Subjects may feel compelled bow to a king and queen to whom they are loyal, or to other royalty for whom they feel particular affection. Reportedly, he nodded his head but didn't bow to Queen Elizabeth. The deep bow was not a question of following proper protocol because, if it were, Michelle wouldn't have put her arm around the Queen.

This is all highly consistent with his behavior of dissing traditional allies and praising traditional enemies--something the Left is obviously very comfortable with defending.

I bet if Obama was born and schooled in texas or west-by God-virginia he prob would have just shook his hand without the bow. His learned social graces had the deciding role in this instance I think!

It's definitely not an American tradition. We fought the revolutionary war to rid ourselves of that subservience. Presidents don't bow to monarchs.....ever.

The point of the topic is the WH denies it was a bow. They must see something wrong with the POTUS enthusiastically bowing to this guy or they wouldn't deny it, would they?



He wasn't picking up a gum wrapper like some WH hack was explaining.

A fist bump is most appropriate. BHO and the Mrs. are quite good at it. They tried it with the Queen, but she has arthritis in her elbow and couldn't quite get the extension on her arm to make it work. She alligator-armed it and the fists never quite came together causing quite an embarrassment. :P :P

The article explains Obama's error. It was a departure from protocol.

In the EAST this tradition arose so as to guide one's GUEST through the minefield.
Similarly, this is why women precede men...


Holding one's hand, is observing a tradition, BOWING is HOMAGE...

NO PRESIDENT OF MY UNITED STATES is to BOW before anyone, nor is the American flag dipped [except to return a ship's salute (rare)]
What would Barney Frank do under similar circumstances? :oops: Uh-Oh did it again...


HOWEVER (and for example only)
My president may, however, doff his hat to a lady or kiss the ring of his Bishop, if he is so inclined.
