White House says we shouldn’t believe our own lyin’ eyes

Ben Smith of Politico reports that the White House is denying the now infamous bow by the President of the United States to the Muslim leader of Saudi Arabia.

But journalist Muhammad Diyab writing in the English edition of the leading Arabic International Daily, Asharq Alawsat, commended the Obama Bow, which was regarded by the Muslim world as a gesture of affection, respect, appreciation and goodwill to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.

If the choice is between the Obama spin machine, now attuned to the American pulse on his offensive and submissive genuflect, and our own lyin’ eyes, we’ll stick with the latter.

    B. Hussein Obama was educated in Muslim schools in Indonesia and is part of a family steeped in Islam. Both his father and stepfather were Muslims.

    He was exhibiting a personal deference to the protector of Mecca. The American people didn’t comprehend who they were electing to lead their nation. This is what stupidity will get you.

  2. Army of One says:

    Of course it’s not a bow. Obama simply dropped his pocket version of the Koran and is bending over to retrieve it.

  3. Kathy says:

    It was the TOTUS’s fault – TOTUS neglected to tell Obama not to bow.

  4. Frank Gray says:

    “Spin” is right! The American President bowing to King Abdullah shows how low we have sunk with this empty suit “President.”

    This current usurper of the President’s office came gift wrapped from another gifted imposter, John McCain.

    Obama, the President of the United States and leader of the free world, bows to a Saudi King who represents a despotic regime noted for its’ human rights violations, a birthplace of terrorists, a symbol of everything that is an antithesis to our system of government, and it’s no big deal?

    I consider myself fortunate to have been born in a republic. I appreciate that as a citizen of a republic, I need not bow to any man or woman. We are all created equal, and blood lines do not make one person superior. This gesture by Obama should rankle every citizen for when Obama bowed as President of the United States, we all bowed.

    He did bow, see the video from the latest angle:

    You guys beat Karl Rove to the punch on this! I saw him on FOX News last night being interviewed by Bill O’Reilly and discussing this same topic. He gave a rather humorous analogy about a man whose wife returned home to find him with another woman. The wife became enraged while the woman prepared to leave. After she was gone, The husband said, “Who are you going to believe, your own lying eyes or me?”
