Yup! He did it again.
This time to the Chicoms.

I think he has a spine problem. As in, he doesn't have one.

Just looking for a new dance move. He pretty much has it nailed.

He's not even returning a bow, he's initiating it. I'm sure it gives him the cultural sensitivity warm and fuzzies.

I don't think he has a spine — unless he is dealing with republicans and tea party people.

Someone needs to put him in a "straight" jacket.

Cultural warm fuzzies for the wrong culture. Bowing isn't really all that common in China, used mostly at funerals and sometimes when apologizing.
Maybe he did know what he was doing, and the Apology Tour continues.

Hey, man! He's just doin his thing! You know? He's like, a rebel or something. He doesn't care what anyone thinks. He's like, "hey man! I'm gonna bow when I want and to who I want!"

He's just taking a bow for the end of a great run of American supremacy. Nothing but grace, this one *sniff*

There's different kinds of bows in the Asian cultures. It happens unconsciously most of the time and it's often reciprocated unconsciously. That being said and regardless of what happened during, this is an acceptable gesture.

Maybe he's admiring his shoes…? No.. no… Obama's just an idiot. My bad! 🙂

I find it funny how he bows to these people but not the Pope! Our Great Leader does it again!

Young, Catholic, Obama did in fact bow to the Pope. I saw the video. I thought that was kind of cool — even if he didn't really mean it.
Bowing can be a sign of old-fashioned courtliness. Why do people have such a problem with it?

Lori, the reason people have a problem with the president bowing is that it is nontraditional. Traditionally the U.S. head of state never bows to a foreign leader, and we never dip our flag to another flag. Some may disagree with it, but this has been the protocol for over a two centuries.

Did anyone else notice that it is at the Nuclear Security Summit… it wasn't innocent, it wasn't a coincidence, and it certainly wasn't an acceptable gesture. Remember, this is the guy that told the entire world that no matter what they do to us, we won't use nukes against them. We'll just turn the other cheek… not great foreign policy.
