Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Setting aside the debate over whether Obama should speak at the gate or not, Krauthammer is an asshole.  His column is a beautiful illustration of the Villge mentality.  "We decide who gets to do what and where."  I'm curious to know what, exactly, Reagan did to "earn" giving a speech at the gate.  Reagan wouldn't be fit to shine Obama's shoes if he were alive today, let alone Kennedy's.

The Siegessäule is as good a place as any, I suppose, but why not just give a speech at any non-critical intersection, addressing ordinary Germans instead of some big show at the Siegessäule?  That would be a lot more visually appealing to me.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
