  6. Interesting that the boob Obama doesn’t learn from his mistakes. So he mistakenly bows to the Saudi King then he nearly touches his toes in disrespect to the Japanese Emperor. I think it is partly because of the arrogance of Obama. He prolly doesn’t listen to adults who tried to explain to him any bow was inappropriate for an American. But a 90 degree bow is also a sign of disrespect in Japan. Only Obamaphiles will still try to smooth this one over. The embarrassments continue to pile up.

  7. THe lefitsts who apologize for the boob Obama don’t know the history of why our leaders don’t bow to other world leaders and monarchs. They weren’t taught in public school why our flag never bows or is below that of other nations. We fought a revolution to free ourselves from monarchs. Men and women died for that freedom. Only dumb leftists liberal Democrats would dismiss that.

  8. It sure is fun watching Obowma’s supporters trying to defend him on this issue.

  9. I wonder how much Gillie was paid by the DNC to come here and say something that makes him sound like a DORK.

    Let me explain this is very simple language for a simpleton like gillie, and please note I am not American but I do know the etiquette.

    First of all, a head of state, that is the man or woman who has the Office of the President of the United States, or the Governor General of Australia, or the Queen of England, bows to another head of state. They look each other in the eye. The best example of this Protocol is the story about Jackie Kennedy at the funeral of her husband JFK when she greeted Prince Phillip. Jackie knew the Protocol, and she did what an ordinary citizen would do, she made a curtsy to Prince Phillip, who then stated that she did not have to do that, but Jackie responded that she is no longer the wife of the President…. a perfect response from a perfect lady.

    Second, as a private citizen, when I greet someone who is Chinese or Japanese etc, I will give a short nod as a greeting of respect. This is a normal practice for me in my own country, and appreciated by those I have greeted that way. The last thing I would do is to give a low subservient bow to these people. We are on equal terms.

    Third, from the body language point of view, the bow made to the Emperor of Japan was one of SUBSERVIENCE. In fact it was meant to be an apology, and I do think that every thinking American, and their Allies should be howling in disgust over that bow. The Allies won the war against Japan. The role of Emperor has been changed from that of being seen as a demi-god into that of being an ordinary man. We have Hirohito to thank for that transformation of this role, and we have Hirohito to thank for the transition of the Japanese people from being heavily militaristic into a more passive nation eager to build up their expertise in so many areas.

    Fourth, there have been lots of photographs showing various world leaders greeting Akihito, and not one of them did that dreadful deep bow…. they know better than to be subservient. I have now had the opportunity to look at the Bill Clinton photograph. It was a very slight nod of the head with hands folded together… he was attempting to be respectful, and I would give it a pass. The photo of Ronald Reagan was interesting because both the Emperor and Reagan gave a slight bow, and again this was mutual and acceptable. I saw the Nixon “bow” supposedly to Mao Tse Tung, except he did not greet Mao with a bow, they shook hands.

    On the other hand Doofus shook hands and did a sweeping bow. This was totally unacceptable, and it had nothing to do with custom!!!!!!!!!!! Anybody who says that it was custom has not a single clue about Protocol, let alone anything else….. and should just go sit in a corner and shut up.

    I have another reason for it – what he did reminds me of the San Francisco Prius owning elite in South Park (you know the one that featured George Clooney being really smug with his thank you speech) who used to bend over and smell their own odor. I am betting that Doofus let one rip, and just like those San Francisco elite people, he could not help himself…. ROFL… sorry it is just the way that it is hitting me…. ROFL

  11. Good one, sA 🙂

    I’m beginning to wonder if it doesn’t come back to finances, again. Obama *is* subservient to the Emperor of Japan… financially speaking. (Japan being the other top country, along with China, that ‘owns’ Obama under his $1.5 trillion deficit policy.)

  12. Good point, ILC. I guess the White House barred the photographers from the blowjob that Obama had to give to the Chinese President.

  13. Wow. Jackie O more classy than Maobama. Chew on that one for a bit, ghillie.

    Comment by ThatGayConservative — November 18, 2009 @ 9:48 pm - November 18, 2009

  14. So, I’m guessing the 44 World Leaders who didn’t bow to the Emperor of Japan were disrespecting him?

    Comment by V the K — November 18, 2009 @ 10:42 pm - November 18, 2009

  15. Hey V the K…. I don’t have to guess a damn thing about you… it’s perfectly clear how foolish you are ?

  16. Spartann, V wasn’t defending Obama, I assure you. He was pointing out how Obama’s idiotic handlers who are afraid of correcting or contradicting their ignorant brat are now saying that all 44 other world leaders who didn’t bow to the Emperor are wrong.

  19. gillie and S’part-Ann dropped by to call everyone here crude and out of touch with reality. Thanks, gillie and S’part-Ann, I will review my copy of Barney Frank’s Rules of Civility for Barnyard Animals and Common Pests and try to act accordingly. Let’s see, Chapter One is by David Letterman and is entitled: Never Take a Cheap Shot, Unless You Make the Peanut Gallery Wet Themselves.

  22. Ha! Obama apologizes for “Freedom Fries.”

    Comment by Jeremayakovka — November 19, 2009 @ 8:37 pm - November 19, 2009

  23. I wish somebody would apologize for those Chicken Fries at BK. Yeesh!

    It’s cool, though, that they use Peter Thomas for their commercials.
