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...

"Obama wished to demonstrate his respect and appreciation of the personality of King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz, who has made one of the most important calls in the modern era, namely the call for inter-faith and inter-cultural dialogue to defuse the hatred, conflict and wars," wrote the columnist, Muhammah Diyab.


Ok, well far be it for me to call Obama a liar. Perhaps he tripped. Perhaps, he saw his shoe was untied. Perhaps the Saudi Prince played the old, there is something on your tie gag. Perhaps Obama was praying. Perhaps Obama was sneezing at an inopportune time. Perhaps he was admiring the Prince's shoes. Perhaps Obama found his head particularly heavy that day, full of all sorts of pride. Perhaps he was simply bowing to a foreign power. Yes, I'll go with that one. Obama, the freaking President of the United freakin States was bowing to a Saudi Prince. It makes since, he had already been apologizing all week for America being evil. He had already kissed every butt placed in front of him. Why not kowtow to the Saudi Prince? What more do you have to lose?

The White House is saying it looks that way due to obama being 6'3" to the King at 5'10". That is complete BS, I am 6'4" and have shaken hands with people who are 5' 10" or shorter and I do not have to lean over to shake hands, no US President has ever bowed to any head of state, till now. Why not just tell the truth, obama is an Islam sympathizer, just as he gave Hamas $900,000 dollars. Now he wants to give away our sovereignty as a free nation.
