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

If he ever meets with Netanyahu which I’m willing to bet he never will, it will be interesting to watch and see if he’ll bow down to him as well or if he’ll keep his Muslim customs to himself.

"I’ve spent a lot of time in Japan and never bowed to anyone.

I've lived there, twice for a total of 40 months as a Marine Corps officer. I've bowed plenty of times to Japanese dignitaries, their wives, JSF Officers and others in more formal, ceremonial settings. And certainly, this is what the military or DOS protocol would demand - nothing wrong or submissive about it.

Well, Dubya held the King’s (then Prince’s) hand in a walk through the Rose Garden. Obama’s just trying to do him one better.

Ni such bow was delikvered to Her Majesty , Queen Elizabeth II.

Now Zero is putting on knee pads?

Put it this way: He has a starnge way of selecting which set of diplomatic customs he will employ in any given situation.A small bow in the presenc e of the Queen is quite in order, but a 90 degree grovel for the Saudis is a very bad sign for America.

Now he has the Sheiks dribble on his chin. Not a good sign.

How can this be the highlight of GOP ads when Bush was photographed holding hands and kissing the Saudis? This is a non-issue and we need to concentrate on things that will take back the House and Senate for 2010.

I'm sorry to say that most Anericans are too stuoid and parochial to understand the international implications of this bow before the Saudi king.

It means he is subservient.

That’s just my thought. Can you imagine all of the leaders who confirmed their own countries’ intelligence that Obama is a vain but weak naif who’s halfway to giving our country away without even being asked. Talk about an easy mark!

This is DISGUSTING! Americans do not grovel before foreign royalty, period. That’s a fundamental tenet of a democratic society that does not recognize royals as supreme masters of the universe. We can be respectful, for sure (though one can doubt that an Islamo-fascist deserves any respect) but that does not involve bowing down to kiss the hand or ring, an act which signifies submission.

SUBMISSION! The US President has now groveled before the Saudi King. Just what we expected from the Obamanation.

C’mon... Do you not understand the difference between greeting an EQUAL, and BOWING in submission? This is WAY different than what Bush did in greeting not only a foreign leader, but a close family friend (they’ve been doing business since George was a kid — the Prince and he probably played together!).

This is not a NON-Issue. This is exactly the type of issue that sticks in people’s minds, and resonates. It’s exactly the type of “sound-bite” attack that the GOP NEEDS to stop being afraid of... The Democrats took advantage of EVERY single little miss-step Bush made, none even CLOSE to this act by Obama. If the GOP wants to win in 2010 — they need to hit HARD... APPEARANCE IS EVERYTHING in today’s political world...

I am wondering that did he really snub our best ally on various occasions on purpose or just because he is n idiot and why the need to bow to a saudi muslim king?

I hope that there will be journalists out there who will ask him why he did this and not to anyone else plus I will have a sign now saying

obama bows to saudi king but ignores our voices and the constitution

watch at the 50 second mark. abdulla extends his hand, O extends his right hand and clearly bows. No autograph signing here. Can’t tell from the video, but it is quite possible he kissed his ring as well. But he did 100% BOW to him

Typical reaction for someone educated in a Muslim Madrassa. An obedient Muslim would feel compelled to bow to a Muslim King, just as an observant Catholic would instinctively cross themselves and kiss the ring of the Pope.

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.

And certainly, this is what the military or DOS protocol would demand - nothing wrong or submissive about it.

See... Marine officers DON'T know everything...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bowing_(social)

"Bowing originated as a gesture of subordination, as lowering the head leaves the bower vulnerable. This was particularly the case in Asian cultures such as that of samurai Japan."

"Bowing to other human beings is frowned upon in Muslim cultures as all human beings are considered equal and bowing is only supposed to be done to God in Islam. Similarly, in Judaism the second of the Ten Commandments is generally interpreted to forbid bowing before anyone but God."

So, not only was obie out of protocol..... but to a muslim obie would be seen bowing as if the Saudi was allah (their "god").

Just as I suspected... Here is a screen shot of the "Saudi Gazette" Front page online now... A quick Google News Search has shown that this IS making the papers - at least in some smaller locales around the U.S. now... It's only a matter of time, IMHO before it "breaks open" and really gets its legs... The following is the reason our MSM will HAVE to cover this, IMHO. It's also the reason that the GOP would be COMPLETE FOOLS NOT to seize this opportunity...

this is good, they made such a fuss of Bush and he never even did this or anything as bad.

Some reps now have to ask why did he feel the need to do this plus why was he different with this king to all the others.

When the public gets to find out the numbers for phony will go down more .

seize on this and don’t let it go.
