Obama's new rules

When you are president of the United States and greeting foreign royalty, be sure to bow deeply and comically. Ignore the facts that as head of a sovereign state, you are their peer and representing 300 million Americans; that as the highest official of the world’s first truly democratic republic, you are flouting two and a quarter centuries of protocol and tradition; and that as commander-in-chief of its most powerful nation, you are revealing both your inexperience and weakness to our friends and foes alike.
