Barack Obama has read the riot act to the leaders of several European countries - saying more dramatic action is needed to avert a eurozone meltdown.
The U.S. President made telephone calls to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Italian President Giorgio Napolitano late last night.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said the president had demanded faster action from Europe.
It came as Hong Kong revealed it had plunged into recession.
Speaking from the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation conference, Geithner said: 'The crisis in Europe remains the central challenge to global growth.

They have one, too? Maybe they just need a fresh shot of porkulus borrowing.
It’s the Bush tax cuts that did it. He lowered taxes all across Europe.
Hong Kong announced it’s in recession? That’s big news.
NWO’s man of the hour.../s
And.....if they don’t obey “the anointed one?” What then?
They will be made to hold large books over their heads until they can’t hold them anymore? Even worse punishments?????
That will really scare the hell out of them and make them do something.
They need more “green energy”. That stuff means jobs, jobs, jobs!
“Global growth”? How about the growth of our own country? We can’t help anyone else if we can’t help ourselves. When when these people realize this? By the way......if the United States is broke, if Europe is broke, if Russia is broke......where is all the money? Did they just burn it all?
The child in the white house does not have enough gravitas to read the riot act to a bunch of girl scouts let alone the leaders of Europe....
Did they laugh hysterically, say “get the plank out of your own eye first”, and hang up?
Had to double check to make sure this wasn’t from The Onion or somewhere similar. Who’s going to listen to this whine ass whose main goal is saving his own hide?
What an arrogant f****. It still amazes me.
I’m surprised they even answer the phone to him.
Please, send them Bernanke!
Not exactly the words I was gonna use, but this sums up my thoughts well enough that I won't even bother to try. Good job!
Just clearing the desk before his next vacay to Bali, Australia, etc.
If ever there was a case of the POT calling the KETTLE BLACK this is the best example ever.
Achtung Europe! (do you guys like my Austrian?)
Sternly worded letters to follow!
And no Christmas veggie basket from the WH garden for you unless you play together!
Now, if you need need me, call me. I’ll be in Bali.
maybe they will respect...the comfy chair.
“Come on guys, you gotta go big here. This is really hurting my re-election. You know what I mean? So come on... please? Pretty please?”
The follow-up story:
European leaders erupt in uproarious laughter after Obama read them the riot act
Spoken like a community organizer. I see he’s still into arranging the deck chairs on a sinking ship.
What is he? King of the world? What a boor.
Double secret probation?
His arrogance is truly breathtaking.
I thought this guy was some diplomatic genius who was going to fix all our broken relationships around the world.
I bet these Euroleaders are waxing nostalgic for George W these days.
He’s running for president for Pets’s sake!
I think he had to call them to try and portray himself as a leader, because they basically ignored him at the G-20.
I do wonder who actually took his calls.
Some long-suffering personal secretaries on the night shift.
4.3% growth is not exactly a recession, but they consider it that because it’s down 2 straight quarters.
ZerO, if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black, I don’t know what is.
The mouse that roared.
I mean, seriously. He needs to be “bitch-slapped” in the worst way. Or maybe a wedgie.
Pot . . . . . . kettle . . . . .
The One demands faster action. Let’s see, the ECB dumped Billions supporting crashing Italian bonds, now French and Austrian rates are heading up. The Greek government was toppled in favor of an ECB man (the same one who presided over the book cooking that got them into this mess). The Italian government is headed for the same fate. The EFSF floated a bond offering which failed miserably. Germany and France are now looking to exit the EU.
It would appear that the world is running out of the ink and electrons required to print “Money”. The end game approacheth...
What is he? King of the world?
Good grief. Why should European leaders listen to someone who has to bribe his Leftists at home to vote for him next year? Who is “leader” of a country with many TRILLIONS of dollars of debt and no hope of paying it off? Who is the laughing stock of half his country?
BO should have absolutely no credibility in European capitals, but then these countries let a little man with a funny mustache lead them into the world’s most destructive war on their continent.
Fact is that as western civilization gets closer and closer to total meltdown, you will see more and more desperate action by leaders.
"Oh no! It's that arrogant, airheaded mulatto from America again. Who wants to be the Undersecretary this time?"
This coming from a community organizer the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to put this in prespective, with no business or financial background, never held a job, ran a small business, never balanced a personel check book, never held any elected office in a village, town, county, mayor or governor except a senatorship for a whole hot minute, and we can only imagine what they said to each other after they recieved this call.
NATO and various other military subsidies. One reason why defense spending per GDP of Euroweenie countries are low. The kicker, the ungrateful Eurotwits complain about our high amount of defense spending/GDP ratio.
If the United States drops a lot of defense subsidies (In these bad economic times) from Europe, the Euroweenies will be left pissing in the wind. I have no doubt Obama is playing hardball; and he has plenty leverage to scare the pants off the Euro leaders.
Methinks he probably heard FUBO in French, German, and Italian in response....
If the most dynamic economies in Asia: Hong Kong, China?, Taiwan? are ‘plunging’ into recession at what point do they lose the ability to stabilize markets with their purchase of Eurozone debt? The U.S. Debt has gone wanting already to the point that a vast majority of our debt is being monetized by the purchasing of a vast majority of T-Bills by the Federal Reserve Bank.
Hold on tight. The market is up on this news?
For the most part, the people of Europe hate our guts. But mark my words, no matter how much it hurts the American taxpayer, once again our daft politicians will rake their socialist chestnuts out of the fire.
Even worse punishments?????
Yes. Even worse: he will send Mooochelle to Europe shopping. Maybe her lavish spending and that of her 80 person posse will snap Europe out of its slump.
What a jerk.
Barack Obama has read the riot act to the leaders of several European countries - demanding faster action from Europe.
Yea right, sure, whatever you say Jay
What's next, members of the Kennedy family leading sobriety protests in front of bars while popping open another bottle of scotch?
