President Bows Again
The President of the United States is not supposed to bow to foreign potentates. Earlier this year the supporters of our ill prepared naive president defended him when he bowed to the Saudi king and claimed he wasn't really bowing. Well, yesterday he bowed again this time to Japanese Emperor Akihito.
We need a president who understands that the United States does not bow to other countries. When the president bows it is as if our nation is bowing. There is a reason our Navy has a standing order that we do not dip our flag first when passing the ship of another nation. We will dip the flag in response, but never initiate to a foreign flagged ship and we don't even return the dip if from a nation we don't formally recognize.
These acts are just further evidence that Obama's lack of understanding of United States history and culture play a key role in his failures to properly represent our interests.
