“Ich bin ein Obama”

 

 

Ich bin ein Obama”

 

Berlion crowd_html_235ffdefThousands in Berlin in 2008 and invited guests only in 2013, with no spontaneous crowds at all. Below: A transparent Obama fools no one and erects a new Berlin Wall of glass. CNN excuses Obama’s feeble speech because the Western sun was in his eyes and he could not read his teleprompter. Kennedy never had a teleprompter.

 

President Obama came back to Berlin for some needed adulation after a month of never-ending scandals, from IRS tax persecution of political enemies to spying the entire world, but 98% stayed away from the adoring crowds of his previous visit. “Ich bin ein Berliner” still lives while Obama lies exposed as a Nixon rather than a Kennedy.

 

When Barack Obama gave a speech in Berlin in 2008, he drew a crowd of 200,000. The new speech at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate was a little less popular. White House pool reporter Elmar Jakobs estimated the crowd at only 4,500. Obama’s Berlin crowd was half the crowd of the Tea Party Patriots’ “Audit the IRS” rally held at Washington’s Capitol the same day with an estimated 7-10,000. In 2008, Obama had no record, he was a cipher; a thing upon which the world could gaze and pour their hopes and dreams into. With his empty prose and sketchy rhetoric about hope and change, Obama positioned himself to be whatever you wanted him to be. Now The Reality pulled in. What a difference a failed presidency makes!

Ich bin ein Obama”

 

Galls wall_html_m375a20ddEl transparent Obama no enganya ningú i erigeix un nou Mur de Berlín de vidre. CNN excusa el feble discurs d’Obama perquè el sol de l’occident li venia als ulls i no podia llegir el seu teleprompter. Kennedy no tenia teleprompter. Primera foto: Milers a Berlín el 2008 i exclusivament per invitació el 2013 sense ni un sol espectador espontani.

 

El president Obama ha tornat a Berlín buscant una mica d’adulació després d’un mes d’escàndols sense fi, des de la persecució fiscal per l’IRS dels enemics polítics a espiar tot el món, però el 98% de les multituds entusiastes de la seva visita anterior s’ha evaporat. “Ich bin ein Berliner” segueix viu mentre Obama ha quedat retratat com un Nixon més que un Kennedy.

 

Quan Barack Obama donà un discurs a Berlín el 2008, va atreure una multitud de 200.000. El nou discurs a la Porta de Brandenburg berlinesa fou un xic menys popular. El periodista de guarda de la Casa Blanca Elmar Jakobs calcula només 4.500 espectadors. La multitud d’Obama a Berlín fou la meitat de la manifestació “Auditar l’ IRS” el mateix dia davant el Capitoli de Washington dels Tea Party Patriots estimada en 7 a 10.000. El 2008 Obama no tenia un historial, era un enigma, un objecte que tot el món podia admirar i dipositar les seves esperances i somnis. Amb la seva prosa buida i retòrica vaporosa sobre esperança i canvi, Obama es va situar a ser tot el que volguessis. Ara mana La Realitat. Quina diferència fa una presidència fracassada!

  1. Of course, he meant to say, “Ich bin Berliner.” (“I am a Berliner.”) but, not having the advantage of a script-writer and teleprompter (a la Obama), he literally said, “I am a jelly dough-nut.” Everyone knew what he meant, though, and it was a good sentiment. P.S. Ich habe Berliner sehr gern!

  2. Shifting his strange focus from Russia’s nuclear weapons, Obama said “we can . . . reject the nuclear weaponization that North Korea and Iran may be seeking .” Were Obama given to saying such stuff off the cuff, this would be a good reason for handcuffing him to a teleprompter. But, amazingly, such stuff is put on his teleprompter and, even more amazing, he reads it aloud.

  3. True story. Obama started perspiring after he failed to follow the teleprompter when the sunlight reflected from it.
