    His bowing to the keeper of the most Holy Islamic shrine, the King of Saudi Arabia, was another thing. But, then, Obama did say he is of the Muslim faith, though the reporter convinced him to change that to saying Christian faith.

    No problem with him shaking hands with Castro.
    Um, not really.

    'Ya know, Obama needs to be impeached for the crap he is taking on the Constitution, but the more Republicans make themselves irrelevant with stupid crap like this, the less hopeful I am that we will ever see it happen.

    Nixon had the Ceaucescau's at the White House for a state dinner for chrissakes... (and they stole the silverware)

    Everyone has been watching too many macho blow-em up movies. In the real world, there is diplomacy and professionalism. He shook his hand, BFD. The Obama Derangement Syndrome is equal to the stupidity of the Bush Derangement Syndrome.

    Angry folk need a constant diet of this kind of twaddle to get through their day.

    I don't think you understand that most people in the world have moved beyond 3rd grader playground tactics. "Acting tough" is the camouflage of the weak and terrified. I see them in bars, on tv, and on this forum.

    As opposed to acting weak, which Obama seems to think is working out.

    If you think that is acting weak you may have some insecurity issues.
