Obama

Our president Barack Obama has caught a lot of shit recently for bowing to Japanese Emperor Akihito recently while on tour in Asia.

I don’t know why President Obama thought that was appropriate. Maybe he thought it would play well in Japan. But it’s not appropriate for an American president to bow to a foreign one,” said conservative pundit William Kristol speaking on the Fox News Sunday program, adding that the gesture bespoke a United States that has become weak and overly-deferential under Obama…

“We don’t defer to emperors. We don’t defer to kings or emperors, [said conservative voice Bill Bennett].

The gesture appears to have touched a particularly raw nerve among Obama critics who said the president has hastened America’s decline as a world superpower by being too apologetic and too deferential in his dealings with other world leaders.”

Please. Our world is on fire. The economy looks like a ravaged anus, unemployment is hitting record highs, we have wars on two fronts, and now we decide to shit our pants? President Obama bowed out of being polite and respectful. Remember when George W. Bush sent your son/daughter/husband/wife/father/mother to Iraq and got them killed for an unjust cause? That pissed you off, right? That didn’t make America look weak, no. It made us look idiotic warmongers. As long as people are scared, right? Japan took TWO ATOMIC BOMBS from us. I think we owe them a bow.
