One of the surprise outcomes of the Obama's Presidency, is that the USA has fallen from the rank of nations that incur the wrath of the SHOE-THROWERS. Now that President George W. Bush is out of office, shoe-throwers every where are reexamining their targets and going after the most influential. I am sorry to report that the United States has fallen from the A-list of Shoe-Throwers and is no longer a target. This is bad news for CHINA. Today China felt the attack of a SHOE-THROWER, the London Times reports, that
The Chinese Prime Minister narrowly avoided being hit by a flying shoe yesterday as his three-day visit to Britain ended with an Iraqi-style protest from a member of the audience at the University of Cambridge.
Wen Jiabao was nearing the end of his lecture to a hand-picked audience of Cambridge students when a young man in the auditorium blew a whistle and shouted: “How can the university prostitute itself with this dictator?”
As security guards converged on him, the man, who had a pronounced German accent, continued to shout. “How can you listen to these lies?”
Before the guards could stop him, the unidentified protester took off his shoe, a heavy grey trainer, and threw it at the stage, missing Mr Wen by a few feet. Two large security guards immediately moved on to the stage at the West Road Concert Hall to shield the Prime Minister.
The Invisible Hand has a theory and it goes like this, If you are being attacked by SHOE-THROWERS, you must be a SUPER POWER, Is CHINA the reigning SUPER POWER NOW? Has the USA been replaced by CHINA now that Obama is our President? Only time will answer these questions, but the Invisible Hand believes that President Obama will not be attacked by shoes in the next four years because our day as the SUPER POWER are over, especially in the SHOE-THROWER'S eyes.
