Photoshop fun: President O-bow-ma caves to Boehner

The kowtower-in-chief first earned his “O-bow-ma” moniker on this blog in November 2009, when he genuflected before the Japanese Emperor. Before that, he was scraping the floor in front of Saudi King Abdullah. The Apology Tour has been around the world and back.

But August 31, 2011 marks the first time I can recall that we’ve seen President Obama stoop before a GOP opponent.

It’s a milestone moment. Taste the acquiescence:

President Obama acquiesced to a request from Speaker John A. Boehner on Wednesday to move the date of his proposed address to a joint session of Congress to Thursday Sept. 8, after Mr. Boehner all but rejected Mr. Obama’s request to speak next Wednesday.

Mr. Obama had asked to deliver a much anticipated speech outlining his proposals to boost employment and the economy on Sept. 7 — the same night as a scheduled Republican presidential debate, as it happens.

Lesson for GOP: Push back fast and hard enough, and the wobbly weeble in the White House can and will fall down.

More, please.
