Is this our America?

Or is THIS our America?

I know which of these is the land that I LOVE. And I know which of these is the land of the free and the home of the brave. America bows to nobody. Especially not a Saudi king.

Disgusting. That is all I can say too. This evokes so many emotions...it is hard not to scream them all at once.

But then, it goes to show the true nature of Obama. He is willing to bow down to appease whom ever he needs to...I can't believe he did this...but then, I can.

I thought the bowing was meant for those in Japan and what not. I don't think I've ever seen the President bow at the king of Saudi Arabia, interesting what that could imply to say the least.

Keep in mind where most of the terrorists for 9/11 came from

Leslie said exactly what I am feeling....[grrrr]

it was so 'knee jerk' that bow. scared me.......what's the Bible say "teach them as children..."?

Z-"Teach a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
And the Jesuits claim, "Give us a child until they are 7..."
And where did he live, under the "mohammadin" label?
G*D bless and MARANATHA!

Check out the video I posted; it shows the contrast between how BHO "bowed" to the queen but submited to the Saudi king.

I.H.S. this is the customary diplomatic greeting. I suspect you've seen pictures of Bush holding hands with Saudi royalty. This is hardly a big deal.

Or we could give them the sausage (pure pork, of course). That is a sign of a mature nation.

I couldn't believe this when I saw it this morning. I thought somebody had faked it, but when the picture appeared on a number of news pages like ABC and CBS, I knew it was true. The sad thing to me is not so much that Obama groveled to the leader of a country that exports Wahabism, but that half the people in this country apparently agree with his world view.

Ducky -- NO American President has EVER bowed to a king of another nation. It is not customary and is not part of protocol. Holding hands is a normal custom and not a show of submission. What Obama did was symbolic and pathetic. He is a disgrace to our America.

“if we bow to the Saudi king, which the president [Obama] did, which I thought was frankly not very good when President Bush did it.”

That's a quote from Newt Gingrich.

Little Green Footballs (of all places) posted the video of Chucklenuts bowing to the king.

There are other examples, including JFK.

Pitch till you win.
