How Stupid Does He Think We Are?

That is one of the most desperate attempts to defend a bad position I've ever seen. In an effort to support his position, Civet/Pogo has submitted one photo with an interpretation as ridiculous as the "he didn't bow" claim, and another that's an outright fabrication.

So skewing and misinterpreting isn't enough for you anymore, Civet? Now you'll resort to boldfaced lying?

Pathetic -- the issue still stands, Civet: your Dear Leader grovelling to the Saudi king, and then lying about something that's obvious on video.

I wish you all would have a little more respect for President Bush. In the Arab world there's absolutely nothing wrong with kissing another man on the lips as long as one doesn't slip,,,, the tongue. Surely they taught you that in kung fu classs.

You fellas seem a little thin skinned today for folks that spend your lives pondering wether President Barack Hussien Obama bowed to some Arab or not. Complete with youtube clips.

Where's that hand holdin shot from Crawford?

I don't know about kissing on the lips, 'cause it never happened. I don't know how the Saudis feel about photoshopping to create a lie, either. But I know how Americans feel about it.

As far as the hand-holding shot, go ahead and post it. Bush never denied the incident. And BTW, the king reciprocated a mutual display of friendship for that society. There's a big difference between holding hands with a friend versus having a vassal bow to you in subservience.

Thin skinned? Seems to me you're the one desperately trying to evade the issue here -- grovelling to a foreign king and trying to convince Americans their own eyes are lying to them.

And by the way, the White House's claim that Obama stooped because Abdullah was so much shorter just doesn't hold water. Obama's 6'1-1/2". Abdullah is 5'9" -- only 4-1/2 inches shorter. Queen Elizabeth, on the other hand, is 5'4" -- fully 5 inches shorter than Abdullah and 9-1/2 inches shorter than Obama. And yet the height difference didn't have the same effect when he met the Queen.

As I said before -- it's offensive to have him insult our intelligence by trying to lie about this. That says a lot about how much respect he has for the American people.

I don't get into these parsing of kisses and bows but I thought this kiss video on CNN pretty much made Perino avert her gaze.

I don't see what's so wrong about the former prez kissing a guy in public anyway. I mean she was a cheerleader in college and no one ever got upset over that.

Some people argue that he had no control over his choice to kiss another man or become a male chearleader. Most conservatives would disagree. Choice or predisposition I'd say it's a personal matter and has no affect on how I think of a politician.

Baghdad Bob is among us. When caught with a photoshopped photo, he digs in and steadfastly continues to try to ignore the issue and bluster his way through.

Let's cut to the chase here. When my family met President Bush, he walked into the room, kissed my wife and hugged me. Now suppose for the sake of argument he had walked in and bowed deeply to us instead. Do you think that would've been a different message entirely?

The issue is whether the President should be groveling to a foreign king, and then insulting our intelligence by telling us we didn't see it. Remember?

Was this before or after you were asked for advice and counsel from Putin, the G7, Nato, and the entire far east.
