Figures. Cambodian First Lady Gives Obama the Servant Greeting

How does he do it?
Obama embarrasses America again.

Bun Rany, Cambodia’s first lady, gives President Obama a “sampeah” greeting at a tilt usually reserved for servants. (IBD)

The First Lady of Cambodia greeted Barack Obama like he was a towel boy.
And, of course, our clueless president thought it was ‘cool.’
Investor’s Business Daily reported:

So amid all the colorful and flirty photos from President Obama’s first tour of Southeast Asia, what did he actually accomplish? As usual, he served himself politically in what was largely a Potemkin mission abroad.

It was obvious enough from the rubelike gaffes that the president hasn’t been particularly interested or attentive to the affairs of Thailand, Burma or Cambodia as he made his first trip since his re-election. It was pretty much all style over substance…

…On his trip to Cambodia, a country he claimed didn’t deserve a visit due to its strongman government, first lady Bun Rany greeted Obama with a traditional “sampeah” pressed-hands greeting reserved for servants, a little dig that was probably lost on him but not to Asians.

She must be racist.

    He’s such an embarrassment to the office of President.

    Maybe she has found the best way to deal with the fraudulent piece of trash- just publicly humiliate and mock him at every opportunity. Political correctness is a luxury we can no longer afford. We have been lied to, had our assets stolen and devalued, had the election stolen through massive fraud and we will soon see third world healthcare become our norm. Our children and our moral standards are being perverted at every turn and the foul mouthed mental midgets are being touted as standards to emulate. Our Congress and the courts have abandoned reason and conscience. Respect should only be given when it is earned. Obama deserves no respect- he’s a farud, a cheat and a fake whose ultimate goal is to destroy our republic and our way of life.

    You flatter his intelligence by claiming his faux pas were caused by his interest.

  • Whiskeytangofoxtrot

    He is not only our own worst enemy, he’s his own worst enemy! After his ham handed pawing of An San Suu Kyi, he couldn’t get a job as an outhouse attendant in her country!

    They told me that if I voted for Mitt Romney the president would embarrass me overseas, and they were right!

  • JoeThePimpernel

    Hussein hasn’t figured out yet that in order to cement their US workers’ paradise his fellow-travelers have to make him a martyr.

  • Sasja

    To borrow a phrase from Rush.

    Barry and his sycophants are “glittering jewels of colossal ignorance.”

  • BillWhit

    Obama is the embarassment, not only to the Office of the President but to America! Never has America had such a Failed, Arrogant, Deceitful, Lying person like Barack Soetoro! Or is his name Obama? No one really knows who this son of a twobit whore is! I pray Psalms 109:9 for this Domestic Enemy of our Great Nation! Over Bengazi, he should be put on Trial for Treason and if found guilty, Executed like the maggot he truly is!

    #6 Exactly what I’m afraid of. Remember Rwanda?

    Unless John Stewart mentions it, the “Santa Clause crowd” could care less.

    I don’t believe the First Lady of Cambodia was trying to humiliate Barack Hussein. (Why would she?) To Western eyes, a greeting with the hands at nose level or higher, looks a little bit absurd. Not very democratic, if you will. And she knew it, no doubt. Compare with Barack’s hands!

  • KansasGirl

    What a schmuck.

    The First Lady of Cambodia greeted Barack Obama like he was a towel boy.

    That’s about what he’s worth.

  • Sasja

    Steve the clueless. I’m sure you can figure out for yourself why she would want to humiliate our esteemed leader. This “greeting” was intentional and was played to her people.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    She knows a wash room attendant when she sees one.

  • Steve

    My dear Sasja 14 – Perhaps you could tell me why Bun Rany would find it advantageous – for her, or for Cambodia – to publicly humiliate the President of the U.S. ?
    (Or perhaps not…)

  • Steve

    Your problem (as Americans) is not that people abroad are full of contempt for Barack Hussein. Your problem is rather that they have him as an idol.
    — A minister från the ’Liberal’ party here, went to the Dem’s Charlotte convention: ”The Democrats are like a sister party to us”, she said.
    – Federal debt? ”Eh? Anything wrong there” Unemployment? ”Eh? Worse than here?” Benghazi? ”Yes, the video! 5 million views now!”
    — If you get your information from mainstream media, well, the problems are no problem for you… You’ve never heard of them!

    Was Scary Mooochelle Moocher Obama there?

  • jharp

    You have got to be kidding me.

    Now you’re whining about how Obama responds to someone greeting him?

    Get a life. And try offering something constructive. Or you’ll lose again. Even worse.

    Can’t wait until the day Hillary announces her run. She will crush your candidate.

    Steve, perhaps the humiliation was aimed less at the office than you seem to think.
