"I welcome our new alien overlord!"
Hey, if you gotta bow, bowing to Chris Christie is a good choice.

Geeze! And Bill Clinton only got a handshake from JFK!

The general behind young Mr. President is having none of the forced jocularity of the moment.
Perfectly appropriate conduct from one whose brothers-in-arms are under the authority of this FOOL.

Actually he was bowing to the bald guy behind Chris picking his pocket. with his left hand, to retrieve the invitation to the photo op in the sandwich shop in Edison - sent in error.

If you are going to bow, do so to someone who is your better as you recognize it.
This is a truer picture of him that I've seen yet.

What General? That's an E-7, a Sgt in the Air Force. Nothing wrong, that man works for a living, contrary to the brass hat.

Thanks for the correction Vermont Woodchuck. I am woefully ignorant about military insignias.
Well, the Sgt.wasn't amused,as is even more to be expected from a man who works for a living.

I've been appalled by other instances of Obama's bowing down but, without seeing video, I'm going to call this as more doubling over with laughter. "Bowing" just doesn't seem to fit the moment here.
