Obama ist ein Berliner

Why doesn't this guy just go to Israel and preach another Sermon on the Mount?

'Odd." That's what the chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, said when told of Barack Obama's plan to deliver a major campaign speech at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, right where the Berlin wall used to be, where Ronald Reagan once famously called upon the Soviet Union to "tear this wall down," and not far from where John F. Kennedy once said "Ich bin ein Berliner" — "I am a Berliner" — to show his solidarity with the citizens of what used to be a divided city.

One of the problems that Frau Merkel has is that the Obamessiah is worshiped more in Deutschland than here. The mayor of Berlin is all for Obama making this speech.

This NY Sun writer does not speak German. God bless President Kennedy, but when he said "Ich bin ein Berliner" He was actually calling himself a type of doughnut called a Berliner. "Ich bin Berliner", is what he meant to say. It's like, instead of saying "I am Danish", you say "I am a danish".
