Obama bows in obeyance to King Saud but not the Queen of England

Obama Bows in obeyance to the King of Saudi Arabia. Seems that Obama has more respect for the King of Saudi Arabi than he does for the Queen of England. Surely he did not give the King an IPod, but something more in line with diplomatic protocol.

Obama bows down to Saudi King (updated) Clarice Feldman I am quite certain that this is not the protocol, and is most unbecoming a President of the United States.

Update: See Miss Manners on the protocol. Americans do not bow to foreign monarchs because that act signified the monarch's power over his subjects.

Here is the protocol from the Queen of England's website -- which applies even to her own subjects:

"The Queen meets thousands of people each year in the UK and overseas. Before meeting Her Majesty, many people ask how they should behave. The simple answer is that there are no obligatory codes of behaviour - just courtesy.

However, many people wish to observe the traditional forms of greeting.

For men this is a neck bow (from the head only) whilst women do a small curtsy. Other people prefer simply to shake hands in the usual way.

On presentation to The Queen, the correct formal address is 'Your Majesty' and subsequently 'Ma'am'. "

Sorry,
I screwed up. Tried to post the photo too, but it didn’t take. Guess I’m not computer savvy enough.

Who would expect obama to bow down to some old white honky woman?

On the other hand—the ruler of a rich muslim country—whole ‘nother deal.

Obama, clearly, is an evil man.

His supporters want this. They want us all bowing to the Saudi King.

No President of the US should bow down to any foreign leader. If anything they should bow to us. We have save much of the world over the years of our existence and we should never show subservient to anyone.

Or you can simply greet the English Queen by saying, Obamessiah style, 'Your Typical White Personness."

Roman Catholic JFK didn’t kiss the Pope’s ring when he visited him in 1963, since he was meeting him as a head of state, and not as a Catholic.

That’s Catholics—I don’t know how these other folks operate......

"The Naval Officer, as an Officer of the United States under Title X, USC, is prohibited from bowing to any head of state or member of a foreign royal family. The proper way to render respect in such a situation is to remain covered and render the hand salute in a sharp manner from the position of attention before moving on."

The last U.S. President who didn't (literally) kiss Saudi ass was Reagan. But I don't remember any of the Presidents bowing to them.

Blacks have always been racist and hated whites.

Google the web for racism and you'll see it's virtually all black hate. That's what elected Zero in the first place.

It's the 1930s all over again and the innocents, we, refuse to open our eyes.

Muslin is a cotton fabric.

I suppose if you cut it into strips you could tie a bow.

LOL, evil, in this case no. I would attribute it to plain old stupidity. This guy is such a flaming light weight, an almost total screw-up product of affirmative action. Yet, our equally stupid and incompetent press will puff him or either hide the story of who really inhabits the WH.

"obeyance" I think the word we're looking for here is "obesiance". obeisance o-bei-sance   /oʊˈbeɪsəns, oʊˈbi-/ Pronunciation [oh-bey-suhns, oh-bee-] –noun 1. a movement of the body expressing deep respect or deferential courtesy, as before a superior; a bow, curtsy, or other similar gesture. 2. deference or homage: The nobles gave obeisance to the new king.

Salami

Salami is cured sausage, fermented and air-dried.
Historically, salami has been popular among Italian peasants
because it can be stored at room temperature for periods of up
to a year, supplementing a possibly meager or inconsistent supply of fresh meat.

No that is how Soth African Muslims show respect to the Arabia shieks. It’s either that or they are put under the yoke and made slaves.
There again haven’t we all been made slaves of the oil rich Arabian arabs.
You do know that the first slaves sold to the English were sold by Arabian slave masters.

Obama bowed to the Queen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYLuLEfVNow

OBAMA BOWED BECAUSE Her Majesty presented Mr. Obama with his Kenyan birth certificate from Mombassa hospital that shows all the facts of his birth and, most importantly, that Barack Hussein Obama Seotero is not a native born American citizen, but a Subject of the Crown by way of his Kenyan father's British Colonial citizenship.

Her Majesty then gave the usurper his orders and he will comply or be exposed as the fraud he certainly is.

He's not a "natural born citizen",

has he “attended” church yet since he ascended to office?

First, this whole thing with the bow has had me sick to my stomach all day. It is either shamefully ignorant or shamefully arrogant in the face of the American people. I am not sure which with Obama anymore. But, the whole world is laughing.

As to your question about Obama attending church...as of yet, no. He has been receiving spiritual counseling (so it is reported) privately or by phone by various ministers. How that helps his daughters' spirituality I can't imagine. They have already been so indoctrinated at Wright's hate- white-Americans church I guess he doesn't want them to have God's word. As to Michelle, her anger most all the time, and her in-your-face behavior only demonstrates that she is a lost cause to spirituality and true Christian behavior. These two people have had a chip on their shoulders for ages. They are not about to change now. So I guess their girls will grow up feeling much the same. Getting elected President has not made them thankful, humble, or even accepting. It has only furthered their attempts at causing more division in this country and play "get-back," for any injustices they felt they have suffered, intended or not.
