Contrasting pictures: Obama bows to despot; points finger at our friend

Of course this week, Obama again bowed to a world leader — this time to Chinese Leader Hu at the Nuclear Summit:

Contrast this coddling of a despot to the finger-pointing picture pose of Prime Minister Harper of Canada…our ally.

Of course, the finger point is a click in time and may not be all it appears to be — I’ll give him that benefit of the doubt….but perhaps Obama should be aware of shutter click gestures that don’t look so grand…..especially after purposefully bowing to a world leader of a Communist country!

On the other hand, from Gabriel Malor at Ace of Spades, who knows if it was purposeful:

After the carefully crafted optics of Obama bowing to certain foreign leaders, I can’t believe that this was an accident….

Remember the “Miss Me Yet?” billboards?  Well, apparently we do miss George W. Bush….and pictures like this solidify that longing for a President who, warts and all, loves America and respects our allies.

Heck, apparently, Obama is so bad, that even Ron Paul is looking good to Americans! 😉

The Anchoress has similar sentiments to missing the “cowboy”:

I miss the swaggering cowboy. He may have been tongue-tied; he may have screwed up with an errant backrub, but he didn’t bow to royalty, he didn’t give embarrassing gifts to allies, he didn’t show the Dalai Lama the back door. He never said to a visiting ally (paraphrased) “I’m gonna go have dinner with Laura, and if you decide to obey me, I’ll be around.”

He didn’t shove his finger in the face of another country’s prime minister.

Oh, yes, we do.
