Who is handling our buffoon of a President? Now he's bowing to the communist Chinese too? I wish somebody would tell him to cut out the groveling already. This is embarrassing!
To what Asian leaders has Obama not bowed? Did he learn from watching too many Charlie Chan movies that it's appropriate to always bow upon greeting any Asian? I thought it might be Obama's clumsy ignorance and inexperience that made him think he should bow to royalty but, Hu Jintao of China is not royal that I know of. And Obama never bowed to Queen Elizabeth but, that's because she's white rather than because she's not a head of state.
If he's got any sense at all, he's leaning in to beg President Jintao to not call in our debt or change the world currency away from the dollar, and to please, please keep buying our bonds so he can continue to fork over billions to private businesses who are run, poorly, by his political friends.
I'll bet there is not much remaining of what little respect the world did have for the US, what with our self-inflicted recession that dragged the whole world down with us, and now with Obama prostrating himself, and the US by extension, embarrassingly and unnecessarily before various world leaders. What an amateur!
