3. Sometimes it's all about the signifigance you impart to the act:

To wit, which of these acts allegedly destroys America's standings in the world and which is just one of the cutest things you've ever seen?



As was pointed out here, all presidents bow to foreign leaders and, most importantly, "Following cultural conventions is not submission."

I don't have a problem with bowing to foreign leaders but I really hate any US President bowing to a member of royalty. I find it extremely distasteful. But apparently presidents are going to keep doing it.

So while it is nice to shoot those mouth-breathers pictures of Bush getting ready to play tonsil-hockey with the Saudi king, I suppose the even more correct answer is "Bowing or following cultural conventions does not make a president submissive to a foreign leader." I don't like it, but if there's a correct answer that's probably it.
