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.
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'. "
Americans do not bow to any earthly human! Protocol be damned!
I screwed up. Tried to post the photo too, but it didn’t take. Guess I’m not computer savvy enough.
It’s a Muslim thing...
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.
Or you can simply greet the English Queen by saying, Obamessiah style, 'Your Typical White Personness."
0 is a punk, a puke.
A simple handshake wasn’t enough for the millions sent to buy his election.
I hope all the libs that got this dufus in the white house are happy!
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......

That’s his peeps. I guess he respects how barbaric they are. The next guy up for the throne is a real hardliner.
is a muslin required to “bow” to a muslim king?
You may have hit on something there, MG!
Looks more like he dropped something - but maybe I’m just can’t deal.
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.
Maybe Obama is tired of kissing Michelles behind at home?
has he “attended” church yet since he ascended to office?
“secret handshake”? rock/paper/scissors?
who’s the dude on the “one’s” right side?
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.
looks like he has just created the first campaign ad for Palin-Jindal ‘12
1. A ceremonious act of deference or obeisance, especially a low bow performed while placing the right palm on the forehead.
2. A respectful ceremonial greeting performed especially in Islamic countries.
tr. & intr.v. sa·laamed, sa·laam·ing, sa·laams
To greet with or perform a salaam.
[Arabic salm, peace, salaam, from salima, to be safe; see lm in Semitic roots.]
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.
Please tell me he didn’t do the “as-salaam alaykum” thing.
Thanks for the English lesson. It’s been a long time between my schooling and now.
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.
Slavery in the Islamic world still exists and we should of been drilling for our own oil a long time ago.
“With a perfect accent.”
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",
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.
can’t imagine what “Sunday school” was like in the good Rev. Wright’s church.
We have witnessed Hussein’s first display of humility, and it was before a muslim dictator.
If it was plain ol’ stupidity, why did he bow and scrape ONLY to the Muslim Saudi king, while dissing Queen Elizabeth?
