Why are republicans OBSESSING over whether Obama bowed, or Michelle “curtsied” to the QUEEN of England?

I mean……why the hell SHOULD they? Just WHO is she, anyway?

last time I checked……..inhereited power by BIRTHRIGHT……is actually, only a FIGUREHEAD………we BEAT them in a war over 230 years ago, and told them to piss off…………and our Naval Fleet could sink theirs 5 times over and then some………

so why are we suppose to bow or cortesy at all, to the old hag?

Last time I checked……….AMERICA was the Super Power……….leader of the FREE world………and a DEMOCRATICALLY elected one at that………

so……..why doesn’t the QUEEN respect THAT, and BOW or curtsey to Obama or Michelle?

Are we suppose to respect her WEALTH?

Yeah, nice kid gloves and Tiara…….while your nation is rampant with yobs and hooligans and soaring crimes…….

what are we suppose to be respecting here??????

Our president shouldn’t have to bow to anyone and in fact I don’t think he did bow to the queen but he sure as hell almost bent completely over forward to bow to a Saudi King that is what the uproar is about.And as for Michelle, God only know what that woman will do your guess is as good as mine.I do have to say to call the queen an old hag is really unfair she is elderly and has more class in her little finger then OUR president and his wife could ever have…..

Republicans are obsessing over this because they are bitter and twisted because they lost the election. They have made a stream of stupid and ignorant comments on their new President since before he was elected. From suggesting he is a muslim terrorist to blaming him for the current reccession and even suggesting he is a communist. This latest rubbish is just more of the same, nobody in the UK cares whether they bowed or curtsied, not all British people do not do so when they meet the Queen, nobody cares whether the First Lady and the Queen put an arm… Read more »

Its nothing to do with republicans. England has protocol that goes back past the time of the conquest. But I guess a hillbilly Democrat wouldn’t understand Royal protocol.

I saw the meeting. Both Pres Obama and Mrs Obama did indeed make a short bow to Her Majesty. I don’t even know why the hell this crap should ever be important.

A true American doesn’t bow down to anyone. We don’t kneel or bow to anyone, never ever. Obama would since he is a Muslim bowing to his masters. Oh and PS there Canadian , the war of 1812 was a joke. We never even got a 1/4 of our troops into Canada. We could take your pissy army with the National Guard of New Jersey alone. Hell we could arm the Boy Scouts and take your country in 3 days tops.

They Panicked because the first lady touched the queen. You do not touch the queen.

I am an american and as an american I believe we have no right to talk about (almost) any other country. We have enough problems at home to deal with instead of being pissy about some other country’s figurehead. Like you said no real power so no real worry! ( Not what I believe, but If that’s what you believe why worry)

Maybe if people had respect like there was a hundred years ago the world would be in this position.

Unless I missed something else that happened I think you’re getting two events confused. 1) Michelle Obama touched the Queen of England. You’re technically not supposed to do that. It’s a protocol/cultural thing. It’d be like if flipping the middle finger was ok in one country it’d be OK to flip the bird to heads of state where it’s considered a rude gesture. Of course given that the queen touched Michelle Obama first and that she came out later and said it was fine it’s a non-issue. People may be obsessing over it because it was a breach in protocol… Read more »

She is the head of state. It’s just polite. Just because she inherited her title, dosen’t mean she’s not head of state. Once again, it’s part of international politics, which you would know if you weren’t 10. You won a war 230 years ago. Wow. Does that mean you don’t have to abide by international protocol? We beat you in the war of 1812, does that mean the Queen can slap Obama in the face next time they meet? What does it matter what you naval fleet could do? If your navy did try and sink the British navy there… Read more »

It’s called respect. That is their custom. When you go to another land you are supposed to do as they do.
