From an article that ran yesterday in The New York Times about a Chinese firm's offer to buy the oil giant Unocal:
Gary C. Hufbauer, a trade expert at the Institute for International Economics, said the administration wanted to keep the issues involving China as separate as possible, from its currency policy to its surging textile exports to its enforcement of American patent and copyrights.
"What the administration wants to do is avoid putting all these issues together into what some would want to call a single 'coherent' China policy,'" he said....
A coherent Bush policy on an international issue?
Hey, why spoil a perfect record?
