|I am quite certain that this is not the protocol, and is most unbecoming a President of the United States.
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.
2009-2012 : America's enemies have a few years to strike.
do they not even know how to use a computer to find this info out.
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?
LOL, that is the best explanation!
Holding hands, hand shaking are both the acts of EQUALS. A BOW is an act of SUBMISSION and/or SUBSERVANCE! I didnt care for Bushs 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 Saudis 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?
Interesting music from the brothers from Queens.
Bring the violin to the forefront!!
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?
Freakin’ repulsive. And it shows who is really in charge.
I've seen better manners at 75% off tables @ Thanksgiving Day Sales.
He ordered Chrysler to merge with Fiat, so he should also bow to Berlusconi.
for those that think something might have been dropped:
go directly to 50 seconds in and watch for 5 seconds.
now what do you think????
...have to go vomit now...
rather than hope, we get a dope..who spends chump Change on gifts for allies.
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 Prime Minister Gordon Brown: “Here’s a bunch of DVDs that won’t work in your player.”
To the Queen of England: “Here’s an iPod with movies of you on it, even though you already have an iPod and probably don’t want to watch footage of yourself.”
To the Saudi King: “I bow at your feet, your Majesty.”
WTH!?! WTH!?! WTH!?! This pos will never be re-elected. Now way in hell. He will be damn lucky to not be impeached the end of the year.
Don’t fool yourself. Get involved.
Is he giving the country away?????????????????????????
Yes, unless we stop him. hasn’t that been obvious since day 1?
why is his wife there anyway?
IT’S FREE! WE GET TO PAY FOR IT!!
“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.
‘sl’ is the semitic root of islam, muslim, etc. Root letters consist of 2-3 letters.
Yoo Hoo, GOP Campaign 2010- we have found a billboard
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.
GRRRRRRRR IF I WERE THERE I WOULD OF KICKED HIM RIGHT IN THE ASS!!!
It looks like he is kissing his hand. That MF’er is a Muslin. PERIOD!
RIGHT YOU ARE! I wish someone would level the charge of treason against him. They many not get it to stick but it would leave him cover in the filth of his own making.
I think he’s doin’ a hit of coke. Either got got a pocket-rocket (no girls, not THAT kind) or a master blaster.
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".
President Obama bows in submission to Saudi Arabian king, April 2, 2009
Another video link here (at about 50 seconds):
HE SHOULD BE ARRESTED TRIDED AND HUNG FOR TREASON!
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.
In case everyone missed it
Whitehouse gives a porn phone number by mistake to reporters for a conference call. LoL LoL
In a press release. Hahahaha
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.
Bush did do this. Check out photos on Google images.
Is he kissing the ring?
whats your guess the person writing it has been using that porn number and just subconciously wrote it instead.....
HAHA, It was a BIG BOW. So to all the excuse makes that he dropped something, take it back, NOW.
Could you post a link? Then people can compare bows.
5 women who don’t know how to research....
Please, provide a link to one of these pictures. I recall President Bush holding the king’s hand, but I certainly don’t recall him bowing to the king.
I just did a google search and the first page is all 0bama bowing to Saudi King. If you know of photos please post them or links at least so a comparison can be made.
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.
The direct line to the WH is 202-456-1414.
I checked for the images you referenced and turned up nothing other than the hand-holding and kissing. No bows other than in prayer.
I can’t wait ‘til this toads knees bow before the king of kings. What a glorious day it will be!
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.
