"Just Hours Later, Obama Campaign Uses Berlin Speech to Raise Campaign Cash" from Political Punch reports that despite claims that the Barack Obama's speech in Europe wasn't political, it was immediately used for a campaign fundraiser.
Too bad the campaign couldn't make it out to see the troops to talk to them - but had time for gym and fundraising...
In a letter from David Plouffe, the following:
- "As you may have heard, Barack has been in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia this week," reads the email, with a big red "DONATE" sign. "Today, he spoke in Berlin, Germany. In a city where a wall once divided the free from the oppressed, he talked about tearing down the walls that divide all peoples so we can address our common problems -- the threats of terrorism and nuclear weapons, global warming and genocide, AIDS and poverty. Watch Barack's historic speech and share it with your friends."
