Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It started going downhill right after Maastricht, with the ill-fated (and uninspiring) Santer Commission. The Prodi Commission was a respite of sorts, but 10 years of Barroso just about killed it. And Barroso was reappointed in 2009, just so there wouldn't be a Commission counterweight to German "leadership" on crisis management.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
