    Default In Germany, Barack Obama urges joint fight against terror

    In Germany, Obama urges joint fight against terror
    Associated Press
    Before an enormous crowd, Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama on Thursday summoned Europeans and Americans together to "defeat terror and dry up the well of extremism that supports it" as surely as they conquered communism a generation ago.
    "The walls between old allies on either side of the Atlantic cannot stand," Obama said, speaking not far from where the Berlin Wall once divided the city.
    "The walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. The walls between races and tribes, natives and immigrants, Christian and Muslim and Jew cannot stand," he said.
    Obama said he was speaking as a citizen, not as a president, but the evening was awash in politics. His remarks inevitably invited comparison to historic speeches in the same city by Presidents John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, and he borrowed rhetoric from his own appeals to campaign audiences in the likes of Berlin, N.H., when he addressed a crowd in one of the great cities of Europe.
    "People of Berlin, people of the world, this is our moment. This is our time," he said.
    Police spokesman Bernhard Schodrowski said the speech drew more than 200,000 people.
    Obama's speech was the centerpiece of a fast-paced tour through Europe designed to reassure skeptical voters back home about his ability to lead the country and take a frayed cross-Atlantic alliance in a new direction after eight years of the Bush administration.
    Republicans, chafing at the media attention Obama's campaign-season trip has drawn, sought to stoke doubts abut his claims.
    In Die Welt, the German publication, Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, R-Mich., said: "No one knows which Obama will show. Will it be the ideological, left-wing Democratic primary candidate who vowed to 'end' the war rather than win it, or the Democratic nominee who dismisses the progressing coalition victory as a 'distraction'? Will it be the American populist who has told supporters in the United States that he will demand more from our allies in Europe and get it, or the liberal internationalist hell-bent on being liked in Europe's salons?"
    Obama met earlier in the day with German Chancellor Angela Merkel for a discussion that ranged across the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, climate change, energy issues and more.
    Knots of bystanders waited along Obama's motorcade route for him to pass. One man yelled out in English, "Yes, we can," the senator's campaign refrain, when he emerged from his car to enter his hotel.
    Obama drew loud applause as he strode confidently across a large podium erected at the base of the Victory Column in Tiergarten Park in the heart of Berlin.
    He drew loud applause when he talked of a world without nuclear weapons and again when he called for steps to counter climate change.
    Obama mentioned Iraq, a war he has opposed from the start, only in passing. But in discussing Afghanistan, he said, "no one welcomes war. ... But my country and yours have a stake in seeing that NATO's first mission beyond Europe's borders is a success."
    He referred repeatedly to the Berlin airlift, launched by the Allies 60 years ago when the Russians sought to isolate the Western part of the city. If they had succeeded, he said, Communism would have marched across Europe.
    "Where the last war had ended, another World War could have easily begun," the presidential candidate said.
    Now, he said, the enemy is different but the need for an alliance is the same as he cited terrorism and the extremism that supports it. "This threat is real and we cannot shrink from our responsibility to combat it," he said.

    I doubt 200,000 Europeans would show up to fall asleep at one of John McCain's speeches.

    I just get the feeling that everything he does is just for show. Who is behind the mask?

    What's behind any politician's mask? I fail to see why Obama is the sudden focus of suspicion when every politician wears one.

    Hell, the Japanese coined the 3 faces theory.

    McCombover makes another retarded mistake

    Remember, last month, when McCain gave the campaign speech in Canada? Most of us remember. McCain doesn't:


    In his interview with NBC's Kelly O'Donnell, which will air on NBC's Nightly News tonight, McCain questions whether Obama should have given a speech in Berlin before becoming president.

    "I would rather speak at a rally or a political gathering any place outside of the country after I am president of the United States," McCain told O'Donnell. "But that's a judgment that Sen. Obama and the American people will make."



    However, on June 20, McCain himself gave a speech in Canada -- to the Economic Club of Canada -- in which he applauded NAFTA's successes. An implicit message behind that speech was that Obama had been critical of the trade accord. Also, McCain's trip to Canada was paid for by the campaign.


    Just another small gaffe by the GOP nominee. McCain doesn't have to deal with facts. He can just make things up.

    Would expect nothing more from someone who is running for President of the World.

    He's already got your support, Grimm. Your statement must be partially true!

    So, I guess we can call McCain's trips to Columbia and Mexico as a sign that he's running for President of Latin America.

    CAUSE HE'S MUSLIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111

    or at least, that's what the people who will be voting for McCain told me. Don't vote for "Barry". Then proceeds to post pictures of Obama in traditional Muslim clothing while visiting a different country, side by side with a young McCain in the military. Then tell me "SEE TEH DIFFERENCE????"

    One of the guys at my job, who's voting for McCain, sent me that e-mail, too. I told him that people who keep playing the Muslim card are just using it as a smokescreen to cover up the fact that they don't want a person of color as President. Ironically, Jeremiah Wright disproves the Muslim label, since no Muslim would have a Christian pastor for 20 years.
