Skip to comments.NoMedia coverage of US President Obama's Bowing to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia
Posted on 04/05/2009 6:56:08 PM PDT by hatfieldmccoy
During the G20 Summit in London, US President Barack Obama bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. The mainstream TV and print media in the US have not produced any stories of this event. Coverage of this story has been limited to blog sites and non-US news outlets.
That Republican might well get my vote!
The Link is NOT WIKIPEDIA is Breitbart!
Of course they are going to quash anything as bad as that. The POTUS does not bow to ANYONE except his wife and his God. OTOH, the TOTUS bows and scrapes to every two bit, tin horn dictator in the world.
You have a talent for putting words in a person’s mouth. You got Rahm to a T.
That’s the reason why everyone is downloading the image because the web “masters” will erase it to protect their boy.
Erase it, last week I already emailed it to people. And one friend said I was making it up and should stop sending out illegal email. I said is it illegal? Not yet.
No reply on that one. In fact no reply from any Obama supporters. Online I’ve seen them complain about Bush’s relationship with the Saudis. That’s the extent of their defense of Obama. It’s hilarious. And yes, the media is ignoring it like it never happened. They are so completely loyal to the self-anointed 0ne.
Don’t get banned, just give us a link...
They haven’t called you racist, yet? That’s amazing..
We will just have to do the job the MSN won't do. (Laugh at this prophylactic poster boy while its still legal, click on the pictures for a huge teleprompter gag thread)
I thought I used enough **s to meet language guidelines. Admin did not agree. Hey it was a cool post!
If you ask me, it looks like he was half bending his knee in almost impulse/habit and caught himself midway through.
Also, it was supposed to be custom to kiss the hand of the Keeper of Mecca, even though a few years ago King Abdul said he wanted that practice stopped.
This was another Freudian slip just like the “My muslim faith.. I mean my Christian faith”. And just like in that instance, the media didn’t just not report the flub, but fed him the line to correct himself.
The media (FOX included) have decided for whatever reason, a video of the President of the United States bowing in submission to the King of Saudi Arabia in not to be shown in the United States.
I'd like to know what the hell is going on with that?
I believe that the MSM may be afraid for Zer0’s well being if the video of his bow becomes headline news.
There is a video I saw that looks like he was trying to kiss his ring.
Not to worry, Blowbama is just showing the King how he plans to have his American subjects bow to him shortly.
“They havent called you racist, yet? Thats amazing..”
Actually no one would try that card. They are pretty much afraid to even debate issues so that actually is not even a remote chance. Especially since one guy is an Obama supporter in LA and I argued with him years back that Spike Lee’s movie, “Do the Right Thing” was a great flick. He argued years ago that it had no redeeming (re: black) characters. I disagreed entirely with the premise. Years later he admitted that he was completely boneheaded about that.
And he’s said similar about Miles Davis and John Coltrane. I do expect it will take less time for him to see the light on Obama. When Obama sides with muslims against the West, I think he’s going to go nuts.
Just an example to your comment that I thought you’d find interesting.
I think it might get put on the air on Monday morning with the morning shows. Didn’t this happen over the weekend? I think both Obama’s are getting very bad advice from their personal staff...Hillary too. Of course, the Obama’s are pretty new to this type of stuff...Hillary should know better as she has been involved in this type of stuff for 17 years.

There was: THE G20 BUSH SNUB THAT WASN'T...as reported. (Bush).
I remember when President Bush held the visiting feeble Abdullahs hand when the then-Crown Prince to steady him, and much was made of that as well. In the grand scheme of things..a bows importance, a courteous hand held, is not equal to trillions of taxpayer money spent or news on the success of our troops. We sweat the small stuff...which conveniently takes focus off the important issues.
"This is precisely the kind of sniping that would drive conservatives crazy when it was President Bush in office. Rather than transcending this sort of stuff, they instead choose to embrace it," says Kevin Sullivan at Real Clear World's The Compass blog.
At WashingtonPost.com today, Post White House reporter ...
|"Michael A. Fletcher: I'm not sure what the etiquette is for such greetings, but I'm sure the president was only trying to convey respect to the leader of a nation with which the US has a crucial -- and complicated -- relationship. Remember some years ago when President Bush touched cheeks with and held the hand of a Saudi monarch during a visit to his Texas ranch? Another sign of respect. I would not make too much of it."|
The bloggers or dot.coms pick up the slack ..that's their job while the MSM on a Big news day, finds it not worthy to be at the top of "the stack".
John Batchelor is talking about this now on KFI out of Los Angeles.
Nah, according to the White House press corps, Obama was cleaning the floor.
i knew the major news websites had no mention of the event... but what really shocked me was what just found out. i went to the drudge headline archives and did a search on ‘obama bow’ and came up with nothing
did they get to drudge as well? say it isn’t so.
i think we need to start calling tv stations and ask them why they haven’t aired the story
Yeah, the libs were saying that when the photo came out. It is photoshopped. It is a fake. Then when the video surfaced, you don't hear a peep. Follow up to your friends with the video :
It seems to me that that photo is more damning without being photoshopped, with the teleprompter and all.
Us Merkins don’t take kindly to no bowin’.
It’s sorse that you thought
The “Bow”-— The “One” gets “None”
Sorse? It’s Sorse? NOT SORSE!!!! OMG that even Worse that Worse
correction---OMG that is even Worse than Worse
I think it's time for bed there Hatfield....
we really should get these videos on torrents or something that will be tough to eradicate
Is he really bowing, or just looking at something. It looks like the others all around him are looking, too. Look again at that picture.
My bad - I just saw the video - that SOB!!! How DARE he!
Is he THAT stupid??! Doesn’t he realize he is the US President!! He IS an absolute joke! Or, should I say, JERK!
I already have it saved to my HD, so it won’t disappear
obommie BENT HIS KNEE and BOWED to mooselimb king. It’s not debatable.
The Kenyan Clown cares nothing about the well-being of the United States or the responsibilities of the job that he campaigned for.
Instead, he is intent on destroying our country: he wants to destroy our military, he wants to see our social fabric rent, and he would be delighted to see all Americans make the same obeisance to the Muslim world that he made on our behalf.
That’s a bow.
He bowed TWICE, in fact.
