Obamateurism of the Day

posted at 8:05 am on November 19, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Barack Obama couldn’t squeeze a visit to Berlin into his schedule to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, but he did carve out enough time to make a video for the celebrations.  The thrust of his video greeting to Berliners was that the fall of the Wall was a good thing — almost as good as Obama getting elected.  The Boston Globe’s Jeff Jacoby wasn’t terribly impressed:

PRESIDENT OBAMA was too busy to attend the celebrations in Germany this week marking the fall of the Berlin Wall 20 years ago. But he did appear by video, delivering a few brief and bloodless remarks about how the wall was “a painful barrier between family and friends” that symbolized “a system that denied people the freedoms that should be the right of every human being.” He referred to “tyranny,” but never identified the tyrants — he never uttered the words “Soviet Union” or “communism,” for example. He said nothing about the men and women who died trying to cross the wall. Nor did he mention Harry Truman or Ronald Reagan — or even Mikhail Gorbachev.

He did, however, talk about Barack Obama.

“Few would have foreseen,” declared the president, “that a united Germany would be led by a woman from [the former East German state of] Brandenburg or that their American ally would be led by a man of African descent. But human destiny is what human beings make of it.”

As presidential rhetoric goes, this was hardly a match for “Ich bin ein Berliner,” still less another “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” But as a specimen of presidential narcissism, it is hard to beat. Obama couldn’t be troubled to visit Berlin to commemorate a momentous milestone in the history of human liberty. But he was glad to explain to those who were there why reflections on that milestone should inspire appreciation for the self-made “destiny” of his own rise to power.

Was there ever a president as deeply enamored of himself as Barack Obama?

Instead of “Ich bin ein Berliner,” the message to Germans was, “You are all Obama-ers now.”   Because, in the end, the fact that free nations faced down tyrants and despots over that wall and prevailed isn’t really what mattered.  It certainly didn’t matter enough to Obama to join the ceremonies despite the critical role of the nation Obama represents in the fall of that barrier, or even to mention who and what those tyrants were. All that mattered to Obama was how Obama could make it about … Obama.

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at obamaisms@edmorrissey.com with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.

Well, in terms of spine to handle any sort of serious foreign policy challenge, I kind of think Obama is a jelly doughnut. Just make sure you spell the quote the right way.

Seriously, did the filthy lying coward and the the pig-in-a-pantsuit fire all the SECSTATE professionals? This administration’s record of foreign relations is dismal at best with the filthy lying coward embarrassing himself all over the world and Clinton flitting about with no real role in foreign affairs. Who is running these issues, Bo Obama?

You know that this vindictive little man was getting back at the Germans for not letting him speak before the Brandenburg Gate during the campaign. He really thinks we can’t see through his pettiness.

There is a lesson for moderate Dems worried about their reelections. If you want to make sure that Obama is nowhere near your district to campaign for you, insult his vanity. Then he’ll give you the galactic distance you require for reelection.

You could also switch parties….

So,let me see if I’ve got this right,Obama’s Apology American Tour stops in Germany for one of his ‘Articulate

but,

as the Leader of the Free World who is currently AWOL,
he couldn’t make the time to go to Berlin Celebrations
of tearing down the wall,which is also a celebration of
FREEDOM!!

So I guess FREEDOM isn’t to high on a Liberals priority
list,or political platform!!(Sarc).

The White House budget for mirrors has been upgraded significantly, giving Ogabe ample opportunity to catch his reflection, point at himself as if with a gun and say “Lookin’ good…lookin’ goooooood.”

I believe the people who say he’s a “nice guy” are afraid to be called racists. To the contrary, I see it as what’s called the “soft racism of low expectations.”

“Few would have foreseen,” declared the president, “that a united Germany would be led by a woman from [the former East German state of] Brandenburg or that their American ally would be led by a man of African descent. But human destiny is what human beings make of it.”

He also neglected to mention that Chancellor Angela Merkel is a Christian Democrat, from the same center-right party as Helmut Kohl, who was Chancellor when the Berlin Wall was destroyed. Or that the American President at that time was George H.W. Bush, father of the President that Obama blames for his “inherited” problems.

He also didn’t mention that the movement that eventually toppled the Berlin Wall started in Poland, which had been oppressed by both Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, led by two Poles who bravely faced death to make their own destiny and the destiny of Eastern Europe–Lech Walesa and Karol Wojtyla, aka Pope John Paul II, as well as by Czech leader Vaclav Havel. While Obama toots his own horn, he left Poland and the Czech Republic defenseless by pulling out the missile defense system…

Oh, by the way, did Obama also mention that Pope Benedict XVI, aka Josef Ratzinger, was born and raised in Germany, and lived through Nazi oppression AND the Berlin Wall period? German Catholics are probably very proud of him, but EgObama wouldn’t dream of making others feel good about one of their countrymen–it’s all about EgObama, and no one else.

Steve Z on November 19, 2009 at 10:23 AM

On the other hand, given that “Ich bin ein Berliner” in idiomatic German means “I am a doughnut”, it could have been worse. In any event, Obama is more like an entire Black Forest Cake.

In his little video, Obama claims that America is led by a man of African descent. He, Obama, being that leader. Sorry, but Obama is not a leader in any way shape or form. Unless by leadership, he means being so stupid that he can’t understand that every idea he’s come up with is destroying America.

MrFreeman07 on November 19, 2009 at 11:44 AM

There is nothing wrong with having a good dose of self esteem, confidence, and a dash of boldness in ones list of characteristics. However, Mr. Obama would do well to find some humility, humbleness, and a lot less vanity.

Honestly. How in the hell does Michelle put up with it, and how do some have the energy to keep feeding this glutton?

Not just special occasions. The filthy lying coward rejects American exceptionalism as a concept but that sure doesn’t apply when it comes to his own personal exceptionalism.

There are many examples of this I could cite but the one that really sums it up for me is when he was talking about his racist friends arrest and referred to the White House as “his house.” The White House is the people’s house.

How many people have been freed from tyranny under Obama?

On Berlin, at least he did not say “Ich bin ein schwarzer Berliner”, I am a black Berliner (meaning “I’m a black doughnut”).

I’ve met people like Obama before. Never liked any of them.

But he is their apotheosis. So much arrogance and narcissism, based on absolutely nothing of value, must be punished, and it will be.

Each new day brings a new reason to be embarrassed for my country.

This is a book every American should read, twice.

This link goes to amazon.

No, the link doesn’t go to Palin’s book, although everyone should read that too.

A must read – just going viral – hopefully. I believe Beck picked it up.
