Just a reminder of one moment in the history of the guy who said this:

Dick Cheney is blasting Barack Obama for plunging the presidency to a new low -- by bowing to the Japanese emperor....

"There is no reason for an American president to bow to anyone," Cheney complained to the "Our friends and allies don't expect it, and our enemies see it as a sign of weakness." ...

Yeah, right, Dick -- you'd never show deference to a foreign leader, would you?

(Date: March 21, 2008.)

There was plenty of deference of this kind in the Bush years, as you probably recall, but mostly the president got to do it himself.
