Dick Cheney blasted President Obama today for showing weakness when he bowed to Japan's Emperor Akihito. There is no reason for an American president to bow to anyone, the former vice president told Politico.com. "Our friends and our allies don't expect it, and our enemies see it as a sign of weakness," he added. "In our day we would hold hands with a guy and French kiss him if we wanted to show respect. Then we would go back to the hotel and rent "The Prince of Tides" and just cuddle".
