The HopeChange Chronicles: Europe Feels a Cold Draft From Washington

HOPECHANGE! Argh. Here's a quote for you:
“There’s a growing worry everywhere in Europe that we have the first U.S. president since 1945 to show no interest in what’s happening on this side of the relationship.”
Admit it, much as you might hate to: in a cold-eyed analysis, the much-maligned Dubya treated Europe better than Obama is currently doing -- a fact that French president Sarkozy was recently quoted as noting. Oh, my!

UPDATE: Amusing comment: "Well, they sure hated the hip-shootin' cowboy from Texas, didn't they? They got what they said they wanted and they hate that even more." Hm, be careful what you wish for?
