    Well, I would rather have him do a formal bow to the Japanese symbolic leader, than see him kissing Saudis, like Georgie Boy did.

    I'm a little disapointed in the bow simply because a president is suppose to be a strong figure and not one that kneels before everyone. I think that most people don't realize is that it was not a mutual bow that would show equals but a one-sided bow where the emperor (a figurehead of royalty) did not bow back. Has anyone asked why the emperor did not bow with Obama? I bet if you asked the Emperor of Japan he would tell you that it would not be appropriate for him to bow yet it seems ok for the president to bow to him.

    I would also like to ask is how many Americans would bow to any royalty themselves. I bet most people would just laugh their ass off at such a request yet our president does not have the self-esteem of the average American citizen.

    To sum it up. The president went in thinking that he and the Emperor would each put on a kick-me sign on them but after Obama put his on the Emperor of Japan refused then started laughing his ass off at the president.

    again...Nixon bowed to Hirohito.... Nixon bowed to the fucking Pope...

    Ike bowed to a fucking frog, Charles DeGaulle, and NOBODY on the right said BOO about any of that.

    the faux outrage is hilarious!
