Yes. I remember that clip. The man was unsteady on his feet. That whole taping showed an older man doddering and tottering and Dubya stepping forward to help him. Holding hands or anything else with men was not the norm for Dubya; but it was the norm for him to be courteous and kind.

At least he didn’t stick his butt up in the air bowing to the king, apparently unlike the nightmare that has now been bestowed on us by modern neo-Nazis in this country.

MY "name calling"? Here I try to help you lift yourself out your pool of ignorance and that's the thanks I get. Oh, well, at least you won't be humiliating yourself further on this subject and will have to resort to trashing GW on other issues.

You're welcome.

I don’t know...is it possible whoever wrote the caption got it wrong and just thought he was bowing? I mean it sure looks like he’s going down to pick something up. Even the guy to his right looks like he’s going in to do the same. And then you got those other guys all looking down at something. I sure hope that’s the case, if not we will all be the laughing stock.

Make this go viral. Today. Send it to everyone you know.

Even Bush didn’t do this.

Remember most of the hijackers and murderers on 9/11 were Saudis.

Good point, deannadurbin. Rush Limbaugh was just commenting on this "submission" by Obama to the Saudi king. Rush was incredulous...

Excuse me, but you made a stupid, uninformed comparison between Bush holding the King's hand and Obama bowing. Bush did nothing, but respond to the Eastern manners of his guest. It's really not necessary to have a "crush" on GW to correct a misimpression. I obviously embarrassed you and responded by childishly lashing out.

Once again...you're welcome.

I saw that and wondered why Newt was so calm that he seemed okay with global terrorism.

While we went our merry way, white civilization has come under attack by people whose hatred has turned to world-wide revenge. Though it’s all beyond reason, their hatred and anger are real.

“before you go too crazy....look at the picture again....looks like everyone is looking at SOMETHING.....not sure it’s what it appears (bowing)”

Well, if AP reported it that way WHEN posting this picture I would say THAT is what it is!!!

For those who claim he might not be bowing, here’s what the caption on the photo says:

AP Photo 21 hours ago
US President Barack Obama, center, back to camera, greets King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, center, before the official G20 leaders group photo with Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II at London’s Buckingham Palace, Wednesday, April 1, 2009.

Yes, yes it possible. I know I bet what the picture shows is not ‘Zero’ bowing but being chiding about his fly being open! Some people! I bet that those pictures of the planes flying in to the Twin towers werenot acts of terror they were simple flight sudents’ navigational errors!

Maybe someone should call and ask if this is appropriate protocol? (I can’t be making long distance calls at the moment, or spending any money I don’t absolutely HAVE to, or I would do it myself...)

Honestly, it doesn’t matter if his intention was to bow or not... If WE are seeing that this looks like capitulation just IMAGINE what our enemies see in this...

This is exactly why protocol is important, actions sometimes speak much louder than words when it comes to diplomacy.

Perhaps he is just being considerate and he is saying thanks in advance for there not being an Human Caused Events while he holds the office.

(Looking down the road for ‘12, could be that some will say we must keep our current occupant, or else those from the Middle East might Cause more Human Events.)

This picture belongs to Getty Imagines NOT AP. Getty’s caption for their own picture reads:

Getty Images 22 hours ago
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.

I would think they would know best what a picture that belong to them was of.

Please review for yourself:

It appears to me...based on most everyone's reaction in the photo...that someone dropped something...and Zero was going to pick it up.

I don't like Zero at all....but that's MHO of this photo.

This supports the rumor that zero is 6% black and almost half arab.

Michelle 0bama revealed in an interview in People Magazine last year that the 0bama's do NOT exchange gifts at birthdays or Christmas, not even do the children get gifts!

So the 0bamas clearly have little experience in shopping for others which might explain their appalling choices for Gordon Brown and Her Majesty, The Queen.

This might seem bizarre to you or me that a relatively wealthy family does exchange presents, but apparently it is the norm................if you are a Muslim.
