No Joke: Fox "News" Polled Obama's Bow & Guess What? A Majority of REPUBLICANS Support It!

Remember this post from last week?

Fox "News" Attacks Obama Over a Bow Other Presidents Have Made

Presidents Richard Nixon bowed to the Emperor Hirohito of Japan -- the Emperor who attacked Pearl Harbor on Decemeber 7, 1941, dragging this country into WWII! On U.S. soil no less.

Dwight D. Eisenhower bowed to France's Charles De Gaull.

President Bush not only held hands with, but he kissed Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah.

All of that that didn't stop Fox "news" and Karl Rove from attacking President Obama for showing similar respect for customs.

From DKTV:
Well, according to a new poll, it turns out even Republicans disagree with Fox (and Rover) on this idiocy -- and it was a Fox "news" poll (via Greg Sargent)!
Fox News Polls Obama’s Bow, Finds Majority Of Republicans Support It

The internals of the new Fox News poll show the network actually polled Obama’s bow — and perhaps didn’t get the desired answer:

When the president of the United States is traveling overseas, do you think it is appropriate for him to bow to a foreign leader if that is the country’s custom or is it never appropriate for the president to bow to another leader?

Yes, bow when it is the proper custom: 67%
No, it is never appropriate: 26%

Even more interesting, a majority of Repubicans, 53%, says the Bow is appropriate, too, versus only 40% who said it isn’t.
