White House Denies Obama Bow to Saudi King (Rewind - Lying then or Lying Now!)
associatedcontent.com ^ | April 09, 2009 | Mark Whittington

According to the Politico, an unnamed Obama aide is claiming that President Barack Obama did not actually bow to the Saudi King. But looking at the video, it seems to be a case if "Do you believe the White House or your lying eyes?"

"It wasn't a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he's taller than King Abdullah," the aide is quoted as saying, suggesting that President Obama was just bending over to maintain eye contact with the King and not, in fact,

But the video that accompanies the news stories clearly shows President Obama bowing before King Abdullah. Therefore, the White House appears to have forgotten the old political maxim, "When you are in a hole, stop digging."

The "explanation" has elicited derision throughout the blogosphere. Ed Morrissey at Hot Air noted that Barack Obama is taller than Queen Elizabeth but did not in fact stoop or bow to her. Kathyrn Jean Lopez at National Review Online quotes an emailer as saying, "I did not have 'salutational' relations with that man." The Weekly Standard complains that the mainstream media is, by and large, giving Barack Obama a pass for both his violation of protocol and custom and for his lame excuse of the same.

Unfortunately, in this age of the Internet and YouTube where a faux pas can be played over and over again by people without having to deal with the filter of the mainstream media, the bowing controversy is refusing to die.

Geez ... WE'VE GOT THE VIDEOS!!! 20 years ago you could do some pretty good denying ... but not today! Heck, I can put the video of it and the pictures of it on my site in 30 seconds ... and these people have the "audacity" to deny it happened. This isn't just denial ... this is a lie and we can prove it.

What an utter STUPID thing to claim in this age of video and multi-media.

This administration is like Kinder-care. -”We make up our OWN realities!”

He was taking a wide stance for the king, what came after that I prefer not to think about.

I think he was looking for a contact lens. He found it almost right away. It was all just an ill-timed coincidence.

Don’t EVERYONE always have to bend over to main eye contact with ‘shorter’ people?

Love it!

As I said on ohter threads, with his bow, he’s saying to the Japanese: “Forgive us for alll the destruction we caused at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. If I had been there, we could have negotiated a settlement.”

When he bows before Palin, he needs to get on his knees.

Obamonty Talkathon's Lying Circus' sidesplitting skit I Didn't Do It And You Can't Prove I Did!

Day after day, hour after hour the Lying Circus gang delivers the best ever satire of a presidential administration.

I am sure he is very familiar with that position :-)

I’ve got a feeling we are not going to have to wait that long. Something from his past will leak and ALL of America will turn away from him, forcing him to resign as a complete utter failure as well a fraud.
