    I guess to people that have no Pride in America, this is how it should be...

    Obama's a disgrace, and won't get a second term. Americans want a leader, not a spineless appeaser.
    America is rude?

    Yes, that might be true.

    Anyone remember when Jimmy Carter kiss the Queen Mother? That was a big faux paus and she was highly offended.

    Respect would be to treat the Emperor as an equal, not a superior.

    But these deeper meanings are too deep for you I guess.
    If this was Europe, you would most likely be right, but this is asia, and an ally to boot. There is no superiority with bowing, and we gain in respect from them when we do.

    Hell, the emporer held his hand out first, showing that he didn't even expect him to bow. If he knew, the emporer would have bowed himself, showing equality.

    Yes, that's right, he bows, to kings and emperors. The man disgraces the office of the President, and our country.
    You should not start threads about such trivial crap as this. Seriously, save it for making threads about Michele Obama's shoes or something that matters a bit more than this.

    Showing respect to a foreign leader is a disgrace to our country? I think partisan hacks willing to jump down the throat of the President for trivial bull**** are a disgrace to our country.

    He should have taken a dump on his carpet just to remind him who's boss.

    You are aware that in many countries people bow to each other. Usually the younger person bows down a littler farther than the older person bowing. This is one of the things they taught us in Korea when I was stationed over there.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    No Mr. V doesn't. He thinks that Obama was slowly becoming Akihito's servant.
