Besides adding local color, Jackie Chan would be a most excellent translator of some pretty obsure Americanisms' most foreign dignataries get asked. He could be quite funny, helpful and gracious, too. How civilized,how Chinese!

GOT NEWS FOR YA. ALL THOSE ASIAN OFFICIALS SPEAK PERFECT ENGLISH. THEY DONT SPEAK IT IN THE US BECUZ THEY WANT ENGLISH OFFICIALS TO HAVE TO BOW DOWN TO THE CHINESE BY HAVING SOMEONE "TRANSLATE" ENGLISH IN MANDARIN. IN OTHER WORDS FOR MANDARIN TO BE THE DOMINATE LANGUAGE AND ENGLISH SECONDARY. IT'S THEIR TO GET BACK AT THE YANKS AND BRITS FOR DOMINATING ASIA DURING THE COLONIAL ERA. HELL, ALL OF THEM GO TO TOP SCHOOLS IN THE US AND ENGLAND SO FOR THEM NOT TO SPEAK ENGLISH IN AN ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRY IS REALLY AN INSULT TO THE ENGLISH SPEAKING OFFICIALS. OF COURSE THE YANKS DONT KNOW THAT AND ACT STUPID WHICH IS WHAT THEY WANT. I KNOW THIS CUZ A FRIEND OF MINE KNOWS ONE OF THE DUDES WHO USED TO TRANSLATE FOR HU YINTAO AND CHINESE OFFICIALS.

I'm sure if Jackie was treated a fraction as barbarically as every other NON-famous Chinese citizen in that Communist country he would want no part in schmoozing it up with this evil dictator. He and that Nazi Barbara Streisand should be ashamed, but then again, that's what Liberals do.

Pres Obama has a lot of Chinese, Asian friends. His sister is half Asian. He grew up in Hawaii where the population is mostly Asian.

apart from all the comment's The president Mr + Mrs Obama was the best host for the Leader of China at least they had the courtesy
to behave and treat with a happy atmosphere which I am sure the Chinese Leader MR Hu has noted, Stop crying and moan about Your President he is the best.
