Not Since 1939 Have So Many Germans Turned Out To Hear A Politician in Berlin
Barack Obama is set to speak at the Victory Column in Berlin. The Victory Column commemorates Germany's last military victory over France and Austria in the last 1860's - early 1870's. From that link:
Berlin authorities say that as many as a million people could attend. Four TV stations are broadcasting the entire speech, and the rest are scrambling to secure prime locations at the site.
Originally, the column was in a different location, but Hitler moved it in 1939 to its present location. He too wanted a beautiful stage and backdrop in Berlin. I'll refrain from pointing out the irony here.
Fast forward from 1939 to 2008 and Barack Obama will take the stage at the Victory Column. I'm sure Barack Obama is unperturbed by the military and Nazi history of the Victory Column and only recognizes it as being in U2's video for "Stay (Faraway, So Close!)".
But, okay, I can't help myself, Barack Obama is using propaganda FILMED IN GERMANY MADE POSSIBLE BY THE NAZIS RELOCATING THE FREAKING STATUTE!!!!!!! to woo Americans to vote for him. He's going to have freaking film crews there and the media to make sure the full emotional impact reaches back to the United States.

I just heard Rush say that the latest Fox Poll shows Obama up by only 1 pt. This trip is not working for Obama, apparently.
It wouldn’t make sense to attack his Patriotism and then call him Nationalist. I thought you can’t be both.
I think you should consider not allowing this “messiah” label to be put on every other thread about Obama.
Might have been moderately cute the first ten thousand times, in a juvenile sort of way, but it’s the sort of thing that is going to backfire, big time.
That’s my opinion.
The Messiah is speaking at a monument to the wars that led to the foundation of the German Empire? Not very politically correct, that.
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
What! He showed up in a Sherman Tank?
What a boring speech! Obama sounds like a 10th grader running for student council. eeeyuck (listening on Rush)
Hitler and Obama are both icons of socialism.
Just heard speech on Rush. Those who believe this drivel must be of like mind to
[a bumbling self-serving bureaucrat rather than an evil person. His vanity makes him an easy target for Hogan’s flattery]
and Seargent Schultz
[Schultz is a basically good-hearted man who, when confronted by evidence of the prisoners’ covert activities, will simply look the other way, repeating I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing! (or, more commonly as the series went on, simply I see nothing, nothing!) in order to avoid becoming involved in any way.]
Does anyone think any politician can gather a million people to anything political in the US? Not a chance.
I was just texting with my German friend in Hanover and I asked him if he was falling for that “fraud” Obama. This is what he wrote:
“How can you think that? Despite the rare information about US election business in our news, his visit is a big media deal! Seem’s he’s more tv guy than politician!”
Just watched his speech......meaningless.....unless he is running for King of the world.
Need to use the BO foto in the first post to go with Mussilini foto.
He did not sound presidential. Kennedy told the Russians, not an inch. Reagan told the Russians to tear down the wall. Obama said, "We'll work with the Russians. They aren't so bad after all." and he lectured the Germans, a nation that is really decended from a single tribe, how great America is...but he did not call upon the Germans to adopt the U.S. Constitution...maybe that's because he opposes much in that august document.
He looked like a refugee from a high school oratory class.
Obama can not be "ein Berliner" but maybe he can be "ein Dansk", after all, he is much more of a pastry than Michele is.
P.S. I suspect Jesse Jackson would find that Michele beat him to the castration counter.
People are astounded by the large numbers of attendees at Obama’s speech?
This is Germany in the summer - many are on vacation and they only work 35 hours a week at the most.
They have plenty of time to stand around and listen to speeches.
Reflects my opinion, too. I´m German, and I´ve no say in US elections. So why is he campaigning in my country? He´ll be welcome as US president (just like a President McCain), since he will represent a befriended nation of my country. But he´s no special person to me. Just a senator of a legislative of a foreign country.
You're right. Smug, arrogant BHO pictures are everywhere.
A free rock concert doesn’t either to produce bodies.
A free rock concert doesn’t hurt either to produce bodies.
I’ll just let it stand for what I believe.
Anyone can say anything pleasing to vast numbers of people if they are NOT BOUND TO COMMIT TO KEEP THOSE WORDS.
We can promise people the moon and the willing crowds will expect to receive the moon - if we are not planning to deliver.
Thus it is easy to say and mean what you never intend.
All I want from Obama is his birth certificate cleared up!
