The Republican presidential candidates demonstrated some suspicion and negativity towards Europe, concludes the Atlantic Community:
Huckabee claims Europe is (unintentionally) to blame for some of the US' biggest terror threats, Romney is using an anti-European stance to further his campaign, Giuliani is turning away from Europe to focus on Asia, while McCain, appears committed to revitalizing transatlantic relations.
What do you think? Is that a fair assessment of the candidates' statement on Europe? And if yes, is their suspicion and negativity towards Europe justified?
The good news is certainly that John McCain is the frontrunner. For Europe he would be better than any other Republican candidate.
