Obama bows, the nation cringes

Nov 17, 2009 Full story: washingtontimes.com 2,013

A little traveling, like a little learning, can be a dangerous thing. Barack Obama on the loose in a foreign land is enough to frighten protocol officers and embarrass the rest of us.

He went off to Asia to tell the Chinese a thing or two about world trade, to prepare the world for a treaty to make the sun change its spots, and of course to pay his respects to assorted heads of state, with particular attention to any royal head (perhaps even including Miss Universe) who crosses his path.

So far it's a memorable trip. He established a new precedent for how American presidents should pay obeisance to kings, emperors, monarchs, sovereigns and assorted other authentic man-made masters of the universe. He stopped just this side of the full grovel to the emperor of Japan, risking a painful genuflection if his forehead had hit the floor with a nasty bump, which it almost did. No president before him so abused custom, traditions, protocol (and the country he represents). Several Internet sites published a rogue's gallery showing how other national leaders - the prime ministers of Israel, India, Slovenia, South Korea, Russia and Dick Cheney among them - have greeted Emperor Akihito with a friendly handshake and an ever-so-slight but respectful nod (and sometimes not even that).

Our black president is a disgrace. He will not salute our flag during our national anthem but he will kiss a dictators hands, bow to others and lick the boots of any marxist that will hold still.



I only mention the fact he is black because that is the only reason he was elected. And see what we got?
Next time around we need to vote for the best person for the position and if they happen to be black that is fine but if they are not that is fine too because color should not be relevant. Obama has no accomplishments and his character is flawed.

Another day, another embarrassment in front of the entire world.

Voting for a marxist punk because the media made you feel smart for supporting him, has it's consequences.

As one would expect in a government run by a Chicago Street Thug, there's much shadiness in the distribution of Government money. A cursory review of money dispensed through the Stimulus (a.k.a. "Debt-Financed DNC Slush Fund") shows millions of dollars are being spent in Congregational Districts that don't exist.

Listings at the Recovery-dot-gov website show millions have been dispensed to the 9th and 86th Congressional District (CD) of Arizona which do not exist, the 42nd CD of Connecticut which does not exist, and to districts in Iowa and Oklahoma which also do not exist.

The apology tour is right on key. The bow was just a token gesture. The real "bow" happened behind closed doors. Known universally as a good old fashioned BJ! Where's the media when you really need them?

Of course, you clueless idiots were silent all those years as Republicans were groveling, bowing, scraping, kissing and walking hand-in-hand with tyrants and despots, weren't you ?

YOU'RE an embarrassment.

I just came across a paper I wrote in college years ago, on Mussolini's Fascist Manifesto. I had to laugh..taking the model from the Brown Shirts, he professed the same strategies employed by Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the anti-American oppugners and antagonists.

I can think of two other presidents that bowed to foreign leaders. Nixon in China and Eisenhower somewhere in Europe.

Guess it was OK for GWB to kiss the leader of Saudi Arabia and stroll down the walkway affectionately holding his hand..after 911 and the "energy summit"..

I can think of at least one foreign leader that George Bush bowed to..can you? I doubt it..unless you're told to remember.

Bush bowed daily to Dick Cheney. That's painfully obvious..but I guess that doesn't count either.

Gee bowing, per oriental custom - how disgraceful! <sarcasm>. Are you people all flaming morons? We shake hands, they bow, the French kiss cheeks. WTF? Obama could solve world hunger, bring world peace, cure cancer and find a cheap way to Mars and you @$$h0!3$ would be condemning him.

The President has been trying to establish a new relationship with the Middle Eastern rulers. For example: The US Department of State is bringing 1,350 more Palestinians to be "resettled" in our country. They will not be happy working in our country because they wiil not be able to adjust to our way-of-life and will start striking-out at Americans:

I don't think he was bowing at all. He was just getting ready to drop his pants and take it up he %*# just as he does his Muslim buddies.

Another stupid comment from a member of the liberal enablers who thinks it's also okay to kill innocent babies via abortion, who think freedom of speech includes porn, who applauds when that idiot president of ours apologizes for America and who think being a pansy is a normal, acceptable way of life.

1. It was the Pledge of Allegiance happening during that "hands-folded" photo you keep nattering about. It was not the National Anthem. This has been proven, re-proven and re-re-re-re-re-proven.

2. You're upset that he kissed a dictator's hand? You must have been MORTIFIED at all the times you saw George W. Bush kissing Saudi sheiks on the mouth!
Not to mention all those times he strolled around holding hands with known terrorist-supporters and Taliban leaders.

A Grownup Weighs in on Chairman Zero's Historic Hubris

Charles Krauthammer provides a little historical perspective on our self-proclaimed First Pacific President's preposterous ego:



Also, Bush Sr. was the unofficial ambassador to China under Ford.

But only Barry Soetoro can claim to be the Moonbat Messiah.

It's always O.K. when the right kisses someones ass - but Obama can't even breathe for the disgruntled GOP fanatics to make a mountain out of a molehill.
