Texas Two Step - Olympics

I am glad President Bush made it to the Olympics, and also opened a bigger embassy in China for the US. This will have a lasting impact to improve US China relations.

Some of the actions the last couple of days were interesting.

President Bush in China makes speech in Thailand in areas China needs to improve.
Arrives in Beijing and aides and reporters on jet were delayed 3 hours.
Another speech in Beijing much nicer.
Grand opening of new embassy.
Great appearance at the Olympics, all smiles.

My opinion, the speech in Thailand was to give political cover for having a pleasant trip in Beijing, and the 3 hours delay was China's quiet way of saying they did not appreciate the speech right before the Olympics.
