Must be a muslim thing - one muzzie to another.
Folks got on to President Bush for the hand holding picture with the Saudi King, not understanding that this was a cultural sign of equals, like brothers. I’m sure the same media that mocked president Bush for his sign of equality with world leaders will not give Bambi an iota of criticism for his sign of subservience to the king.
“What is your bidding, my master?”
He probably bows to Soros as well.
Fist Bush...then Obama. What is wrong with American Presidents now a days. Metrosexuals big time (at least at that moment).
George Washington is likely cursing a blue streak over this.
Can’t take this guy anywhere...
He looks like he could also be kissing his ring.
0bama bows to his king of kings.
First, they have to be American Presidents. The TOTUS really shouldn’t count here or abroad. President has always been way above his pay grade.
Wish I could have been there to put my boot in his subservient butt.
He’s probably thanking him for the college funds.
Great! Our pres. bows down to the sand monkey who holds us hostage at the gas pump. Hey OBozo!...maybe you wouldn’t have to bow so much if did more domestic oil drilling!
Please stay away Odinga!
Just stealing a glance at his Dick Tracy teleprompter-watch.
And why wouldn’t he bow to the Queen?
Look at the guys in the back laughing at this idiot fool. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA. This is too funny.
Never did understand why people criticized GWB for holding the king’s hand. The man was past 80, it’s only human to offer a hand or an arm to someone who could be seriously injured by a single misstep, and more likely than a young person to make one.
Not to mention how common it is for people his age to have arthritis or other ailments that affect their getting-about.
Bowing is quite another matter. Hopefully 0bama is only vomiting or something else involuntary, but I wouldn’t put it past him to show undue respect.
I just pray that someone gets a video of this on Youtube. Pass this on to everyone you know. Was there ever any doubt that it was no slip when he spoke of “my Muslim religion?”
Saudi king looks like he has a hard-on.
He wasn’t bowing. He was showing...Moments earlier he had said to the king...”Barney Frank likes me in this position.”
And why wouldnt he bow to the Queen?
Because she’s not a Muslim with 20 yachts.
Seriously, he’s making all this up as he goes. There is no protocol for him, the great wonder of Obama.
“... If the GOP has any guts ...”
Is it even a question anymore???
Well...upon reading that idiot michelle grabbed the Queen of England around the waist and barry is out there falling all over himself to show how fawning he is to other world leaders...it finally hit me.
This is a case of two chosen highschool kids who each wrote a 50 word "essay" on why they want to be "governor for a day" (yes, of course they each cheated and took most if not all of their text from the internet). So...barry and michelle won the contest and were appointed as "governor for a day".
Then the dream becomes reality when we all realized that it wasn't "governor for a day", but president of the US, and that it wasn't for a day...but for four long years!!
These two idiots would be absolutely hillarious if it were not for the fact that they are bumblingly, ineptly, incompentently, stupidly, and wastefully ruining this country!
Somebody, please, send these two children back to highschool where they belong!
The thing no one is seeing is his yokel behavior insults Americans. He doesn’t care what anybody thinks of him. He’s going to act as he sees fit. This guy is way beyond his own vanity.
Funny I also felt that way about the clintons. Green Astro turf and all....
Zero isn’t worthy of bowing down and kissing my *ss. Period.
Reminds me of that scene in Shogun with Richard Chamberlain, where Toranaga and his cronies had Chamberlain bow, then Toranaga stepped over him and urinated on his back.
King Abdullah looks tickled pink at Obama’s submission...
Before the british the saudis were Sand Pirates/thieves..
Still are by culture and life style..
"Shine your shoes dere, boss?"
He bows down to Hodgie but gives the American people the finger...

World leaders wrangled Wednesday on how a London summit could fix the global economy as demonstrators attacked a bank in an anti-capitalist riot in the British capital. Demonstrators laid siege to the Bank of England and smashed the windows of a nearby bank that has become a symbol of the financial crisis rescue carried out by the British government which will be discussed at Thursdays Group of 20 summit in the city.

Check THIS out! Unbelievable!
Hell, he got on his knees for a coke snorting gay guy.
Exactly. Clearly everyone here seems to understand the "wrongness" of this, but can't see this in historic context. Ironically, anti-Monarchism is the root of America's sympathy for calls to soak the rich, for Populism.
An American President to bow to any monarch is akin to burning a flag.
At the opening ceremonies to the Berlin Olympic Games in 1936 the American team refused to follow the protocol of dipping the U.S. Flag as they passed in review by Adolf Hitler. Instead, they brought a disapproving frown from the Chancellor by merely removing their straw hats. There was a lot of frantic discussion about what American should do, since each had been raised to understand such basic protocol. When told what was expected, and what every national team was going to do, the team was in a real quandary.
Dipping the flag below that of any other, let alone allowing it to drag the ground, just was not an option.
A few decades ago this would have resulted in the sacking of the White House and an impeachment, and in short order.
The anti-monarchism in the Constitution is clear and deep and basic. The President's "no-big deal" gesture, in bowing to a foreign monarch, shows his ass to his real king - the American People. You can do one or the other but not both.
At least they are not holding hands.
Wonder if that smarmy jerk Jon Stewart will mention this on his “show’?
A video of Obama’s obeisance won’t be run once, let alone ad infinitum, on Letterman.
“And why wouldnt he bow to the Queen?”
Because the Queen does not rule over the holy places of Islam.
No American bows down to foriegn monarchs: we are born free and are their equals, by God. BO doesn't understand this. I wonder whose passport he's traveling under.
With those pistol grip ears, he should be very carful about bowing to anyone.... especially a guy that wears a dress.
