Obama Doesn't Know That This Country Was Created Specifically Because WE HATE ROYALTY!
From the LA Times (even they seem to get this one):
Politics and commentary, coast to coast, from the Los Angeles TimesNovember 14, 2009 | 3:38 am
How low will the new American president go for the world's royalty?
This photo will get Democrat President Obama a lot of approving nods in Japan this weekend, especially among the older generation of Japanese who still pay attention to the royal family living in its downtown castle. Very low bows like this are a sign of great respect and deference for a superior.
To some in the United States, however, an upright handshake might have looked better. Remember Michelle Obama casually patting Britain's Queen Elizabeth on the back during their Buckingham Palace visit? America's royalty tends to make movies and get bad reviews and lots of money as a sign of respect.
Obama could receive some frowns back home as he did for his not-quite-this-low-or-maybe-about-the-same-bow to the Saudi king not so long ago.
I also like Reliapundit's reaction to this story:
FOR BOWING DOWN TO ANOTHER FOREIGN KING, OBAMA HAS ONCE AGAIN PROVEN HE IS UNFIT FOR OFFICE AND NEEDS TO BE EFFIN IMPEACHED
IT NOT JUST THIS BOW OR THE BOW TO KING ABDULLAH.
IT'S THE FACT THAT OBAMA IS ALWAYS GOING OUT OF HIS WAY TO GIVE AID AND SUCCOR TO OUR FOES:
LIKE BY GIVING KSM A TRIAL IN NYC - IN WHICH AL QAEDA CAN GLEAN ALL SORTS OF INTEL'...
A TRIAL WHICH WILL MAKE OR INTEL' AGENTS AND TROOPS SHUDDER AT THE MERE POSSIBILITY OF EVER CAPTURING AN ENEMY COMBATANT (BECAUSE IT TUNES THE BATTLEFIELD INTO A "CSI CRIME SCENE" AND MEANS THE "ARRESTING SOLDIER" KNOWS THAT DURING A TRIAL HIS NAME WILL BE MADE KNOWN TO THE ENEMY IN A YEAR OR 2 OR 3 OR 4).
MEANWHILE, OBAMA IS BLOCKING A CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION INTO HASAN.
OBAMA IS PROTECTING THE ENEMY.
OBAMA SHOULD BE IMPEACHED, CONVICTED AND REMOVED FROM OFFICE.
EMPHASIS ON REMOVED FROM OFFICE.
