Hu Jintao to Japanese Kids: I Was Elected
AFTER RUMMAGING THROUGH some old news, Chinese netizens dug out a priceless
video of Chinese Chairman Hu Jintao, which immediately went viral.
So the story captured on the video sets in Japan’s Yokohama Yamate Chinese
School, where an eight-year-old Japanese boy stoop up before the chairman who
was on a state visit to the island nation in May 2008.
Songtian Haoji asked:
Grandpa Hu, why did you want to be the chairman?
And the classic answer?
Let me tell you, I myself did not want to be the chairman. It was the people
in the whole nation who voted me in and made me the chairman. I should not let
the whole nation down, right?
The classroom bursted into a light-hearted laughter at the boy’s innocence.
Yet unfortunately, the joy was not shared with Hu’s “constituents" at home.
Due to inaccordance with “national policies," the conversation between Hu and
Songtian was deleted from the news when it was broadcast to audience in mainland
And does anyone remember ever electing Hu to office?
YouTube user onlycan2 commented
on the video:
Could it be that I voted for him in my dreams?
Chen Lei Lyte commented:
What does the ballot look like?

Hu and Wen [Jiabao] have both said similar things in Japan, so embarrassing,
as if Japanese people would believe it. No wonder the Japanese would look down
on the Chinese. It’s because Chinese leaders are all liars, disgracing people of
the whole nation.
