Gimme a break!!! No GMAFB!!!
The source article focuses on our European friends but I ask you to consider that WE (our US leaders) aren't much better. Source article is Slate
...and our elites want to be more like Europe!!
Last Monday, while Barack Obama fought for a second bank-rescue plan in addition to the fiscal stimulus, EU member states discussed the possibility of discussing the possibility of acting in unison. In response to a request from France and Germany, the president of the union, the Czech prime minister, announced an April "summit." But he didn't set an exact date or lay out a precise program beyond discussing the valuation of toxic assets.
Note the lack of urgency. I guess Obama got a different memo.
