I read this morning how the man “who has lost all credibility” according to the New York Times delivered a speech from behind 8 inches of bullet-proof glass to 4,500 Berliners at the Brandenburg Gate in Germany where JFK drew a crowd of 450,000 a half century ago with only his words to shield him.
Kennedy’s “Ich Bin Ein Berliner” followed by Reagan’s “Tear down this wall” a little more than two decades later both spoke to our better angels from the very heart of the American Spirit! Obama following Kennedy and Reagan, now that the world is able to see through his facade, is like Alfalfa crooning to Darla after Andrea Bocelli has left the stage (which fully explains the 8 inch glass)! Hilarious, if not so God-awful tragic…for all us Berliners! 😦
Both Kennedy & Reagan had come to Berlin to stand directly in the face of the bullies of their day and call them (Khrushchev & Gorbachev) out! And what did Obama deliver from behind the largest teleprompter (guessing) in human history? “Barack Obama’s message on Wednesday was pure mush, another clichéd “citizens of the world” polemic with little substance. This was a speech big on platitudes and hopeless idealism, while containing much that was counter-productive for the world’s superpower. Ultimately it was little more than a laundry list of Obama’s favourite liberal pet causes, including cutting nuclear weapons, warning about climate change, putting an end to all wars, shutting Guantanamo, ending global poverty, and backing the European Project. It was a combination of staggering naiveté, the appeasement of America’s enemies and strategic adversaries, and the championing of more big government solutions.”~Nile Gardiner, World
“Mush”? The Brandenburg Bully has Europe on her knees, literally raping the flower of innocence, slaughtering Christians worldwide and setting fire to America while extinguishing any hope for freedom in the Middle East…and the Leader of the “Free World” delivers MUSH in Berlin? Putin lectures Cameron on the Butcher of Woolsey & the Syrian Rebels being one and the same, and Obama leaves a pee puddle at the Gate unable to even speak the Bully’s name!
“The Greatest” from the day of JFK inspired the boxing term “Rope a Dope” during his 1974 fight with George Foreman. Could there be a more picture-perfect phrase to capture the essence of this moment in history? Mumbling mush on the ropes in the face of unchecked evil! My question is this. Is the dope merely their appeaser or their accomplice? The families of Ty Woods, Glen Doherty and Seal Team 6 are waiting for the answer!
…and the gathering storm. http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/06/europe-under-sharia.html
