IBD - The best editorial page you will ever find:

Investor's Business Daily is a superlative editorial page and in the opinion of Common Cents is the best editorial page you will find.  IBD exposes common sense, market driven, easy to read editorials that you will love.  IBD should be required reading for every American!
  • Fight or Tease:  Afghanistan: Troop morale is plummeting as they wait — and wait — for a war policy. If the president has changed his mind and believes Afghanistan is not worth winning, his duty is to say so.
  • Deficit Doves: Suddenly, the White House announces it will focus with laserlike intensity on cutting the federal budget deficit in the coming year. And no, that's not the punch line to a very bad joke.
  • Status Quo - Better than reform: Lower costs and better coverage — those are the promises of the Democrats' PelosiCare. The reality, however, is quite different, as a new report makes clear.
  • For Whom the Bell Tolls:  Shortly after 9/11, there was a lot of talk about how no one would ever hijack an American airliner ever again — not because of new security arrangements but because an alert citizenry was on the case: We were hip to their jive.
  • Asian Cold Water on Global Warming:  If there's good news from Saturday's APEC summit, it's Asia's ninja blow to a global climate pact in Copenhagen. The dynamic region recognized the economy-killer for what it was and refused to commit suicide.
  • Deepest Bow is Reserved for World Opinion:  In the string of amazing decisions made during the first year of the Obama administration, nothing seems more like sheer insanity than the decision to try foreign terrorists, who have committed acts of war against the United States, in federal court, as if they were American citizens accused of crimes.

NO AMERICAN IS SUPPOSED TO BOW TO ANYONE! NO ONE.. He is a disgrace as a president. We fought a war so we could be free and NOT have to bow down to royalty EVER again. NEVER! American presidents bows to no one. So don’t you Liberal asswipes give us that BS about Bush, it’s always about Bush isn’t it! Did Dick Cheney BOW to the Emperor of Japan when he was there? NO, he shook hands. But you didn’t post that picture did you!
Why do you libs always have to rush to this creeps defense every time he screws up?
In fact NO Head of State is supposed to bow to another! Remember when Barack Obama bowed before the King of Saudi Arabia at the G-20 summit in London last April? Even though the bow was captured by still and video photographers, the White House denied that it had taken place. "It wasn't a bow," But it WAS a bow, as was this one. . I lived in Japan for about 9 months and in all my time there I never saw a grown man bow so deeply to another man as we see in the Obama-Akihito photo and I also never saw such an one-sided gesture (one party bowing deeply and the other not at all). Then again, I never saw anything but Japanese subjects bowing before the deity. In essence, then, this Obama bow before the Emperor is likened to a subject bowing before a god. Any way you try to spin that, it's not good for America's image abroad. I don't care how much Obama wants to "repair" our so-called tainted image. How long must we endure this disgrace posing as the U.S. President? Ane why does Obama have to wear a Muslim tunic or a MAO outfit? I for one am disgusted by these pathetic displays every time he goes out of the country. I guess this is the “Change” he was talking about!
Or maybe he mistook the Emperor for George Soros.
Well at least he didn't give the Emperor a fist bump or a highfive, or ever worse a chest bump.
