Video: Obama snubbed on Saudi receiving line?

(HotAir h/t -- found at Ms. Underestimated)

Today POTUS, or PrezBO as I like to call him, paid his first visit in the Middle East this week to Saudi Arabia. This video from a bit of him on the “Welcome Line” with King Abdullah CLEARLY shows that few there want to acknowledge him on that line. Watch in slow motion that Barack clearly extends his hands several times, yet nobody accepts his hand. He finally does get a response from the last man in this brief clip. I’ve recorded it in slow motion so you can clearly see that he gets no love from the first 3 or 4 folks in the line. If you watch the woman, it appears she takes his hand, but as she pulls hers back, you can clearly see she was grasping Abdullah’s hand and Obama is pulling his back to his side. They only extend their hand for King Abdullah.
