Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ok, EuroTribbers, I need your help.

Since I can only read two languages, I am only able to look at news about Obama and his trip to Europe in English and in Dutch.

This means I've been reading the US news, the BBC news website, and Dutch news regarding the G20.

Obviously, the next big event is the NATO summit.

Anyway, here's where I need your multilingual help:

Is it just me, or is the way the US news is covering Obama's trip (and his role in the G20 meetings) vastly different from how media in the EU is covering it?

Namely, it's all happy-happy-awesome-rah-rah-America-Obama vs., uh, reality?

Tell me I'm not imagining this.

I feel like I'm reading about two different G20s and two different presidents.  It's rah-rah-America versus skepticism, at least as far as I can tell.

Makes my head spin.
