What was Obama thinking?

Posted on Nov.15.2009 at 1:12
Here's a series of photos showing world leaders greeting the emperor of Japan over the years, ending in one of Obama bowing.

Why did he do it?

Clearly it has nothing to do with protocol. And it was obviously deliberate. But after the criticism he came under with his bow to the Saudi king, and his administration's subsequent recognition of the gaffe and denial that it had even happened, I can only come to one conclusion: he has concluded that the denial of that earlier bow didn't work and is now just trying to dilute it's noteworthiness.

My thought as well.

It also gives him a smokescreen to the observation he kisses the behind of only the enemies of the U.S.
