The Bow is back

Remember The Bow.
You know, the one which the White House denied was a bow, in one of the earlier displays of the White House thinking we are stupid:
“It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah,” said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
You know, the one which gave rise to the claim by a washed-up photo analyst blogger that Bush bowed too? (He didn’t)

to the full extent allowed by law.
When Obama was in Japan and bowed to Emperor Akihito, my Japanese wife had a good laugh at the picture.
She asked me why the president was bowing to him (foreign leaders are not supposed to bow to the Japanese emperor) …
but even funnier was the biggest misstep of all … something even the dopiest run-of-the-mill expats do that never fails to elicit laughs from the Japanese … bowing to someone while you’re shaking their hand!!!
Believe me … my wife was just one of tens of millions of Japanese laughing at the supposedly “cool” president.
What a dork!
The Special Operations for America video gave me chill bumps. Very moving!
Same here. The hair on my arms stood up.
I remember the bow-ing days. I thought the next thing he was going to do was to put on a tu-tu and curtsy to them.
But, then, I guess I’m a stupid man who has failed to realize what a humble, truly inspiring leader of the world he is. Perhaps, I need some time alone with a book of his sayings to “get my mind right.”
Wow. I hope they run this one. Being in CA I won’t see it unless it is on cable.
Now, the Left is even disparaging the SpecOps community. Nothing is beyond the Pale for them. Nothing.
Obama’s ludicrous habit of bowing like an ignorant and subservient serf to every Third World potentate who crosses his path is one of those un-American behaviors of Mr. Citizen-of-the-World that raise the hackles of every real American.
YOU TAKE THAT BACK! YOU CAN’T SAY ALL HE DOES IS BOW TO FOREIGNERS. HE ALSO BOWS TO MAYORS OF SMALL AMERICAN CITIES. LEAVE OBAMA ALONE! IT’S HARD TO REMEMBER ALL THIS PROTOCOL CRAP! STOP THE HATE.
Obama only bowed to the Mayor of Tampa because he thought she was foreign. She’s part Italian, and Obama was confused by her swarthy Mediterranean appearance, because she didn’t look like the stereotype of blond, blue-eyed colonial devils that Obama carries in his head.
Well…. ok. But, Obama inherited a mess from Bush, you know, and he saved the UAW, I mean GM. And he created more Welfare Office jobs than Reagan and Bush combined, so he’s like the best jobs president ever. And he showed the SEALs how it’s done on the Bid Laden thing. Oh look! Over there! A distraction!
“All he does is bow to foreigners.”
How hard is it to remember, ‘Don’t bow?’ It’s as easy to remember as, ‘Don’t pick your nose in public.’ Do you bow to people? (Or pick your nose in public?)
But then, we are dealing with a contrivance calling himself ‘Barack Obama.’
Re the ‘hate:’ What is about the truth do you hate?
Henry, seriously, I’ve been trying to guess this: are you in the fourth grade or the fifth grade?
Henry forgot the /sarc off symbol!
No he didn’t….that’s what makes Henry so much fun.
The newbies here on LI will figure him out soon 🙂
I’m schizogressive. It’s a new mental disorder. All of my own.
To be fair, a person uncomfortably breaking wind can very well appear to be bowing. Considering Barack Obama thinks nothing of picking his nose up to his knuckle on national television, it’s only fair to give him the benefit of the doubt.
View, if you have the stomach, the amazing, nearly obscene nose-picking incident:
Hillary Clinton also thinks nothing of picking her nose in public. But then, she’s usually had a few drinks beforehand:
They left out the part where he ate it.
I wonder if Obama would bow if he met the leader of the Cherokee nation.
Probably not…..too American for him.
If they’re the modern couch potatoes I need to get me a new couch.
When the “Leader of the Free World” is busy bowing to these foreign leaders, asking their forgiveness for the sins of America before his ascension to the “throne”, his back side is pointed directly to us. He is just inviting us to kiss his ass.
(Deepest apologies to those offended by my bad language – but anyone who has sons or daughters in the armed forces, has walked the grounds at Arlington, or a Civil War battlefield, or any other reminder of the heroic deeds performed on our behalf such that we can live in a free nation can only feel tears of rage welling up against this traitor to our Republic.)
This is far more than just a quadrennial election, folks. This man and his drones have our nation by the throat and he is choking the life out of us.
If we are not rid of him in November, I am afraid that there will be no United States come 2016. Those who scoff at such a notion might well be reminded that no one really believed that Rome would fall in their day, nor thought that the sun would ever set upon the British Empire, or that the U.S.S.R. would be there one day and gone the next.
Do not be so naive as to think that it could not happen here. It can. And it will if this man somehow manages to win reelection.
His entire four years in office have been that of destruction – destruction of our fiscal soundness through astronomical deficit and debt, through fiat money, through budgetary negligence. Honestly, the CEO of a lemonade stand would have been fired for not submitting a budget for three straight years, never mind the Democrats of the Senate along with the President. This stuff is deliberate, on purpose, meant to inflict maximum harm.
Sometimes the enemy we must defeat is the enemy within. That sometime is today. We as a nation have never faced a more dangerous enemy than Obama, the man who came to take our Constitution away from us.

A montage of his bowing to foreign leaders would have really hit home.
I thought that’s what the ad was going to be; a montage of all his bows.
There’s still time.
What always got me about that particular bow (besides to whom it was made and what they represent) was the expression on the Saudi King’s face.
He looks like he’s going OOOOOO. Now is he doing an “Oh My what a douchebag/sycophant/jackoff/kiss-ass” or is he doing a “OOhhh I wonder if he wants to dance/share some intimate moments?”
My nasty side thinks maybe Obama grabbed him somewhere other than his hand.
I couldn’t resist. A good parody on Obama bowing to the Chi Com leader:
Obama’s original “bow” to the Saudi tribal chieftain was actually a stoop to kiss the ring on his right hand – far worse than a mere bow. The bowing nonsense that followed appears to be theatrical cover, the way a child reenacts a prat-fall to make the original blunder appear “deliberate.”
If the Won is so hungry to stoop and kiss, hey! – I’ve got, er, never mind.
