Biden insists China is 'not competition' for the U.S. - prompting Mitt Romney to tell him 'this will not age well' and Bernie Sanders to says he's 'wrong'
Campaigning in Iowa City on Wednesday former Vice President Joe Biden insisted that the world's No. 2 economy is not a threat to the United States.
The politician who came out of retirement to compete for the Democratic nomination said the Chinese are too busy straitening out regional issues and internal corruption to pose a threat to the United States' global hegemony.
'China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man,' Biden said at an event on his first swing through Iowa. 'I mean, you know, they're not bad folks, folks. But guess what? They're not a — they're not competition for us.'

Ch!na is not competition coz it is far more advanced than US. Just look at its fast train network. What has US to offer in comparison? Trains are the main part of infrastructure in our world.

Americans don't like trains. We have a car culture. We need more highways. We can't even carpool let alone get on trains.

Hate to tell ya Joe but China is by far the biggest threat to the USA both economically and militarily. If you don't understand that truth you are too dumb to be elected dog catcher.
