Obama bows, again!


web posted November 16, 2009
OPINION – President Obama and the White House tried to claim his bowing to the Saudi king Abdullah earlier this year wasn’t a bow (Below) Oboma, they claimed, was just so much taller he was trying to look the king in the eye. The excuse did not stand up unless one’s eyes are on the floor. So this weekend Obama went to Japan and met with Japanese Emperor Akihito and, once again, assumed the subservient role by a deep bow (Above). In 233 years no American president has bowed to a leader of any country, especially “royalty”.

Not only is Obama breaking State Department protocol, he is in essence shaming Americans who fought to find freedom stating it would be better to die standing than living bending their knees.

One should not find this embarrassing repeated ritual surprising considering Obama has been to all four corners of the globe apologizing to the world for America being so horrible. Something else no sitting president has ever done.    

He campaigned saying
that “America is the greatest country on Earth,” then invited voters to support him in “changing it.”

So far he’s doing an outstanding job of accomplishing just that.

Unemployment is now over 10%, something that he said would never happen if Congress would just pass his trillion-dollar “stimulus” plan no one read. He has taken over two of the three American car companies, numerous financial institutions, the economy is in shambles, he’s created more debt to the taxpayers than any president in history (in less than a year), and now wants to take over healthcare.

His posturing gives a signal of weakness to the world, that America is subservient to other leaders. What a complete embarrassment to what America stands for, again.

The spinners of the White House say Obama was following "protocol" because it was a mutual "bow". Like everything else out of this administration, they make this claim in spite of video showing that (as was their excuse last time) to be a lie.

A "President" does not bow to any other heads of state, and certainly not “royalty”.

Since you are so good at making apologies, we will be anxiously awaiting your apology to our nation, Mr. Obama.
