Can you decide?

Do you think he is bowing or not?

Obama appears to greet the mayor of Tampa, Pam Iorio, with a bow in a picture taken last week by an Associated Press photographer.

I think after this one we need a midget to follow him around and kick him in the shin every time he starts bowing.

  • Yes, it looks as if he's bowing. Is this a repeat post? 


     Momof03, why do you care and how does his bowing adversely affect you or this country?

    bows are used for apologies, to express humility. He is the flipping President of the United States. He bows to no one! Now, I would agree the bow to the Japanese Emperor was in order, the Japanese Emperor bowed also. But she is a Mayor... its a bit silly to bow to the mayor of Tampa...

    It's not respect if even the person he's bowing to feels embarrassed and uncomfortable. If anything it's just a little bit racist. Oh look, Asian person, I better bow!
