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.

    We need water, said the King of Saudi Arabia. And so hired American drillers to go drill him some water wells. Well, we struck oil instead. The first crack in The Wall of Berlin.

    Stupid i diots just polluting this forum. Nothing intelligent to say. Just i diotic ramblings like Fareed writing his blogs. These Indians are a disgrace to our great country. Mexicans are geniuses compared to these hindoos. At least they believe in Jesus not some ugly duckling terrorist deities.

    No, President Obama is not at all a Republican.
    An expert politician who achieves support by saying, "you didn't build that," does not advocate personal responsibility in the manner of a Republican.
    In another definition of the word, the President probably does support individual states' rights sufficiently to be called a Republican.
    Obama has done some wonderful things for us. I am sorry that the recent election did not reflect appreciation for the President's achievements.

    The Jobless Indian troll with multiple names like a cokroach as you can see by the disjointed and nonsense comments IT is making. All this while typing with one hand and scratching his bollz by the other. Then he picks his nose, eats his boogers and scratches ITS a ss. This ritual culminates with licking the fingers after eating curry with unwashed hands and then back to making comments. Hare Krishna Hare Ram
