For all the media hoopla surrounding the Obama world tour for World Leader, Obama's lead for the Presidential racing is losing ground. Sen McCain is quietly and patiently closing the gap by talking directly to American voters and answering their questions and listening to their concerns. Sen McCain, unlike Sen Obama, has not screened his Townhall Meetings and answers questions from everyone, including people that obviously will not vote for him.
This is not the only reason Sen McCain is closing in on the Kid From Chicago. No matter how much spin the media tries to put on Obama's interviews and speeches the American people are listening to his words and they don't like what they hear.
The Liberal Media that is falling all over each other to show who has the most love for Barack are already praising his Berlin speech as something close to Reagan and JFK speeches in Berlin. I have listened to it over and over, sorry Obama you're no Reagan or JFK. You are just another Jimmy Carter politician.
I am certain after his Grand Tour of Europe designed to introduce them to their next Saviour of the free world
Emails from troops are starting to float around the Internet angry that Obama would not meet with them, talk with them and in some cases looked down on them even when they offered to shake his hand. Others were upset that he only showed up long enough for staged photo ops and was gone before some even knew he was there.
In his Berlin speech in front of the Victory Column the media failed to mention a free concert took place just prior to Sen Obama's speech. According to NewsBusters
The speech was typical Obama,
"I know that I don't look like the Americans who've previously spoken in this great city. The journey that led me here is improbable. My mother was born in the heartland of America, but my father grew up herding goats in Kenya."
Poor Background and Servitude:
"His father - my grandfather - was a cook, a domestic servant to the British."
"At the height of the Cold War, my father decided, like so many others in the forgotten corners of the world, that his yearning - his dream - required the freedom and opportunity promised by the West. And so he wrote letter after letter to universities all across America until somebody, somewhere answered his prayer for a better life."
Below is how Obama reads history relating to the 1948 Berlin Airlift:
"on the twenty-fourth of June, 1948, the Communists chose to blockade the western part of the city. They cut off food and supplies to more than two million Germans in an effort to extinguish the last flame of freedom in Berlin.
The size of our forces was no match for the much larger Soviet Army. And yet retreat would have allowed Communism to march across Europe. Where the last war had ended, another World War could have easily begun. All that stood in the way was Berlin.
And that's when the airlift began - when the largest and most unlikely rescue in history brought food and hope to the people of this city.
The odds were stacked against success. In the winter, a heavy fog filled the sky above, and many planes were forced to turn back without dropping off the needed supplies. The streets where we stand were filled with hungry families who had no comfort from the cold.
But in the darkest hours, the people of Berlin kept the flame of hope burning. The people of Berlin refused to give up. And on one fall day, hundreds of thousands of Berliners came here, to the Tiergarten, and heard the city's mayor implore the world not to give up on freedom. "There is only one possibility," he said. "For us to stand together united until this battle is won...The people of Berlin have spoken. We have done our duty, and we will keep on doing our duty. People of the world: now do your duty...People of the world, look at Berlin!"Obama would have you believe that the United States and Britain were somehow weak and afraid of the Soviet Union and only by the will of the citizens of Berlin did the Soviet Union back down. The facts are different:
On June 27, 1948 after the United States, Britain and France refused the right of the Soviet Union to search western convoys traveling through Soviet controlled Germany, the Soviet Union refused to allow transportation into Berlin. President Truman stood up to the Soviet Union by ordering the airlift and warned them not to interfere with American planes delivering food and supplies to Berlin. The airlift made 270,000 flights without a Soviet challenge. The blockade failed and was lifted May 12, 1949.
His Decision On Iraq:
"And despite past differences, this is the moment when the world should support the millions of Iraqis who seek to rebuild their lives, even as we pass responsibility to the Iraqi government and finally bring this war to a close."
Didn't no it was up to a senator to make foreign policy on ending a war.
"Let us resolve that all nations - including my own - will act with the same seriousness of purpose as has your nation, and reduce the carbon we send into our atmosphere."
Does this mean more Nuclear Plants in th U S like the numbers in Europe?
Peace Through Solidarity:
"We must remember that the Cold War born in this city was not a battle for land or treasure. Sixty years ago, the planes that flew over Berlin did not drop bombs; instead they delivered food, and coal, and candy to grateful children. And in that show of solidarity, those pilots won more than a military victory."
Hm, wasn't it the Soviet Union that first backed North Korea and North Vietnam? Wasn't those wars over land and who would control it? Wasn't there a lot of bombs dropped and people killed?
"Now the world will watch and remember what we do here - what we do with this moment."
Sound Familiar: "The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here." Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address
Leader Of The World:
"People of Berlin - and people of the world - the scale of our challenge is great. The road ahead will be long. But I come before you to say that we are heirs to a struggle for freedom. We are a people of improbable hope. With an eye toward the future, with resolve in our hearts, let us remember this history, and answer our destiny, and remake the world once again."
And you thought he only wanted to be President of the United States.
These are the reasons Sen McCain is gaining on Obama. The more Barack speaks the more people turn against him. By promoting a larger war in Afghanistan, and maybe Pakistan after he sends in more troops and crosses the Pakistani border, Barack has started to lose his support on the left. He has left so many people behind, including his wife, he now has few to stand by his side.
Senator McCain has been right about Iraq.
Senator McCain is right about Afghanistan.
Senator McCain is right about Iran.
Senator McCain is right about Domestic Drilling, our economy and energy.
Senator McCain is right for America.
Senator Obama is just wrong and people, including Democrats, are beginning to see it.
