Did President Obama bow to King Abdullah? And does it matter if he did?
Oh my. This is a hot blogging subject! I read a lot of blogs and I've noticed there is an ongoing discussion about whether President Obama bowed to King Abdullah at a formal reception for the G-20 Summit last week in London. I've watched the video many times and I have to say that it certainly looked like he did bow. And he didn't bow to Queen Elizabeth II. I wonder though. Does it matter if he bowed to King Abdullah? I know it's a breach of protocol but is it really worth everyone getting upset over? What do you think? Controversy Over Obama's Saudi Bow. Watch the video: Barack Obama meets the Queen (notice the slight head incline - not a bow):
