Where is he embarrassed and lying / hiding it from the American people? Its not like the caption of the photo says something like
"President Barack Obama greets (while coincidentally checking to make sure his shoes were shiny while he shook hands with) Chinese President Hu Jintao during the official arrivals for the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, Monday April 12, 2010."
This is such a stupid thread. Big fucking deal he bowed its customary to do so URGGGG! I'm sure the Chinese President either bowed first or afterward. Can't do it at the same time especially with Pres. Obama being quite a bit taller.
At least our current president isn't kissing / holding hands with another man.
^^^ I don't care if its customary I'd have not had the cameras around for THAT
