White House Blows the Berlin Speech

Updated 3:13 pm ET

President Obama’s speech at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin today was a stage director’s nightmare. The president was sweating profusely – you could see the outlines of his undershirt. There were ghostly reflections off the protective glass in front of him. And instead of heaving throngs of admirers, Obama addressed 6,000 or so invited guests.

And something was wrong with TOTUS!

Obama was peering down at his script instead of using his trusty teleprompter.¬†We’re not accustomed anymore to seeing our leaders glance toward the lectern to read, so the president came off looking as if he couldn’t remember his lines and kept having the check.

Have a look at this disaster.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews thinks the sun messed with Obama’s view of the teleprompter.

Have a look at how this all compares to Obama’s Berlin speech as a candidate in 2008.

Europe back then thought Obama was who he said he was – a new kind of politician who would make omelettes for everyone without breaking any organic eggs.

Obama found out after being elected that part of his job was to do what’s necessary to protect the United States. Europe, which long ago stopped taking its own preservation seriously, doesn’t like this and is crestfallen that Obama isn’t as “enlightened” as they thought. And so we got invited guests instead of reveling masses.

But at least the White House could have made him seem less like a sweaty dude reading his book report to the class. Very surprising.

UPDATE: A senior administration official said the teleprompter was not working.
