Barack Obama: A Tale of Two Bows … The US Media Completely Ignores Story … They Bowed Out


We reported the other day on Barack Obama’s two much different bow;   one to a Saudi King, the other to the Queen of England. The US main stream media decided to not cover the awkward story. In other words, they bowed out. What a shock, providing more cover for “The Chosen One”. Watch the great video below that perfectly compares and contrasts the Obama bows.

A Tale of Two Bows

 Hat Tip: CQblogger’s Channel

However, as reported at The Gateway Pundit, some international media picked up on the story. From the Aussie’s and The Sydney Morning Herald comes … ‘Obama and the King: a right royal bow row.’

Conservative American commentators have accused Barack Obama of “grovelling” to an Arab monarch at the G20 summit in London.

A photo and video footage of the US President bowing to Saudi Arabian King Abdullah at yesterday’s G20 meet-and-greet has been doing the rounds on the internet today.

Mr Obama appears to shake the King’s hand and then bow from the waist while French President Nicholas Sarkozy looks on.

Leading conservative blogger Michelle Malkin and Dakota Voice both wrote of their outrage at the President’s deference to a foreign monarch.

“The whole thing is embarrassing. Its like the `American Hillbillies go to Europe’,” Malkin wrote.

“He is throwing American power and prestige out with both hands as fast as he can.”

Dakota Voice contributor Bob Ellis said the bow was a gesture of submission.

      Barry is certainly not representing ME!

      When we gave this starry-eyed ‘world
      changer’ the reins, he began representing
      HIMSELF in every thing he’s done so

      Great Britain is MY ally and I expect whoever
      we elect to represent America’s interests
      will show proper respect. Not sure where
      Barry got his training, but, reasonable people
      are questioning his motives and intent. Even
      unreasonable folks are wondering
      whazzz upppp?

      Pass the cheez whiz.

      They live in a state of fear.

      Honestly, their future doesn’t belong in him.


      Maybe it will take a humbled man to heal the nation.

      Laugh out LOUD!

      See what I mean…

      What the hell is a pyramid government?

      You can’t just go around releasing personal

      information about people or mess with their

      computers to make these rediculous sites come up.

      I know one thing:

      I will never destroy my REAL computer…

      It tells it all.

      But, I do believe I will buy another.

      Good Night…

      From the last Casey/Caylee Anthony article on SM – The following comments were posted by Hope a couple of days ago:

      Well, you know me. I blew the whistle last night, even talked to the police. Obviously, no one cares about what happens on Scared Monkeys after all we’re all a bunch of dumb shits, anyway. I was told, not to worry about it.

      Question is: Is this still a site that wants justice for the real crimes, with intent, that are committed against people and their civil rights or has scared monkeys turned into a rumor mill? All my posts are monitored and have been for years. Sadly, there is no reason to trust anyone these days. There are such things as cyber-space stalkers and, perhaps, a mission in their hearts to silence the blogging messenger. Either way, with all the hate that is thrown around this place, it’s a wonder you’ve come this far. I wanted to say good-bye and obviously, that wasn’t good enough. Again, I am breaking from the chains that bind me and am moving on with a ‘you go, girl’ attitude with only justice for the missing in my heart.


      And, please, if there was any spam or whatever you call it; you didn’t get it from me… I’m not that complicated.

      Why do you ask #4?

    6. HOPE on April 5th, 2009 6:45 pm

      Do you want another dictionary?

      Or were you just checking?


      What’s up?

    7. Susan on April 5th, 2009 7:45 pm

      Hope – This was my response to your comments posted on #4 above:

      I know I vowed to “ignore” you, but I found your comments a wee bit strange, odd, bizarre, falling in line with the true meaning of “WTF” and just had to asks a few questions before your depart to parts unknown.

      Who here really knows the real you? My guess is no one…

      Why did you say that “no one cares about what happens on Scared Monkeys”? Who or what did you blow the whistle on and why did you call the police? Are you reporting SM for something?

      For someone who professes their love to R and Mrs. R one minute (#1), then makes the comment that, and I quote, “…we’re all a bunch of dumb shits, anyway.”, referring to posters on SM, is a bit contradicting and disturbing, don’t ya think? I’ll exclude myself, and most here, from your insult of calling us “dumb shits”.

      You have thrown around more hate on this blog than anyone else in the past two years I’ve been here. You are a fine one to “call the kettle black”. What is your problem, anyway?

      If your intent was to leave SM, why are you still here posting you hatred? If you were truly here as an advocate for the missing, there would be no need for your insults towards others.

      I found it a bit strange that you would also brag about running more than a few posters off, but you weren’t tell us anything we didn’t already know.

      bye, bye patti and good riddance

      #7- Susan….Nice job! IMO, & for some strange reason, however—I think she’ll be back.

      So, as she would say in her own words:

      LIGHT THE FIRES ! lol

      Good Lord, help us & please pass the Nanners.

      Thanks, NG, but we know she’ll never actually leave…

      Is there any american President before Obama that didn’t bow before gasoline, sorry, I mean Saudi King ? Those nations which don’t have it or anything else to offer to U.S. interests, well, they are in bad luck. They definitely don’t respect human rights, have dictatorial regimes, are undemocratic and eventually they must be bombed.
