Obama's Bow: WWGWS (what would George Washington say?)

Will this do anything to blunt the teeth of those who delight in unreflectively criticizing Obama for everything and anything? Perhaps not, but its an interesting historical curiosity nonetheless: Apparently our first president, and founding father had the practice of bowing to his guests. Can Obama claim "minhag avoseinu?" Might that put an end to some of the nonsense?
