Obama Camp Draws Fire For Berlin Campaign Rally
More Hope, Change and Arrogance…
Obama will campaign at the Victory Column in Berlin, Germany, the symbol of German superiority over Denmark, Austria and France.
The choice of the Victory Column was made after Chancellor Angela Merkel made it known to Obama’s team that she did not approve of him campaigning at the Brandenburg Gate.
Today the Obama campaign talked about their campaign plans for Berlin.
The Politico reported:
At a morning background briefing, reporters parried with senior advisers on the characterization of Obama’s speech Thursday in Berlin as a campaign rally. The outdoor speech at the Victory Column could draw thousands of people, similar to the size of Obama events in the United States.
“It is not going to be a political speech,” said a senior foreign policy adviser, who spoke to reporters on background. “When the president of the United States goes and gives a speech, it is not a political speech or a political rally.”
“But he is not president of the United States,” a reporter reminded the adviser.
