It's not President Obama's fault. Speaker Pelosi continues to suffer from Bush Derangement Syndrome and she refuses to allow President Obama to be Presidential. She may have refused to sign his permission slip to travel to honor America in Berlin.

She is firm in her conviction that President Obama was elected to degrade and devalue America when he is on the World Stage. The Berlin celebration HONORS America and must be shunned.

Obama doesn't do what's right. He does what's convenient for him. Can't respect a man like that.
