    Should I feel stupid for not knowing what the comic is referencing by saying “While a British envoy seeks peace in our time” (Tony Blair? Gordon Brown?)and “An isolated Democracy is being pressured to cede territory in the name of ‘peace'” (Israel? Taiwan?)?

  2. Tom White says:

    You have to think back to pre-WWII England and Neville Chamberlain. The great appeaser. Capitulate to the evil bits of the world and they will like you.

    Obama’s position. Apologize. Appear weak.

    Did not work then. Will not work now.

    Do we not follow the protocols associated with the Queen of England and how we approach her out of respect? Is not our display of respect for the Crown no less than when our leaders respect other nations in the East when we visit them or leaders in the ME when we are guests within their borders? I have no doubt it is merely ceremonial and to make anything more of it is absurd. Its about ceremony NOT policy Tom. Even you should understand the difference. Maybe we should have ignored the ceremony/pagentry in Richmond when the Queen came to town in celebration of Jamestown anniversary as well and pay her no respect either.

  4. Tom White says:

    You or I would follow the protocols. Not heads of state. America bows to no one. Obama personally bows to all. It is a display of weakness.

    Do you think a Saudi King bows to a Japanese Emperor? Hell no!

    Obama bowed to both. And the left tried to deny the Saudi King bow.

    It is simply not done. The symbolism denotes weakness of State.

    Hillary, yes. Obama, no.

  5. Tom White says:

    President Bush did not bow down before the Queen. He is her equal.

    Ceremonial bows are NOT for heads of state. It denotes class. The lower class symbolically bows to the higher.

    It is a total embarrassment. Which is what Obama wants to do. Groveling.

    Remember the exchange when Obama bowed to the Saudi King?

    QUESTION: When the President met with King Abdullah, there was something that took place which I believe the White House explained was just the president being taller than the king. We took a look at the video, and it does appear that the president actually bowed to King Abdullah. Did he bow or didn’t he?

    GIBBS: No, I think he bent over with both, to shake — with both hands to shake his hand, so I don’t–

    QUESTION: Did he bow or didn’t he?

    GIBBS: No.

    What say you now?

    Robert Gibbs isn’t the brightest people, I’m sure you’re already aware of it. Talk about a poorer mouth piece to an administration…. But I’m going off-topic.

    Tom, if you visit an old, senile man in a nursing home, with no significant power that you could seemingly ignore, don’t you show some respect. In our culture, and other cultures, that respect is varying.

    That analogy might need to be adapted for King Abdullah, but the point is that we show respect to all in our personalities, but policy-wise, we don’t bow to anyone (excluding the trillions owed to China, the 42% of our imported oil that comes from OPEC which contains several frenemies, granting amnesty, etc)

    I don’t care how Obama greets foreign leaders, I care how is policies are towards these countries. If I’m a Business tycoon on an important business trip to secure a multi-million dollar deal with a Japanese counterpart, I think I might embark on some of their cultures to win the respect of the “counterpart”.

  7. Tom White says:

    Gibbs is absolutely an idiot. But the point is, the White House does not want Obama to be seen by Americans as bowing to a foreign dignitary. You only bow to those greater than you.

    The LA Times added:

    UPDATES: 12:22 p.m. A brief news video has been added below, showing the greeting in this photograph. Contrary to some claims, the video shows no reciprocal bow by the emperor, who traditionally bows to no one. And we’ve added a file photo from 2007 of Vice President Dick Cheney greeting the Japanese Emperor at the same residence in a different fashion.

    In addition, Michele Obama touched the Queen, a big no no.

    The Obama’s look like the Beverly Hillbillies to the world and they embarrass the country by doing stupid things like this.

    But if it were not for the LA Times, I doubt anyone on the left would know. CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, etc. – in other words, the Obama controlled media, did not put the embarrassing picture up.

    So, no, it is not something to be proud of. And please note, the Emperor DID NOT bow back. HE would not lower himself. He is the head of Japan.

    Too bad we have such a wimpy president that he wants to let the world watch as he cowers and kisses ass.


    Look at this link for a better understanding.

    Here’s your sign!

  8. Bigvinu says:

    Wait. So you WANT to obey British protocol of not touching the Queen, but DON’T want to obey the Japanese protocol of bowing to the emperor? Double-standard?

  9. Tom White says:

    You DON’T TOUCH foreign leaders. You shake hands as equals. Michele Obama acted like a ghetto queen with no breeding putting her hands all over the Queen. It would be just as wrong if the Queen put her hands all over an Obama. Although the Queen was bred better.


    These people are NOT friends. They are heads of state. It is not about protocol. Not for the leaders. They greet each other with a hand shake – or not. Period. No bowing. No rubbing the back of a Queen.

    Honestly, it shows that the Obama’s are VERY low class people. It also shows that he is an idiot because he has people that tell him this stuff.

    This is one of many down sides caused by Obama’s lack of experience.

    He just can’t get it right. And will not listen to those that know proper behavior.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
