German Chancellor Merkel to Address Congress

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

Today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel will address a joint session of Congress and meet with President Obama. It’s her first U.S. visit since her re-election for a second term as German leader. The speech ties in with upcoming festivities in Germany to mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

But it will also focus on Germany’s contribution to the Afghan conflict – a highly controversial war back in Germany. To bring us the latest poll numbers and the feeling on the ground in Germany, we speak with Irwin "Bud" Collier, professor at the Free University in Berlin.

Congratulations on your victory at the FiFA World Cup.
Not all men have achieved what you have achieved even in
their own world and Game. Congratulations.

I think that Beathhoven and Mozart took the Bagpipes,
Violins, Flute, Piccolo, Timpanis and Oboes to far away
Latin America (Brazil to be precise) and played it better
as an Orchestra than the Samba Giutar songs and Salsa
dances. It was d Waltz, Schuhplattler, Lumberjack, Polka
and Ambosspolka that won in the end. Congratulations.

Eugene from Ghana.
