    Will Media Report Concert Before Obama's Berlin Speech?
    By Noel Sheppard (Bio | Archive)
    July 24, 2008 - 13:38 ET

    Remember back in May when media gushed and fawned over a huge crowd in Portland, Oregon -- supposedly gathered to hear the words of Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama -- but chose not to report the free concert given before his speech?

    Well, it has been learned that before the presumptive Democrat nominee spoke to a crowd in Berlin Thursday, two popular German acts -- reggae artist Patrice and rock band Reamonn -- entertained the gathering audience.

    Will media report this tonight, or just gush and fawn over the huge crowd again?

    While you ponder, here's what was reported by Spiegel Online moments ago (h/t Hot Air and Gateway):

    ++ Pop Concert for Obama Fans ++

    They look awesome and it was a great speech. It's nice to see we can have a president who can strengthen our ties with our allies in Western Europe. While the speech wasn't necessarily as good as JFK's, Obama really hit a homerun in Berlin yesterday. I hope he visits Berlin again when he's president and delivers another speech since the city and its people will always hold a special sort of talismanic fondness with him, I'm sure.
    The speech was perfect if your a one world order neo-phite. We are NOT SOCIALISTS. Read your Constitution again. Please for the sake of our country, and of the world.

    Two sides. Same coin.
    Actually, I was comparing the complete emotionalism and lack of critical thought in the audiences. Hitler got where he got partially because of the emotional manipulation of the German people. I fear the same with Obama. People aren't thinking; they are reacting emotionally. Even Chris Matthews is talking about "a tingle up my pants" instead of dicussing what Obama intends to do.

    I think you are exactly right on this one. Also, because this country has an inferiority complex when it comes to Europe (and has had since its inception), European approval carries more weight.

    So Berliners weren't thinking and reacting emotionally when JFK and Reagan spoke?

    So JFK and Reagan are like Hitler now?
