Chinese Paper Blasts Obama Ahead of Visit

VOA News
November 05, 2014 1:21 AM

Just days before President Barack Obama travels to China for a regional summit, a prominent, state-run paper there is accusing him of being an ineffective leader who has done an "insipid" job in office.

This trip to Asia offers him an opportunity to play ball and bring home some needed wins.....
