No Americans bow to foreign heads of state, since this indicates that we submit to them: http://books.google.com/books?id=Ju1XvqoMookC&pg=PA697&lpg=PA697&am p;dq=protocol+bowing+Americans+meeting+foreign+monarch&source=bl&ot s=5GygELF-FT&sig=51ybqyGmwHAzO8pil6S6ws0-ikI&hl=en&ei=G9LUSbSmJ NbfnQe10eHzDg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2 .

I'm assuming when George W. Bush held hands with and actually kissed this very same man it was all peaches and cream with you?

Whatever.

I don't think he was bowing but was bending down to pick up the pen that fell out of his pocket! As you can see it looks like the people around him are bending down to assist him in said pen retrieval.

Oh lordy... You cant be serious, can you Bill? You think he is bowing to that guy? Look at the guy on the right, he is focused on something downward as well. I wonder if Patty isnt correct. Im sure you will correct any presumptions made if it turns out to be something else, right?

Another possibility is that he could be admiring his fancy footwear. Damn dude, where did you get those shoes? Do those come in a size 18?

Also, please explain what an "Authentic American" is.

Bush also referred to him as "your majesty" at the height of oil's runup, when trying to get them to increase production. Whatever indeed.

I can almost always count on you, OTF, to present a response that's bottom-of-the-barrel stupidity. You're giving Spacemonkey some serious competition.

A good rule of thumb: when the opposition resorts to name-calling, they've reached intellectual bankruptcy and have to resort to kindergarten playground techniques. To critique your reply in terms you can understand:

I will, if that's the case. I've done so in the past.

Nope. I don't recall hearing about this (which isn't to say it didn't happen, just that I missed it). But if that's the case, I think it was just as wrong.

I assume he held himself to kissing with no tongue involved

Really, Bill? When someone has to search for almost daily nit picking complaints about someone, how much respect should be shown to that person?
I've reduced the numbers of times I post here, so I don't know where you get the "almost daily". You make it sound as if I'm somehow accountable to you for what I might be doing outside the WP. BTW, the last time I initiated one (about Obama's use of the teleprompter), the responses almost broke my Stupid-o-Meter. I get enough entertainment reading the endless quibbling and name-calling here that I skim the other resources regarding Obama. I don't think very much of him, true, but I don't search for nit-picking complaints -- only the serious ones.
quote:
With all the crap that Obama has inherited, you would think you could do better than jump to a conclusion over a still photo that could mean many different things.
Obama, and liberals in general, are running out of time to fall back on the excuse of what he inherited. His first 100 days are looking less and less impressive, and his childish approaches to running a country are unnerving.

Spending to get out of debt is stupid. The bailouts (whether from Obama or Bush) are stupid ways of rewarding stupid behavior, and they're unconstitutional. Since both swore to uphold the CotUS (Article II, Section 1, Clause 8 says, "I do solemnly swear [or affirm] that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.") the bailouts shouldn't even have been considered. Both violated this oath, I would think.
quote:
But when your agenda is to defame the President for any possible reason, you don't need to know what the photo may actually represent.
My "agenda is to defame for any possible reason"? That's ignorant at best, blind at worst. As I said to ST, if I'm wrong about the context of the photo, I'll admit it.

By the way, I've seen more, more consistent, and more vicious, efforts in this forum to defame Bush even after his term is up. Whining about my comments regarding a photo shows a staggering level of hypocrisy on your part.
quote:
You can just jump to a conclusion and play Mr. High And Mighty when you post it. Not too arrogant, right? Yeah, you poor persecuted little boy.
If you insist on looking like a kindergartener by calling me names, would you please take the time to come up with some that are imaginative, original, or witty? These are just plain boring.

There is a video up at a conservative site that clearly shows him bowing. Interesting. I dont think this was any kind of "Im your servant" bullshiat, but more likely some other diplomatic thing. After watching Bush kiss this man and walk hand in hand with him, I dont see what people are upset about.

Oh for God's sake!!! You want embarrassing? This post is embarrassing!!! And your confusion with submission and respect is really embarrassing (in a showing-your-dense-side kind of way). Must be a slow news week if you are dipping this deeply into the 'oh no Obama' barrel.
