(Until the GOP repents of supporting Bush, people will think they're just "bashing 0bama".)
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.

(Beat him, strip him and bring him to my tent!)
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.

(HITLER WAS A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.)
Mideastern common custom. Nothing more or less. Odd to us but common there.

(Defending RINOs is the same as defending Liberals.)
Actually that is a HUGE sign of respect that the King of Saudi Arabia is rendering to Bush.
The King's right hand is holding the President's LEFT hand. In their culture, the top dog's left hand is held as that is the wiping hand.
