The Ass-Kisser In Chief Strikes Again
Pucker-up, buttercup

This goofball kinda makes a habit of kowtowing, doesn't he?

Gee, I wonder why he didn't bow and kiss the Pope's ring? Hey, if he's going to abide by whatever cultural custom for one (or two, as the case may be), then he should for all, right?

But silly me, I actually expected some consistency and integrity from The South-Side Stooge.

He's not supposed to do that in the first place, for ****'s sake. He's the head of state just like the Emperor of Japan is.

Looks too me like Pope Benedict just might have told "O" an off-color joke! LOL Just kidding.

I have no words to express my disgust for the way this man is dragging the office of President of the United States through the mud.

How degrading, even disgusting, to the see the President of the most powerful nation on earth not to mention a head of state acting like a a serf before some nobleman.

I wonder if he gifted him with a CD of Obama's Greatest Speeches like he did to the Queen of England?

At least when the Obamas met the Pope, Michelle wore a black dress and black veil, instead of the splashy, trashy stuff she wears to other solemn occasions.

Remember how Obama showed what he thought of the pope. He lied to Papa Benedetto about reducing abortions.

Ade, actually the look on the Pope's face seems to be saying" You have got to be kidding. How could they elect him President of the USA?"

With Japan, the society at least includes bowing as a universal sign of respect. I hate to defend him any, but here he's not so out of line. Yes, with King Hussein, it disgusting and makes a mockery of his position and nation. With Japan, I'd need to see video to be convinced.

My point exactly! If he's going to bow to one, then he should bow to all. BTW, why no bow to the Queen of England?

I hadn't even thought of a pun when I wrote my comment. Good one though! LOL

He'll bow to forien kings but he won't place his hand over his heart when *our* national anthem is played...

I disagree; Obama is not bowing, he's bending over.

Are you saying that he is mooning us? ROFLMAO

The look on Pope Benedict's face is something else! *hearty laugh*

I think the Pope is thinking "I must have serious problems with the Catholic Church in the USA if 54% of them voted for this empty suit."

& the more I look at Papa Benedetto's expression I have to wonder if he wasn't thinking of restarting the Spanish Inquisiton just for Obama!

I don't know if he's mooning us, but he's definitely shining us on.

Then with the Pope who's gesturing towards the confessional, prezbo is definitely sweating through that big nervous smile.

Did I just make up a new title for the most powerful man in the world?

News Flash: After extensive research i have the real poop about the Obama bow which will be revealed in a post on my blog this Thursday. (Although I may have just given everyone a clue as to what it is about.)

I may be a staunch conservative, but I'm actually going to give Obama the benefit of the doubt on this one. Firstly, it is culturally appropriate and respectful. I don't view it as a sign of submission, but one of respect. My research indicates that Nixon actually bowed to Hirohito, which I find VERY surprising considering that Nixon lived through the Second World War, and the controversial reputation Hirohito had. (Historians haven't come to a final judgement on him yet.) What I do have a problem with is the lack of consistency. If he bows to the King of Saudi Arabia and the Emperor of Japan, he better damn well do likewise for the Holy Father.

Where are Obama's protocol people? Oh, wait, protocol is a bourgeois thing, so no protocol to follow even if it makes you look like a sissy.

Seriously, there's no problem with a slight blow, but culturally speaking, the lower the "bower" the lower the status.

These are only static pictures that do not show how the people were moving. It reminds me of a couple of old songs: 1. Shake your tailfeathers, Baby; and 2. the Limbo, although he seems to have it backwards or upside down or something. It's definitely not the Lindy Hop. Wait a minute, I recall seeing Tina Turner and also Janice Joplin doing that to the microphone in their concerts.
