“Not a campaign event”; another flip-flop

posted at 9:15 am on July 23, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

Yeah, right:

Patrick Ruffini:

This is pretty extraordinary. A candidate for the American Presidency is using flyers printed in German to turn people out for his campaign rally in Berlin on Thursday. This flyer can be found on a bilingual page on BarackObama.com advertising the event … The German flyers bear Obama’s campaign logo and say “Paid for by Obama for America.” …

So, this isn’t just some sober, high-minded foreign policy speech, part of a foreign trip occurring under the auspices of his official Senate office. It is a campaign rally occuring on foreign soil. They are using the same tactics to turn out Germans to an event as they would to any rally right here in America.

I’m sure everyone recalls the assurances that the Obama campaign gave that Barack Obama would not conduct political rallies on this trip.  In fact, they got a little confused over Obama’s current job title in making those assurances:

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.

“He is going to talk about the issues as an individual … not as a candidate, but as an individual, as a senator,” the adviser added.

Do “individuals” have full-color fliers distributed, complete with media credentialing for the event?  Do Senators have these efforts funded by presidential campaign committees?    Of course not.  The Obama campaign wants to hold a political rally in Berlin, apparently to impress upon American voters how popular Obama is among Europeans.

Ruffini calls this “breathtakingly arrogant”.  Glenn Reynolds says Obama seems to be running for President of the World.   At the very least, the level of truth coming from the Obama campaign on this trip has been breathtakingly low, and their political ear amazingly tone-deaf.  If they think a massive campaign rally in Berlin will convince anyone but the most ardent Leftists in America to vote for Obama, they really need a shake-up in their campaign staff.

I think he’s supposed to speak around 8 – just guessing this because another article mentioned that there would be no purses (?) or backpacks allowed, and there was speculation about how the crowd was going to fare w/o food and water for 4 hours.

Sounds like fun, huh?

Gilda on July 23, 2008 at 1:14 PM

Looking at GoogleEarth the column is just 300 ft from the tree line (with five road spokes around the circle). That means the crowd will have to be packed tightly (and make good visuals).

Chakra Hammer on July 23, 2008 at 1:24 PM

in 1939, the Nazis relocated the column to its present site at the Großer Stern (Great Star), a large intersection on the city axis that leads from the former Berliner Stadtschloss (Berlin City Palace) through the Brandenburg Gate to the western parts of the city. At the same time, the column was augmented by another 7.5 meters, giving it its present height of 70 meters.

I’m thinking that this has the boomerang potential of another Paul Wellstone memorial service.

The hard-core lefties here in the states will no doubt be creaming their pants at the rock-star spectacle of Senator Hopenchange, standing before a symbol of German militarism and conquest, holding throngs of America-hating Germans in a trance.

But many more Americans, I suspect, are going to be repulsed — just like they were by the donkeys’ over-the-top behavior at the Wellstone memorial. That stunt cost Mondale the Minnesota senate race; Hopenchange’s stunt in Berlin may prove to be just as costly.

Will there be any retraction by anyone in the echo chamber from then now that they are in running dog lacky-like frenzy mode to make Obama’s current trip abroad seem uber relevant?

It would be interesting to survey students in Democrat-run and lauded public schools, to see how many of them can find Germany on a map.

Or better yet, how many know what a “map” is.

And then contrast that with how many know how to put on a condom.

I am sure we would get some interesting responses from such a survey.

“If they think a massive campaign rally in Berlin will convince anyone but the most ardent Leftists in America to vote for Obama, they really need a shake-up in their campaign staff.” Indeed. Maybe a point 9 earthquake would do it…
However, it seems to me that the twits running his campaign ARE the most ardent leftists in America. The bring entitlement to a global level while it ignores history. Ignorant is as ignorant does.
That poster just takes my breath away; chutzpah doesn’t come close to defining the impropriety of this move.

TheBigOldDog on July 23, 2008 at 2:54 PM

They are both working towards the same end – the election of Obama – so they are functionally indistinguishable.

The Obama trolls are slightly more likely to work solo and the Ron Paul trolls often work in groups. Both nearly always resort to personal insults as a substitute for substantive argument.

You can always tell who the Ron Paul trolls are because the mere mention of Ron Paul results in the kind of thing demonstrated here. The hit dog always hollers.

Indistinguishable. That’s why I initially offered a choice between the Ron Paul Day Camp and the Obamabot Kindergarten. Don’t know for sure which kind of troll they are but you are very correct, BigOldDog: it really does not matter.

Gilda on July 23, 2008 at 3:05 PM

Listen buttcrumb. You are the only person to mention Ron Paul this fiscal quarter.

Here’s a lesson in multitasking. Detest the lackluster campaign of McCain, without supporting the leftist ascent of Barack Obama. Try it. It works.

Is MM a Paultard? She’s not sucking up the McCain Kool-Aid either.

Just love to kick McCain, but when it comes to Obama? Crickets from the Paulbots.

Sort of like how you never hear Democrats say anything at all bad about the terrorists or our enemies, while they always find the time to knee our troops and our allies in the groin.

Strange how that is. But we would never question where either of your sympathies really lie.

The German media certainly expect this to be a campaign event with two cameras capturing both the Victory Column and the Brandenburg Gate. There has been considerable controversy about the propriety of a foreign politician abusing our national symbols in this manner. At first, the Obama campaign wanted to hold the event directly in front of the Brandenburg Gate (a symbol of German unity). Chancellor Merkel, among others, objected vehemently and the Victory Column was chosen as a new location. This was criticized as an even worse choice, since wars of unification are not even harmonious with America’s own traditional propaganda themes.

btw, I appreciate the anti-German sentiment expressed in the comments on this blog item. It reminded me why I am a nationalist.

2. The arrogance and grandiosity are so breathtaking that Joe and Mary, who’re just now beginning to pay attention, can’t miss it.

3. The foreigners who’re wetting their pants/panties over Obama don’t get to vote, to their chagrin.

4. The media will cry the loudest and buy the most Vi***a, after Nov. 04, 2008.

5. The nationalists outside the U.S. are encouraged, which might not be a bad thing, for once.

Also, I’m pretty sure you’re a genius. Your reanimation of the almost-dead Ron Paul sarc meme inspired me thusly:

I was out girlwatching shopping for a gift for the wife and every time I would see a gal with a big butt, I’d mutter Ron Paul’s blimp.

Try it. It is very difficult not to cramp up in laughter. I said it once as a big ole girl in white stretch pants sauntered by. She was pretty, but I was laughing so hard at my mumbling that she looked afraid.

Next time your lady friend asks if those jeans make her look fat…Ron Pauls blimp.

my stomach hurts from laughing

That is the German’s SOCIALIST Victory Column. It was built to celebrate the victory of Germany during the socialist political world wide movement; and it was magnified by the NAZI socialists in their pursuit of world domination. So do take note of Obamarx’s public positioning at the German Socialist’s Victory Column. The Germans as individuals, business interests, and as governing interests, are placing their bid to buy the USA. The EU are buying their share of Obamarx. German tax money and German media broadcasts and publication expenditures provide this Marxist POTUS hOpeful political contributions.

So what are the legal stipulations on international contributions spent for a POTUS candidate?! Who is keeping track of Obama’s international contributions?!

Obama’s presidential campaign logo is on the billboard.
It is a POTUS CAMPAIGN PLUG paid for by German tax moneys.

Is Obama going to say that by removing the US FLAG from his jet and replacing it with his offical campaign logo that he is not on a campaign tour? We are to understand that the US FLAG is not part of Obama’s POTUS campaign platform, it having been removed from sight, replaced AGAIN by the UN-blue stripes coloring his POTUS campaign logo and his presidential hOpeful seal.

DO nOt ignOre the ObviOus signals from bhO. When malleability is the Only cOnsistent feature frOm Obama, hOld tight tO any firm grip On this changling.

And you can thank the Unites States of America for having the freedom to do so.

I have no such freedom and I certainly won’t thank a country that takes great pride in its pathetic contribution to the conquest of most parts of Germany by Communist forces. The US dominated so-called West Germany for 45 years and defended it like any of its possessions.

If it was a book it’d be called Profiles in Vulgarity.

Ich bin ein noch groesserer Berliner!

I’d suggest “Ich bin der größte Berliner” (I’m the biggest jelly donut), or

“Ich bin euer schwarzer Berliner” (I’m your black jelly donut).

Gilda, I’ve been in The Race Card’s crosshairs – he’s very smart and sometimes very smart-alleckey. I like both of you and it’s hard to watch some spats on HA. Good on you Gilda for fighting.

The Race Card, you fight hard, sometimes way too hard. It would be great if we could chat sometimes. I’d really like that. Great note you wrote the the Good Daddy on another thread. He wrote you back a very moving comment. I hope that you could see it. I like those exchanges most.
