White House BS
Give me a break.
Does the White House honestly think Americans are that stupid?
They are claiming that Mr. Obama did not bow to the Saudi King Abdullah.
They are claiming he was compensating for a height differential.
Hah! That is a good one.
Look at the picture above - that's a freaking bow.
It wasn't even a nod, it was a knee bending bow.
How come he didn't "make up for a height differential" with a much shorter Queen Elizabeth? or any of the shorter Asian delegates to the G20?
Here is the definition of a bow from Dictionary.com:
bow - /baʊ/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [bou]
–verb (used without object)
1. to bend the knee or body or incline the head, as in reverence, submission, salutation, recognition, or acknowledgment.
2. to yield; submit: to bow to the inevitable.
3. to bend or curve downward; stoop: the pines bowed low.
Yeah, he bowed.
The Arab press seems to think so too.
Our president bowed to a Saudi King, and bowed to no other statesman at the G20.
It's been called a “shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate”
I personally think it was a disgrace, especially to our armed forces who take command from this President.
And the White House explanation for this rates more than a 10 on the BS meter.
Height differential my foot.
