I've got to comment on his bowing to the King of the Oil Ticks; symbolically rolling over and offering his belly. I know I'm late on this, but A: I've been short on time and B: I just couldn't imagine any but the most rabidly partisan Obama worshippers making excuses for this. Unfortunately, I was wrong.
Aside from being mad as hell at this idiocy, I have two thoughts on it.
First, there's no way he did this out of ignorance of protocol; it was deliberate. Either his way of physically apologizing for the US being responsible for all evil in the world(such as the arabs not being able to defeat the tiny nation of Israel), or actually offering his neck in subservient manner. Either way, it's flat disgusting, and if the the man had any sense of shame he'd hide his face from us. He's shamed this nation by offering obeisance to a foreign king.
Second: This idiot just gave ammunition to every terrorist, muslim and otherwise, in the world. Especially to the islamists: the President of the Great Satan showed submission to a muslim king. Good God, is there any way this clown could not understand what this would mean to the enemy?
Among Muslim democrats and human rights advocates, utter dejection that the "leader of the Free World" has offered himself as a "subject" of the Saudi monarch; among Islamists, bliss over America's seeming prostration before Salafist Islam; among international bad actors, assurance that America poses no threat; and among our allies, depression about the new systemic instability of the most dependable superpower in history.
