I do have to say that Obama needs to fire his Japanese relations cultural advisor tho because you are not supposed to shake hand while you bow lol. But all in all He did show an attempt of respect, even if is was in a funny way.

What is wrong with an American president showing respect to other leaders? Don't get me wrong. I love my country. I just don't see what all the fuss is about. "Wow, he bowed in Japan! OMG! Japan owns teh U.S. now!" Don't we have enough real problems in this country right now without you Glenn Beck fans making crap up to cry about?
The Emperor in fact could have in fact had him decapitated for the insult on the spot and the only legal recourse would have been declaring war on Japan. The world is not actually one great big Wal-Mart people.

Seriously showing respect to someone, anyone as a matter of fact could also be taken in bad light is quiet disturbing. What a sad article.
