Bush, in China for Olympics, offers praise, criticism

President Bush started a four-day visit to China Friday with a mixed message of praise for Chinese economic policies but criticism of the Chinese approach toward religious and political freedoms, a strategy that has so far marked his three-nation Asian tour. On Friday, he dedicated the new U.S. Embassy, greeted U.S. athletes and was to attend the opening ceremonies.
