Obama Lookspin in Araby: the Non-Bow Bow

Friday, April 10th, 2009

The White House wants you to know that President Obama’s deep bow from the waist to the Muslim King of Saudi Arabia was not a bow at all.

A White House “aide” says the photo showing the President doubled over in what appears to be an act of unprecedented obeisance for an American Chief of State is being misunderstood. According to the spinspeak from aide, the President “grasped the King’s hand with two hands” and had to bend over because “he is taller than King Abdullah.”
