    If you are using a falsehood in order to prove the point that you believe others are hypocrites, then you don't really want to know if Reagan bowing to the Queen of England is disgraceful, you merely want to smear others with whom you do not agree.

    If Reagan bowed to the Queen (and it doesn't appear that you have any evidence), then yes that was disgraceful. Traditionally, American presidents do not exhibit symbolic submissiveness or subservience to any foreign leader. This country was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and we bow to no-one. Mutual respect is fine, and a nod of respect and slight traditional bow on the part of both parties, along the lines of Japanese culture, is fine.

    The only thing he did not do is get on his knees for a full ultimate bow or a "za rei" but this was close.....



    When he did it to the saudi king he insulted Islam....


    When he did it in Japan he said "I'm your bitch"....
    I'm sure Japan is planning an attack now.

    Not the point... No one should strive to look a "bitch".... especially when you are representing me.

    As far as I can tell, yes it was made up. That being the case, I wouldn't vote in the poll.
    If I remember correctly, there was some kind of flack back during the Reagan years about Nancy Reagan courtseying to the queen, and it was considered a faux pas back then. That is why I have my doubts about the original question as the basis for this thread.

    I didn't vote either. I found the premise to be left wanting.

    Believe it or not, it's arrogant and obnoxious to tell everyone that you are better than they are.

    A truly confident man can handle humility. It's proof that you are grounded IMO.

    Going to another country and stating "I am beneath you".... is not humility.
