As always, Professor Althouse is elequent:

I guess we’re not supposed to think about how Obama wanted and still wants to give up on the Iraq war. Surely, if he’d been there in 1948, he would have said the Berlin airlift is hopeless. He thought the surge was hopeless.

As alway, Ace is not:

Are you somehow implying that Captain Bullshit says one thing and does another?

With respect to this, Jake Tapper:

Shortly after 6 pm Central time — just a few hours after Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, gave his speech in Berlin, which his campaign insisted was not political — his campaign manager, David Plouffe, sent out a fundraising solicitation using the speech to raise campaign cash.

BO credits the Berliners for keeping hope during the dark days of the Berlin Air Lift.  Personally, I’d credit the United States Air Force.

  1. A couple of other fact checking, paragraph by paragraph and on global warming.

  2. It is hard to digest the massive amount of bullshit BO dumped into one speech.  Ace’s moniker of Captain Bullshit seems apt.  I think the analogy of der speech might be the Hindenburg.  The crew and passengers of the Hinderburg cut the surely bonds of Earth in Lakehurst, New Jersey.  Captain Bullshit cut the remaining bonds with reality in Berlin.
