| RELATED STORY|
Glenn: All right. Gang, yesterday I had a guy say, Glenn, all my friends are saying why do you keep saying he's like the Messiah, that he is starting to be, you know, some sort of a Fascist leader, that that's what he's setting himself up for you. I'm going to give you a couple of things that this is the meat of the Obama speech that nobody in the media cares to focus on. They're immediately moving now to Paris and then to London. Won't it be great? Here we go. We just heard in his speech partnership and cooperation among nations is not a choice; it is the only way, the one way. Okay? Cooperation and partnership among nations is not a choice. Okay. Cut 13, please. Listen carefully.
Obama: True partnership and true progress requires constant work and sustained sacrifice. They require sharing the burdens of development and diplomacy, of peace and progress. They require allies who will listen to each other, learn from each other, and most of all, trust each other.
Glenn: Okay. True partnership requires true progress with constant work and sustained sacrifice. Cut 14.
Obama: That is why America cannot turn inward. That is why Europe cannot turn inward. America has no better partner than Europe. Now (Crowd cheering.) Now is the time to build new bridges across the globe as the one that binds us across the Atlantic.
Glenn: Stop just a second. Stop there. Stop there. Now is the time to build new bridges across the globe as strong as the one that bound us or binds us across the Atlantic. Where do these new bridges go? Where do they go? He's talking about building new bridges. He's recognizing that we already have a bridge that is strong, that binds us together, America and Europe. Where do the new bridges go? One that would require us to listen to each other, learn from each other, and trust each other? Do they go to the Middle East? Do they go to Iran? Do they go to Russia? Do they go to China? Where are these bridges? Why is no one asking this question? Pick it up there, please.
Obama: Now is the time to join together through constant cooperation and strong institutions and shared sacrifice and a global commitment to progress to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Glenn: Okay. Stop. Stop. Stop. Stop. Now is the time to join together through constant cooperation, through strong institutions, and shared sacrifice and a global commitment to progress to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Remember, one line, one line is about Islamic extremism, followed immediately by those driving cars in Boston, melting the polar ice caps. Join together through constant cooperation, strong institutions, and shared sacrifice and a global commitment to progress. What are those global institutions, those strong institutions? What does it mean, shared sacrifice? Cut 15, please.
Obama: This is the moment when we must renew the goal of a world without nuclear weapons. (Crowd cheering.) The two super powers that faced each other across the wall of this city came too close too often to destroying all we have built and all that we love.
Glenn: Stop. The two super powers that faced each other across this wall came too close to often to destroying all that we have built and all that we have loved. The two super powers. By the way, it was in the end the super power and the leader that was strong enough to stand up and say, Mr. Gorbachev, tear down these walls. It was one leader that stood up in the face of adversity. Remember, the last time Ronald Reagan gave a speech in Berlin, he had to have 10,000 riot police because what he was saying was we will not back down from freedom. We will not coexist with evil. Some want to enslave and some want to free. We are on the side of freedom and we will not share the sacrifice with everyone. We are willing to sacrifice ourselves in defense of liberty and freedom. It was a man who was the most unpopular on the planet because he had the balls to stand up and say, you know what? They're building nuclear weapons. We're going to build a weapon that will shoot those weapons out of the sky and everyone said he's escalating. He's going to get us all killed, as Barack Obama says the two super powers that faced each other across the wall of the city, came too close too often to destroying all that we built and all that we love. One of those super powers saved everything that you love. Cut 16.
Obama: This is the moment when we must build on the wealth that opened markets have created and
Glenn: Stop, stop. This is not the script. He bungled this line. It's important that you understand the script. The script is this is the moment when we must build on the wealth that open marks have created, not the wealth that opened markets, but we must build on the wealth that open markets have created. Start it again, please.
Obama: This is the moment when we must build on wealth that opens markets have created and share its benefits more equitably.
Glenn: Stop. We just build on the wealth that open markets have created and share its benefits more equitably. You don't need ‑‑ if I'm sitting next to a very creative person, that's like me, I've always wanted to ‑‑ I've always wanted to be able to write music. I can't write music. I can meet with composers and I can say, you know, I want it to feel like this, I want it to do this, but I cannot write music. Should John Williams share his creativity with me? Should he ‑‑ he's got a wealth of strong writing ability. Should I force him to share that song writing ability more equitably? That's his gift. He chooses to use it. I have met people with gifts of music, with gifts of business, with gifts of comedic talent, acting talent, business talent that don't use it. It's their loss. Shared prosperity, sharing the benefits more equitably. It goes against everything that America stood for. What we share is an idea and we want that idea to spread and, that is, man is free, man is free to create, man is free to do as he sees fit. That is the only thing that we should be sharing more equitably. We should be sharing it to every corner of the globe. We should be sharing it with everyone who will listen and if you don't listen, that's fine. You don't want freedom, that's fine. If your people want freedom, we stand with your people. If your people decide they don't want freedom, they're happy living under totalitarianism state, they're happy handing their power back over to a totalitarian guilt of the like they do in Russia, that's fine, but not here and we'll continue to share that wealth of that idea that you can be successful, you can be happy, you can be rich, you can be poor, you can have all of the benefits because there is no end to wealth, there is no end to happiness. It is an infinite idea. It's a never ending idea. It is as vast as the oceans and far beyond. Why should I share the oceans more equitably? There's enough water in there for all of us. Stop diminishing the size. Stop telling me that the ocean is a pond. It's not. Get into the water. It's fine. You might need directions to the beach, but I ain't putting a fence around that beach just for you. I'm not telling people who have been on that beach and use that beach and get into that water and swim and boat and water‑ski and turn it into energy, I'm not telling those people, no, no, no you can't because someday these people may need that water brought to them because they can't go to the beach, they don't believe in the beach, they just want all the benefits of the beach. The only thing we share is an idea and a love of freedom.
