"Biden says his mother told him that no one is "better" than him. And while Biden should treat everyone with respect, his mother said her son should also "demand respect."

Hey joe - your mother was wrong. No one should DEMAND respect. Everyone should EARN respect.

THAT is why no one respects you, joe.

Bite me.

Too bad that same advice from Joe's mother did not prevent him kissing Obama’s rear end.

She knew that Joe demanding respect was the only way he had even a chance of getting an iota of it.......then again demanding it serves mostly to drive it further away.......

BiteMe’s mom should have told him that respect is earned. You can demand respect all you want, but if your a douchebag you will never earn it!!

I hate to be on Slow Joe's side (and I am feeling physical pain saying this) but as the official representative of the United States government at these proceedings he shouldn't kiss the Pope's ring. Our country bows to no foreign leader. I complained when Obama did it to the Chinese and the Saudis, and I would complain if Biden did it to the Pope.

Yes. I also suspect his mother actually said that nobody is dumber than him, and he just heard it selectively.

These phonies love to trot out their mothers as convenient political tools.

John Kerry claimed his mother (on her deathbed) told him “integrity, integrity, integrity”. Probably got him lots of votes from the old Irish grannies who fell for the pretense that his ancestors also hailed from the Emerald Isle.

He should have stayed home and sent a non-Catholic in his place.

If the sum total of the garbage and bulk body waste that has been saluted by those in the military since the founding of the nation were represented by an equivalent amount of asphalt, we could at least repave all the Interstate Highways east of the Appalachian Mountains with that amount of asphalt.

You salute the uniform, not the man.

How dare you accuse Joey "Plugs" Biden of Obamanal Fundamental Osculation. Besides, that really is Reggie Love's job description.

Attention MSM reporters and reporterettes.
Put a tail on Reggie. Could be story of the year. Of course, you run the risk of never eating lunch in DC again.

It’s Jesus’ picture on the Pope’s ring. I don’t like the idea of kissing the Pope’s ring. (I don’t like customary kisses, in general. I didn’t grow up in a kissy culture.) But I’d do it, anyway, to show respect for Jesus and for the head of His Church, if that was the customary way to do it.

Now, I could see having a governmental policy of not doing those sorts of gestures to other heads of state. However, Obama kind of lost that point when he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia.

I don’t think that it is him who requires the military to salute and he would probably not take notice if the rule is changed by whoever makes such rules or traditions, and generally, a salute is to be returned.

Jacques didn't tell the whole story:

He asked his mother on her deathbed, "what quality do I lack the most?"

When JFK met the pope he said he wouldn’t be kissing the papal ring as it was a meeting between heads of state and such gesture was a no no.

For those of us who read a lot of FR, the cussing is becoming overwhelming, seeing and mentally saying hundreds of cuss words a day on freerepublic is changing us and our vocabulary, and it sounds simple minded.

Remember in the movie “Patton” when the general strode up the steps at the cathedral in Palermo, knelt, and kissed the cardinal archbishop’s ring? I can understand a non catholic’s reluctance to kiss anyone’s ring, but a catholic, the kissing of the ring like that is signal honor.

Really?

That’s all FRoman Catholics do here on FR!

One cannot say anything negative about their precious church without they whining to a moderator.

Everyone should EARN respect.

A little better perspective is that a pretender to greatness has to demand respect. Genuine leaders command respect.
