Obama looks to China for ideas

Obama seems to have a certain affection for China. A few weeks ago, he told us that the Chinese infrastructure is "vastly superior to us now. Which means if you're a corporation deciding where to do business, you're starting think... Bejing looks like a pretty good option. Why aren't we doing the same thing?" (YouTube here.)

Now he wants to copy their approach to after school care,
"And we’ll help ensure that more of our kids have access to quality after school and summer school and extended school days for students who need it - because if they can do that in China, we can do that right here in the United States of America."
Putting down the United States of America and comparing it to China isn't going to play well in America's heartland. They also have a one-child policy in China, Senator Obama. Should we copy that too, so that we can pay for all the "improvements" that will once again make America equal to China?
