Obama apparently doesn’t realize that the occupant of the office he lays claim to is supposed to represent the sovereign people of the United States. At newsmax.com the following picture accompanied a story reporting his clearly deliberate bow to the Japanese Emperor Akihito.
Given the decidedly outraged reaction to his bow to the King of Saudi Arabia, there’s no way this new affront is anything but a deliberate repudiation of respect for the republican form of government (of, by and for the people) established by the Constitution of the United States. Given the cult of personality Obama worshippers have tried to promote since he won the 2008 election, we can be forgiven for suspecting that the Narcissist in Chief shows such respect for monarchs because he aspires to be what George Washington wisely refused to become- King of the United States. Unlike Washington, of course, he has done nothing that remotely suggests he is worthy of such preferment. But also unlike Washington he appears to believe that ambition for power is the only qualification required. In this he resembles both Caesar and Napoleon, two historical figures who succeeded at the task Obama has undertaken- the destruction of a republican form of government in their respective countries.
As a matter of pure political calculation, however, one has to wonder at the outward appearance of stupidity involved in this latest insult to the people he’s supposed to represent. Even someone as blinded by his own self-image as Obama has to realize that his critics will pounce on this obviously deliberate reiteration of humiliated sovereignty.
I think he not only realizes this, he means to provoke it. Obama’s bow to the Saudi King was a reflexive expression of homage to a figure he revered on account of deeply inculcated religious feeling. It therefore revealed Obama’s allegiance to Islam. From his insane waste of American lives in Afghanistan to his literally fishy reaction to the Ft. Hood episode; from his shutdown of Guantanamo to his decision to offer terrorists the propaganda platform of a civilian trial in the very city they assaulted; from his surrender of U.S. economic sovereignty to his determined and obvious efforts to drive the U.S. to utter bankruptcy; Obama’s policies and actions are leading more and more Americans to question whether his true allegiance is to the Constitution of the United States and to the the people whose will and nationhood it represents.
This substantive issue of allegiance inevitably came to mind as people thought about the implications of his bow to the Saudi King. Given Saudi Arabia’s role in supporting the brand of Islamic fundamentalism that promotes the recruitment of Islamic terrorists like Major Hasan, these implications are intensely troubling. The bow to the Japanese Emperor is a deliberate ploy intended to take the focus away from the issue of religious and political allegiance and put it on formalities instead. The appearance of stupidity in the bow to Emperor Akihito covers the shrewdness of Obama’s real bow, which is in fact to the requirements of the continuing deception that hides his deep betrayal of his oath and of America’s trust.
