Move over, Reagan. Barry's here!

Barry's going to run around Europe and the Middle East later this year, and Germany's Spiegel Online offers this crass bit:
No location [for the Obama speech in Germany] has been announced, but the Berlin state government has reportedly been asked whether Obama can speak in front of the Brandenburg Gate, where former US President Ronald Reagan gave a famous speech in 1987. Reagan made a show of asking then-Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down" the Berlin Wall.
Yeah, we can hear it without his mouth having to move:
[more or what escapes from Barry's pie hole beneath the fold]
We believe that freedom and security go together, although the terms do not mean what I think they do. We believe that the advance of human liberty can only strengthen the cause of world peace. There is one sign the global community can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace in such a way as to produce hopechangehope.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for your world and for the moon, where, like JFK, I promise to go, if you seek enforced harmony: Come here to this gate! Mr. Moon, set up little tables with refreshments at this gate! Mr. Bank Ki-moon, re-construct this wall so we can negotiate a more reasonable and realistic end to global communism, one which takes into account the environmental concerns of leading scientists and Al Gore, one which consults perhaps unpopular world leaders like Hugo Chavez and Nancy Pelosi.
The crowd will applaud boisterously, of course, for it will be carefully selected and contain no women wearing the hijab.
Obama wants to speak in President Reagan's spot, a place where the President continued his march toward ending the cold war in victory for the United States, and I'm all for it. Barry's peeps think that little man in this moment can compare favorably to Reagan in that. What better way to display Obama for the intellectual midget that he is than to have Obama do it for himself in front of all the world's cameras.
If you seek to look the fool, Obama, go there to that gate! Mr. Obama, give your relatively pathetic little speech at that gate! Mr. Obama, make the Dems pine for Hillary!
