German Chancellor Angela Merkel slammed a request by Barack Obama to give a speech this month before the Brandenburg Gate as "inappropriate", her deputy spokesman said Wednesday.

The conservative leader said that while she would be pleased to meet the US Democratic presidential hopeful, it would be wrong for him to hold a "campaign rally" at the historic symbol of German unity.

"It is unusual to do electioneering abroad," spokesman Thomas Steg told reporters.

"It is unusual to hold election rallies abroad. No German candidate for high office would even think of using the National Mall (in Washington) or Red Square in Moscow for a rally because it would not be seen as appropriate."

He has high ambitions. There's no previous stand or principle that he won't kick to the curb to get elected.

Well, considering a lot of his money seems to be coming from overseas, then, perhaps...

This is digusting, it'd practically be an endorsement by the German government of Obama, that foriegn minister only supports it because he knows Obama is popular in Germany and wants the votes for when he runs for Chancellor.

That douche.
