    The section of the Constitution you posted says that the President will be impeached or removed from office if he commits treason. That does not prove that bowing is a treasonous act. Again, this is yet another simple concept you fail to grasp. PLEASE PROVE THAT BOWING TO A FOREIGN LEADER IS A TREASONOUS ACT.

    No bow there.

    Me just popping in to ask..

    "WHO ****ING CARES IF HE BOWED JESUS ****ING CHRIST"

    k, as you were arguing over silly unimportant bull****.
    "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.

    Protocol is not unimportant, and the rule that American Presidents do not bow to foreign monarchs dates back to our foundation when we declared that all men were created equal. Individual Americans might bow before a monarch, but never our Head of State.

    Of course, in this case he is bowing to a monarch who is bowing to him in return. But this is a point of American honor that previous incidents have indicated that our President does not understand.

    I am not the least bit concerned with the President kissing foreign dignitaries. Or anyone else, for that matter.

    Nor am I concerned with Ambassadors bowing to monarchs, which is, as I believe, standard practice. As far as I know, Heads of State do not bow before others even when visiting them in their own courts-- with the exception of those cultures in which bowing is practiced between equals.

    So why do you have a problem with Obama bowing?

    There's also a notable difference between kissing a man's cheek and kissing his ring.

    True but I don't think Obama did that did he?
