Gaffe | Obama Bows Again To Hu Jintao

It starts around 1:00 on the video posted below.

& another one...
This time in China to President Hu Jintao.

Why would you not bow to royalty, say the Queen of England but go around in a bowing frenzy when etiquette does not require you to and certainly not if your President. As former VP Cheney said, a President is not required, nor is he expected to bow. As I mentioned in the previous post, not only is it humiliating but the perception is more detrimental than anything else. His toe touches give the impression of weakness.

Who cares if he bowed. President Dwight D. Eisenhower bowed to Charles de Gaulle (France) and President Richard Milhous Nixon bowed to Emperor Hirohito (Japan) but don’t let the facts get in the way, believe the lies you want but the facts stay constant.
