Obama bows down to Saudi King

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

You’re right - Google is Google. Type in “Obama bows”, too few people know about using terms and +.

Watch how you get hits in the millions for Obama bowls, but nothing for Obama bows. Google displays the number of times a search was initiated on that term, no?

For “Obama bows” they have nothing. No one has searched on this term?

If you have a blog, put a link to one of the articles on your blog; then you will have an archival link.

If not, you can refer back to FR by doing a title search using a minimal word phrase (ie “Obama bows).

So you lament this latest round of Federalism by pining for the romantic movie version of rampant Federalism?

No wonder this country is so screwed up.

I could care less what Google does or does not do, because my news source is NOT Google.

I hope that helps somewhat.

Our last President was King Abdullah's b*tch too. No wonder so many people want to drill ANWR, and no wonder so many politicians are so dead-set against it. King Abdullah can't drink his oil, after all.

Where, in your rush to moral relativism, is your photo of President Bush in a position of subjugation?

Likewise, was Obama’s bow reciprocated?

No. It was not. Not even, with so much as a nod.

Obama’s was an act of supplication.

I am torn by this.

I refer to him as a radical racist, Marxist and socialist.

I thought I would have to add idiot amateur to that, but that implies he doesn’t realize the negative import of the things he is doing, such as this bow.

I have come to the conclusion he knows quite well.

Your second “photo” - the alleged kissyface. Is obviously a crude photoshop. Democrat propaganda.

Obama’s (deep, and unreturned) bow to the Saudi King, was not a photoshop. It was the act of an inferior, in the presence of their superior.

Look at the photo - the Asian leaders looking on, were flabbergasted at what was happening.

Thanks for your time and effort in providing me the information and links. I’m planning to reread again later as well, so you’ll probably hear from me agian about some things. But, I must say your work is pretty impressive.

I’m just being a little difficult, because I find it so humiliating tht he did this.

But, maybe his ‘transparacy’ is finally showing.

This is a non-issue?

You are either kidding or you are ignorant. There is no third choice.

There are analysts and advisors in every country around the world, friend and foe who are looking at that bow, and there are only two things that they are concluding: That Obama is either a rank amateur who can be taken to the cleaners, or he is intentionally doing things like this to show that if he and his administration have anything to say about it, the USA is not going to be playing the part of a superpower in the world.

Those are the two conclusions, and there is no third alternative.

And both are equally dangerous.

If he is a clueless, rank amateur (and he is regardless) then like hustlers looking for marks, someone or some country is going to try to take him.

If he is signaling that the USA is going to play the part of just being any other country, a liberal form of relativism, then that is giving the green light to any country that wishes to exploit that weakness.

so far I have not seen this mentioned any where on tv, , maybe if we all sent the clip off the media will not be able to ignore it,

pictures of obama seeing the Queen, pictures of obama with those two other idiots and yet not this.

This is huge and they made a big thing about Bush

Your second “photo” - the alleged kissyface. Is obviously a crude photoshop. Democrat propaganda.

Here's the un-photoshopped versions from the April 2005 visit of then Crown Prince Abdullah to the Crawford, Texas ranch:

You do yourself and the credibility of conservatives a disservice to dismiss this widely-discussed incident as "Democrat propaganda."

Don't get mad at Obama - get mad at the entire apparatus of US fealty to the tyrant Saudi princes and kings from top to bottom, based on our unquenchable thirst for oil that our Saudi-lapdog politicians won't let us extract domestically.

Ok, all of you that think this issue is SO important, why don’t you show me where this is still being talked about a year from now, a month from now, a week from now. No, maybe then you’ll be talking about what color tie Obama wore that day and what it “symbolized” while ignoring how he is spreading abortion around the world, passing new gun laws, etc. etc.

Thanks for your repost - without the photoshop.

Point is the (real, not the photoshop) “kissyface” was actually the equivalent of the cocktail party cheek kiss. Not lip to lip, as the first one showed.

I believe you’re familiar enough with culture, to know that’s unremarkable among men. Among EQUALS. In middle east culture.

Bowing an unreturned bow, is something else altogether.

Anywhere.

there are other leaders laughing at Obama

what the hell is he doing and lets get this off to fox along with other media outlets

The liberals right now are trying to spin and and have already sent letters off to MSNBC,NBC etc saying it is not a news story and if they did then they should show Bush greeting the King . We all know what Bush did is nothing as bad as this and the liberals are trying to silence the story

don’t let them

Trust me, it will be talked about for a very long time.

This is the first time the POTUS has done such a thing. I’m so glad we have elections every 4 years. The dems used to laugh at Bush, OMG, it’s been a heck of a 3 months under this administration.

Also, in regards to all this gift giving gaffes - they forgot to get something for the Duke. He certainly wasn’t making ‘nice’ there.

Something tells me that you voted for Obama and you are on this site to manipulate the truth. Unfortunately, you are out numbered here on FR, so your tactics won’t work. We are not the MSM and we can think for ourselves.

The Friends would jump on it because they are not swooning over Barry's Big European Adventure. They even told Geraldo to get a grip as he went on and on over how the world loved us, and Barry's great new pals, and Michelle is Jackie, and he feels so positive who cares about the trillions or Russia or Iran.

It might take Michelle Malkin or Laura Ingraham as guests to bring it up. I had to turn off the TV because Barry is campaigning in France now.

I was on DVR and fast forwarded when the idiot came on along with listening to Geraldo
Why on earth does FOX think that we care what that fool thinks.

I am stunned yes stunned that even after all the idiotic lack of class the obama’s have shown I am stunned that this idiot goes to France and feels he has to do a town hall meeting there.

Imagine how Sarkozy feels, that this idiot yesterday bowed to the King of Saudi, and then he sees this media whore in his own country doing town hall meetings

The leaders must be thinking that he is a right idiot who loves himself

enough is enough and even the left have to admit that the obama’s have shown no class, embarrassed themselves and now town hall meetings in France

Does he know that there are far too many things going on around the world and this idiot wants to be more popular and get on TV

Everything evil that 0bama does is relevant. I checked your comment history and it is quite telling. Others should do it too. If you are opposed to 0bama and his policies, loyalties, plans and ideology, then you should quit harrassing people about this topic and post on other threads you deem more important.

What a weak minded individual.

Little sniveling liberal pukes have taken control in this country....how did this happen?

Is the republican party that inept and impotent?

Time for a new party y'all......something on the order of nationalist or constitutionalists or American party.

Raw, unapologetic, stiff jawed conservatism. America first, American worker first, strong borders, English as official language, Constitution / civics courses a prereq in school.

Eliminate and or lower all forms of taxes, dramatically reduce the size and scope of government.

Bring home our servicemen and woman to protect American soil and only send troops into battle when the threat directly challenges the sovereignty and security of the heartland or the American people.

Stop playing world cop. Few appreciate liberty around the world, so why gift them with it.

Bring manufacturing back to America. Stop decimating American interest for a quick buck.

Go back to the gold standard, balance the federal checkbook and stop writing HOT checks. Stop borrowing beyond our means and allowing foreign countries like China to influence American public policy by means of monetary arm twisting.

This insanity must stop or America will surely die.
