>> Yest, he and his wife do not know how to properly greet the Queen of England. Wonder if they curtsied to here?

I bet Bambi curtsied. Whereas Michelle pulled her sleeve up and “pumped up her bicep” for the Queen to feel.

We’ve never had two more tasteless occupants of the WH.

In past centuries Michelle wouldn’t be accompanying her husband back home if she had touched the Queen...

Bowed to Saudi but not the queen. Why won’t people open their eyes?

You know what......it's not my ignorance you should worry about.

Perhaps you should concern yourself with the damn muslim running your country into the ground and his now international submission....before you smart off.

Typical stupidity from the Bush bashers. Handholding in the East is a sign of friendship and hospitality. The King was a guest at the ranch. At least attempt to inform yourself.

>> First of all....One has to describe the proper bow appropriate for a Saudi King....

OK, let me take a stab at it.

The proper bow to a Saudi king for the head of the most powerful nation on Earth is NO BOW AT ALL!!!

What part of that don’t people understand? His SUBJECTS may bow to him to show their subservience. But a sovereign nation is NOT subservient to this POS king!

The PResident of the United States BOWS to NO ONE (but God).

because some on our side always want to play by the book and also have to go by queensboro rules.

his wife nearly knocked the prince out the way
him and his wife grabbed her hand with their two hands
she mauled the Queen
she never did a curtsy

DVD’s
I-pods
buttons with the wrong translation
57 states
USA invented the car
etc
etc
etc
etc

and yet if this was Sarah she would be crucified and yet some on our side still want to give him the benefit of the doubt

AARRGGHHH

a parallel point:

last night on fox newt was analogizing america not opening its eyes to the threats of global terrorism,

and the 1930s.

Deb, worry about todays issue not Dubya's legacy..........I do understand protocol, even if it creeps me out, but I also understand BOWING to the enemy.

Look beyond your dubya "crush" and see what just happened.

That is a powerful scene from that film. As well as the footage of their fight on that hill (Little and Big Round Top) in the woods. This country has come a long way from men the likes of a Colonel Chamberlain and the 20th Maine. We are much worse for it.

"Bush set the table of socialism. Obama is serving the meal."

You're an idiot. The issue at hand is 0bama bowing to a Saudi King. That you are so ignorant as to talk about Bush being at fault shows mental illness and retardation.

Seek competent mental help immediately.

the Queen doesn’t get a bow nor a curtsy from his racist wife

Nor should she. We had a little tiff in the 1700s to settle that matter.

This is the one area I would not chastise the Obamas.

Your tagline says nothing germane to this thread about 0bama bowing to the Saudi King (though perhaps your tagline does expose your own personal ideological agenda).

Seek competent mental help. Immediately.

Sane people can stay on topic in a thread.

Welcome the Jeb Clampet in the White House.

At least the Clampets would have shown absolute politeness, even if they didn't know exact protocol.

gettyimages.com has several photos of others with the King but Bambi is the only one bowing to him. The others might be slightly bowing but Bambi is so low, he could retie the King’s shoes if he wanted to.

I’m looking for video of this event.

Pro’ly but I’d think there was a protocol officer on the WH staff. This falls on Rahm first for not protecting his President, even if the Dark One is playing games.

should they bow to the Japs?

should women wear a headscarf to muslim countries?

1700’s was a long time ago and even back then there was respect

by argument is that they did nothing to our best ally, an ally who has stood with us and helped us to the point that they have lost their men and women.
what does this leader do for our best ally

snub them
what does he do for the muslims,
well the first phone call
the first media address
this bow maybe
900,000 to the Palistianians
2 bil to Pakistan

wonder where that money will end up hey

thus far he and his wife have showed that they have no class and are more suited to the inner city slum, or with their pals at the black panthers
