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.
Frankly my dear, I don’t give a darn whether it’s a bow or not. It looks like one and I say we exploit it to the hilt. Can he prove it wasn’t a bow? We need to be ready to play hardball against this abomination.
OBAMA IS KISSING ABULLAH’S HAND OR RING... CAN’T ANYBODY ELSE SEE THAT FROM THIS ANGLE?
