Obama bows to Emperor Akihito during trip to Japan Saturday.From the L.A. Times: "Very low bows like this are a sign of great respect and deference to a superior."
Hot Air has the video.
We're also reminded of the Obama bow to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Later the White House denied that Obama had bowed even though it was obvious they were lying.
How did MacArthur treat Hirohito?
Who is the "superior" in this photo?
Is Obama totally oblivious to the protocol here? A head of state, such as the U.S. President does not bow to another head of state! Unless of course he sees himself or his country as inferior!
How low can Obama go?
