Obama to attend European Union summit in November

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama will travel to Portugal in November for a summit with the leaders of the European Union, the White House announced Tuesday.

The meeting on November 20 in Lisbon will include European Council President Herman Van Rompuy and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, according to a news release.

"The president looks forward to this opportunity to meet again with EU partners, to reaffirm our transatlantic agenda, and to advance our cooperation on issues of mutual concern," said the release, which called the U.S.-EU economic relationship "vital to global prosperity."

    Reminds me of the old Willie Nelson song, "On the Road Again". To bad he does not go on the road and stay there.

    Typical Obama ,he can't figure out how to solve our problems at home so he runs overseas and tries to tell others how to manage their affairs.

    Good timing. Barry can explain to his fellow socialists in the EU why his party just got their heads handed to them in the U.S. elections. I guess it really doesn't matter though because nobody, not even the Europeans, take Obama seriously anymore.
