More than anything, this country has attempted to comply with those ever famous words of our own Declaration of Independence: "All men are created equal". And, more than anything, Obama, being of Black heritage, knows this is of great importance to any man, woman, or child living here.
Yet, this President, who should be considered by all as the most powerful man in the world and nothing less than an equal, keeps subjugating himself by bowing to certain leaders and quasi-leaders of this world. His latest effort was a full to a complete figure-head, the Emperor of Japan (Click to See Full Story: "How low will he go? Obama gives Japan's Emperor Akihito a wow bow").
I just think he is demonstrating to the whole world that he is weak and that, he, himself, acknowledges his weakness by bowing to others. Looking someone in the eye when meeting them is a show of strength. Bowing is just another way of showing that someone is less than someone else. It is not a form of respect. It is a form of subordination.
As a matter of practice, when two of the world's royals meet each other, they don't bow to each other because they consider themselves to be equals. If they did, they would literally be banging their heads into each other. That's is why Obama should never have bowed.
Please note: The last time Obama bowed, Robert Gibbs, Obama's Press Secretary, flatly denied it was a bow. What now, Robert? Obviously, Barack Obama has managed, once again, to prove Robert Gibbs to be the liar-in-chief for the Obama Administration.
