'Reflective Instinct', My Ass
Leg tingles infect Fox News

So why didn't Jack Kennedy kiss the Pope's ring? Hmmm... I wonder?

Here's the meat and potatoes of the article from CNS.com;

On “Fox & Friends” Friday morning, Geraldo Rivera offered the opinion that Obama’s bow was the reflexive instinct of someone raised in the Muslim tradition – “a sign of affection and respect” from a younger man to an older man.And Geraldo isn't the only one falling all over himself defending The South-Side Stooge. Obamaniacs are lemmingesquely lining up all over the web to explain away The Bow.

But anyhow, I recall reading of an instance during the Kennedy Presidency, while on a visit to NYC, there so happened to be a couple of reporters with JFK in the Presidential limo. As they drove by St. Patrick's Cathedral, President Kennedy (without even thinking) did the Sign of the Cross.

As soon as he realized what he had done (and realized that a couple of secular reporters just saw what happened), he sheepishly said "that's off the record, OK guys?"

Whatever problems Kennedy did or didn't have in his marriage, you have to admit that even if the only reason was for the photo-op, here was a guy who went to Mass on a regular basis.

For Jack Kennedy to 'reflectively' execute a Sign of the Cross is not only reasonable, but expected. To expect us to buy-off on the excuse that Obama would 'reflectively' bow as deeply as he did... and he supposedly hasn't been exposed to islam on a daily basis for decades now... c'mon, Geraldo. Don't piss down our backs and tell us it's raining.

Barry's probably a non-practicing Muslim...You'd think he would of found an ecclesastical community by now being in DC for these past few months.

Ironically, Obama had two excellent roll models vis-a-vis showing "respect" to Islam:

1. Pope JP-II kissed the Koran

2. The eggregious Cardinal Law prostrated himself in a Mosque during public prayer.

Go figure . . . .

The next thing somebody will say is that Obama's middle name is Hussein! LOL

My own opinion as to why BHO bowed is because he is just so stupid that he doesn't realized he's not supposed to.

I gotta agree with Robert.

He did the same thing to the mayor of Chicago, his original godfather.

Never thought I'd see the day where a Kennedy was more respected than someone else. Pathetic.
