TOKYO (AP) The voice was slightly halting, childlike. "Welcome to Miraikan, Mr. President, it is a pleasure to meet you."
President Barack Obama bowed, looking delighted.
His greeter, after all, was a 55-inch-tall, give or take, humanoid robot with the look of a diminutive Star Wars storm trooper.
"It's nice to meet you, too," Obama said, pausing to watch the robot, named ASIMO, perform during a tour of the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.
During his visit to Tokyo, President Obama had a chance to meet ASIMO, a Japanese humanoid robot. ASIMO, an acronym for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, exchanged bows with the president before demonstrating that it could kick a soccer ball. "How about that, that was pretty impressive," Obama marveled after the demonstration. Later, during a meeting with students Obama mentioned his meeting with ASIMO. We saw some truly amazing robots -- although I have to say the robots were a little scary, he said. They were too lifelike. They were amaz

Well, Obama is a socialist robot, so birds of a feather...
One mindless robot communicating with ANOTHER MINDLESS ROBOT!!
Why not? The robot would make a better POTUS.
I realize he was just light-heartedly clowning around, but stop it. Be an adult for 15 minutes a year minimum.
He can kick a ball.
He can read a teleprompter.
He was 'born' in a foreign country.
Hell, his teleprompter DOES make a better president.
(On the other hand, we only “think” that it is Valarie Jarrett who is programming his teleprompter. Can’t be Putin. Obama’s administration is making too many mistakes for it to be run by anything connected with the KGB.)
It’s Japan. Bowing is the custom. Now, as long as the robot bowed deeper than Obama, no biggie.
Tyrant: "I bow to you who have more documentation than I do."
Depends on his bow. A normal bow is a sign of respect and peace. However, Obama’s recent bows have mostly all been the submissive kind (bowing too low). He’s either an idiot, has the worst PR team in the history of American Presidents, or both.
I’m guessing it’s both.
“I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords”
Speaking of robots:
Guy goes into a bar, theres a robot bartender. The robot says, What will you have? The guy says, Martini. The robot brings back the best martini ever and says to the man, Whats your IQ? The guy says,168. The robot then proceeds to talk about physics, space exploration and medical technology.
The guy leaves, but he is curious, so he goes back into the bar. The robot bartender says, What will you have? The guy says, Martini. Again, the robot makes a great martini, gives it to the man and says, Whats your IQ? The guy says, 100. The robot then starts to talk about Nascar, Budweiser and John Deere tractors.
The guy leaves, but finds it very interesting, so he thinks he will try it one more time. He goes back into the bar. The robot says, What will you have? The guy says, Martini, and the robot brings him another great martini. The robot then says, Whats your IQ? The guy says, Uh, about 50. The robot leans in real close and says, So, you people still happy you voted for Obama?
Ah, so sorry, techical difficulty.
I realize 0 deserves our respect as president but there is a spirit of respect where he should respect his country also.
The President can go with customs, so can we. But it is our custom not to have our leader bow to anyone.
But 'bowing' is done as a sign of respect, to OTHER HUMANS. Not to cows or robots.
I have been looking at photos of ASIMO and no one else ever bows to him.
Actually, I don't think obama is 'bowing' to ASIMO. It's just that he had to lean 'down' due to a difference in size. Similar to this.
well, for once little barry bastard boy bows to his betters.
I imagine he’s spent a significant portion of his life bent over.
you guys don’t realize that it’s ingrained in his upbringing to bow to everyone. just as it is to walk with his hands behind his back while talking to someone.
this is typical for anyone that grew up in a muslim country
he’s not American. at least by his customs and habits.
hell, I’d have a tough time calling him a man. a male, probably. a man? very tough call
Obama would bow to a Japanese toilet.
the only people he won’t bow to is the American people
(and he owes us a big one)
This remind me that old movie Johnny Sokko and flying Robot remember that series came out in 1970s LOL!
'A Miraikan' robot AMABO bows to counterpart ASIMO during Japanese visit.
