Now, hillbillies! Donít believe your lyiní eyes. (Obama's Bow-gate)
Rachel Lucas Website ^ | April 9, 2009 | Rachel Lucas

We have always been at war with Eastasia. We have always been at war with Eastasia. We have always been at war with Eastasia.

The White House is denying that the president bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at a G-20 meeting in London, a scene that drew criticism on the right and praise from some Arab outlets.

“It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah,” said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

I can see why this aide wanted to be anonymous, otherwise he’d probably have a new internet meme named after him, something that means “outrageously blatant liar.” Even the biggest Obama-lover cannot possibly view this video and conclude that he didn’t bow, and you would literally have to be BLIND not to see that the “two hands” thing is simply f*ckin’ NOT TRUE.

(VIDEO AT LINK)

You know who else Obama is taller than? Queen Elizabeth. Did he feel compelled to bow to her for that reason? Nopes. You know who else he’s taller than? Probably 90% of the population, including most of the other world leaders at that summit. Has anyone ever seen him bow at the waist to a full 90 degrees to anyone other than King Abdullah? Um no.

This is so far beyond “spin” that it’s making me dizzy.

I especially love how some of his fans’ only response to this is “But! But! George Bush held hands with the same king! What about that? HUH?!?! ARGHGHGHG!!!” A$$holes. Holding hands is a gesture of friendship in Saudi, not a sign of subservience. Oh and by the way, if I recall correctly, conservatives were right pissed off when that happened.

And again, my main point is, if Chimpholster Monkeybubba Bush had done this, it’s all you’d hear about for weeks. The entire Left would have sh*t their pants, put on a new pair, sh*t those pants, and repeated this process for about a week.

(In all cautious fairness, though, is it really a “White House denial” when it’s just an anonymous aide? Honest question; wouldn’t want to get all flippy and then find out it’s a hoax or a “misstatement” or whatnot. Because it’s really so fantastically stupid and dishonest that it almost does seem like a hoax.)

A free black man bowing to another man with a sheet on his head.

The NAACP should be beside themselves.

When Gibbs denied that Obama had bowed, that pretty much made it official White House policy.

Sorry, written in the style of an immature moonbat acting like a petulant 13 year old. Stricken expletives are a crutch for somebody who cannot craft good prose.

Why doesn’t some enterprising young Jimmy Olson ask the White Hut for clarification...he can squeeze it in while he’s waiting to interview the Governor of Alaska’s daughter’s ex-boyfriend’s relatives about how much alone time they get with the Governor of Alaska’s daughter’s baby.

Well it isn’t anonymous anymore. Press Sec Gibbs was asked “was it a bow or not?” and he flat out denied it. Video of Gibbs’ lie here: http://feedyouradhd.blogspot.com/2009/04/robert-gibbs-moment-o-day-bowgate.html

The teleprompter is at fault. King Abdullah is a great archer. Obama’s gift to him was a set of archery equipment (Kmart $29.95). Well, Obama had forgotten to bring it to him so the teleprompter was trying to remind him to get the “bow” as in “bow and arrows”. Unfortunately there wasn’t a pronunciation guide, so Obama bowed instead of getting the bow. There’s a special spot under the bus for that teleprompter. Fortunately, they brought 12 so they had a lot of spares who now know to use the full term “bow and arrows” to avoid mistakes like this.

What you don’t understand is it was an optical illusion, obama remained in a fixed position, the entire rest of the world pivoted forward to the messiah. it only appears the other way because the camera was fixed to the floor, Its kind of like that stunt where Fred Astaire dances on the walls and ceiling of the room.

especially since the aide never really says what it was instead of a bow.

I posted on another thread and it seemed to strike a chord, so I'll say it again:

Every one of his lies is somebody's last straw.
