OBAMA WILL SPEAK AT THE VICTORY COLUMN IN BERLIN GERMANY , ONCE AGAIN SHOWING ALL OF EUROPE THAT THERE IS HOPE AND ANOTHER FACE FOR AMERICA


400,000-500,000 Showed up to Hear Obama's Speech today, It will be posted below as soon as it is available,crowd estimate by German TV and Officials.Hundreds of Thousands were expected to show up in this square at the Victory Column in Berlin to listen to Obama, and they did in enthusiastic numbers. We hope that they understand that those of us that voted and worked on Obama's Campaign are trying to bring Change to America. That we do indeed appreciate What Bush has done to this Country and to the World. That when we voted for Obama we were voting to end the Era of Fear Mongering, WarMongering, and Pain and Injustice that the Bush Regime has inflicted on so many.

"The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger - but recognize the opportunity." John F. Kennedy, Speech in Indianapolis, April 12, 1959

"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped.Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
RFK

ABOUT THE SCHEDULE OF THE SPEECH AND HOW TO SEE:::
A NOTE TO THE MEDIA:: WE THE PEOPLE WANT TO SEE OBAMA REPRESENT US AROUND THE WORLD....IT WARMS OUR HEARTS AND SOULS....WE NEED THAT....WE DON'T NEED TO HEAR MORE OF YOUR PROPAGANDA AND PANDERING AND CODDLING OF MCGRAMPS. ( please send Mrs Greenspan, Andrea Mitchell on vacation....we are sick of her Negative Piss Poor Journalism, Tom Russert would have covered this week with Enthusiasm).

[[It will be Early Evening in Berlin and midafternoon here when he speaks. I will post it when I have it, I think the Obama Website will stream Live. Many TV stations in Europe are planning to stream Live.Start watching for coverage around Noon, he is scheduled to arrive at the TierGarten to speak at around 1:15PM EST]]

CNN and Huffpost will LIVESTREAM on their Sites at 1PM. ( Neither CNN or MSNBC has on posted schedule- but they should be streaming).

( also some others to try, German /European Sites that are live streaming starting at 1PM and covering beforehand- if anyone wants to try to link/ stream in Comments that is fine too).

And what is McGramps doing today you may ask?

He is holding a Presser on an Oil Rig /Tanker off the NOLA coastline and he has three negative attack Campaign ads airing on the radio in three other Berlins in the States ( Pa. and two other states).....

an average patriot said...

I was listening earlier to German concerns and how they are going to grill him on NAFTA which is important to them and Obama wants to revise along with other issues. Obama has played well around the world much to the consternation of Bush and McCain. It will be interesting to see how it goes!
I keep trying to hear more on it but all they are talking about is possible Tornadoes here in New England.

Patriot:
The Speech is supposed to be about Transatlantic relations...and the aerial footage so far , it seems that the Berlin Square is filling.....and we really need the World to see this man that we all worked to help move forward...that as Americans we are NOT embracing McGramps...after Bush we should be glad that they are giving us a 2nd chance...

I just heard that New England is horrible weather- and a Tornado Warnings issued for New Hampshire...so be careful out there....

( On another note supposedly Foriegn Aid Workers from the US there in Germany were banned from attending....which is pretty damn fascist...now the joke is- HOW would the State Dept KNOW? and I bet alot of employees will be in that massive crowd...there is no reason as Americans they should not be allowed to go listen to a Senator....esp, if the Speech is about TransAtlantic relations....read more at Huffpost...)

Somewhere I read that politicians avoid the Victory Column as a speaking venue because it takes 100K people to fill up the strasse & look impressive. As of last night, Berlin papers thought they could see an influx of 1 MILLION people today. OK, they won't all be at the speech, but can you imagine? Europeans are flying & driving in from all over. This is an event!

And you mentioned Foreign Aid workers workers denied attendance. What about all the US soldiers at Ramsein? Are they being forced to stay on base & listen to Rush on the radio?

DK::::
I don't know about the soldiers and workers at the Hospital- I thought of them too...I also have noted that the MSM here has barely mentioned it and it is not on their schedules for today...I did pull some other LIVE feed sites from Europe and posted in case we need a way to hear the WHOLE thing.

D.K. Raed said...

I couldn't get your http foreign feeds to feed! But I'm recording cable news now & they are periodically interrupting with crowd shots. They say they will show when Obama starts speaking. In the meantime, McCain is talking about announcing Thune as his running mate, trying to hog a little airtime.

1:24PM EST
MSNBC has it LIVE and the crowds are HUGE over 100,000.....his voice is echoing...talking about his family and who he is- good for him- good place to start...Crowds are warm and enthusiastic.....( CNN has it streamed now....even FOX has broken away from some kind of drivel to air it...)

He is now talking about OUR History with Germany....Excellent- NEW speech...( good to review History...maybe Bush should watch this- he might learn something).....

enigma4ever said...

CSPAN 3 has it LIVE and is also now livestreaming.

Speech:::
How That Wall divided people...and divided Fear and Hope...and what it meant when it came down...Think about it...

hmmmm, 911 history is reviewed...and now he is talking about now about economy, the threads of where terra starts and now he brings up Darfur...we can not be divided...( oh, the UNITY messege has now reached the WORLD stage...ahhhhh)

He is now talking about how we have drifted apart....as peoples and countries...

( I am going to Live Blog this...sorry..have to...it is History...)

an average patriot said...

Obama is friggen phenomenal, gotta get back to listening!

enigma4ever said...

He is reaching his stride talking about WALLS between peoples ALL peoples

( this is a brave speech there- where Immigrants and refugees are viewed as less than.... This is not just a campaign speech...this is about us as global citizens and neighbors- a very very big deal....)

The echo is slowing the speech a little...( it was even worse live streamed so I switched the TV).....
He brought up the terra issue- dead silence....interesting.....He brought up how Majority of Muslims do not support the Extremism...( applause)

Oh dear...now he has brought up how Afgansistan needs our help and troops...( polite applause)

NOW the NO Nuke weapon part of the speech( applause) "Now is the Moment to seek a Peace without Nuclear Weapons"....( Strong applause)

enigma4ever said...

" This is the Moment that we Must Reject the Cold War Mindset"

Now about growth and economy and trade...and protecting peoples and planet....

New Dawn about Middle East and Iran ( oh this is sooooo tricky...) and about supporting Iraqis and BIRING THIS WAR TO A CLOSE

( Oh lordy McGramps just crapped in his pants somewhere)

NOW he is talking EV issues- Huge support...

This the Moment to give Our Children back to their Future...

enigma4ever said...

Interesting he just spoke about rejecting Torture and all that is connected to it ....( Crowd cheered).

Now he is talking about HOW America has made mistakes...many...

"But I still Love America....all the cultures and languages etc...these are what join us as a people....etc etc...Aspirations connect us , FREE people everywhere...it is the pursuit of these aspirations that
unite us....Let us Answer Our Destinies"

( and now cue Andrea to start spewing sour grapes and petty bitchiness...I do miss Lee Cowan)...

Excellent Speech...so glad we got to hear the whole thing....

enigma4ever said...

Richard Wolfe is now pointing out that Bush got huge HUGE Protest Crowds ...this is very different..

"People don't wave american flags anymore- you never see it" Richard Wolf

...now that is sad isn't it?

Nice to see the Huge Crowds embrace him and the messege...

2PM:::
On the McCain Front, he is in Ohio today eating WURST at a German resturant....and meeting with small business owner...no photos yet...wow..exciting...

( turns out that the NOLA tanker tour was cancelled..)

an average patriot said...

Satellite is out here from the storm but that was a great speech! They were just going to cover McCain and I could care less but wonder how he is going to put a negative spin on a great speech?

enigma4ever said...

2:14PM

Omg...LIVE McCain is standing in front of a German Resturante, Ohio- Schmidts and is standing picking his teeth with Lindsay at his side...and talking about how that not all of us have time to give political speechs on other shores ( didn't he speak when he was in South America and wasn't it well covered???)

Now he is whining that he did not get to go to the Oil Rig, and that he wanted to do that because Obama is wrong about offhsore drilling...

Now he is picking on Obama, saying that Obama is not rational or understanding of the surge ( that is rich...)
and now he is again saying that Moveon is dictating Obama 's position..( meanwhile there is Some DAMN Bell that is clanging every time McGramps trys to speak...)

I have visited with Sarkosy and I know Gordon Brown and alot of these new leaders are very pro American, I know them we have a common cause with Iran ( He has said this now 8 times how well he knows them)....

Now McCain is saying he is going to meet with the Dali in Aspen ( oh dear I did not know this...I hope he is not taking him to a sausage house)...that must be Tibetan Prayer bells in the background....CNN aired the little speech/sausage photo op ...not FOX or MSNBC....

oh the excitement...

enigma4ever said...

Hey Patriot-
yes, I just wrote a little synopisis of McGramps Snitfit of a speech for you...

D.K. Raed said...

After Obama's speech, he was cornered by Brian Williams for an interview. Watch NBC Nightly News tonight. It looked like they were standing on the other side of the angel column.

I was struck by the faces of the people in the crowd, especially afterwards. It's a real shock to see us greeted so enthusiastically & it shows how badly we have been shut out during the Bush Admn & how used we had gotten to canned audience responses. Those people, all ages, all races, were so happy, so hopeful, so alive & connected with the moment -- not the dead-eyed clapping McC zombies.

We just watched history. I am still catching my breath.

enigma4ever said...

3:23PM....
It was amazing...REAL people...excited...happy...HOPEFUL....all together for that moment.....NO Police bullying people around to protest pits or fenced areas either....People that look like us ,you and me....families and old and young all different colors and religions....And the State Dept told their employees they could not attend- what a Crock..I bet there was massive Obamititis- with people calling in sick so they could go watch...

It was an excellent speech...Nothing like the Bush Terramongering speech...did you hear them cheer when he spoke about Ending the Iraq War ?

400-500,000 there according to German and European TV...NOT the 100,000 that CNN and MSNBC reported..sorry - they are wrong....

HALF Million showed up for OUR Candidate and after the way Bush has acted and ruined our world image....that is amazing...I had chills...

an average patriot said...

I just can't stomach the scum McCain. The more the world gets behind Obama the angrier and more ignorant McCain and Bush get. I understand Bush is going to speak at the GOP convention. It sickens me!
I heard there were 200,000 at Obama's speech. That is a hell of a crowd. They were saying the crowds were cordial but not loud. I have to laugh! This is Germany! I remember going to concerts and you could tell who the Americans were. We were the ones jumping around screaming and acting wild. That's us!
The Germans sat in circles politely listening smoking cigarettes. That is them!

an average patriot said...

You know, I am sick of hearing the failed surge hailed as a success. It is not a success and my son said things are picking up! I think it was jolly roger that posted that 540 Iraqi's were killed in June and that equaled at its worst!
That should be the measure along with the fact they still can not supply basic human needs to their citizens and there are 2 million less because they are permanent nomads thanks to Bush's success!

enigma4ever said...

German TV showed the crowds and interviewed people before the event- and they compared Obama to Lincoln and Kennedy, I did not hear Reagon mentioned....They were enthusiastic and warm...considering how Bush has acted and what his regime has done that they would be so open and accepting is a miracle....

They were VERY enthusiastic when he came out on the stage...VERY....
