This is typical Obama. Now that he has received heat for the bows in the past, he will do it even more out of spite for his critics and his country. He’s a petty narcissist.
What a sorry-assed excuse for a POTUS!
This just shows how amateur this guy and his team is. Modern Chinese do not bow, unlike the Japanese. The appropriate greeting in Communist China is to shake hands. Perhaps to Obama, all Orientals look alike?
When you have no backbone this is inevitable. Give the man a break, he can’t help himself.
What is he doing, apologizing for USA sending the Flying Tigers to defend the Nationalist Government?
Obowma, what a puss.
In the “how low can he go” tour, this one rates about a 5!
This is Obama’s defense:
And he bowed to me on SNL!
He put the “puss” in pusillanimous.
He's going to look pretty stupid when he bows to Andrea Merkel or Stephen Harper.
Netanyahu? That should be rich.
All my coworkers have taken to bowing to each other in the office, and when our clients see it thay are cracking up. This is the kind of thing that gets under the skin of most people and our Dear Leader has fast become the laughingstock of his generation.
Considering that the Nationalist Government now occupies Taiwan, that’s not a bad guess.
He’s still doing that bow handshake thing simulateously, found onbly on Planet Obama. Maybe he should throw in a curtsey.
No matter that he is destroying the Presidency along with the rest of the United States.
He has no idea what he is doing or he knows exactly what he is doing ...no in between.
LOL! The boy president strikes again.
The American public is fed up with BO Plenty’s kowtowing to foreign potentates. In Asia especially, kowtowing is a sign of weakness and submission.
Right you are. We spent a couple months in China when my husband was there on a work assignment. I NEVER saw anyone bow!
And all he would have had to do is google Yahoo Answers to find out what the proper protocol in China is:
posted answer to question should I bow in China:
No don’t bow! You’ll come off looking either ignorant or condescending. Chinese people shake hands when meeting someone for the first time, or meeting an acquaintance. For special occasions like festives, they take their left hand and make it into a fist, the right palm grabs the left fist, this is the Chinese greeting (you see it in old kungfu movies).
But for most casual situations, a hand shake is sufficient, and friendly. And most chinese people love it when you ask them questions about their culture, chinese culture is often misunderstood by foreigners, most chinese are hospitable people who would invite you over for tea and chat

President Sock Puppet performs another trick.
Is he attempting to transform himself into a MINSTREL?
Stephen Harper is a better leader than Obama.
D’oh! I just noticed you posted the same cartoon first....
I think it would be hilarious if the Republicans all started bowing (on camera, of course) to Obumbles , Reid, & Pelosi — big, exaggerated bows with smirks on their faces.
I have been on the Zogby poll list for some years, and often one of the questions is "Are you ashamed of the President?" (especially prominent during the Bush years). For the first time, I recently answered "Yes" as Obama goes from being a fraud to being a buffoon. Hopefully this extreme bowing routine will catch on with the public and finish making a mockery of him.
233 YEARS! - ....since anyone from this great country bowed down to anyone outside our borders!
233 YEARS! - ....down the tubes!
233 YEARS!- .....since our people put their life on the line, and died, so that no one had to bown down to any foreigner!
233 YEARS! - ....down the tubes!
The never ending nightmare.
What I wouldn’t give to see a flying elbow drop worked in.
Pull head down, thrust knee up.
It could be seriously hypothesized that the man is mentally ill.
I would refer to him as President Step-n-FetchIt if he were white. But the racial aspect is too much to overcome.
The list, ping
“LOL! The boy president strikes again.”
I was thinking that he might courtsy next time round?
“Hes still doing that bow handshake thing simultaneously, found only on Planet Obama.”
LOL. Now that is funny.
OTOH, Sarah Palin would bow to no one.
