Zu viel zu früh

Obama isn't getting to speak in Germany at Brandenburg Gate to make a dramatic speech as John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan did. I guess he couldn't "speak that into being."

But since symbolism is everything, Obama is doing the next best thing. He is speaking in front of "the Siegess'e (victory column) monument — or "Goldelse" ("Goldlizzie"), as Berliners affectionately dub it because of a golden statue of the goddess of victory that crowns the monument."

I really do believe that this over the top thing that Obama and the media is participating in, is going to backfire. I don't think it's just Jesus that is rolling his eyes at all this.
