"I did not have 'salutational' relations with that man."
- An NRO reader
, reacting to the Obama administration's bow denial

I can give two-handed handshakes to guys a lot shorter than King Abdullah without bending down, or the other person getting on tiptoes.No, Bush didn't bow, too
. He stooped to receive a medal - specifically, the King Abdul Aziz Order of Merit. The award is reported here
My two cents: heads of state should greet each other as equals.
