    Re: Was it disgraceful when Reagan bowed to Queen Elizabeth?

    Still no legitimate answers that explain why the **** something Reagan did probably 20 ****ing years ago should even bother being discussed?

    What is the point of this ignorant thread exactly?
    "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.

    It's pretty much just a GOTCHA and mud-slinging thread, which is pretty typical on most political discussion forums in my experience.

    I believe it is an attempt to try to catch republicans being hypocrites by seeing if they had a problem with Obama doing something but not Reagan practically doing the same thing or to try to catch democrats being hypocrites if they didn't have a problem with Obama doing something but had a problem with Reagan practically doing the same thing.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Who the **** cares if Obama bowed to a Japanese guy.

    Isn't that part of Japanese culture?

    It's to point out that partisans on both sides are too busy bickering to realize and understand the realities of diplomacy. You treat your friends with respect and your enemies with guardedness.

    100% dead on the money.

    I also have mentioned Bush HW bowing as well. But seeing how many Republicans here worship Reagan like a God, he's better off as an example to highlight sheer unending hypocrisy.

    I have said something similar to that on a couple different post on this and another thread.

    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.
    Apparently neither you nor Rev have heard of Google:

    AFP: ‘Outrage’ in Washington over Obama’s Japan bow | Raw Story

    Apparently the democrats went ape**** over his bowing too.

    Still, not surprised that Rev choose to ignore the actual issue here.

    I'm being the hack.....by not caring at all who bows to whom and treating them the same? I guess you think someone who gives passes to their party for engaging in a behavior they condemn the other party for not hacks.

    Yeah....

    But your side is not engaging in partisan hackery when it ignores how past presidents including Reagan and Bush HW bowed to foreign heads of state?

    And I know how you treat evidence.

    I provide a story. You want a picture. I provide a picture you claim it's photoshopped and want a video. So on and so forth until you want a notarized statement by Reagan himself with a witness statement signed by GOD. I know how you operate and it's downright shameful. I'm not playing your game.

    Point still is, if you refuse to condemn Reagan or Bush or any Republican president for bowing when you criticize a Democrat president for doing the same behavior, you are a hack.

    Keep posting Rev. And look at my signature. If you don't like hypocrisy being pointed out, maybe you should make an effort to tell those who are extreme hypocrites to shutup?

    Come to think of it, I'm not sure why I bother. Most people here know who is an uber-partisan hack. While the poll is useful in highlighting who is by showing who didn't vote, it's not hard for the average user to figure out who has a problem with consistency.
