More Cracks in the Facade

Europe Warns Obama: This Relationship Is Not Working

Europe’s disappointment with Persident Barack Obama’s presidency was laid bare Thursday as the EU’s most senior figure called for a dramatic effort to revive transatlantic relations.

The President of the European Commission said the new era at the White House was in danger of becoming a “missed opportunity” for Europe.

José Manuel Barroso said the EU-U.S. relationship was not living up to its potential. The criticism follows a series of fundamental disagreements on how to deal with the economic crisis, climate change and trade reform.
If Great Britain is being treated as 'just another country', and Israel is openly criticized, what chance did Europe think it had with this administration?
