Obama Grovels Before Yet Another Foreign Leader

There’s a scene in the movie Crocodile Dundee that reminds me of the current Obama fiasco (there’s ALWAYS an Obama fiasco, but this is the fiasco of the hour).  Mick “Crocodile” Dundee visits New York and is confronted by a mugger with a switchblade.  His gal-pal, Sue, says, “Mick, give him your wallet!”  And Dundee says, “What for?”  Sue, looking at the switchblade, says, “He’s got a knife.”  An amused Crocodile Dundee says, “That’s not a knife,” as he draws this gigantic Bowie knife that dwarfs the trivial-by-comparison switchblade.  “This is a knife.”  The mugger runs away.


ABC reporter Jake Tapper tries to put Obama’s bow into “perspective” by pointing out that Richard Nixon had at least sort of bowed in 1971.

But let’s apply what we just learned from Crocodile Dundee.


That’s not a bow.

Apparently, Bill Clinton did something that wasn’t quite a bow, either.

But about what Obama just did on his Asia tour (while he runs away from his decision to send the troops his general requested for Afghanistan, while he runs away from the latest unemployment report of 10.2%, runs away from his inability to label the Fort Hood massacre as a terrorist attack)?  Well….

THIS is a bow.


And it’s not just a bow.  It is a grovel.  It’s the profoundly disturbing and disgusting genuflection of a man who clearly has no business representing a people who drove away kings by force of arms bowing down low before his betters.

It’s an insult to everything America stands for.

ABC’s Jake Tapper put it this way:

“The bow as he performed did not just display weakness in Red State terms, but evoked weakness in Japanese terms….The last thing the Japanese want or need is a weak looking American president and, again, in all ways, he unintentionally played that part.”

Just like this prior contemptible event, in which Obama groveled before the Saudi king:

Mind you, Obama did not merely cravenly grovel before King Abdullah (making America grovel before Saudi Arabia by proxy), he cravenly lied to the American people about cravenly bowing down before the king of Saudi Arabia.

You’d think he would have learned his lesson, but grovelling just seems too deeply ingrained into his psyche.  He just can’t help himself.  It’d part of his unfortunate condition of statolatry.

Obama’s “Disgrace America Tour” is kind of like the Rolling Stones — it just keeps going on and on and on and on.

Obama doesn’t have to grovel before Nancy Pelosi — as long as he lets her have complete control over “his” healthcare agenda.

Here’s a picture of Vice President Cheney offering his respects to the Japanese emperor.


Ah, thank God for an actual grown-up who actually understands that American leaders do not grovel before foreign ones.

I’m betting that “inexperienced” Sarah Palin wouldn’t have groveled before the emperor, either.  Apparently, bowing and groveling is something that they teach at Harvard.

You know what I wonder?  I wonder if FDR or Harry Truman, who defeated Imperial Japan at the great cost of 100,000 American lives following their vicious attack against Pearl Harbor, would have bowed down before the Japanese emperor?

Just wondering.

    I think it is highly possible Obama bowed in apology for the USA’s bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. What we did was righteous retaliation to an act of war.
    In his demented mind, the USA must grovel and apologize and make amends for all wrongs, real and imagined by him and his leftist loons. They get it wrong 100% of the time, they really do.
    He continues to be an utter embarassment on the world stage.

    Between Michelle Obama’s “For the first time in my adult life I’m proud of my country” remark and Obama’s own remarks to the world, these are people who NEVER thought that the US had ever done anything right until the day they took office.

    One of the interesting questions is what will happen if we are hit by a mass terror attack again (and the trial of the terrorists in NYC dramatically increases THAT likelihood). Personally, I don’t think Obama would do ANYTHING that the “international community” would not embrace – which means he would do NOTHING that meant anything.

    Would Obama have A-bombed Japan? I think he’d A-bomb conservative states, but I doubt he’d do so to an enemy.

    Obama is an embarrassment to anyone who believes in 1) objective morality and 2) the Constitution.

    Has it escaped anyone’s attention that perhaps Obama has manners? When you are a guest you should submit to your host’s tradition of proper manners.
    If I walk into someone’s house and they request I take off my shoes, I abide by their wishes. Just because I have the power to buy them a new carpet or destroy their home, does not excuse me from being courteous.
    The real test will be when one of those leaders comes to U.S. soil. How will Obama receive them on his turf? If he bows down in his own house, then that’s a problem. Until that day, Obama is simply trying not to be a rude guest. Perhaps several of you could take that as a lesson in decorum.

    A few things:
    1) Japanese cultural experts have pointed out that the Japanese do NOT bow that way. So you’re simply wrong in your premise. The very slight bow that Nixon offered was appropriate. Groveling is not culturally appropriate.

    2) Americans don’t bow before their own leaders, and our leaders should not bow before others. What part about this do you fail to understand? Unlike Japan, we are NOT and NEVER HAVE BEEN a society that believes our “emperor” is a direct descendant of the gods. They are not our “betters” and we offer courtesy and respect, but NEVER obeisance or genuflection.

    3) If a part of your idea of “courtesy” or “manners” is that I bow down before you in your house – let alone my house – then please cross me off your visitor’s list, because I shant be coming.

    On April 18, 1775 John Adams and John Hancock were at the home of Rev. Jonas Clarke, a Lexington pastor and militia leader. That same night Paul Revere arrived to warn them of the approaching Redcoats. The next morning British Major Pitcairn shouted to an assembled regiment of Minutemen; “Disperse, ye villains, lay down your arms in the name of George the Sovereign King of England.” The immediate response of Rev. Jonas Clarke or one of his company was:

    “We recognize no Sovereign but God and no King but Jesus.”

    And with all due respect, neither do I – and neither should the president of the nation that these great and wise men founded.

    cvg you are absolutly right. It is custom in Japan to bow to anyone you are first meeting.I think Obama showed some class and respect when he bowes slightly to the king of saudi arabia. These incidents are nothing to the groveling of congress when it comes to that tub of shit netanyahu and their masters the holy of holies Israel.

  6. Michael Eden Says:


    Wow, you soon to be blocked racist bigot.

    On your view, it’s okay for Obama to grovel before ANYBODY as long as he isn’t a Jew.

    It’s times like this I know there’s a Satan. Because only he can explain why people like you are so full of irrational hate for the people through whom God revealed Himself.

    Now get lost.
