No Bowing for the Nigerian Dude.
President Obama what do you think of Rush
ROFLMAO You live for this stuff, don't you?
Lots of good and bad in the news everyday.
The media loves to prop up the bad.
I find a little humor here and there makes it all easier to take.
What's up with the getup?
The hat is his trademark, the rest is traditional.
Where was the rage of the nutjob right when bush was almost kissing that saudi prince and holding hands with him while strolling down a park with him?
Bush was disgusting and so is this a$s hole Obama, America is going down the drain, we are very slowly turning into a Third World Sh!t Dump.
Bush The Chimp Kissing Arabs and Obama Jug Ears bowing to leaders that hate us, America as we knew it is all gone.

We had that discussion .... you were under your rock back then.
Let us all hope the rock smothers him to death the next time he crawls under it....
American presidents have long bowed as a gesture of courtesy and respect to foreign leaders.
This is not unique to Obama, nor should it be controversial.
Actually, bowing usually does stir up the press no matter what president does it. But I agree, it's not unique to Obama.
Difference between him and others- Obama was lower than any others have been(so far, as produced with evidence)
Perhaps you can explain to us the ramifications of said "difference"?
Not playing your game Jack.
IOW, there aren't any, and this is all about reflexive criticism of Obama.
What criticism are you talking about- the ones vilifying him for bowing so low or the ones vilifying those who complained about how low he bowed?
The fact that statement makes absolutely no sense notwithstanding...
Inveighing against Obama for bowing is dumb. Presidents have been bowing to foreign leaders for decades. There are certainly more fertile grounds for criticism out there, and it's a bit hard to take people who whine about this seriously, given the fact that it's historically commonplace.
And before we argue in a circle and you trot out the "but he bowed lower, omgz0rs" line, I already asked you how that's a substantive difference and the attendant ramifications. You refused to answer, so that's on you.
You didn't answer my question.
