Yeah, the mayor of Tampa should probably bow to the Emperor, too.
 
2010-01-31 08:22:10 PM
My god! He wants us to be taken over by Floridians!

This is an outrage! I'm voting for Bush!

wtf is this guy's problem?!?

Humility? That bastard!

Bowing to another American is fine, I think. It's not like Americans think the President is an emissary of God -- it's probably unnecessary to avert one's gaze when he walks by, and if he happens to bow to another citizen it's not unduly traumatic.
 
2010-01-31 10:54:48 PM
Well, the President does work for the American people--and last I checked, that would include the mayor of Tampa, even with it being img1.fark.net and all. Respect the guy for his humility--and try not to be on the receiving end of his televised ass-whooping to a congressional caucus.

Riiiiiiight, because if George W. Bush had bowed to the Asian-American mayor of Tampa, the headlines I'm sure wouldn't have read OMB BOOSH TEH IDIOT THINKS HI ASIAN LADY I BOW TO YOU BECAUSE YOU HAVE SLANTY EYES.

There's no farking reason to bow to some mayor other than "Hmm, you appear Asian, I guess I should bow to you, because I'm an idiot".

I can't help but notice there's no such photo from AP. It's Some Guy's website.

A Google search only turns up more wharrgarbl sites.

Sorry, gonna say...

Maybe he just likes bowing.
 
2010-02-01 12:06:32 AM
Maybe he's just got a farked up back and is just hunched over for a moment. Does anybody consider that possiblity?
 
2010-02-01 12:06:33 AM
Or maybe, as I said in another thread, he's leaning down to hear her. They're on an airport runway. It's loud. He's tall.
 
2010-02-01 12:06:37 AM
It looks like she is saying something to him... could he be bending forward so that he could hear what she's saying?

Er, I mean... How dare he?!? That does it, I'm voting for McCain!

The Stealth Hippopotamus: wtf is this guy's problem?!?

He grew up in Hawaii, where there is a large Asian population, where it is polite to bow when creating someone.

Um, I don't think she's asian.

Why is Fark greenlighting links to some idiot's blog? It's not even not news.

I think a bow is usual and customery when you are giving an apology for all the hurricanes the United States has caused Tampa.

Just protocol these days

Obama is the Boobies-American president.
 
2010-02-01 12:10:49 AM
He felt the need to groove and was merely breaking it down.
 
2010-02-01 12:11:48 AM
In all fairness, Tampa is a fun/great/awesomne city.
 
2010-02-01 12:12:08 AM
Aaaaand I'm cold-filtered.

"Obama is the first (wait for it) post-American president.

Great, so if I get a date in Hawaii, I gotta buy her dinner and then, if I get lucky, bow to her afterwards?

As a Free Republic supporter, I object to Obama bowing to the leader of yet another foreign power.

Not afterwards. During. That's the hard part. If you bow the kid will be a normal person, if you don't they will grow up to post on Fark.

Bowing is a sign of respect, not submission.

Watch karate fighters, they bow to each other before every fight. They are not submitting to the other fighter, they are showing respect to each other.

It's like shaking hands.

I'm glad this thread was tagged "mayor of tampa" so that I could quickly catch up on all stories relating to the Mayor of Tampa that I may have missed.

Your thread called, they're wondering where you are.

Oh, my gawd!
 
2010-02-01 12:18:58 AM
no, i don't think there is an reasonable reason to bow to an Emperor.
 
2010-02-01 12:19:24 AM
American's do not bow. We shake hands 'til it's awkward.

/and then a little more.

So Obama was showing respect before he prepared to kick their ass. What a champion!

There's a spear at your back, a sword at your neck, and your gun just jammed.
 
2010-02-01 12:20:39 AM
uh... he's respectful. Who cares?

People bow for a lot of reasons, just just fighting.

Same way you shake hands. Refusal to do so could be taken as an insult.
 
2010-02-01 12:22:19 AM
NOT just fighting.

/got to either lay off the scotch or go get another one...

Maybe Obama should stick up his middle finger right in the person's face and scream "EAT MY shiat!" so hard it makes veins in his neck bulge?
 
2010-02-01 12:24:05 AM
She looks more than a little bit like Kim Jung-Il in that picture.

Just sayin'

But that would take balls.

Okay, reasonable people can disagree about Florida tag bowing to Hero tag. But Strange tag?
