You know........after seeing how the right has taken Obama visiting the king of Saudi Arabia, and shaking his hand, as well as appearing to bow, they've gone over the edge. They're trying to call it something other than what it was. Now.......I don't really know how many of you people have been outside the US, but, there are different customs for different countries. If you'd been there, you'd know that. Before we pulled into Jiddah Saudi Arabia, we had to go through two full days of briefings, so that we didn't cause an international incident. No shaking hands with your left, no showing the soles of your shoes to someone, etc. Bitching about this is nothing more than a rampant display of the Ugly American syndrome. What do you guys think? And.......before you invoke Bush Jr., remember........he was holding hands with the prince, as well as bowed to him.
