First, came the issue of where is the birth certificate of Barack Obama and can he prove that he really is an American, and now comes conclusive evidence that this man who supposedly represents the United States of America is nothing more than a toady for appeasement of terrorists. Fox News and the right wing media is up in arms because the president of the United States bowed from the waist when being introduced to the Emperor of Japan!! Bill Bennett thundered, ‘we don’t defer to emperor. We don’t defer to kings or emperors.” William Kristol charged, “I’ll bet if you look at pictures of world leaders over 20 years meeting the emperor of Japan, they don’t bow.” Some conservative pundits showed a picture of Dick Cheney extending a hand to the emperor.
It is now clear that any problems the United States has in the world is due to an American president who bows to kings. That is the cause of the decline in America’s prestige, it is not due to incompetent policies in Iraq or Afghanistan, it all stems from bowing. What kind of pansy do we have an president? Huh? Where are the tough minded leaders like George Bush and Dick Cheney who can cause over 4,000 young Americans to die? Please bring back leaders who shake hands and let’s impeach this lilly livered character who doesn’t know how to represent America? Up with the handshake, down with the bow? Or, should I say, up with the bow and down with the handshake?
