Obama Bows Down Again

And before anyone says this was a cultural gesture ... No other world leaders bow to Emperor Akihito. Are all those other leaders lacking respect for Akihito? I think not.
In a proper cultural meaning that gesture would have been simultaneously returned.
It wasn't.
And for men, the hands are at the sides.
This bow wasn't even executed properly in accordance with Japanese custom.

OK - here's the full video...

By subordinating himself to other world leaders, this U.S. President has damaged the prestige of the office he holds and of the country. The press in other countries are now running stories with headlines calling him the Groveller-in Chief.

Obama did not bow to Queen Elizabeth. Michelle patted her on the back though. (hint: You don't touch the Queen)

He bowed to the Saudi King Abdullah.

Maybe Obama just grovels before people who buy our debt.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

The US President should bow down to NO ONE.

Who cares if he bows? I find it respectful. Some of you people are way too sensitive. Find some real problems to complain about.

Do you have any idea how RUDE it would have been for him not to bow? You are so out of touch with other cultures, I find it absolutely mind-blowing.

Yeah RUDE like those other foreign leaders.. get a grip will ya?

Rudeness has nothing to do with this.

A handshake would have done just as well.

Oh wait... you mean RUDE like patting Queen Liz on the back? and not even meeting with the Dalai Lama?

hahahahah! Good one!
