Skip to comments.The Obama Bow: Just For the Record...
Posted on 04/08/2009 2:57:02 PM PDT by Reaganesque
The White House today said that Mr. Obama's bow was due to the fact that Obama is taller than the Saudi king and he bent down to shake the king's hand with both of his. The video on YouTube shows differently so, I thought the relevant frame of video should be given it's own thread.
Either Mr. Obama has grown a third hand or the "unnamed White House source" is a total liar.
Video link. Stop the video at :05 and :12.
The bow happens before the double handed hand-shake.
They’re FOS on this just like they are on everything else.
Like I’d really trust anything that comes out of this muslim’s administration.

Which did you mean?
Moslem usurper alert >>>
There is a moslem usurper in the white house.
He is busy usurping, being moslem, and dismantling every american tradition, company, and principle he can get his moslem hands on.
That’s TOTUS, not Potus.(teleprompter of the US)
Today, Newt said on Hannity’s radio show, that Bush too bowed to the Saudi king.
Now I saw a video where it looked like Bush was bowing but in reality he was bent over so the king could put some sort of metal on him. Could that be what Newt was referring to? Is there another instance where Bush is bowing?
Newt ALSO said that Bush KISSED the Saudi king. Now “kissing” can mean a lot of things, like those air kisses people give. It’s not the same thing as bowing with one person bowing and the other NOT.
If BOTH people bow to each other, a la the Japanese, that’s considered acceptable. Could it be a mutual bow that Newt refers to? Did Bush ever really bow, like Obama did never mind that ridiculous WH lie?
I do know that Bush held hands with the Saudi king and that was a damn shameful sight byte. Still, it was BOTH people holding hands and just looking dumb.
In the case of Obama it was the American president, and the American president ONLY, doing the bowing.
Does Newt Gingrich know what the hell he’s talking about?
Looked more like a curtsy to me - extended his right foot back while dipping - he forgot to cross it behind his other leg though.
The White House is really trying to back-pedal, full-speed, on this one... :-)
Of course he wasn’t bowing!! He was leaning down to pick his nose with his left knee. Most islammers do it that way, yes?
It was an outright genuflect.
We witnessed Hussein’s only act of humility, and it was before a Muslim King.
I heard that too and I think he may have meant that in a more figurative way for Bush. That said, President Bush may have done so. I don’t know one way or the other but it is certain that he did all but bow physically to the Saudis.
He was probably bowing down to get a look at what was under his kilt....oh....wait.....
Full of Shi+
The telepromptor made him do it
obama ur a freakin liar!!
Fill of shut.
