More "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" from Obama's Oz.
"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.
Except he was LYING. Video clearly shows that Obama's left hand is visible by his leg, NOT grasping the King's hand.
Rather than explain this away as a faux pas, Obama's people are out and out lying about a picture that anyone who has eyes can SEE is of him BOWING before the King of Saudi Arabia. He isn't picking something up off the floor, or makingn a concession to a short guy. He is freakin' bowing to the ruler of another country.
Because he's gotten such a pass from the press and the kool-aid drinkers, who have eaten up his past lies with a smile and asked for more, they continue to lie. Even in the face of evidence that disproves the lies.
Obama is bent over at the waist and HIS HEAD IS LOWER THAN THE HEADS OF EVERY PERSON IN THE PICTURE. That is subservience and it is shameful for the American president to prostrate himself like this to anyone.
I believe it was intentional. He is a smart guy and he knows the protocol for meeting these heads of state. He chose to lower his head, and not just in a nod, but in a full-fledged act of submision.
It was meant as a message to the Arab and Muslim world that he is one of them. Not that he is a Muslim, but that, as his actions have portrayed, he is currying their favor and open to their agenda (like the Saudi Plan for peace that is so biased against Israel). They have a friend and allie in D.C., and previous American foreign policy is out the window.
It's taken a week for this story to make the mainstream info-tainment world of CNN, CBS, ABC, and NBC. And talking heads like Donna Brazille are lying about it on CNN.
We ignore these obvious signs of his true intentions at our natonal peril.
