Wen visits grain farmers (and it's not even election year!)

Premier Wen visits grain farmers in Hebei:

Premier Wen visits farmers in HebeiThe more I hear about this fellow the more I like him. Recently it was shaking hands with AIDs sufferers now its farmers. The last one of the "top Men" to get out and about this much was Mao on his Long country stroll!

"Chinese Premier Premier Wen Jaibao has said that the central government's new policies to favor grain producers had taken effect, a conclusion from his chats with farmers in north China's Hebei Province on Sunday.

Last year, Wen had impressed his people by shaking hands with AIDS patients and helping a common rural woman obtain defaulted wages for her husband. This time, the affable Premier squatted with farmers to check the seedling growth. "

And if you go to an earlier post today you will see what Wen was doing almost 15 years ago.
