Former Vice President Dick Cheney, made a fool of himself (again) when he attacked President Barack Obama for bowing Japanese Emperor Akihito.
Cheney told POLITICO.com:
“There is no reason for an American president to bow to anyone. Our friends and allies don’t expect it, and our enemies see it as a sign of weakness.”
However, Cheney (as well as the rest of the rabid rightwing) was silent when his boss, former President George W. Bush, french kissed Saudi Arabian Prince Abdullah.
Perhaps, our conservative friends can explain how Obama’s bow to Emperor Akihito is worse than Bush sinking his tongue down Prince Abdullah’s throat because frankly, I just don’t see it.
