    Evidently you are not sure of it yourself.

    In japan bowing is a sign of respect to the other persons authority. world leaders acknowledging another leader a slight nod of the head or even a slight bow is enough. the bow is to match the other persons. the lower you bow it shows that you are beneath the station of the person you are addressing.

    obama didn't know what he was doing and his deep bow could have been seen as offensive if not highly ignorant.

    Ahh.. it's all the tea party's fault. You continue to illustrate the problem.

    My view is the actual reality: Reid, Bohener and Obama are all to blame. None can be the adult in the room.

    THAT is reality.

    Hard to believe since U.S. State protocol is based upon Navy customs and protocol which forbids any officer, sailor or Marine to ever bow to a foreign head of state.

    Nixon was a Lt. Cmdr. in the Navy during WW ll, recognized as the best poker player in the Pacific. I'm pretty sure naval officer were required to read U.S. Navy Customs and Traditions along with "Rocks and Shoals."

    You are Back pedaling. The country is focused on the humanitarian disaster at the southern border and the president flies to the region to... raise money. Our president has to be shamed into meeting for talks with the Governor of the state because our president is a partisan douche.

    You tried to defend the president by falsely claiming that the meeting was planned all along. It wasn't. The president is so focused on politics rather than leadership that he flew to a disaster site in order to attend a fundraiser.

    It still amazes me how quick Obama defenders are to point out that Obama behaves just like presidents they hate.

    if he was worth a damn and 'doing his job' he would be working with el presidente Nieto of mejico and this would never be a US border fiasco. It is mejico that is allowing the children of central America to access their borders. But again...Obama is such a ****ing joke it is highly unlikely that any world leaders would be willing to work with him on anything of substance.

    Back peddling!! The WH said from the beginning that the trip had three purposes. One was to meet Perry on the tarmac. Perry preferred a set down and Obama complied. As for fundraising, leave that alone, you only look stupid. Every president fundraises. The oppossition party ALWAYS thinks he's doing it at the wrong time. Both sides do this. There's a problem on our border, an old problem with a new twist to be sure. But if you're just learning about it this year, that's a problem, too! No president, congress or party has ever secured the border between Mexico and the United States. It is what it is.
