Obama is an empty suit

Once again Sen. Obama tried to dazzle us with his brilliant oratory skills while in Germany.

Sen. Obama has a great gift of gab but is totally lacking in his knowledge of history. During his attempt at eloquence he stated that the fall of the Berlin Wall was an example of what can happen when all nations speak as one. This one statement shows just what an empty suit this man is.

Those of us who lived during this period know that there were two major powers at that time -- the Soviet Union and the United States of America. We also remember that the Soviet Union had its nuclear armament pointed at the United States and western Europe.

It was during this time that this country had a leader named Ronald Reagan who had the courage to face this evil empire and make a move that brought demonstrators to the streets in the hundred of thousands. He installed the Pershing Missile System in Western Europe and Western Germany, all aimed at the Soviet Union.

At the same time the SDI, or Space Defense Initiative, was inaugurated, which was given the label of Star Wars. This system was designed to take out any launched missile.

Since the Soviet union did not have the resources at the time to counter this threat Mr. Gorbachev came to the peace table and when President Reagan made the statement, "Mr. Gorbachev, Open up this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, Tear down this wall," he had no choice but to comply.

It was not all nations coming together, it was the United States of America exercising its world leadership that brought the wall down.

Mr. Obama has shown once again that he does not care for truth if distortion will serve him better. It is also apparent that the drive-by media finds this totally acceptable behavior, for not one of their anchors made any attempt to point out this falsification of historical fact. All they want is to be blessed by his holiness and to continue to receive his favor. America be afraid; be very afraid.
