Obama Protocol

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

bowing japanIf he thinks I am going to buy this – he is dumber than he looks! His bow to the Saudi King caused such an indignation only a fool would give another full bow again and start that all over … unless he has an ulterior motive. He has, and I for one am not falling for that curtain call. Do they really take us for complete morons?

Standing alone the bow to the Saudi King would always bring him disparagement – but as one of several bows perhaps it’s repugnance to American’s can be diminished. Perfectly timed so as to appear part of this man’s MO when visiting country’s that expect bowing, he forgets he did not bow to England’s Queen not to mention he and his nervy wife actually put their hands on the Queen. What that a lack of reverence forshellyqueen England, or the Queen because she was a woman? Notice the full bow to Emperor Akihito  of Japan and the head nod to his wife, Empress Michiko. Even that was better than the pat on the back poor Lizzy got! ( Ooops that was Queen Elizabeth wasn’t it?)

So much for when in Rome … but then again let’s see if he kisses the Pope’s ring – after all that is custom when meeting the Pope – is it not? But American protocol is the only one i am concerned with as should our President be. More of the change we can do without!

Of course customs in foreign lands are to be respected- while those at home are ignored such as was done at Georgetown University when he appeared and had the Christ Figure covered! Is this what the man meant by Change? It feels more like Schizophrenia the way his motus operandi flips around and changes to suit or should I say attempt to fix every faux pas he manages to make both from his lack of experience and his handler’s blunder.

Meanwhile, Bill Clinton caught all kinds of hell for a mere head nod in 1994, while this POTUS ass appears as a full rump shot every chance it gets – well except in the presence of Queens — or so it would appear.

 “It wasn’t a bow, exactly. But Mr. Clinton came close. He inclined his head and shoulders forward, he pressed his hands together. It lasted no longer than a snapshot, but the image on the South Lawn was indelible: an obsequent President, and the Emperor of Japan.” … 

But the “thou need not bow” commandment from the State Department’s protocol office maintained a constancy of more than 200 years. Administration officials scurried to insist that the eager-to-please President had not really done the unthinkable.

“It was not a bow-bow, if you know what I mean,” said Ambassador Molly Raiser, the chief of protocol.

White House officials described Mr. Clinton’s tilt as something of an improvisation. Because Emperor Akihito broke with tradition in turn to raise his glass at the state dinner, some even said Mr. Clinton had managed something of a breakthrough.

“Presidents don’t bow, and Emperors don’t toast,” one official said. “So this was a little bit like the cultures meeting each other halfway.” http://www.nytimes.com/1994/06/19/weekinreview/the-world-the-president-s-inclination-no-it-wasn-t-a-bow-bow.html

Obama Bows to Japanese King This Time

What part of the American President does NOT bow to any royalty does Obama not understand. You would have thought he would have learned after the Saudi King fiasco of bowing, but he didn’t. Obvious to Americans that Obama was not raised as American as he makes the Office of President subservient to Kings unless it is Britain and then no protocol observed. Our most loyal ally and he treats the Queen like she is the next door neighborn not the Queen of England.

  1. I guess he can’t say he was picking something up; or some other “BS” like he did at the G20.

  2. He has a lot of flatulance.
