    I'm sure the EU will abandon the idea of unanimous consent. It is a bit galling that we can't get that kind of action against torture, secret prisons, or illegal invasions, but we can when the threat is to the stock-market.

    Love that "power of the purse!" It looks so nice up there on the mantle (and not the table) next to the "subpoena power."

      but since the Lissabon treaty has been rejected, we have to start all over...

      It's just so very frustrating.
