OUCH! And that whole bowing thing?
And lets not forget the bow:
Before we get to his other multiple fluffs and diplomatic errors, let’s explain what Obama was telling the Japanese people with his absurdly low bow. The sort of bow that Obama made is almost that of a “dogeza” bow. This is a sort of bow that is so low as to be considered a prostrated position. It is seen as an apology, a supplication, not a sign of respect.
The smartest guy in the room huh? Sure, if he is alone. And how about the Liberals fixation on how the rest of the world sees us? How is that working out?
