Our President Just Dropped Something

***Read more on this issue on We The People Talk. My column will be posted tomorrow morning.***

You’ve seen the video. You’ve heard pundits talking about it. Our President bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. There’s no question about it. If you’ve seen the video, Obama without a shadow of a doubt bows to King Abdullah. If you haven’t seen the video, enjoy:

Whether you think that is wrong or right, whether it’s a big deal or not, what is a big deal is the White House’s response: “It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah.”

I understand that our President is in a “learn as you go” situation (my understanding does not equate my condoning). There are similarities between learning a new, tough position, such as the Presidency, and learning a simple position, such as being an Illinois Senator. One similarity would be admitting when you have made a mistake, or being man enough to stand up for what you believe to be right.

Neither of those are true with this situation. President Obama should have either said, “Whoops. What I did was a mistake,” and shrug his shoulders and laugh it off. You know, sort of how he handles the mishaps with all of his Cabinet picks.

Or, our President should have said, “Yes, I did bow to the King. Sue me.”

Instead, he coils up like a spineless jellyfish, if in fact jellyfish coil up. I leave you with this funny cartoon I received this morning:

obama

And from a listener, friend and writer, Stu Tarlowe of KCNewsWatch.com, his thoughts:

Every day, it seems, more and more of the real Barack Obama, his real character and his real agenda are revealed.

He demands corporate CEOs resign, and orders American corporations to merge with foreign ones. He presents the Queen of England and her Prime Minister with ceremonial gifts that, rather than being chosen for historical or diplomatic significance, represent little more thought than a Wal-Mart gift card. And both he and his only-marginally-competent Secretary of State stand on foreign soil (soil that Americans died to defend) and apologize for America!

Saturday Night Live trivializes his dictatorial meddling in the private sector by reducing it to absurdity and not only refuses, as does the rest of the mainstream media, to make him the target of critical humor, but continues to refer to him as “a super-cool Black guy”, one to whom they are obviously still in thrall.

To those of us who have studied history, and particularly to those who have studied how megalomaniacal despots (especially those on the Left) have come to power, it becomes more obvious each day just where the United States of America is headed under Barack Obama, but the legions of apologists and enablers who populate his personality cult don’t seem to be able to see it, or are still in perverse denial.

In fact, I wonder which is lower: how low the Obama-tons bend over backwards to rationalize and justify where he is taking this country, or how low Obama himself (who merely nodded — as was proper protocol — at the Queen of England) bent when he bowed like a supplicant (or, worse, like a slave!) before the King of Saudi Arabia?

But how can a man who respects neither our flag nor our Constitution nor our free enterprise system, a man who has palled-around for years with card-carrying America-haters, a man whose wife felt pride in her country only when her husband was nominated for president, be expected to know that no American citizen, let alone the President, bows before a foreign monarch?

Then again, because the holy cities of Mecca and Medina are located in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi king, as the protector of those cities in accordance with Sharia law, is regarded as deserving special respect from all Muslims. Maybe that’s why U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama bowed before the King of Saudi Arabia (and may have even kissed his hand)!

    If, as the “spin” is now telling us, BHO really did drop something, it was likely his little pocket-sized copy of “Das Kapital”, “Mein Kampf” or “Rules for Radicals”!
