    Bush Daddy bowed deeply to Hirohito's casket upon the occasion of his funeral, shortly after Bush Daddy became Pres.


    Another winger non-issue. Kind of getting predictable.

    See, I can be a partisan hack too.
    Like me....
    Who called his stimulus a failed act?
    Who bashed him on the same reckless spending as Bush?
    Who calls him repetitively a Bush Clone?

    Does Obama deserve criticism? You betcha. Is this one of the things worth talking about? No.

    If you think that what Obama did was unacceptable, then you should have no problem voting that Reagan's bowing to the Queen of England was unacceptable.

    Interesting how the "Bash Obama on the Pettiest of things" crowed has 100% entirely refused to vote.

    If it was really about the bowing, then people like Mr.V would be upset at past presidents including two Republican bowing to foreign heads of state. But clearly, it's not about the bowing. It's just a pathetic attempt to mask hate. We get you don't like Obama. Just act like an adult and find something not exceptionally petty to rant about.

    The person who posted this thread has to be at least 95 years old. I didn't know people cared about stuff like this since the Victorian age.

    OK, I understand a president bowing to someone in a country where it's like a handshake. But I cannot excuse the VP for bowing to Jon Stewart. In New York! Hello! It's not like bowing is a normal custom in New York. Nor is Jon Stewart Japanese. Totally unacceptable. The VP is showing his inferiority to a comedy TV show host! This is inconceivable!

    Thank you for the explanation.....THE NATIONAL ANTHEM.
    As we all know, from standing for the Star Spangled Banner during ball games, no one but the military salutes the national anthem. It is not customary. We take our hats off and stand in respect, we do not put our hands over our heart. Excuse me for not noticing this sooner.
    Modern custom does not require a hand over the heart, said Anne Garside, director of communication for the Maryland Historical Society, home of the original manuscript of The Star-Spangled Banner.

    "I think the bottom line is that you show respect with your demeanor," she said. "Whether you put your hand over your heart, hold your hat at shoulder level or waist level, is really in this day and age irrelevant."
    Barack Obama didn't hold his hand over his heart during the U.S. national anthem - TRUE - De-fact-o.com - Untangling The Web One Fact At A Time

    He should have pissed on Hirohito's casket, instead.

    To date, no member of the Japanese Emperial Army, nor the Emperial Navy has admitted any wrong doing, during WW2.

    The members of the Army and Navy weren't doing wrong, they were following orders.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
