Skip to comments.NoMedia coverage of US President Obama's Bowing to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia

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.
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
