Lynn Sweet, Sun-Times (Chicago) reports the BO campaign is  trying some imaginative rebranding and is attempt to foist BO off as a reincaranted version of both John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan:

WASHINGTON–A German friend passed along the news Saturday that local sources in Berlin are confirming that the Obama campaign was in contact with city authorities to discuss the possibility of presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) delivering an outdoor address in front of the Brandenburg gate. The thinking is Obama would follow in the footsteps of two very famous Cold War-era speeches of U.S. presidents speaking in Germany: JFK “Ich bin ein Berliner” and Reagan “tear down this wall.” It would probably be Obama’s only public speech during upcoming visits to Germany, France and England on a swing to include stops in Israel and Jordan. There is still no date for the trip. German news sources are reporting the Obama team is working on a visit during the “second half of this month”.

Cut me a farking break.  Kennedy understood that words could be used to motivate people, “Ask not what you country can do for you, but rather what you can do for your country.”   It has never crossed BO’s mind to inspire anybody to do more for his country, save paying yet more in taxes.

As for the Gipper, Reagan understood both the sound and the meaning of his words.  Reagan knew what his words meant.  All BO is capable of grasping is that he words sound pretty when he says them.   Believe me BO, we knew Reagan and you are no Gipper.
