Obama Draws Criticism for Sitting Out Berlin Wall Anniversary...

President Obama squeezed in a trip to Copenhagen last month to lobby, unsuccessfully, for Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Olympics. He plans to travel to Oslo next month to accept the Nobel Peace Prize, an award that even Obama has said he does not deserve. And this coming week, he sets out on a weeklong tour of Asia.

But the president does not plan to travel to Germany to attend the 20th anniversary celebration Monday of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Do you think this is up there with an event he should have tried to make? AND has he visited Ft. Hood yet?

  • He did find time to go there when he was campaigning to be leader of the world. Oops, I meant free world. I would rather he doesn't, since it would tarnish the bright shine from the Reagan years. . It would be a conflict of interest for him to be there anyway, he has nothing to do with freedom or liberty

  • Fri Nov 6, 6:31 pm ET WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama spent nearly two hours visiting wounded U.S. soldiers Friday afternoon.


     The president met with 19 soldiers being treated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, as well as the families of three soldiers in intensive care, and hospital staff. He also awarded two Purple Hearts.

  • The president's visit came a day after an Army psychiatrist who once trained at Walter Reed hospital allegedly killed 13 people at Fort Hood. The White House says the hospital visit was planned before the shootings.

    Friday's visit was Obama's first to Walter Reed since taking office, though he visited as a presidential candidate.


    Had he went to the Berlin Wall you ladies would have been screaming he has SO MUCH to do at home WHY is he there

  • He actually went to Walt Reid? The one in Washington, D. C.?! Wow, that is a monumental effort for him to go down the street to meet with the wounded. How about going to the base and meet with the families in mourning?

  • LOL, yes and get used to it. We had to hear the "clucking" from your side for 8 long years. You wanted to turn the tables. Don't get tired of the game before we even get started.

    I don't know what you are referring to as I wasn't in here for 8 years. and if you are referring to the last admin, I didn't criticize the former potus everytime he sneezed, only when he started wars and pulled resources to start another one
