    Re: How low will he go? Obama gives Japan's Emperor Akihito a wow bow

    what is this thread about? Obama bowed and the Emperor shook his hands both things are equivalent to the same action. No one is saying Japans Emperor is weak for shaking hands I find this thread to be comical. Because our president no matter who it is doesnt control the world. Therefore you present yourself as equal and not superior. Superiority complexes start wars for no reason with no plans to achieve victory.

    Thought,
    Mr. V made one false assumption, then he tried to defend his position, and the Forum Feel Giddy Committee came out of nowhere and slammed him.

    Didn't we have a discussion about this where you (or rev) were thoroughly humiliated and once again shown to be extreme partisan hacks?

    Here it is:
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/us-pol...der-wtf-2.html

    Bush bowed to Koizumi. Did most people care? No. Clinton bowed to Obuchi. Did rational people care? No.

    It's this kind of behavior that gets your 100% accurately labeled a hyperpartisan hack job.

    Clearly, you've never been to Japan, much less out of the country.

    Grow up for a change.
    Personal attacks, looks like you have nothing to say that defensible on the topic. The Rev isn't even here to give you a lollipop.

    Consensus of other thread: a bow in Japanese culture is like a handshake in ours. This has been blown out of proportions.

    This is just left and right nonsense, bush goes through the wrong door, liberals post the picture, and all lol. Obama bows to the king and emperor, and the far right posts the pictures and lol.

    We have much bigger fish to fry in both parties, like how they are destroying the wealth of this country, all while spending trillions of dollars they don't have. Or how they are attempting to destroy our fragile free market system, and kill our capitalist system, a system that has been the envy of the world. still another worry, now they want to take over our health system, controlling more and more of our daily lives.

    we have real problems people......

    No yet, but don't you worry. We'll have this blown out really good soon. He didn't keep his eye on the emporer either, the dope.

    Re: How low will he go? Obama gives Japan's Emperor Akihito a wow bow

    Would you rather he doesn't bow to Akihito, and end up insulting one of our closest allies? Keep in mind a bow is just a form of greeting in Japan.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    What he wants is an excuse to whine. Facts and realities are not going to get in the way of that.
