This could turn into a huge incident between the US and China.

An Obama Lama Dingdong, if you will.

The President can meet any person, but the Dalai Lama is a god-king. That may technically discount him as a person and ergo ipso facto, China gets a say on who gets to meet him.

I miss the days when China just demanded we not recognize Taiwan or it would permanently damage relations
 
2014-02-21 08:35:00 AM
What's next? China forbids the Pope from meeting the Dalai Lama, because it will hurt Catholics?

He's just going to play golf with him.

It's worked before, so you can't blame China for trying.

I think Obama should treat him like the Chinese Ambassador, just to piss them off.

The President of the United States meets who he wants.  Get over it.
 
2014-02-21 10:18:53 AM
Doesn't every president meet with the Dalai Lama?  Isn't this just a canned protest by China because that's what they feel like they're supposed to do?

Rev. Skarekroe: Doesn't every president meet with the Dalai Lama?  Isn't this just a canned protest by China because that's what they feel like they're supposed to do?


Considering that they've declared that they're going to choose the next reincarnation of all clergy from now on, they've pretty much decided that if they can't have control of this one, they're going to get the next. Of course, the Dalai Lama has declared that he won't reincarnate in China controlled lands, this might be a sticking point with a lot of Tibetans, but at this point, they're pretty much used to the Chinese being dicks...

The President cancelled a meeting with the Dalai Lama in 2009 to placate China. Like I said - You can't blame China for trying.
 
2014-02-21 10:41:31 AM
Here's a thing - every time any president is scheduled to meet the Dalai Lama, China will raise the objection. It's the standard reaction for China for decades. Why is this any different from any other time it happened?
 
2014-02-21 10:54:59 AM
"cannot"?

Fu*k you.

What did the Dalai Lama say to the hot dog vendor?
 
2014-02-21 11:45:49 AM
Fark you, China. The only American you get to dictate anything to is Wal-Mart. How about we pull out business out and watch your economy fold like a paper napkin?

ZAZ: Obama is having an affair?


We need Bill Clinton in here to explain the meaning of "his own affair".  Also "his", "own", and "affair".

Can we get George Bush Jr. to barf on the Dalai Lama?

China calls the Dalai Lama a "wolf in sheep's clothing..."

Yeah right...like anyone in China can even pronounce the word "wolf."

They're just warning Obama that he doesn't tip well. So, beware.

Can we have an Avignon Lama?

And we wouldn't want to hurt their feelings. Where else can we get tainted formula, poison dog food, and toys full of heavy metals?

Say what you want about this president's politics, but so far he has been the cleanest most upstanding guy to hold the office I can remember.

 a Nobel Peace Prize laureate

That will be fun. I can picture the conversation. "What did you do for your peace prize?" "Oh, I constantly preach about love and respect for your fellow man. How about you?" "I run drone campaigns to blow up wedding parties and children.  Hell, some people in the UN have even called it war crimes." "Oh, that's nice. I guess they are at peace now."
