My How the Mighty Have Fallen, 2008 Candidate Obama Berlin Speech 200,000 … Only 4,500 for President Obama Today


Looks like Obama has also lost that Lovin’ Feeling of the German people as well … Obama’s tried to “TAP” into Germany and fails.

The International rock star status of Barack Obama has gone the way of the do-do bird.  Remember in 2008 when Barack Obama spoke in front of over 200,000 people. Everyone fawned over the “Hope & Change” candidate. However, that was then, this is now and Obama experienced a far different experience this time.  As stated at the Weekly Standard, Obama spoke to only 4,500 people today in Berlin, Germany at the Brandenburg Gate. It would appear that the Germans have wizened up to Obama’s game. It was simply Barack Obama’s Spinal Tap moment. Not only does the emperor have no clothes, he also has no audience, influence or magic.


Marty: The last time Tap toured America, they where, uh, booked into
10,000 seat arenas, and 15,000 seat venues, and it seems that now,
on their  current tour they’re being booked into 1,200 seat
arenas, 1,500 seat arenas, and uh I was just wondering,
does this mean uh…the popularity of the group is waning?
Ian:   Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no…no, no, not at all. I, I, I just think
that the.. uh.. their appeal is becoming more selective.

2008 When Obama had the World BS’d

Just curious, what was the point why Obama went to speak at the Berlin Wall? Could it have been any more weak? Could Obama have looked any smaller? President John F. Kennedy spoke at the Brandenburg Gate (VIDEO) following the Berlin airlift. President Ronald Reagan (VIDEO) made his famous “tear sown this Wall” speech there. Obama, well Obama spoke from behind a glass wall and just looked small. Just how “Lost in Smallness” could Obama be? Who on earth thought that having him speak here was a good idea? The visual of 200,000 vs. 4500 is simply embarrassing.

When he arrived here on Tuesday evening ahead of a full day of talks — capped by a speech at the Brandenburg Gate — the reception was far more restrained.

Almost five years later, Germans have undergone “a brutal sobering up” with regard to Mr. Obama, said Ralf Fücks, who heads the board of the Heinrich Böll Foundation, a nonprofit political organization in Berlin. It is, he said, as overdone as the euphoria of 2008, but also a bit alarming.

Mr. Fücks and other Germans say there are several reasons for the change in attitude. The most commonly cited: the president’s inability to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay, continued killings by American drones and, most recently, the disclosure of an extensive program for surveillance of foreigners.

      Yup the ‘Honeymoon ‘ is over with the rest of the world as they are now realizing the transparency of this Emperor. Without his teleprompter he is a complete flop. What did he expect, the red carpet to be rolled out for him and him only.

      He’s even a flop with the teleprompter!!!!!

      Yep, I’m sure he expected an overwhelming welcome in Germany because of his deranged mind and his inflated ego.

      He’s a mess at the G8 Summit Meeting, especially with President Putin. He’s wasting all of our money and putting our country in even more debt not to mention the dislike that is growing. This trip should not of been allowed!!!!!!

      It’s also a waste of time and money for Michelle and the girls to make a vacation out it all. Malia and Sasha look like they would of much preferred summer camp. Can’t even think how they are going to enjoy a visit to Robben Island to see the penitentiary, a prison for political criminals. You can keep Obama there for all we care.

      Don’t stroke out thinking about how many schools will be named for our first woman president in 2016 …. LOL

    6. katts on June 22nd, 2013 10:47 am

      Stroke out? Oh so wrong LOL.

      I marvel as history repeats itself insidiously leading our nation down its perfectly declining path. A Hillary election would be a karmatic chapter in the American version of “The Rise and Fall of Great Nations,” with a continued academic dumbing down, rising poverty, rampant illegal immigration, and the further destruction of civil liberties.
      She can do no other.

      I even once entertained a Hillary vote for her ruthless self.

      So.. If Mooch can have poverty ridden, illegal alien namesakes so can Hillary – Equal is equal, fair is fair.
      She who captures the most schools wins.

      [...] As Obama sat writing Bernanke’s epitaph other forces have been writing his. In Berlin the once great world Messiah, the one for whom just being elected was worthy of a Nobel Prize, found himself in front of a few thousand skeptical German’s. The same place just five years earlier he had addressed hundreds of thousands adoring fans. Throngs of people who hung on his every word. The sparse crowd this time made the key line from his first speech more poignant than ever. [...]
