How low will he go? Obama gives Japan’s Emperor Akihito a wow bow

This story is creating “outrage” in Washington. Why? “It’s not appropriate for an American president to bow to a foreign one,” said conservative pundit William Kristol speaking on the Fox News Sunday program, adding that the gesture bespoke a United States that has become weak and overly-deferential under Obama.
Hold on. What happened to humility? American’s predominantly think they are better than other nationalities or countries. That attitude is what gives us a bad rap internationally and also a reason why I have little desire to live in the USA right now.
Good job, Obama. I commend you for accepting the JP culture and showing respect to your host.
… When Obama left Japan he traveled to China opening up even more controversy 😉
