Question mark in the headline because I cant tell for sure without knowing what words passed between them, but it certainly looks like a bow. Skip ahead to 0:50 and judge for yourself. Like the boss says, whether this is more or less nauseating than Bush holding hands with his pal Abdullah while they went for a garden scroll is immaterial. The fact remains that having to co-exist with the Saudis doesnt mean having to respect them. When they stop whipping old ladies for having unrelated men in their homes, maybe then we can reconsider observing the niceties of protocol.

Showing his subservience to Islam.
Bowing to his master?
Showing his subservience to Islam.”
Born a Muslim.
Educated as a Muslim in Indonesia.
Will die a Muslim.
Protocol doesn't call for Heads of independent states to bow to other Heads of State. Heads of vassal states would be expected to bow to the Head of the dominant state.
Remember how the Left gave Bush grief, for the respect he showed to Arab leaders?
And W. never even bowed!
Unbelievable. Simply amazing.
If Bush ever bowed to a Saudi, the wingnut libtards would be up in arms over oil, blah, blah, blah...
Here’s their man doing it like it’s second nature.
He just wanted to thank him for sending those 15 terrorists for the 9/11 jihad.
Anyone know what they’re saying about this at DU?
What did Obama say to the Saudi king? “My liege!”?
Obama is buffoonish!
Don’t forget, Obama’s paypal Rezko was hooked up to this
Saudi moneyman Nadhmi Auchi who lives in London. Shortly before Obama closed his Rezko-sponsored mansion deal, Rezko received a “loan” of $3.5 million from Auchi—money that was apparently never repaid.
Does Abdullah own Obama? Has Auchi ever been contacted by the FBI or DOJ about Rezko?
This bowing-scraping of a US President is not in the same league.
This is so embarrassing to watch obozo grovel.
When a King holds your LEFT hand in Saudi Arabia? That is a HUGE gesture of Bedouin respect as the "top dog" is the one that holds hands with his left hand.
I’m afraid you are right...
Just as a US ship doesn’t dip the flag to a passing ship of another nation, the President should not bow to a foreign head of state, be it the Queen of England or some desert oil sheik.
The big one coming is when he tries to subject us all the the head of the UN!
