Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall! ~ Ronald Reagan
Three American statesmen made trips to deliver historical speeches in Berlin: 1) JFK's "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech in 1963, 2) Ronald Reagan's "Tear down this wall!" speech in 1987, and 3) Barack Obama's 2009 non-speech speech which in a revelatory article by National Review's Rich Lowry could be titled, "Ich bin beschäftigt" – i.e., I'm busy. President Ronald Reagan speaking in front of the Brandenburg Gate at the Berlin Wall, June 12, 1987.Although Barack Obama, after only one year in office, has visited more countries than any other U.S. president in history, he does not have time to accept German Chancellor Angela Merkel's invitation to speak in Berlin next week in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, which Stalin built in 1961 to keep East German citizens separate from the West and mired in the hopeless abyss of communism. What was Obama doing the night the election returns were coming in? According to his press secretary, Robert Gibbs, Obama was enjoying a sycophantic HBO documentary about himself and his presidential campaign rather than watching the election returns. If the Roman despot Nero fiddled while Rome burned, then surely it can be said that Obama watched TV while the Democrat Party crashed and burned in the special elections Nov. 3. Most political experts think that the devastating losses in Virginia and New Jersey are omens of even more galling losses to come for the Democratic Party in the 2010 and 2012 elections.
