    You are close but no cigar. Bowing has many functions in one. It expresses the feeling of respect, thanking, apologizing, greeting, and so on. It's a convenient and important custom for you to learn. You can bow, when you say, "Thank you", "Sorry", "Hello", "Good bye", "Congratulations", "Excuse me", "Good night", "Good Morning", and more.

    He who bows lowest wins, because the lower the bow the more respect it shows.
    I hope this idiot Obama keeps his mouth shut about the hisrory of WWII because he's shown he has no knowledge of the facts.

    Except to point out we had this discussion before. And Mr.V lost then and were made a mockery as well.

    Thanks for again showing have no problem defending partisan hackery here.

    Previous Presidents bowed to foreign leaders in the past, including Republicans. The painfully obvious ulterior motive you have for this is you just don't like Obama so you'll find the pettiest, stupidest, lamest, and most partisan bull**** argument you can find to attack him on while deliberately ignoring how president presidents, including your "Can Do Nothing Wrong Republicans" did the same acts.

    You, like Mr. V, need to grow up.

    At least you're honest about not giving a **** about being honest and consistent.

    The really pathetic thing is he did the exactly same thing before. Didn't learn his lesson.

    Yes, that's right, he bows, to kings and emperors. The man disgraces the office of the President, and our country.
    The Saudi King? I agree he's an ass-kisser. But no more than Dubya for kissing Rev. Moon's ass.

    I think this shows a great deal of humility on the part of the president, he is black you know. Some people forget that.

    He should have had Hillary bow for him.

    How about Bush for kissing the ass of a Japanese PM?
    Or Clinton for the same thing?
    Or Reagan for kissing the ass of the Queen of England?

    Do rationally people give a ****? No. Why? Because they are rational.

    Now, Dubya going to the Saudi King to beg him to drop oil prices...that's far more of an issue of ass kissing then bowing.

    How low can he really go?

    The mainstream media won't show you this:



    Obama doing the limbo.

    They definetly won't tell you he's cheating either.
