German Chancellor Angela Merkel is furious with the United States for roiling the world economy and expecting Europe to help clean up the mess. “We did what we were supposed to do. ... We adopted a decent EU regulation ... but when it came to it, the Americans said ‘that’s not for us.’ ”
Merkel is not alone in her outrage. As Germany’s top Social Democrat put it: “The Americans cannot hold Germany responsible for its own failure and arrogance.”
Merkel probably remembers W's arrogance and stupidity a couple of years ago when he slammed himself up against her and began to massage her shoulders!
In less than 8 years, this is what America has become to the rest of the world...an arrogant failure, just like the man now calling himself President.
