Oh man, I just love when Barack treats us to some great humor! It is a recession you know, so this free entertainment is much appreciated. The latest little gaffe is a really doozy. I like how he exerts zero effort in trying to cover it. That either shows that he doesn’t care at all, or he had no idea what he was talking about at the time. Either one is very upsetting. Watch the gaffe below:

In order to dispell one of the ludacris excuses some people have come up with, I found this video of Barack shaking hands with various shorter people. In none of the pictures is he bowing like he did to King Abdullah.
**Disclaimer- As I’ve said numerous times, I didn’t think Barack was being submissive to Islam by bowing to Kind Abdullah, I just don’t think he knew what to do. In the video, there is another picture of Barack and Kind Abdullah shaking hands at a different event, and there is no bow. So this little gaffe is nothing more than that; a simple gaffe. I doubt it will happen again, but if it does, we then have something to start a fuss over.
Barry O. continued his streak of international missteps last week when he bowed to Saudi Arabian King Abdullah. Apparently, some one forgot to brief Barack before his trip and tell him that is off limits. Well, if you watch the video of the bow (You can watch it here if you missed it.) you can see that it is CLEARLY a bow, or as IMAO put it, a “curtsy”. Honestly, I don’t have a huge problem with the fact that he bowed. Now, do I think he should have bowed? Heavens no. But the people that are saying his bow was “submission to Islam” (yes I read that on a blog) are crazy. The reason behind the bow is simple: Barack doesn’t know what to do. He’s confused, and the “fresh”, “new”, “young”, “changed”, “hip” staff that is supposed to be instructing him is even more clueless. Someone needs to show them all the ropes before the next overseas trip.
Anyway, anyone that has seen the video should clearly see that he bowed. However, some people that are drinking the strongest of all the kool-aids don’t believe that is the case. This weekend I watched a woman on a Fox News show watch the video and tell the conservatives in the room they were insane because they thought he bowed. Look woman, I don’t what video you’re watching, but he DEFINITELY bowed. And on top of that Gibbs had the audicity to say that it wasn’t a bow and there was no need to talk about it. I think what these people in denial don’t understand is that this could be much less of a big deal if they would admit the truth. They are going to have a much easier time convincing Americans that he bowed because he didn’t know proper protocol rather than he didn’t bow at all. Because he bowed. There should be no debate over that. At all.
Ultimately, Barack will learn what he is supposed to do in different conditions. Until then, we get these kind of gaffes that we can all sit back and watch people over react to. Barack’s bow was an empty bow. It meant nothing, he simply thought that was what he was supposed to do. If I am wrong, however, we have something to worry about.
What do you think of the bow? Are you as convinced as I am that he definitely bowed? Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yesterday I posted a video of Barack losing his place on the teleprompter and taking a good long pause to recoup his thoughts. His mind was clearly somewhere else when he lost his spot, which led me to believe that he really had no idea what he was saying, but just calling words off of a prompter. What do you think about the Golden Boy’s reliance on the teleprompter? I personally have no problem with the use of a teleprompter, as long as the guy using it knows what he’s talking about rather than just reading off of a screen. Vote below in today’s poll of the day!
I saw this at Pundit Pawn, so I decided to bring it over here. This further substantiates the fact that the Chosen One doesn’t actually form his own opinion, or know how to think for himself. Watch what happens after a slight malfunction from his little buddy (teleprompter).
