The mainstream media have been utterly in the tank for Obama. One sign of this fact is that to this date he has not been asked what he was doing when he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia and the Emperor of Japan. His then press spokesman simply lied about Obama’s behavior when asked by a member of the press. White House press spokesman Robert Gibbs denied what any fool could see. Indeed, one astute observer commented on CNN that “Ray Charles could see that he bowed.”
Those bows signify. Among other things, they were deeply un-American. Americans don’t bow to royalty. When the royalty is the ruling tyrant of a despotic regime, the wrong is compounded.
