    Europe Warns Obama: This Relationship Is Not Working

    To think, I remember hearing so many people justify their vote for Obama based on foreign policy. Maybe not as much of an improvement there after all? I'll report you decide (ha, see what I did there?)!

    Per Article:
    Europe's disappointment with President 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.

    Given the GOP's interference on every single issue of significance, this does not come as a surprise.

    I can't think of anyone that voted for Obama based on his foreign policy? Come to think about it, I can't think of any reason why people voted for Obama.

    Every single issue of significance?

    Can you provide us with the top three "most significant" foreign policy issues, what the GOP interference was for each, and how that affected our relationship with Europe?

    Why would it. By the way, the one thing the GOP cannot be blamed for is, Foreign Policy interference. They have exactly zero say in the matter unless the President wants them too. By wants them too, notwithstanding declaratioins of war, and funding, congress has no say!

    Hehe.. Although, I like Sarah personally, she's not Presidential IMO. I know that will piss off a lot of conservatives, but I happen to think it's true.

    You can find three in the OP.

    The GOP controls enough of congress to force cloture votes whenever they feel like it. If they want to make the effort, they can block and and all legislation from passing the Senate. If you think congress has no effect on foreign policy and relations, I don't know what to tell you.

    Re: Europe Warns Obama: This Relationship Is Not Working

    I remember quite clearly that a lot of people didn't like Obama because he had little to no foreign-policy experience.

    I'm getting old - but this was just two years ago so it's likely an accurate memory I have.
