A.M. Links: U.S. Ambassador Rousted in China, Hospitals Agree: Obamacare is Great — for Other People, Chicago Teachers Back to Work
It's love a U.S. ambassador in month! An angry mob surrounded Ambassador Gary Locke's car in Beijing, but he wasn't hurt in the melee. Oddly, the U.S. public's opinion of the administration's foreign policy has plummeted. It's not so popular in China, either, where Leon Panetta has promised we mean them no harm.
- Mitt Romney continues to take flak over his "47 percent" comment, while he responds with an old video of Obama endorsing wealth redistribution. Really, why is Gary Johnson not soaring in the polls?
- Muslim leaders in Israel want that anti-Islam video banned, and French authorities prohibited weekend protests in Paris in anticipation of the ususal furor in response to the magazine Charlie Hebdo's publication of cartoons depicting Mohammed.
- The vast majority of hospitals are making no efforts to form the integrated healthcare networks at the core of Obamacare, despite bribes to do exactly that. It seems they're perceived as an expensive pain-in-the-ass.
- Chicago public school teachers will be back educating occupying space in classrooms, having voted to accept the latest offer they extracted from city officials.
- The German government is publicly urging people to ditch Internet Explorer, because it's a piece of crap.
- Riverside County, California, deputies pepper-sprayed and beat-to-death Dennis Katz, who was suspiciously … umm … waiting to pick his grandaughter up from school. His family is suing.
