Barack Obama’s Speech in Berlin

In case you missed it, follow this link to the video of Barack Obama’s speech in Berlin.

I heard it on MSNBC, not from the Obama campaign’s attempt to stream it over the internet. On my computer this attempt pooped out just as the speech was about to begin.

I didn’t hear the spin of the MSNBC talking heads after the speech, so I can only go by what I heard from listening to the speech itself.

It was an OK speech.  The speech appeared to be well received by the large audience. However, it rarely roused the crowd to any level of excitement. He didn’t make any gaffes that I detected.  At least he didn’t speak in German and claim to be a pastry.
