The Ft. Hood shootings were on November 5, 2009. President Obama visited the troops November 10, 2009. Look who visited the troops on November 7,

Credit where its due.

Schedule probably a bit more open than Obama's though, I should imagine...?

That's right. It's hard to
fit things like that in between basketball games, making speeches which call the Republicans liars when they point out that the actual words from the
pages of the health care legislation contradict what Obama says about it, golf, Whitehouse parties, the Whitehouse state dinner in which he insulted
the Prime Minister of India by telling him he should be considered greatly honored to be part of Obama's first state dinner, bowing
to foreign dignitaries to show he believes the U.S. is inferior. . .

Let that go already!
Could it possibly just be a very basic human act of the will to be polite to another foreign dignitary, crossed with a misunderstanding of bowing
If you lived in the UK, you'd be more used to bows and curtseys.

Either of those might have been the case the first time, when Obama bowed to the king of the
House of Saud. At that time, a number of columnists wrote about it--are Obama's protocol advisers incompetent? Is he so conceited that he
disregards their advice? Is he so ignorant that he doesn't realize he is representing the United States? At the time, the While House denied that
Obama bowed--even though he was caught on tape doing so.
So, after this, when The One bowed more deeply three times to the Japanese emperor, he wasn't just acting ignorantly, or on impulse. His action
said, "To hell with what any of the American citizens think. The One will do what HE decides to do."
At the economic summit, every other national leader greated the Japanese leader appropriately, as another leader of another nation, an equal. Only
Obama acted as if he did not know any better.

Is that one of those alien invaders that Obama is going to make an official announcement about?
That's a good example of something that you don't see in the news, isn't it?

Damm Damm, can I post nothing that don't turn into a dissertation on Obama? Your hate is consuming you Scholar.

Spot on delanti. I was disappointed to have to move your post.

It's a sorry state of affairs if scholar can't have a dig at Obama once in a while.
marymary100 - 28-11-2009 at 12:21
It depends on the definition of "a while".
giron - 28-11-2009 at 12:24
A valid point, perhaps every few posts is slightly more than once in a while.
