President Obama Bowing Again? Really?

You got it folks.  Your Chief Executive was at it once again today bowing to his betters.  At a gathering of world leaders at the Nuclear Security Summit President Barack Obama greeted Chinese President Hu Jintao with a hearty “I sure love this view of your loafers” and once again chipped away at the prestige and power of the office he holds.  The President is making quite the habit of these little transgressions – although I doubt he sees them as such.  He undoubtedly believes that taking such a “posture” makes him appear open-minded, enlightened, a renaissance man if you will; above the fold and humble even in his high office.  Ridiculous! (PHOTO VIA DRUDGE)

The true ridiculousness of this little trend is that when he was caught the first time (when he bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia), the administration adamantly denied the Presidential bow and offered up a myriad of explanations for what the President was doing hunched over at the waist.  If it was deniable behavior then, what the hell is it now?

    You know, there is nothing wrong with our President showing respect to the leaders of other countries, but I really do not understand why he has to do that by bowing. I know Obama seems to think he has to apologize for America’s recent transgressions, but this is carrying it a bit too far.

      Even if he believes that this is an appropriate gesture – which it is not. Other world leaders don’t behave in this manner. Could he simply show some respect for the men that held his office before him – who abstained from such behavior and maybe just maybe show a little respect for the office he holds?
