    The traveling, never-ending campaign road show came home this week. POTUS is back in Washington from his “I like you-you like me,” excellent adventure in Europe and “surprise” trip to Baghdad. It was nice of Obama to thank the troops. He should have bowed to them instead of King Abdullah. Members of the O-Team, recovering from late-night teleprompter edits, grand parties and jet-lag now deny that the apparently obsequious gesture to the Saudi king was really a “bow.” Perhaps it would be better described as a “curtsey.” Whatever it was, the Arab press applauded the moment as servile -- and...

    The White House is denying that the president bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at a G-20 meeting in London, a scene that drew criticism on the right and praise from some Arab outlets. "It wasn't a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he's taller than King Abdullah," said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.The Washington Times called the alleged bow a  "shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate" and said it violated centuries of American tradition of not deferring to royalty. The Weekly Standard, meanwhile, noted that American protocol apparently rules...

    The White House today said that Mr. Obama's bow was due to the fact that Obama is taller than the Saudi king and he bent down to shake the king's hand with both of his. The video on YouTube shows differently so, I thought the relevant frame of video should be given it's own thread. Either Mr. Obama has grown a third hand or the "unnamed White House source" is a total liar.Video link. Stop the video at :05 and :12. The bow happens before the double handed hand-shake.
