"Obama Who Mao Mao"

YouTube - The Rivingtons - Papa Oom Mow Mow President Obama is over in China after visiting Japan where he bowed down to the "Emperor of Japan" something that no American president has done in the past although President Bill Clinton gave a slight "head bob" if I remember correctly during his time as president but he didn't do the deep bend that President Obama did with "The Emperor". President Obama is quite a bit taller than "The Emperor" so maybe he felt by deeply bowing he could shake hands and look "The Emperor" in the eye. Or, maybe President Obama is a big "Star Wars" fan especially perhaps of the film character "Darth Vader" as I do recall a scene in one of the "Star Wars" movies where "Darth Vader" and "The Emperor" are together and "Darth Vader" is bowing to "The Emperor" and saying "Yes, (deep breath, deep breath) my master."

This song by "The Rivertons" "Papa Oom Mow Mow" (Click on the You Tube link) reminds me a little bit of President Obama's China trip. Apparently some of the Chinese vendors have printed up t-shirts which say "Obama Mao" and are selling them at the present time. Probably this "Rivertons" song could be modified by slightly changing the chorus lyrics to something like "Obama Who Mao Mao, Obama Who Mao Mao Mao, ..... Obama Who? Mao Mao, Obama Who Mao Mao Mao".

After all, "Birds of a feather flock together." One of President Obama's appointees or advisers, (or one of his Czars), I can't remember exactly who recently said that her two most influential people in her life as far as outlook and philosophy were "Mother Theresa and Mao Ze Tung". Mother Theresa lived a selfless life of service with the poor of Calcutta, India but Chairman Mao was responsible for at least 70 million deaths during his "cultural revolution".

Obama Obama Obama Who? (Mao Mao).
