This is not just a photo. It is an image of a solemn faced President of the United States bowing to the smiling head of Communist China as the oriental leader remains erect. Back when I went to high school that would have said a lot. I think it still does.
Later, Obama honored the communist leader with a lavish White House dinner. This is the same President who wouldn’t even share a bagel with the Prime Minister of democratic Israel. It’s the same president who found hours of time for nearly weekly White House visits from the head of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) but refused to give a minute to the Dali Lama.
Barack H. Obama is also the same person he was when he ran for office in 2008, the first post-American president.
