Bowing is fine. What needs to be understood is the angle to which the person bows at is the sign of how powerfull they are. The emporer would only show a slight tilt where as the common folk a large almost 90 deg bow is the way of showing respect to the leader.



US president was photographed bending to nearly a 90 degree angle when he greeted the relatively diminutive Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko at the Imperial Palace on Saturday

www.telegraph.co.uk...

When he did this it was though he was saying "Im powerless" almost like an admittance of being a puppet on strings and his supposed power being illusory. If this is no mistake, is he sending a message about the truth being that POTUS does not run the country?



This was claimed by the white house to be a sign of respect, but the emporer found it "disgracefull" apparently.

Is it really such a big deal?

What is it with the Americans. Why cant they behave and show respect like every one else. Americans are no more human than any one else. Not even the president.

When Obama went to China they treated him like dirt. Even the liberal New York Times said it:


Obama’s Pacific Trip Encounters Rough Waters

So it is no wonder that on the last day of the toughest part of his trip — the China part — Mr. Obama took a hike: a brisk, bracing 30-minute climb up the Great Wall. Around 3:30 Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Obama’s mile-long motorcade arrived at the Badaling section of the Great Wall, which snakes over jagged, rocky mountains.

Visitors to that touristy section of the wall generally encounter a cacophonous melee of vendors, but on this day, the place was like a ghost town, courtesy of the Chinese authorities who had shut it down. (The same thing happened Tuesday when Mr. Obama sped through an empty-but-for-his-entourage Forbidden City.)

Still, for an American president who has tried to make openness a hallmark of his public persona, it was a departure, made more stark since Chinese authorities largely hijacked Mr. Obama’s one other attempt at a give and take with Chinese students, a town hall meeting in Shanghai, by stuffing the auditorium with young Communist Party aspirants.

What has Obama's weakness given us? NOTHING!!

If they don't respect you and they see you as weak, they will not give you anything.

When Obama went to China, they showed him no respect and boxed him in like a little child.

and queue the news:



Obama, China's Hu press for strong words on Iran
(AP) – 7 hours ago

WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao (hoo jin-tow) are instructing their diplomats to work on potential sanctions to make clear to Iran the cost of continued nuclear defiance.

The two leaders met on the sidelines of a U.S.-hosted summit on nuclear proliferation Monday.

White House national security aide Jeff Bader sought to find common ground at their hour-long meeting. Bader said the Chinese were "prepared to work with us."

He called it another sign of international unity on the issue.


Wow, it really sucks when your hatefest for Obama fails on every single front...but hey, keep it up...maybe you can decide to hate him for his choice in shoes?

HANDSHAKE: A Western Culture to show respect

BOWING: An Eastern Culture to show respect

So, you are asking these two to do what? No bowing and no handshake?

From our point of views these two are showing Mutual-respects to each other regardless of the Cultural differences.

No, shake the chinese leader's hand - like an equal.



Humbleness is a virtue, and bowing a chinese traditional greeting.


Then in the picture, why is hu not bowing, but appears to be laughing instead?



If you want to hate on Obama at least find something better than this. Whats next, a thread about Obama's pimp limp.


Or perhaps you could find something more positive to defend obama for.

And the asian leader in the picture you posted is laughing at obama, as well.

A thread about the President bowing to a Chinese dude has gone on for over 70 posts. I'd bet a dollar it will hit 150 or more. Half the replies are literally no more substantive than just saying "OMG HE BOWED IS HE GHEY OR SUMTHIN ROFL I CAN HAZ BIRTH CERTIFICATE NOW." Please archive this thread. Chisel it into stone. Bury that stone in a time capsule. When future historians argue about why the American Empire collapsed, they can dig it up and smack themselves on the fore. and say "Duh."

Anyone who sees bowing as weak instead of confident respect has some serious self-confidence issues themselves.


Come off it all of you internet tough guys...if you had any confidence in yourself...you would know that you can show respect to a host and bow to them without showing any sign of weakness.

Apparently...Obama has confidence in himself...maybe you should take a lesson from him.

100 bucks, says When Gas goes up to 4 dollars again... Nobody is gonna blame Obama,
but everybody blamed G.W. and so what Bush was holding hands with the Iron Sheik.

I am really thinking someone got pregnant from this little rendezvous

Maybe if Obama give a reach around to Kim Jung he'll regain his sack and garner some neocon love.
