Barack Obama is known for bowing to heads of state from around the planet.
But I've seen no film or news report of him meeting, greeting, and bowing to Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, in town recently to dicuss a range of matters with the White House.
But rather than an Obama bow, the Jewish prime minister was treated to a series of Obama snubs.
How do we explain this mystery?
Perhaps BB neglected to bow to Obama, unlike NBC's Brian Williams. So maybe Obama needed to teach the prime minister a lesson in civility.
Perhaps Obama thought BB was a Tea Partier who affirms the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence. Can't be seen bowing to an American patriot.
Such a provocative act might be seen as incendiary, an incitement to right-wing violence of the kind fair-minded observers have long associated with the likes of Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and other racists, prudes, Nazis, and caucasians.
Whatever the explanation, rest assured that Obama is right and that whoever objects or questions his authority is wrong. Yep, it's great to have an infallible president who is never, ever wrong about anything (as is called for in the living Constitution).
This is the man called by history and fate to heal America and heal the world. He knows just when to bow to others and when to tell them to sit down, shut up, and go home.
