Obama bows down to Saudi King

Clarice Feldman

I am quite certain that this is not the protocol, and is most unbecoming a President of the United States.

bowing down to Islamist monarch

I think I read somewhere that Obama and Michelle have employed some women they knew who worked with the campaign who are handling the White House duties like protocol, etc. They got rid of the staff members who actully knew what they were doing in this regard (and others, such as gifts, etc.) and put five inexperienced women in their place. It appears they are no more knowledgeable than the Obamas - prolly from the Chicago gang area where manners don’t exist.

This trip has been full of mistakes and has shown that they have no class and yet the media are not reporting most of these mistakes and neither are they showing the bowing to the king of Saudi

A Moslem, even a lying closet Moslem, is supposed to bow to principalities in Islam, didn’t you know?

Holding hands, hand shaking are both the acts of EQUALS. A BOW is an act of SUBMISSION and/or SUBSERVANCE! I didn’t care for Bush’s stroll with the King that much myself, but the two acts are in NO WAY comparable! What do you think would have happened to you in the middle ages (A time the Saudi’s still live in by the way.) If you walked up to your sovereign and shook their hand instead of bowing? Does the term “OFF WITH THEIR HEAD” come to mind?

Obama take note: Many world leaders are pretending to like you because that will keep you off-guard. You are so needy, and they know it and are playing into your emotional dysfunctions. Do you think that in all the thousands of years of history, foreign leaders have not seen incompetent people like you who are dependent on praise because they are actually unable to be effective leaders? You must have attention, so they are willing to play your game while these people are really laughing behind your back. Watch out, many are planning to stab you once you have let down your guard. You are just too dumb and too narcissistic to realize it. Attention is your drug. And all this praise and friendliness, while you cowtow to them, is a rouse to make you feel good, but it is really to make you unsuspecting and vulnerable. Dumb, dumb Obama!

This is worth repeating.

Does that mean obama should have put his own hand on his forehead or what when he performed the low bow?

In the youtube next post after yours, it was clear that another man to zero's right was stepping up with his hand outstretced to the king, the king appeared to be meeting the man's hand, but zero went in for a block, grabbed the kings hand and took it down with him to kiss it, surprising the king and the fellow who was left there with an empty hand...but standing straight, like everyone else.

I've seen better manners at 75% off tables @ Thanksgiving Day Sales.

I know that I heard Michelle insisted on picking the gifts herself, much like her wardrobe. Don’t know how true that rumor is either, but it definitely wouldn’t surprise me either way (Michelle herself, or their campaign staffers). The are both narcissists who believe they know best on EVERYTHING...

As for the “Chicago Gang Area”, some could argue that gang members KNOW protocols when greeting fellow gang leaders... They definitely wouldn’t be BOWING to each other! LOL

To the Saudi King: “I bow at your feet, your Majesty.”

“Does that mean obama should have put his own hand on his forehead or what when he performed the low bow?”

Yes. He would have taken the other hand in his and moved both hands to his (0bama’s) forehead.

Remember your “Lawrence of Arabia” when the character of Lawrence greets the arab tribe after receiving the white clothes and golden dagger. The last action is the bowing and touching of 3 points, ending with the touching of the head.

Look again at the video footage closely. The angles indicate that this was possible, although the bow itself is disgraceful in itself and took my breath away.

thats just not a protocol fluff, thats like a great big What the F$ck are you doing, it just slapped the face of every family that lost people to islamic terrorism and he just signalled to the whole Middle East and the world that he is subserviant to the King of Saudi Arabia.

I mean this is not just a fluff, this is a major international embarrassment on an epic scale.

I am not sure that the English language has words to express my complete contempt for the Kenyan Cur and his ignominious action.

He has spit on the honor of America and of all Americans.

It is an unforgivable affront, and I will no longer even dignify his surname with "mister".

There are a number of photos on Google showing Pres. Bush bowing before the Saudi King, in a one-way bow.

This “incident” of Obama bowing isn’t going anywhere.

I forgot to remind you in post 524 that ‘islam’ is, as a word, a command, meaning ‘submit!’

Hence the bowing/obeisance.

I’ve studied/been interested in the culture since the early 1960s, like Patton reading Rommel’s book.

This is the first American President to bow to any head of state. How dare he!

The White House comment line is 202-456-111.

I’ve never seen them, do you have a link to any?

I’ve seen Bush and the Saudi King give affection, (although people made fun) at least they are treating each other as equals.

Bowing before the Saudi King is not an indication of equality. Please share the Bush bowing photos, if there are any. Thx.
