We saw President Obama shake hands with a lot of short people in Mexico and at the Summit of the Americas. Not once did we see the bow-like, waist-high bend of the patented Obama short-person handshake.
by Asher Embry
We saw Obama bow before the King with our own eyes.
The White House gave a lame excuse which clearly no one buys.
The essence, after several tries; their laughable retort:
Obama had to do it ‘cause Abdullah was so short.
And so we watched quite carefully Barack in Mexico.
We studied with precision just how low his head would go.
Felipe Calderon is really brave but hardly tall.
Obama met el Presidente with no bow at all.
In Trinidad all weekend long the same result held true.
With scads of compact leaders, not a bow appeared in view.
(By that we mean the bow itself, specifically that act;
Of course, verbal prostrations, Barack’s speeches never lacked.)
He’s caught up in this silly lie, he now must disavow.
The lesson learned from Nixon: it’s the cover-up, not the bow.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
