Barroso to visit Greece for the first time in three years

Jose Manuel Barroso, the president of the European Commission (the most powerful officeholder in the EU), will today visit Greece for the first time in more than three years the EU Observer writes. This means that he has not been there once since the process of bailing out Greece started. The EU observer explains,

"In the three years since, Greece has received two EU-IMF bailouts, seen its GDP plunge and its unemployment rate shoot up. There have been three general elections, social unrest, and continued speculation about the viability of its eurozone membership".

Wow, that is hands-on leadership for you! How he gets to keep his job (and get paid!) we can only wonder. Another good reason to get rid of the EU altogether.
