    It is obvious that O'bama rex bowed to the Saudi King. The question is why? Was he bowing to a religious leader or to a superior King?

    Would you rather he walked hand in hand with him ? Like Bush did ?

    Or perhaps a smooch....

    The reason ? For all the posturing of both these me, we have no intention of weaning ourselves off Saudi Oil.

    Aren't there enough legitimate reasons to criticize him ?

    Less that 20 % of our oil imports come from the Middle East.

    If your picture is not a fake Bush disgustingly kissed the Saudi King. I wonder if O'bama rex kissed the Saudi King's ring while his head was hidden.

    MP's pic is not a fake, to my knowledge. But it could be. The Bush-Saudi King holding hands is not a fake.

    You can read my take on Bush and the Saudi Royal Family connections on the other thread.

    But when Obama bowed before the Saudi muslim king, he sent a powerful signal to the muslim world that we are in obeisance to them. Since he did not bow before Queen Elizabeth, one can only assume he knew full well what he was doing (despite the protests from the WH to the contrary after the bru-ha-ha and caught on video) and that Obama deliberately made this gesture. Kinda like an animal baring it's throat to the Alpha male. I see this as treason.

    [shameless hijack]

    Several years ago, my college roommate was going to meet a japanese businessman. We told him that if a person bowed to you, it was because they wanted you to rub their head for good luck.

    Poor fella nearly got himself slapped. Never believed a word I said after that.

    The holding hands is not fake...I agree with that.

    The kissing one is an obvious photoshop. There are artifacts all around Bush's head. I could have done a better job at photoshopping that one and I'm not that good. The one that everyone calls kissing is this one:

    He curtsied to the queen also. It is just a sign of respect, acknowledging their position in the country. If we had a custom like this, the King would comply when he visited Obama in the US. I don't see what the big deal is.

    He did bow to the queen. As he shook her hand he bent at the waste which is the custom.

    Methinks I've found a freudian slip...

    Are we discussing his foreign policy now?

    Actually LeBuick, bowing to the king is much more than a sign of respect. It's a sign of subservience. I don't like unnecessary bashing of anyone, but in this case Obama did a stupid thing. Unless you are a person that is part of that country and are subservient to the king, you don't bow.

    A leader of the United states has no business bowing to a foreign entity. Especially the terrorist-harboring Saudis.

    If he wants to do that, dig up George III, and at least let him do it to one who ruled here at some point.

    And since you're about to ask...yes, I didn't like Bush's coziness with those thugs either.

    The Bush-Saudi King holding hands is not a fake. I saw it on TV. However I have known a couple of people from the Middle East. The like personal contact. Of course some will saw your head off.

    Both George Bush and his father George HW Bush had significant personal financial dealings with the Saudi royalty. This had nothing to do with our country and everything to do with Bush's private bank account.

    Then it must be Obama's motivation, as well.

    Makes me wonder what branch of Islam he was schooled in by his step father.
