Obama, Chinese Premier Tout Deepening Ties

President Barack Obama says the U.S. relationship with China is deepening beyond trade and economics to cover climate, security and other matters of international concern.

Obama spoke to reporters before starting meetings Wednesday with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. Nearing the end of his first-ever trip to China, Obama says he came determined to strengthen a vital partnership.

For his part, Wen said Obama's visit is setting the U.S.-China partnership on a better path. Said Wen: "We are really on the cusp of moving forward with this relationship."

Obama had already met extensively with Chinese President Hu Jintao on the trip. Obama was to take in some sightseeing at the Great Wall of China before departing for South Korea later Wednesday.

    We have been in Debt to China and "others" for a long time.During the former eights years we enjoyed some tax breaks on the middle of the road tax payers,which are the burden bearers for paying debts in this country.Lessened revenues produced higher borrowing and no one to "pay the bills". The wealth that you speak of being spread around ? Would you please input some facts.Unless you are part of a very wealthy 3 to 10 percent in this country I can't find where any of your "wealth is going to be spread around",The top 3% wealth of this country pays very little if any taxes,but has invested largely in overseas markets.If someone owns 97% persent of the wealth in this country they should be carrying 97% of the of the burden.Yes and there is someone looking and sees what's going on.Regardless of Global warming theories,we have been for years destroying natures domains.I am not a global warming fan,but I do think that some "Green" ideas are good for our lands.Alternatives can be good.

    Seems my translator took a different scope of what Jiabao said, he told me he said" Mr Obama, we own you and your country, now behave and stop spending, we cannot afford it.

    Deepening beyond trade and economics? How about putting restrictions on how many goods from China is allowed to be imported into the US and forcing them to accept more of our exported goods. Economics!!! Stop spending and borrowing money Obama!!! You don't earn the money that we repay China and you shouldn't have say so and speak on the behalf of hard working Americans who didn't deserve getting in debt with them in the first place. Take some of your money and spread your wealth to ones who are in need. You lying hypocrite. Go ahead on with your CLIMATE change agenda which is nothing but a scare tactic which is helping you, other dirty constituates and especially Al Gore to make millions and millions of dollars. Global warming? bla bla. The hottest year ON RECORD was back in the 1930's!!! Keep on deceiving this country and the rest of the world because of your greed for the love of power and money because that is the root of all evil. God sees what's going on here and will take revenge

    Obama got Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao not to call in Obama's Trillions of dollars in loans we owe China. If China called in those loans Obama just might as well stay there.
