Why did Obama bow to the Saudi King?

If you have not watched the video yet, please do:

I think that you would have to be a hard-core Obama supporter to convince yourself that the President did not bow to the Saudi monarch.  Now watch the Obamas meet the Queen of England:

The Obama team responded by saying it was the result of nothing more than the fact that Mr Obama is taller than the unelected Saudi leader and had to bend over to shake his hand.  Watch the video of our President with the Queen again.  She is certainly shorter than King Abdullah.

I submit that the Obamas’ interactions with the Queen contrast sharply with Mr Obama’s obvious deference for the Saudi Leader.  I saw a warmth and reverential body language with the Saudi leader that Mr Obama did not show with the Queen.

You can draw your own conclusions.

  1. Already kicked this one around on liberal sites. Liberal “excusists” say since the Obama’s are not “subjects” of the Queen, they were not bound by decorum, tradition or courtesy to “bow” or “curtsy” to the Queen. I guess that doesn’t apply to Kings of the Muslim persuasion!

    I know what it is. President Bush probably had a secret deal with the Oil Rich Saudis declaring us an honorary subject of the Saudi Kingdom and therefore the Obama’s were obligated to bow because of that evil, nefarious President Bush.

    The long fingers of Bush’s corrupt administration continue to lend excuse to President Obama’s Administration….that is if you are blind enough, naive enough. Or a big enough “myrmidon”. (Love it!) 🙂

  2. Unbelievable. Can the right get any more desperate in their attacks on Obama? I don’t think so.

    You’re criticizing Obama for a bow to the Saudi Kins when the moron who occupied the Oval Office for the last 8 years was bed with the Saudis.

    Hey Publius and bigdaddy, did you criticize Bush when he flew out the entire bin Laden family on September 11? Just imagine if Obama would do something like that. You guys would be forming lynching gangs and Fixed News would be promoting them.

  3. You missed the point. If it wasn’t an issue, why did they lie about it? President Obama bowed to the Saudi King. His representatives lied about it. Neither he nor Michelle extended the same courtesy to the Queen. And on your site, you defended it as they were not subjects of the Crown and weren’t supposed to bow.

    Personally, I make nothing of it beyond why did they feel compelled to lie.

    And man…..listen. I know it may be hard for you to comprehend as you may have to divert your irrational hatred somewhere else. But President Bush is the FORMER President. Let your man stand on his own merit.
