it is just political bullshit. it came along with the 'apology tour" where there was absolutely no apology at all.<quoted text>
The fact is that American Presidents have politely bowed to foreign leaders.
The whole issue of Obama bowing, as if this had NEVER occurred before and represented a HUGE "gaffe" of some kind, is partisan political crap and you know it.
just mindless parrots repeating crap they do not even understand.
but a head of state does not bow to a foreign king. heads of state bow to japanese statesmen and they bow back. that is their greeting.
when obama bowed to the Saudi king, it was no big whoop, but it is not what most heads of state do with foreign kings.
