    With a contempt for the American people that seems to know no bounds, the Obama White House now challenges even it's most loyal sychophants to suspend disbelief and not believe their own eyes. The White House's explanation for Obama's "bow" to the Saudi King is that the king is much shorter than Obama. Apparently, based on Obama's deep bow from the waist, the King is about 3 feet tall.

    Rather than apologizing to the American people for his disgraceful obesience to a foreign monarch (he could have claimed jet lag or abdominal cramps) he is attempting to brazen it out with lies. I ask our liberal friends, does it look like a bow to you? I wonder if we'll get any yes or no answers, or just a bunch of "But Bush did...."


    White House Claims Obama Didn't Bow to King

    Barack Obama's White House says the president did not bow to the Saudi King when they met during the recent G-20 meeting in London.

    If you think he did, you're just believing your lying eyes.

    So reports Politico's Ben Smith Wednesday.

    "It wasn't a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he's taller than King Abdullah," an anonymous Obama aide told Politico.

    The aide made the assertion despite a video showing Obama bending almost to a 45 degree angle as he met King Abdullah.

    And Politico notes that the Arab press have reported on the "bow" — with favorable reviews.

    The occasion may mark the first time a U.S. president has bowed to a foreign potentate.

    By the way, if you want to see how your eyes lie, take a look at the video of Obama "not" bowing to the Saudi king:

    The King of Saudi Arabia is not just the King, he is also the guardian of the the two holist sites in Islam, Mecca and Medina. He is the gauardian of the faith and all Muslims bow to him in reverance to that position.

    As to President Bush Kissing the Saudi monarch. A kiss on the cheek and the holding of hands is a very sincere form of respect in thier culture. It is only done between equals. It is not a sign of deference. A bit Brokeback to western eyes but not a big deal in thier world. But to bow is a very deferential expression and is recognition of the others higher position.

    Thanks MM I knew you would know for sure. Don't forget that it is okay for Muslims to lie for the sake of Islam and Allah.
    Let us not forget that after a summer "vacationing" in Pakistan and Afghanistan, Barry Soetoro changed his name to Barack Hussein Obama.

    Anyone recall that Cassius Clay became Mohammad Ali, and Lew Alcindor changed his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar after converting to Islam?
