To BOW or NOT to BOW...or is it a BOW?

Late last week I had posted this entry about the BOW seen round the world.

Well the White House is having a problem figuring out what a BOW is.....

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.

I would want to be anonymous also if I was trying to float that B S line. For my Liberal friends who are all a flutter about the right going NUTS or trying to be misleading about Obama's intentions for the country, please tell me the White House denying this is anything other than LUNACY!!!!!!

Here is the video once again in case anyone has not seen it. Still waiting for one lil joke about this too from Stewart or Letterman.

I still think he was trying to look up the king's skirts...

Obama, the President of the United States and leader of the free world, bows to a Saudi King who represents a despotic regime noted for its’ human rights violations, a birthplace of terrorists, a symbol of everything that is an antithesis to our system of government, and it’s no big deal?

I consider myself fortunate to have been born in a republic. I appreciate that as a citizen of a republic, I need not bow to any man or woman. We are all created equal, and blood lines do not make one person superior. This gesture by Obama should rankle every citizen for when Obama bowed as President of the United States, we all bowed.

He did bow, see the video from the latest angle:

He lowered his head to the Saudi King because of the height difference ... exactly how tall is the queen of England? I doubt she takes the low post when playing royal hoops.

I never posted on this and now I feel the need.
