    LOL...the right-wingers are so desperate its hilarious. So, bowing (which is a customary greeting in many countries of the world) is bad.....but This is ok?

    So, I stand corrected.

    I dont lean down to speak to shorter people either.

    Some of us love excuses I suppose.

    Why are people transposing two entirely different threads? This thread is about Obama comparing Mandela to Gandhi, MLK and Lincoln. Same event, different freakin subject.

    Some of us love lying too.

    I can't count the number of times I've been in a crowded area and leaned in closer so the person I was talking with could hear me.

    I'ts very clear you refuse to accept any alternative other than Obama was bowing down.

    Which might I add, is already incorrect as you don't have physical contact in a bow.

    I think superimpose would be the correct term.

    Mandela on Castro and the Cuban revolution:

    “From its earliest days, the Cuban Revolution has also been a source of
    inspiration to all freedom-loving people. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of the vicious imperialist-orquestrated campaign to destroy the impressive gain made in the Cuban Revolution. … Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro.”

    Because you mentioned the manufactured outrage, and that's the part I read first.

    Eh....both are displays of desperation...so they are somewhat related.
