Obama (hearts) Beijing

"Citizen of the world":
Think about the amount of money that China has spent on infrastructure. Their ports, their train systems, their airports are vastly the superior to us now, which means if you are a corporation deciding where to do business you're starting to think, "Beijing looks like a pretty good option."
Yes, he actually said it:

This is a reiteration of the idea that Italian fascists "made the trains run on time." Chinese airports are not "vastly superior" to ours, and if they've invested more in rail transportation, that's simply because so few Chinese own cars. (Europeans also travel more by rail.)
