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.

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!
