Did he actually do any of those things. Apparently it is out to the media.

That’s why I suggested he’s signing an autograph or maybe even looking at something. You don’t want something like this to go viral and then blow up in our faces.

I posted this picture and article on my facebook and urge each and every Freeper to do the same. It disgusted me to see this act by our President. Let’s see how many American Citizens feel the same!!! Let’s pass this around!!!!!!!!

talked to my sister over in England and the media are reporting this.

Many are now saying he seems not to have a clue what he is doing so maybe this trip is starting to wake others up about him

He didn’t bow to the Queen

Well that's ok - Heads of State shouldn't bow to each other. It's consorts of Heads of State who bow to other Heads of State, maybe. But bowing to a Sheik, lordy!

I felt physically sick viewing this picture, but the sickness in my heart was much, much worse.

I can not help but think of Joshua Chamberlain’s speech for the movie ‘Gettysburg’:

“This is a different kind of army. If you look back at history you will see men fighting for pay, for women, for some other kind of loot. They fight for land, power, cause a king tells them or just because they light killing. We are here for something new, this has not happened much in the history of the war. We are a man out to set other men free. America should be free ground, all of it, not divided be a line between slave state and free, all the way. From here to the Pacific Ocean, no man has to bow, no man born to royalty. Here we judge you on what you do, not who your father was. Here you can be something, here is the place to build a home, but it’s not the land, there is always more land. It’s the idea that we all have value, you and me. What we are fighting for, in the end, we are fighting for each other.”

I am sorry Colonel Chamberlain for the squandering of your scarificies and that of so many who have given their all to keep us free. We have traded all you and your brothers fought and died to give us for the empty promise of ‘hope and change’ and we are now all lower than the lowest peasent who was trod under Stalin’s boots, my heart weeps for the lost of the America that was and for the America I leave to my great children.

Yes, we can’t tell what he’s doing from a still photograph. He could be bent over laughing — it does look like someone’s just told a joke, judging from the expressions on others’ faces.

Truth is: He might not be “bowing” in reverence to anyone here. Let’s not be so quick to judge what’s going on.

America is losing its position of command and respect world-wide in carotid-slashing fashion, all due to this fraudulent TOTUS. Even the Taliban are laughing at us and calling our “diplomatic” outreach to them as “lunatic”. All of this only emboldens our enemies. We will pay BIG TIME for this administrations imbicilic actions.

I agree. Like the Bush picture holding hands, this picture is also probably being misinterpreted. As much as I detest his policies, I need more confirmation than this picture that he intended to bow.

I don’t like this guy any more than the rest of you, but he is not bowing. The two Saudis are smiling, the guy to the right is also looking down, as is Sarkozy. He has dropped something or stumbled. Besides if he is bowing it is one piss poor bow. It is halfway between kneeling and bowing. If you are going to bow you keep your legs straight and bend at the waist. If you are kneeling you keep your back straight and go all the way down on one knee.

I think we are reading too much into this photo.

This disgraceful action by Obama was predicted in the book “2012 The Evolution”. The book also describes the buyouts of major corporations in America by terrorist sleeper cells which leads to the eventual takeover of our Government.

While “2012 The Evolution” is listed as fiction, frighteningly Mr. Obama, and the Congress, continually do things daily that seem to pull from this book which may eventually change its category on the bookshelves. Who would have ever thought an American President would bow to anyone - let alone an Arab leader?

Barack Obama — Magna Cum Saudi?

URGENT BULLETIN: Did Saudi adviser pay Barack Obama's law school bills?

An important excerpt:

"I think it is axiomatic that legal/financial advisers to Saudi Arabian princes do not routinely finance law school educations for nonbelievers. Therefore, we finally have a smoking gun, a concrete link, a very serious and substantial piece of strong circumstantial evidence, that Obama was holding himself out to be a Muslim as late as his mid-twenties.

That’s kind of a “graceless” bow.

Maybe he’s kissing the king’s ring... isn’t it customary for a sovereign American leader to do that? ;-)

Can’t wait ‘til he meets Kim Jong-Il. Bambi the Doofus will probably drop to his knees and fold his teeth back.

>> I need more confirmation than this picture that he intended to bow.

From Getty Images:
US President Barack Obama (3rd L) bows to Saudi Arabia King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud (2nd R) as French President Nicolas Sarkozy (3rd R) and South Korean President Lee Myung -Bak (L) look on before a family picture with Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II (not pictured) at Buckingham Palace, in London, on April 1, 2009. World leaders wrangled Wednesday on how a London summit could fix the global economy as demonstrators attacked a bank in an anti-capitalist riot in the British capital. Demonstrators laid siege to the Bank of England and smashed the windows of a nearby bank that has become a symbol of the financial crisis rescue carried out by the British government which will be discussed at Thursday’s Group of 20 summit in the city.

First of all....One has to describe the proper bow appropriate for a Saudi King....I doubt we are all on the same page as to what constitutes a prescribed bow.

AND, when is a bow not a bow??
