Obama seeks to speak at the Brandenburg Gate

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!

I would think it would end with more of a: "Mr. Moon come here to this gate, Mr Moon have you seen my Keys? Mr Moon get me my bus"

Does Barry actually think he can equate with - wait for it - Reagan? I really hope he tries this; can you imagine the 527 campaign commercials?

Mark this on your calendar. Obama will talk about;

- How Reagan won the Cold War without firing a shot

- How he would have won in Iraq with the same strategy

- How Europe "hates us" now and we need to restore a relationship with fellow socialists our friends

The throngs of Greens, anti-war, socialists and other hate AMerica crowds will go wild.

I have to admit, it would be the all time Sister Souljah moment if Obama got up there in front of the throng of Euro trolls and gave a speech basically saying America is the greatest nation on earth because we built the best society - the freest, the hardest working and the most creative. And we will do what it takes- including defending ourselves and our interests by force when necessary- to remain the greatest nation on earth. And we will never allow ourselves to be constrained by the jealous machinations of the global socialists and their enviro-puppets.

If he had the stones to get up there and say something like that, I *might* even actually consider voting for him. Fortunately its a total fantasy.

Ever read about Klaus Wowereit? The decision is all his despite Merkels reservations. A snip;

An open homosexual with a passion for partying, he was once snapped drinking champagne out of the red stilettoed shoe of an ambassador's wife. The city teeters on the verge of financial collapse, debates whether to turn off fountains, close down libraries and raise kindergarten fees, but Wowi finds time to address the annual congress of rubber and leather fetishists. He has argued that Berlin has to define itself as an open and tolerant city, and that it is his bounden duty to welcome men in gimp masks and Lurex. Berliners are not wholly convinced, nor do they buy into the Wowereit slogan that the city is "poor but sexy". Wowereit seems to be marketing Berlin as a decadent metropolis, to make it internationally attractive for curious tourists rather than tackle its basic problems: its run-down schools, its striking doctors and desperate lack of industrial investment.

This guy is a legendary train wreck.Obama will fit right in.

...how does that constitute hate for America?

Because Obama is not your run of the mill Democrat?

Obama has no military service, spent much of his formative youth in another country, has connections to radical muslim groups (via his brother) and is heavily influenced by the marxist teachings that his father believed in.

He attended a muslim school as a child and today runs as a candidate so liberal that supporters of the other primary candidate on the Democrat hopeful list (Clinton) are choosing to cross party lines to vote for McCain.

He has a reputation of sullying the name of Freedom, has promised to pull our military out (which he keeps flipping on) and wants to talk to the leaders of terrorist-supporting nations as equals.

He is the candidate that those who dislike the United States favor. He has the support of Hamas and other such groups. Those who hate the idea of freedom and democracy being spread have thrown in their support for Obama.

He is not your 'run of the mill' Democrat. He is something more.

(and that's not even touch his Rock Star status he has. People used to faint at his speeches.)

" Senator Obama, we KNEW President Reagan !!! You are no Ronald Reagan. "

Thank God!!!!!!!!! Reagan was cool but c'mon, he had Alzheimer's while still in office!!!!!!!! So you're saying that the fewer the neurons, the better the performance? Please, Nancy was his ventriloquist. I love the guy, but sheesh!!

Take a long walk off a short pier. Don't forget the lead underwear.

Since I do not cuss that much, the title (or some derivation, see Bozo) happens to be one of my most used expressions.

Unfortunately, Bozo would not approve; he felt clownery was an epicurean endeavor.

"If they were merely incompetent, then at least SOME of their actions would have been to the benefit of the country."

By the way, I found your pic on myspace...

CongressCritter™: Never have so few felt like they were owed so much by so many for so little.

I think that the stadium in Nuremberg would be more fitting.

Barack is not worthy of such a setting for one of his fluff speeches. He, and his inept foreign policy would never have accomplished what the last US president that spoke at that gate accomplished. Never.

Just a typical, small town, British-American girl...

I think you mean the second to the last president to speak there. Although I'd even give you Bill Clinton if that's who you really meant.


McCain for POTUS so the left can't ruin SCOTUS.

I guess I missed Reagan's second speech. I wasn't aware of him making many public appearances after July 12, 1994.

You're right, although we can expect the obligatory mangled German goetterdaemmerung from the next Democrat to speak there.

either as we all know what his sterling foreign policy record got us.

Great moments (past and future?) at the Brandenburg Gate. My German will be spelled phonetically:

JFK: "Ish bin ein Berliner."

Reagan: "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."

Barack Obama: "What time is my meeting with Hugo Chavez?"



Keep your friends close and your enemies closer, or something equivalent. Isn't there intelligence to be gained by meeting face -to-face even with despots? Is not wanting to meet with these types of leaders just machoistic posturing? Is this necessary? I don't know. The political body language of a nation is comprised of so much more than just financial and military assets.

River of Rumination? Barrel of Bathos?

The greatest single cause of Atheism today is Christians who profess Jesus with their lips & then go and deny him by their lifestyle. That's what an unbelieving world simply finds..unbelievable -Brennan Manning

Wanting to meet with these types of leaders is just masochistic posturing.

A Berliner is a type of pastry.

SO JFK was saying; "I am a Jelly Donut"

Of course that's better than Jimmy Carter accidently calling all of the Polish Nation a bunch of pedophiles.

"Nothing works like freedom, Nothing succeeds like liberty"

Saw it at the Reagan library on the 4th. That is a speech that sends chills up your spine. Just amazing to watch.

Obama would be a fool to try a stunt like this, but given his ego he might think he can pull it off. The opportunity for side by side comparisons would be a media consultant's dream.

After he finishes there, he will probably head for Gettysburg...

"If they were merely incompetent, then at least SOME of their actions would have been to the benefit of the country."

In 1921:
-Adolf Hitler became Chairman of the Nazi Party in his rise to power and prominence in Germany.
-The Communist Party of China was formed with Mao Tse-tung as a founding member.

In that context, your Gettysburg comment is scary!

I think your remark was brilliant.
