Barack Obama is rarely at the White House. He prefers to attempt to govern the USA from his flying fortress, Air Force One.
Today he is in Cannes, France to meet with the political glittery of the G 20. He feels at home in Europe. His popularity is higher in Europe. They like his plan for socialized medicine in Europe. They like his bank bailouts in Europe. This is all understandable, since his expressed desire is to make American "more like Europe."
What he likes about the dysfunctional allies we have in Europe is hard to understand. They have had their much touted "European Union" (EU) brought to its knees by the over spending of one of its smallest members. Can you imagine if the United States was nearing dissolution because of overspending in Rhode Island?
The original agreements made by Greece to enter the EU called for a limit to the deficit spending. Greece complied by sending reports to the European Commission that demonstrated they were making progress and living within their means. Whoops, now we learn the reports were phonier than a three dollar bill, and surprise, the socialist government lied.
By nearly all measures, living in the United States even under Obama is better than living in Europe. All of the elements of Reagan' misery index are higher in Europe. Unemployment is higher in Europe. Inflation is higher in Europe. Interest rates are higher in Europe. Less people own homes in Europe. Less people own cars in Europe. Commodities and food cost more in Europe. Taxes are higher in Europe.

Obama couldn’t be this stupid, everything he’s doing hurts America. It’s on purpose, he’s a Muslim Terrorist playing POTUS.
