tariffs, and as this article from the Detroit Free Press explains, this is just one in a series of disputes we've seen from the administration in recent months: Obama challenges China on vehicle import tariffs.

That hasn't stopped the Romney campaign from constantly attacking the Obama administration on everything from their handling of the Chinese dissident case, to claiming that President Obama has been "treated as China's doormat."

As Rachel noted, the Romney campaign has been doing a lot of "barking" on the Obama administration's policy towards China, but what we've actually gotten from Romney is a very mixed message with lots of tough talk and "squeamish reservations" on how he'd actually deal with China. Par for the course with Mitt Romney, we've got him talking out of both sides of his mouth on yet another issue.
