Charles from little green footballs claims Bush bowed to Saudis, Charles is wrong

Little green footballs:

Bush Bowed Too

More than a few people on the right are screaming that Barack Obama should be impeached for bowing to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.

Those of you who are buying into this hyperventilating nonsense need to see this video. (Click the image to watch.)

This deference to a very bad country has been going on for decades; it didn’t start with Barack Obama, or with George W. Bush, or with John F. Kennedy for that matter.

Instead of impeaching Barack Obama, America needs to impeach its gas tanks.

And just imagine how much screaming there would be if Obama had let Abdullah hang a medal around his neck.

Well actually, if you click on the video - you can see clearly bush is given a medal - that's not a bow. It's a "bend".

Compare and contrast:

Breach of protocol. "Americans do not bow to foreign monarchs because that act signified the monarch's power over his subjects."

"Obama bows down to Saudi King (updated)," by Clarice Feldman at The American Thinker, April 2 (thanks to Doc Washburn):

[...] See Miss Manners on the protocol. Americans do not bow to foreign monarchs because that act signified the monarch's power over his subjects.

Does this merit a "Caption This!" post?

Caption: The end of times upon us. Our leader bows to the kingdom of evil.
(like it or not - he is the president, the leader of this country)

  1. 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:
