Heil Obama!

As we know, Our Savior Barack Obama will be giving a much anticipated campaign speech today at 7pm local time in Berlin, Germany.  Not only will the locals be flipping a $786,000 tab for the non-President’s visit (how nice of him to let the Germans pay for his campaign bills), Hot Air picked up that the campaign’s chosen site has a bit of a Nazi past

This, the same day that he visited the Wailing Wall!  The nerve of this guy never ceases to amaze me. 

The “Victory Column” (Siegessäule) was initially built to commemorate Prussia’s waylaying of Denmark, Austria and France back in the Otto Von Bismarck days whose expansionism united modern Germany and formed the Second Reich.  Where the Nazi Third Reich fits in is the fact that Hitler moved the “Victory Column” to its current location, built a taller column, and celebrated German expansionist polices eventually led directly to World War II. 

Obama’s not a Nazi (he’s much closer to a communist anyway), but a little sensitivity would be appreciated!

Nonetheless, let me get this straight:  Obama went to the Wailing Wall on the same day he’s speaking to Germans at a site chosen by Hitler to represent the power of the Third Reich, while having the locals pay for his campaign speech which is designed not for them, but for an American audience: now that’s audacity!!!

Hat tip: Malkin.

UPDATE:  Obama’s given the speech and it was pretty obnoxious: he pretended not be a candidate, but a “citizen of the world” (laugh — is that his version of an “international test”?); teaching the Germans his view of history without any real context; knocking America on race and torture (obligatory for Libs, of course); he all but admitted that he was the Chosen One to get the world together save us from misery; etc.

“Citizen of the world”…nice way to show you’re proud of your country!

I’d love to hear somebody ask this guy what is great about America…frankly, I don’t think we’d get an answer since he wants to tear down every tradition in this great country that means something.

On top of everything else, Obama tried to apologize for Red America overseas to Europeans — who we owe nothing to, by the way! I hope pieces of that speech are used in Republican attack ads the moment Obama’s team tries using them to bolster his campaign at home. I also hope Fox News’ Bill Hemmer asks Obama a few tough questions and not allow himself to be condescended to like Katie did.

Think of it!! Lifting the great Ronald Reagan’s “Citizen of the World” line.
