Greece has taken over the presidency of the European Union, vowing that its efforts to recover from six years of recession and two huge financial bailouts, are about to bear fruit.

Greek ministers will chair EU meetings for the next few months in the run-up to European elections in May.

Chris Morris reports from Athens.

It makes about as much sense as putting Castro in charge free market opportunities. :thud:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

Sort of like putting Iran or Syria in charge of the UN human rights commission (which has happened).
