President Obama just can’t seem to get out of his own way on the political foul-ups.
First, he gets Britain’s Prime Minister Brown a collection of DVDs (that only work in DVD players here in the U.S.). Then, he gives the Queen an iPod that has photos of her visit to the U.S. and audio of two of his speeches. Then comes the G-20 summit.
During the meet-and-greet, President Obama bows to the King of Saudi Arabia. Yes… he bows, in a flagrant violation of protocol. Americans do not bow to foreign leaders. Period. The reason is because bowing signifies someone’s power over their subjects. Don’t believe us? Just ask Miss Manners.
An anonymous Obama aide tried to cover up the blunder, saying “It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah.”
Two hands, huh?
Then does President Obama have three hands? He must, because we clearly see his left hand down and somewhat across his waist:
You can watch the full clip on YouTube if you prefer. The gasp-inducing moment occurs between 54 and 56 seconds in.
The mainstream media went batty when President Bush was photographed holding the hand of the Saudi king in 2005. Despite that, the Bush administration didn’t try to cover it up and certainly didn’t try to pretend it didn’t happen. Now we’re being blatantly lied to — told that what we’re witnessing with our own eyes isn’t happening — and the mainstream media is… silent.
