Check the YouTube Video yourself, if that isn't a bow then our President was perhaps checking to make sure that Abdulla's shoes were tied properly? As John Lovitz used to say in his 'Chronic Liar' stitch: "Yeah, that's the ticket."
Personally, I don't really care if our President (who I didn't vote for by the way)bows in person to the Saudi King because in truth, America's BEEN bowing to Saudi Arabia and the rest of OPEC since 1973.
What does irritate me is when our current President's handlers feel they can 'LIE' to us and say he didn't do what he clearly did! Where's the integrity? Just tell the TRUTH (how refreshing that would be actually)!
Just like his 'I Bowl like a kid from the Special Olympics' on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, this event (and his staff's pathetic attempt to deny or cover-it-up) exposes Mr. Obama for what he is, just another politician who lies as easily as he puts his socks on. I'd expected more from a guy who ran for office espousing CHANGE.
Obama est iustus alius falsidicus politician (Obama is just another lying politician).
