Does the Obama administration think we're blind???
This is an insult to the American people. Liars really tick me off.
FACT: Barack Obama bowed when he greeted King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.
Anyone can see that.
The White House is denying that the president bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at a G-20 meeting in London, a scene that drew criticism on the right and praise from some Arab outlets.
"It wasn't a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he's taller than King Abdullah," said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
This Obama aide can't be serious! How utterly ridiculous!
King Abullah looks to be as tall as John McCain. I never saw the tall Obama do the same move when he shook McCain's hand.
It's a freaking bow! He bent at the waist and lowered his head!
The Washington Times called the alleged bow a "shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate" and said it violated centuries of American tradition of not deferring to royalty. The Weekly Standard, meanwhile, noted that American protocol apparently rules out bowing, or at least it reportedly did on the occasion of a Clinton "near-bow" to the emperor of Japan.
Interestingly, a columnist in the Saudi-backed Arabic paper Asharq Alawsat also took the gesture as a bow and appreciated the move.
"Obama wished to demonstrate his respect and appreciation of the personality of King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz, who has made one of the most important calls in the modern era, namely the call for inter-faith and inter-cultural dialogue to defuse the hatred, conflict and wars," wrote the columnist, Muhammah Diyab.
This is such insanity on the part of the Obama White House. Of course, it was a bow.
If this is how Obama greets shorter people, I want the White House to produce photos of him doing the same move to others. I want to see the evidence of Obama appearing to bow to Hillary Clinton. He's much taller than Hillary.
Where's the appearance of a bow?
The White House spin is absolutely pathetic.
It really isn't spin. It's a flat-out lie.
If that's not a bow, then what is Obama doing?
Is he doubling over in pain? Did he drop something? Is he admiring the rug?
Obama's pose is one of servility.
He looks like he's about to genuflect.
