Obama went to Denmark to bid for Olympics and now, he WON'T GO to Berlin to commemorate the Berlin Wall. Why?

Update:

That anniversary signifies the victory of freedom which AMERICA promotes to every man.

    If Obama were to commemorate the fall of the Soviet Union that would anger his base of support.

    Obama does not want to upset his supporters.

    He didn't want to get ripped aside in conservative media back like he did whilst he went to Copenhagen. I mean, if he won't be able to take time from national subject concerns to recommend bringing the Olympic video games to an American city, how can he justify doing so for the anniversary party of a German success?

    Because he only cares about his own agenda. Notice how is also trying to push socialist health care and democratic officials into office, while General McChrystal is still pending for a response. I mean cmon. It's not like anyone is dying because of our health care right now, but people are dying because there aren't enough troops in Afghanistan. Also remember that bringing down the wall was the combined efforts of Reagan, Bush senior, Gorbachev, and Pope John Paul II. He's too busy to honor these people who devoted their lives to such a great task. To bring liberty to the world. While he is at home doing the opposite.

    Because it's not about him. He has to be the center of the attention otherwise, he won't go. He won't be able to use Berlin wall to bash his own country.

    Obama is a stupid F**K.

    Good one! I had completely missed that comparison.

    Yes, that is a very good question.

    After this, and his oddly restrained response to the Muslim shooter at Ft.Hood, we really should be questioning how our president really does feel about our freedom.

    Well, he didn't even go to Ft. Hood for the weekend to make up for his botched press conference. Instead he'll be golfing at Camp David. Tuesday, he'll get back with Fort Hood.

    3. no one will fund the trip

    4. it is getting too cold and he tends to have colds during winters so snifling and sneezing will not look too good in the tv coverage

    5. he does not look good dressed in winter clothes according to his tailor.

    6. the teleprompter has colds.

  • Why would he want to go mark the anniversary of an event that signifies the death of ideologies he holds dear ? God bless.

    Obama's call isn't for freedom. I'm not quite sure what it is, but it's closer to fellowship. He represents image not action. The last president was a person of action not image. That scared the hell out of the image worshipers. This one is their guy.

    Why would the Magic Ngrow celebrate a REAL accomplishment by a REPUBLICAN?

    Too busy shucking, jiving, and being the traitorous, incompetent Affirmative Action FRAUD that he is .
