Punch Them in the Face

Upon meeting foreign heads of State just what exactly would Republicans prefer US Presidents to do who are presently losing their marbles about Obama's respectful bow in Japan? Presumably America should just give the rest of the world the finger and then bomb everybody. Oh, wait, probably that is what they pine for.

Though Obama did violate etiquette by both bowing and shaking his hand. Should we fault him for not being aware of that? I've never heard of a foreign leader visiting this country and getting his handshake/whatever a little mixed up. Just saying (though I agree that the right is being pretty ridiculous. Anyone who doesn't even have a password has no right to comment on something like how to politely address another foreign official).
