Chinese Dissent Liu Xiaobo Sentenced to 11 Years

Mr. President, could you rouse yourself from your vacation to notice this human rights crime? You fairly bowed before the Chinese PM in Copehagen: could you stand up straight for human rights? Remember your Nobel speech? You said you cared about them; you struck a brave rhetorical pose. Can you ever deliver on anything worthwhile?

Liu Xiaobo was sentenced by the Chi-coms on Christmas Day to 11 years in prison. His crime? Demanding that the Chinese government be accountable to the people for its actions. As of this time, MC has no knowledge of any condemnation of this unjust sentence by the President. This is shameful but of a piece with this weak, craven President.
