I’m awarding the award of the day for chutzpah to Leonardo Agate, writing at tp24 Rubriche, Italy:
Obama, who has dragged European countries along, some unwillingly and to the detriment of themselves, suffers due to a remoteness from the European situation, and cannot overcome the obstacle of his lack of historical experience.
