President Obama is Machiavellian to the core, and like Machiavelli, who said in his infamous book "The Prince" (1513) the end justifies the means, likewise Obama will do nothing that won't further his political agenda to "remake America" in his own Marxist image. Going to Berlin won't deify Obama, it will reveal him. Furthermore, he knows that whatever words he would say in Berlin would pale in comparison to the words JFK said in Berlin in June 1963 and especially Ronald Reagan's prophetic rhetoric uttered before the Brandenburg Gate on June 12, 1987 – "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"– just two years before the fall of the evil Soviet Empire.
Moreover, the dirty little secret about the Democratic Party, Barack Obama and his fascist minions in the White House is that they were on the wrong side of history. Liberals did not cheer when the Berlin Wall fell. Obama and his socialist colleagues in the academy, in the media, in Hollywood did not have a party of jubilee as the people did in East Berlin, in Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Lithuania, Georgia, Ukraine, Czechoslovakia and in numerous other former Soviet-bloc countries. Reagan's words, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" literally freed hundreds of millions of people from the bondage of communist dictatorships all over the world.
Twenty years later, President Obama, as the anti-Reagan, is trying to rebuild the Berlin Wall brick by brick with fascist policies designed to undermine freedom of all Americas and the liberties of those people around the world yearning for a republic founded on the rule of law. Obama wants to place those same shackles Stalin put on the Soviet-bloc countries on America with his socialist health-care bill, which, if passed, would place government in our lives from cradle to grave.
Furthermore, if Obama signs the upcoming Copenhagen climate-change treaty at the United Nations conference Dec. 7-18, he will, with the stroke of a pen, concurrently destroy America's Constitution and make the U.S. a servile client state of the United Nations into perpetuity.
That's all part of the "change" of which Obama spoke during 2008. Pity few bothered to ask him, "Mr. Obama, can you please expand on what you mean by 'change'? Please be as specific as possible". Perhaps if the Big Media had done its job and asked him that... but they didn't. They were too horny for the guy, too distracted by the tingles in their legs and other appendages and bodyparts to think properly.
If Obama had been asked whether he'd go to the anniversary of the Berlin Wall being torn down, and other questions about stuff that matters to freedom, democracy, the rule of law and human rights, then maybe he'd have been exposed then and lost to McCain-Palin, or, if he lied then, well, today, folks like I wouldn't have to say much to help folks realize that the guy's a liar.
Gotta go... Global's doing a Remembrance documentary as I post this... and it looks good...
