OBAMA BOWS TO JAPANESE EMPEROR

TOKYO – President Obama bowed to Japan’s Emperor Akihito, much to the dismay of America’s Republicans!
President Barack Obama is on a week-long tour of Asia, meeting with national leaders and discussing international policies. He spent Saturday meeting with Japan’s Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko.
Upon arriving at a private lunch with the couple at the Imperial Palace, Obama did what some are considering the unthinkable: bow.

Obama critics are up in arms over the gesture, with descriptions ranging from “embarrassing” to “treasonous.”
There seem to be two common criticisms,  one being that Obama was displaying fealty to a foreign royalty, which goes against the foundation of America. The other opinion is that Obama lacks a general understanding of customs in other countries.
This is partially due to an earlier bow this year to Saudi King Abdullah.
However, others have come to Obama’s defense, saying that Obama had simply been observing protocol. “I think that those who try to politicise those things are just way, way, way off base,” said a senior administration official.
A Republican student group put together a video of other officials greeting the Emperor from the past three years:

  1. I was thinking that, if people wanted to be respected by others and not seen as bully`s, they should respective other people with their customs as well, and demostrate it. If that is a sign of weakness, i`m going to Bed.
