Chris Matthews: Obama Struggled with Berlin Speech Because Sun 'Ruined His Use Of Teleprompters' CHRIS MATTHEWS: "I think a lot of the problem he had today was the late afternoon sun in Berlin. I think it ruined his use of the teleprompters and his usual dramatic windup was ruined. I think he was really struggling with the text there. I think the headline will be balance on surveillance and privacy. I think no matter what he said about reduction, of course, the wire stories will have to go with the nuclear reduction proposal. But the political response to reality and today’s news is balance. I think he’s trying to make that case to an audience, which he knew would be skeptical."
