Euro-diplomat speak

When Czech PM and European Union council president Mirek Topolánek said that Barack Obama had put America on the way to hell, he was just calling for more discussion between the US and the EU.

UPDATE: This is becoming a farce. Topolánek now says that he said "road to perdition" and not "road to hell" but also that Tim Geithner had freaked out the EU Council a couple of weeks ago.

What exactly is this EU-USA summit next week supposed to discuss?

Note that there still appears to be no official transcript of what he said to the European Parliament.
