Berlin wall came down 20 years ago. Why did Obama mention only Kennedy and himself in his speech today?

President Ronald Reagan was the main reason why the Wall came down. So why is the media and insane Obama not mentioning all the wonderful things that happen during the Reagan Administration.

    Because our president is so stuck on himself he can't stand giving anyone else recognition for ANYTHING that they did. If it doesn't involve him, he won't either say anything about it, or anything good about what they did.

    Well, after all, EVERYTHING is about OBAMA. In fact it was his miraculous birth that gave President Reagan the impetus to demand that the wall be torn down. As for mentioning Kennedy's involvement, he's giving ole Teddy a posthumous reach around as payment for getting him elected.

    "President Ronald Reagan was the main reason why the Wall came down"

    Exactly. Gorbachev and the German people had almost nothing to do with it. If Reagan hadn't given his speech that day, the whole world would be communist by now.

    The wall came down because Russia could not afford to run east.

    Reagan's dead and the Berlin wall is in Germany. The wall has no bearing on what is going on in this country today and has had none since it was built. Reagan helped with that for a signature on his presidency nothing more.

    He is no Kennedy. Kennedy reduced corporate income taxes, personal income taxes, top marginal income taxes, and tariffs. JFK wanted to lower capital gains as well...

    Yeah, let's see someone prove me wrong, just study JFK's policies...

    Kennedy did not use bailouts, he did not expand government, he did not socialize or take over companies either...
