Did he just say what I think he said?

Despite all the many, many things that I don’t like about our country at the moment, it’s videos like this that still make me proud to call myself an American. This is what the people in China saw while they were watching Obama’s inauguration speech on Tuesday on one of the Chinese news stations. Yes, as soon as they realize that he just said something bad about communism they cut away to the anchor right in the middle of the speech. Afterwards the Chinese people got to see the speech with certain parts edited out. It’s hard to believe that such an advanced country could still be subject to such controlling practices.
