Almost (I believe 90%) believe that U.S is the largest trouble maker on earth. The military presence over the world create a lot of trouble on earth. They also believe that Hainan incident, bombing their embassy and intervention in Taiwan and Japan are direct involvement in China domestic issue. They also believe that US want to keep the superpower on the earth so they will do whatever they can do to prevent Chinese getting better.

It is also different about Chinese people value western politicians.
They believe that best European politician is: Gerhard Schröder, much better than aggressive Angela Merkel. The best U.S politician is Henry Kissinger, much better than George Bush family, believing that they create a lot of mess on earth.

Because most Chinese, like most Americans, feel the need to have a bogeyman to distract from real issues at home.

because they need resources to keep their economy growing. Otherwise, revolution will occur and the communist party will be overthrown violently just like every other dynasty.

Well, truth be told, as far as nations go the only other nation I can think of that could possibly be considered a contender to "biggest troublemaker on Earth" to the same degree that the US is would be Russia, and even then, Russia's sphere of military influence is limited to a fairly short distance from its borders. The conflicts Russia has engaged in since the fall of the Soviet Union are generally in countries on its borders which were formerly part of the Soviet Union, i.e. Ukraine, Georgia, Chechnya. The US' sphere of military influence can be found in most parts of the world, its navy dominates the open oceans, and if they ever wanted to project their military power a great distance they could quite easily as recent and historical wars have shown (Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Korea, etc).

I think that most people the world over would agree that the worst U.S. politicians are the Bush family, and they're certainly on the money for this lifetime. In the past, Richard Nixon would be a contender; thanks to Watergate and the escalation of the war in Vietnam, he's a much-reviled character in the US, though the Chinese position on him is more favorable because of his overtures towards them. Similarly, Henry Kissinger enjoys a favorable view in China because he was the architect of the opening between the US and China, and someone who saw its potential as an economic and military superpower, and partner if not friend, best kept in the US' good graces while most of the rest of the US still thought of China as the ideological brother of its sworn enemy, the USSR.

These days, despite any media commentaries that would seem to indicate otherwise, US-Chinese relations are guarded, but aren't exactly horrible. At the same time that during his recent visit Chuck Hagel was "lectured" by the Chinese that China couldn't be contained and he "warned" China not to meddle with Japan's sovereignity, the fact is that the reason he was there was because our nations are cooperating on a fairly high level. Both sides need to save face with their people and their allies, but they also know what's what.

Actually, Chinese people (not government, of course) are supporting Russia because Putin uses Russians' super power to challenge Uncle Sam's hegemony. Many Chinese believe that U.S is the key reason China cannot take Taiwan back and believe that sooner or later, China can get Taiwan back.

There is controversy in Chinese people about Obama. Senior Chinese people believe that Obama is a very soft leader in U.S political history, claiming that he is nail-biting toward many situations and have to use his power to solve problem rather than reach agreement internally....For young generation, Obama is role model and believe that if Chinese moving slowly toward democratic reform, there is a chance that similar background maybe in the China central leadership.

The best US politician in last 30 years. Many answers, but most of them knew nothing except President, Secretary of State, and Defense Secretary. However, I found a unique answer: Iowa governor, Terry Branstad from a mid-30s Chinese friend's friend. This guy was in U.S for some years, having the the most negative view on Upper Midwest and believe that Upper Midwest people willing to confront any situations, while southern guys have real "mouth" power to confrontation..He also say: If Ron Paul (or his son) elected as President, it will be a great contribution to world peace...

I don't really see what China would gain by Taiwan, Taiwan is doing very well on it's own, especially considering the political ramifications of it. Taiwan should gain independence soon.

The Chinese government only broadcasts want they deem 'proper'. This, along with internet censorship, gives the government immense power as far as what the populace thinks. I've been here in Nanging for a week, and CCTV is the only broadcast TV, and has one English channel (all news) that I've been watching.
I believe (as long as we are stating facts pulled from the anatomy where the sun don't shine) that educated Chinese, who have traveled abroad, would give just about anything to immigrate to the U.S., and have the freedoms and opportunities we take for granted. The fact that a visa to the U.S. is very hard to get, tells me that my belief is true.

China has no intention to annex Taiwan, at least for the foreseeable future, because like you said, Taiwan is doing well and China only wants to deepen the ties.

However, if Taiwan does declare independence, China will not hesitate to attack it, no matter what the west does. There is no question about it. I don't think Taiwan has any chance of being independent without some sort of a third world war, and I am not sure if the US has the apetite for that. China hates wars and will do everything to avoid it, but when it comes to Taiwan, they won't hesitate for a second.
