Oba-Mao Bow

"May I shine your shoes, Sir?"

This photo will get President Obama a lot of approving nods in Japan this weekend, especially among the older generation of Japanese, who still pay attention to the royal family living in its downtown castle. Very low bows like this are a sign of great respect and deference to a superior.

Time for a quick review of statements from our groveler-in-chief:
  • "I'm always worried about using the word 'victory,' because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur."
  • "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That's not leadership. That's not going to happen."
  • "Too often, the United States has not pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors. We have been too easily distracted by other priorities, and have failed to see that our own progress is tied directly to progress throughout the Americas."
  • "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism, and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”
  • "... All too often the United States starts by dictating."

All too often, Obama starts by groveling.


American Power: Obama 'Restores' America's World Standing With His Head Down

Stark contrast...Greeting the Emperor of Japan: Obama vs. the rest of the world.

How Low Will He Go?

This Is Getting Embarrassing...

Flashback: NYT blasts Clinton for … almost bowing to Akihito

Politico: Obama bowed to Japanese emperor as 'protocol'. End of story. Move along. Nothing to see here.

Contrary to some claims, the video shows no reciprocal bow by the emperor, who bows to no one.

Who is a failure? Obama, if you do a Google search.

Obama greeted with "Oba Mao" T-shirts and a statue of him that bursts into flames.

He was running around in one of those cute Mao jackets today, can't wait for a great shot of that!

Obama was reprising his song from the Wizard of Oz: "If I only had a spine!"

It appears to me that democrats themselves are no longer on the bandwagon with Obama..why, if its so great? Because they know it will fail and bankrupt us, and they do not want to be responsible for it... its failure cannot be blamed on Republicans, who can't block it because Democrats have a filibuster proof Senate..
Why was there even a press conference tonight? It was nothing more than Obama patting himself on the back, taking a victory lap for a failed stimulus plan, and running us in circles about a medical plan he hasn't even read. He seemed incapable of breaking it down so we could understand the plan/cost and access..of course that made sense because Obama hasn't even read it.. Geesh! His own understanding of it was explained in an incoherent manner, yet he expects us to just accept it being rushed through in the next 2 weeks! Obama is living in his own fantasy world filled with lies/deceit... Americans are starting to realize it and we will no longer be docile

Proof, That's a really good one. Although, I would hate to lower one of my favorite movies to Obama's gutter standards. Obama said he believes in exceptionaism. What a bald-faced lie. He is hampering exceptionalism and the American dream. Who the heck is going to want to succeed and become wealthy just to give a majority of your money away to a bunch of lazy do-nothings?

JL: So many great moments when Obama goes overseas.

Proof: Yes!

WHT: next time he'll be prostrate in the ground.

BRW: People better get moving quickly. Running out of time to stop O.

Teresa: Libs want us to give up and let gov't take care of us.
