Silly! Hydrating is only a gaffe when a Republican does it. But a very sweaty President Obama looked like he could use some water or an ice bath today as he delivered a lengthy speech at Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.
What? No Marines to fan him and feed him peeled grapes during the speech?
Just when President thought Europe trip couldn't get any more sweaty, takes to a glass box in Berlin in 90F! pic.twitter.com/JsQc9AVLzC

So what's the WH and media's lame spin on the fact Obama garnered 200,000 people in Berlin in 2008 and only 6,000 in Berlin today?

What’s the spin? Hmm … maybe that only the stoic president could brave 90-degree temps?
Obama is DRIPPING with sweat. #Berlin

Optics of Obama speech a little awkward w/o teleprompters because he keeps looking down at his notes. And he's sweaty.

Why is Obama sweating so much? report from the ground in Berlin: 'It's hot here. Damn hot."

I'll bet Obama wished his speech was a little shorter now #sweat

I've seen Obama in swampy Mississippi & 110 degree Palm Springs not break a sweat. But he's sure glistening in Berlin right now.

Never let ’em see you sweat? Obama didn’t have to worry about that with his family.
Noting his wife and daughters are sight-seeing, Pres Obama says "the last thing they want to do is listen to another speech from me."

At some point, you’ve seen enough Obama speeches.
I know how they feel. @markknoller

Will photos of drippy Obama make it into lapdog reports? Drudge editor Joseph Curl says “no.”
POTUS sweating up a storm. Will the WH photographers move a pic? No. Wires know the shot will get used over and over with scandal stories.

But it’s Historic Sweat™!
Sweaty Obama meme hasn't hit Tumblr yet.
