On GPS Sunday: Remembering fall of Berlin Wall, is Obama a Republican, and a Syria plan

Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this Sunday: First, Fareed offers his take on the implications of the midterm elections and why he believes President Barack Obama still has time to do big things over the next two years – especially in foreign policy.

Then, it is 25 years ago this Sunday that the Berlin Wall began to fall – an event that too much of the world by surprise. Fareed speaks with then-U.S. National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft and a former top British foreign policy advisor, Charles Powell.

Then, the economy, immigration, politics...How well do you know your world? GPS will share some sobering numbers on just how little many Americans (and others around the world) really know. See how you fair on the quiz here.

And, Fareed speaks with Bruce Bartlett, an economics columnist, author and historian who argued in a recent article in the American Conservative that President Obama is actually a  Republican. He’ll explain why.

Also, the White House appears to have no real solution for the ongoing crisis in Syria. Nor does the Republican Party. But Fareed will talk to a man who says he does – and he has ideas that seem to make a lot of sense.

    LOL. You are so right. Thankfully @ Blue Saffron and Cristobal and Zhang Wei and Chappel H and Rachel and Hannah and many others have taken over this forum and imparted intellectualism to it by posting sensible comments. Thank you all for that.

        You can certainly start with your own behavior, which is decidedly not civil. I have never addressed you, save my 12:48 pm post; yet you have decided to attack the character if a person who hasn't posted a word to you.

        Is that civil?

        Let us look forward.

        Quit posting garbage under numerous names @banasy. If you don't have anything intelligent to say then stay away from these forums.

    The problem I see with our American foreign policy is that there is no vision for the future.
    They are still fixated on Berlin wall and can only look as far ahead as ISIS. I wonder who gave us this mentality.

    Not to be harsh, Bin Laden set the agenda for us way back. Unknowingly our policy makers have been subconsciously following his script. That is plain speak.

    Lol you are so full of sh!t @ JR aka sky high, azzmatazz, blue diamond, gustav and all the rest of your goofy can TRY and deflect your evil behaviour on us all you want. One only has to look at the avatar to recognise your lies! Which i notice you post in the middle of the night when most sane people are sleeping! Why dont you try to get a life for a change? You could find some unsuspecting girl to hook up with on a dating site or something couldnt you? Pick one who hasnt dated in a very long time or better yet never, that way she will be desperate and more likely to overlook your flaws! OR...heres a better a rubber doll then you can pretend to be her and yourself at the same time! You ARE pretty good at THAT so it shouldnt be a failure!

      I have never seen anything positive come out of your posts except for childish bickerings. We are interested in your feedback on FZ 's blog not some jealous rant on a list of names whose comments are very relevant and poignant. Get a life! Did your husband divorce you recently? You seem very bitter.
