Ultimate Snub Fest: World Leaders Refuse to Shake Bush's Hand During G20 Photo-Op


www.rinf.com

CNN’s Rick Sanchez highlighted yesterday that during last weekend’s G20 Economic Summit, leaders from around the world refused to acknowledge or shake hands with President Bush as they walked on stage for a photo-op. As Sanchez explained, everyone was “greeting each other and shaking hands, but Bush walks with his head down like the dejected most unpopular kid in high school.”

Why woudnt they shake hands with Bush, he is just lame duck anyway. They are really waiting to shake hands with Obama!

It is strange though that Bush did not volunteer to shake hands with anyone either. He knows the G 20 was one of his last little things !

Not that Bush does not know these people personally, he probably realized that the axis of power is now shifting to countries like Russia, China and India and as we read in some other thread US dominance will wane in the next few decades

I must say that I am by no means a "bush fan".
But honestly what I just seen was sad. The man still represents America. They should have sucked it up and shook his hand. At the very least show him the respect that he did not show them.

Yes. It makes them look bad for not shaking our President's hand. I think they could have at least showed a little courtesy for our representative.

Who did the snubbing?
Looked to me like Bush was the one who refused to extend his hand, maybe he knew ahead of time that he would be snubbed so he made the first move but just based on that little snippet it looked like he did the snubbing.

I partially agree.

For the record I hate what he has done to this world! and I blame the US people for putting him in power!

But I did feel for him if it was a blatant snub. Even Gordon B watched him go by.

Maybe George B was snubbing them? Something was obviously a miss before they came out.

what do you expect, the man ignores the views of almost everyone in the G20 as regards his "war on terror" in iraq, he ignores everyone in regard to the kyoto treaty, he provokes russia into a belligerent stance after 20 years of hard work and progress and generally destablises the security situation around the globe.

personally i'm surprised no-one's punched him yet.

I watched without speakers so maybe I wasnt influenced by Sanchezs comments and I really did not get the feeling that it was Bush who was snubbed.

The Illuminati have obviously taken all power from Bush, he is just a prop and EVERYONE knows it.

The Man deserves to be snubbed, although he's not responsible for all the ills that came out of America. He's simply the front man, still, he's been paid handsomely. I'm sure he doesn't mind being hated. I think he revels in it.

Then you have to look at some of the leaders who are refusing to shake his hand. They're just as bad as him, if not worse. They've been licking his ass for the last ten years and been taking all those nice little incentives on offer.

This is nothing but a publicity stunt. Smart, I'll give them that.

He doesn't deserve to be snubbed. He has had no significant role in this economic melt down. It's the federal reserve that deserves to be snubbed!

They could have already shook his hand before hand or something. It is just we are assuming that they are snubbing him when he made no effort to shake their hands either. We cannot get the whole story from just a video.

Or he could have done what politicans have always done and not gave into the influence of money.People with power ie politicians have always had to battle against those with money wanting power...nothing new,has always been that way.But he caved in like obama and most other politicians..From Bitain to France to America all these politicans should be dragged out by the scruff of the neck and hanged for treason.Id do it myself,but im a wimp.

Yesterday CNN picked up that the bloggers were reporting this erroneously. Bush wasn't snubbed. He wasn't shaking hands in that particular clip because he already had his own photo op where the world leaders approached him and him alone and shook hands with him. If anything he got special treatment b/c he's the only one that I know of that got his own photo op. This story is just a case of bad reporting, nothing more to see here.

Gotta love the spin the socialistas try to put on this. It's sad, really. Can someone provide us with at least one freeze frame of that video of Bush offering his hand and nobody accepting?

Um... I don't think Obama has given in. He insisted on using public financing during his campaign, and, he hasn't given into corporate donors, and, he has pretty much banned lobbyists from working with him during hist transition period. The only thing Obama has given into would be the Clintons.

And, how do most politicians not give into money? I'd like to see examples of this. I think it is more often than not that politicians do give into money.

Poor manners at the highest level of diplomacy


I felt really sorry for Bush when watching that video... he sort of looks at Gordon Brown to say "et tu Brute?", and Brown just stares back at him blankly. Pretty harsh treatment overall.

It did seem that Bush didnt really engage though, he just walked in looking at the floor. Im surprised Berlusconi didnt hug Bush, he normally goes out of his way to be friendly!

Could it be that the Europeans didn't want to talk to Bush because of their stereotype they have of us? Europeans tend to think of us as stupid, immature, and arrogant. Maybe they thought by being closer to him they would become more arrogant?

You're totally wrong about him not giving in to corporate donors. Obama's contributors read like a who's who of Wall St. Banksters: Bear Stearns, Credit Suisse Bank, Goldman Sachs, CitiGroup, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley and UBS just to name a few. Look it up, you might be surprised. And just to stay on topic:
I really don't care who does or doesn't shake Bush's hand.
