Drudge: Obama's foreign policy

THIS is why I still read Drudge after all these years. It is why 10 Billion people visited his site last year.

  1. well to be fair Richard Nixon bowed to Emperor Hirohito...who had ruled Japan when Pearl harbour happened..... and Bush bowed to King Abdullah, who cuts heads of of Christians ,besides a president SHOULD bow before and Emperor, as since an Emperor deserves more respect...

    1. Nope, sorry. Cleveland Plain dealer & Washington Times: "The Washington Times called the bow a "shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate", which runs contrary to a long-held American tradition of not deferring to royalty.

      The Times continued:

      "By bending over to show greater respect to Islam, the US president belittled the power and independence of the United States. Such an act is a traditional obeisance befitting a king's subjects, not his peer. There is no precedent for U.S. presidents bowing to Saudi or any other royals."

      President Bush was bending over to have the medal put around his neck. Not bowing.

    2. what about Nixon bowing to Hirohito

  2. Please note that the two men are bowing mutally to each other (at somewhat less than a 45 degree angle), with hands at their sides. That is the correct way to show respect in Japan.

    If you look at the pattern of Obama's behavior and his speech combined with his actions, and let us not forget the 2009 Great Apology Tour, we can plainly see that Obama is a groveling apologist who hates America and has steadily diminished our inflection an stature abroad. Look at what he does over time, not just what he says.

  3. "Only Nixon could go to China". Now, thanks in part to that bold move, most everything sold in America is "Made in China".
