Are you sure he isn't just picking something up, or looking at a hot ass, like the last time an Obama gaffe picture came up? :p
This is a president whose tacky idea of diplomacy is exemplified by a state gift of a DVD movie set to a foreign leader (our oldest and most trusted world ally)! Obama should just staple a paper to the back of his jacket saying "idiot"....

Weasel Zippers phrases the issue best:

Why The Hell Would Obama Bow To Tampa Mayor?

Yea, he embarrasses the country every day, which is why he is the most like US president around the world in about, 8ish years?

The WORLD likes Obama, get the hell over it man.

Should I grab a picture of Georgey Boy holding hands with foreign leaders like they're lovers? These things don't ****ing matter as much as you'd like the rest of us to believe. :rolleyes:

So because "the world" likes him better than one other guy we should be okay with everything he does?

I guess he should run for President of the WORLD then. Besides, global opinion of the man has dipped pretty sharply in the past few months (though not as quickly as "local" opinion has).

He did it with more than one?

WTF are you talking about? Where do I even come close to hinting that? Do you really think there are people stupid enough to suggest such a thing?

If you have a problem with the man just say it, but to suggest I think such a downright stupid idea is beyond me. Don't put words in my mouth, especially ones that anyone who has any clue who I am would find ridiculous.

Why does Obama feel that he needs to bow to anyone remotely oriental? Was there a teleprompter malfunction and he didn't know what to do? Or was he just looking at his shoes gain?

Who gives a s***? What is wrong with you people?

What's next, an "Obama breathes the wrong way" thread? :rolleyes:

Go get a hobby, for god's sake. :mad:

BREAKING: Obama prefers his toilet paper hung in the overhand fashion on the roll. Why does he hate America?

You wrote, "Yea, he embarrasses the country every day, which is why he is the most like (sic) US president around the world in about, 8ish years?"

As there has only been one other president of the U.S. in the last "8ish" years, your readers can only assume you are comparing him to that one other president.

Do you really think there are people stupid enough to suggest such a thing?.
I do. I just quoted one of them three times.

If you're going to get bent out of shape at least do it over the correct part of the sentence.

This is pathetic.

Who cares?

Why is he bowing?
Europeans can bow too:

Wiki said:
In European cultures — aside from bows done by performers on stage, such as at the curtain call — bowing is an exclusively male practice, and females instead perform a related gesture called a "curtsey" or "curtsy." The depth of the bow is related to the degree of respect or gratitude. In European courtly circles, males were expected to "bow and scrape" (hence the term "bowing and scraping" for what appears to be excessive ceremony). "Scraping" refers to the drawing back of the right leg as one bows, such that the right foot scrapes the floor or earth. Typically, while executing such a bow, the man's left hand is pressed horizontally across the abdomen while the right is held out from the body.
