Normally Muslims kneel to pray and then look up toward Mecca...........  I think O couldn't kneel, but he was looking up in that Muslim way nonetheless.

Obama's behavior at the 9/11 service is compared to Serena Williams' petulant outburst at the U.S. Open.  Here's a snippet:
Quote
... On the same day that this unfortunate incident occurred, another player on the national stage violated the ordinary rules of conduct with equally offensive behavior.  During the nationally broadcast 9/11 ceremony from New York, President Obama stood there in a Bill Clinton pose --  his nose perched high in the air -- seemingly unmoved even as others wept and bowed their heads in prayer.  It was a troubling and incongruous posture for the leader of a nation commemorating the worst terrorist attack in American history.

Obama's expression of remoteness and arrogant disdain was so palpable that the Wall Street Journal chose to feature it on the front page of the Monday edition.  In a striking photograph taken by Kristoffer Tipplaar, Obama is pictured with his nose at a 45-degree angle standing next to George Bush, whose face, furrowed from the effects of eight years in office, is bowed deep in prayer.  In the photo, former President Bush comes across as just the sort of humble and reverent man he is; Obama appears to hold himself above the proceedings, uncomfortable among the ordinary folk gathered for the occasion and deeply contemptuous of everyone there.

When it came time to speak, Obama read woodenly and haltingly, with no sense of emotion, from the prepared text on the teleprompter.  In what the Boston Gazette called "a study in contrasts," Obama delivered an unattributed and ill-prepared reading of Psalm 46.  The audience seemed dumbfounded as to the point of his selection, and Obama offered no clue as to his intent.  It was as if the teleprompter itself had recited Psalm 46 and then shut down, smugly remote and above it all.

Then George Bush rose and addressed the grieving families from the fullness of his heart.  Bush read from a letter by Abraham Lincoln to a mother who had lost five sons in battle.  Like Lincoln, who signed his letter "Yours, very sincerely and respectfully," Bush managed to convey his deep sense of respect and regard for the assembled 9/11 families.  It was surely no accident that those in attendance, including thousands of family members of the victims, broke into spontaneous applause at the conclusion of Bush's moving remarks.

While Obama fulfilled his responsibilities on 9/11, he appeared to do so ungraciously, as if he resented having to commiserate with ordinary folk.  ...

The audience greeted the president with respect, and all observed the four moments of silence, marking the moments when the four planes crashed into the WTC towers, the Pennsylvania field, and the Pentagon, with reverent silence.  Most bowed their heads in sorrowful reflection, and many wept.

But president Obama did not.  He stood through most of the ceremony gazing off into the blue, as if he were some kind of grandee above it all.  No tears ran down his face, even as George Bush fought back his emotions and Laura Bush wept openly.  Obama's nonverbal message that day was, "I am not one of you.  The 'war on terror' that America entered on that fateful day is not my war.  I am superior.  I am privileged.  I can do as I wish, and no one can judge me."

The first lady's office, even more regrettably, was forced to issue a statement denying the absurd claims. If it was the true goal of the accusers to demean the dignity of a very dignified woman, they should congratulate themselves. Mission accomplished.

Hear that Victor??  Take a bow!!!!   :silly:
