The Obama Bow that The White House Just Wants to Go Away … Gibbs Blows off Media with Sarcastic Response


An American President represents all of America and should never bow down to anyone. Suddenly the Obama Admin is dissing the media …


Every since Barack Obama bowed to Saudi King Abdullah the question has been, did he or didn’t he? Make no mistake about it … Obama bowed. Yes, he shook his hand and he bowed as well. It’s kind of hard to miss it as it has been captured for all to see.

As stated at Power Line, the Obama bow is important as it was not just a breach of protocol, but because it showed a sign of weakness. The “Chosen One” had been doing nothing but apologizing for America’s actions on his first foreign policy tour and the ultimate symbol of bowing down to a Saudi king was a bit much to take. The fact that the Arab press took it as a bow is quite telling.

President Obama’s bow to King Abdullah was significant, not only because it was a naive breach of protocol, but because such signs of submission are taken seriously in the Arab world. (In fact, Obama’s bow received approving coverage in the Arab press.)

Why do we know that Barack Hussein Obama bowed? Because the Obama White House has out out more fabricated stories as to what the hell Obama was doing hoping that something would stick. First the White House said that Obama did not bow and now Press Secretary Gibbs is trying to blow off the entire incident and claim that it is not important. In a sarcastic tone Gibbs feels that he does not have to answer the MSM’s question by stating … “I can only imagine it is of great cause and concern for many people struggling with the economy.”

Interesting that the Obama Admin thinks that they can pick and choose what is and is not an important story. Obama hardly bends at the knee for the Queen of England, yet he nearly bends all the way over and grabs his ankles for a Saudi king. Let us just remind everyone it was a CNN reporter who asked the question.

QUESTION: And then one unrelated question. When the president met with King Abdullah, there was something that took place which I believe the White House explained as just the president being taller than the king. We took a look at the video, and it does appear that the president actually bowed to King Abdullah. Did he bow or didn’t he?

GIBBS: No, I think he bent over with both to shake — with both hands to shake his hand, so I don’t…

QUESTION: (OFF-MIKE) one hand, that he — he was just…

GIBBS: Well I — I — I — this is…

QUESTION: Did he bow or didn’t he?

GIBBS: No, but I think this meeting was like a week ago, right?

QUESTION: That’s right, but this is something that a lot of people are still talking about today.

GIBBS: I can only imagine it is of great cause and concern for many people struggling with the economy.

Actually Press Secretary Gibbs this is important. Americans want to know why their leader feels the need to bow to anyone!

      Picture don’t lie, but Gibbs and Nobowa sure do!
      Ditto for Biden and the rest of those socialist pirates who have taken our Constitution hostage.

      We know Nobowa bows to Saudi royalty, but will he curtsie to the Somali pirates? Hmmmmm.

      Oh, it was a purposeful bow symbolizing weakness to the Islamic world.

      No diggity, no doubt.

      Nothing Presidents do are off script. The Presidents are some of the best actors that
      have ever lived, and they will never receive
      an Oscar or a Golden Globe. The only Pres who
      was off script was Gerald Ford. Good man, smart
      guy… but bless his little heart, he could trip
      over his own d. on his way to use the restroom.

      Complete klutz.

      When one shows weakness or fear to an enemy, you
      give them power, you draw them in.

      Only a lost, confused child would not question Obama’s motive for doing this.

      I guess we will all find out why in due time.

      [Server interference / to busy? Second attempt...]

      I guess Obowma’s PR-team will now advice him to have an iron bar placed in his back or something to prevent him from ever bowing again. LOL

      Btw: haven’t seen Richard around for some time; is he OK?

      BARACK Obama liked a restaurant’s pizzas so much he has flown the chef 850 miles to make some at the White House.

      The US President got a taste for Chris Sommers’ pizza while campaigning in St Louis, Missouri, last year.

      After Mr Obama’s election win, Chris offered to deliver frozen pizzas to the White House but was told he couldn’t because of security concerns.

      So he took 20lb of dough and three gallons of sauce to Washington.

      Chris was due to cook lunch at the White House yesterday, reported He said: “It’s surreal. It’s a huge honour.”

      Due to global warming concerns, a change in plans has occurred, Chris has to make the 850 mile trek on a Segway. Obama should get his pizza by June!
