Obama Bows To Emperor of Japan

Apparently, Obama forgot again that American Presidents do not bow to foreign royalty. Once again, against all protocol, Obama deeply bows to Japan's Emperor Akihito.



Obama came under fire just mere months ago for his obvious bow to the King of Saudi Arabia, which White House staff denied he actually did.



Given his penchant for bowing and his apparent inability to make a decision on reinforcing our Troops in Afghanistan, maybe he should just "bow out" and let a real leader take over.

I wonder if he met the Queen of England yet and if so, did he bow?

I could make a politically incorrect bad joke about his 'bowing' but I won't.

Canuck, he did met Queen Elizabeth, around the same time he met the King of Saudi Arabia.

He did not bow, but more or less, gave her a nod of his head.

Well that meeting with the Queen was certainly different than the bowing and scraping he did for the two male monarchs. Seems to me he was getting ready to shine their shoes.(Oh darn, I was not going to make the politically incorrect crack)

I thought he was preparing to lick their boots, canuck.

Oops, I guess I made my own politically incorrect crack ;-)

We may be comedians, but the joker is in the White House.

Lew,
the reason he did not bow to the Queen of England was because his father was Kenyan and the Queen was the head of State in Englnad at the time the British fought the Kenyan Mau-Maus who were fighting against British Armed forces. That is also the reason he sent the bust of Winston Churchill back to Great Britain.
The Queen of England is perceived by Obama as a colonialist monarch, while the King of Saudi Arabia, well...... he is a Muslim monarch. In Obama's "progressive leftist" mind there is a huge difference between the two of them.
