Every action has a context, you just dont evaluate one action in a vacuum.
 
The democrats once upon a time made an issue of Bush shaking hands with the Saudi King, given the background that Bush comes from a Oil family. Sucessfully portraying everything Bush did was for Oil. Now it is the time of the Republicans, they claim that Obama tends to offend friends but makes overfriendly gestures towards tradtional rivals/folks who were subservient to America and they are trying to build up a case with Obama's mishaps with the Queen of England. The Saudi King and now this.
 
Depending on your inclination, you tend to find one to be true and other to be a superficial thing. Although both are two sides of the same coin.

i think it's just absurd. it is always good for one leader to understand the custom and cultures of another countries, one who can do so can conquer the world and blend with the world wherever he or she is. it's just the stupidity of the american people or whoever complain and criticizing this act because they don't know and understand and appreciate other people.

There are three types of people criticizing Obama.

One group of conservatives or Republican affiliates is as CPM says merely getting back at him. It may not seem reasonable or fair. I disagree with them. But it is politics, and thats what it sometimes comes down too. People did go over the top in criticizing George Bush sometimes even when there was nothing to criticize.

The second group is ignorant Americans who are unaware of global culture. They are self absorbed. Pride and assertiveness are desirable qualities in individualistic culture. Bending is a sign of great weakness. So they judge Obama by these standards. They view it as their leader weakly swallowing his pride. They have scant understanding of the importance of humility and respect in Eastern Cultures and why a leader has to be tactful, humble and diplomatic.

The third group is just angry Americans who need a reason to be angry. You find them shopping at Wal-Mart.

Though I don't shop at wal-mart (I actually don't even have one where I live), would like to know what's wrong in shopping thereConfused? If you are not a self absorbed American yourself, why to have such a prejudice against those who shop at walmart. And as far as president's bowing goes nothing wrong with that, its just that I find him a bit dramatic and shallow at times, not that I liked Bush any better. But seriously I want to see this man (Obama) in action not just in pictures then I will change my opinion.
Btw Bill Clinton is my manBig smile
