Barack is Too Busy: Obama Cancels Plans to Attend Berlin Wall Anniversary - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International

But he has time to go pick up the Nobel Prize he did nothing to earn.

So let's see here, a president who appoints openly communist people into his administration, who likes Chavez and Castro, who refuses to be critical of the Chinese communists' abuse of human rights, who won't celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall, who says any news agency not supportive of him is not news...

Didn't we just have a conservative make a thread asking liberals if they can construct arguments without name calling?? Perhaps you should listen to your fellow conservative (in reverse) and see if you can construct an argument without name calling.....

Given that the United States was THE main catalyst for the fall of the Berlin Wall, I find it it pretty embarrassing that Obama couldn't squeeze in a visit to acknowledge what a much bigger President than himself (Reagan) was able to accomplish without selling the nation's soul to do it.

And if he'd gone, you'd be bashing him for wasting time and tax-payers' money.

if he was going, we'd hear about him taking another frivolous overseas trip. it'd be called a "vacation".

just look at the hubbub over his trip to france to celebrate the anniversary of d-day (which i seem to recall the u.s. playing a major role in as well). i saw someone still harping on that one just the other day.

edit: jinx!

I thought the United States was the "cause" of the Berlin wall.

Must have been something I read a long time ago.
