When the Greek Debt Crisis was unfolding, I would excitedly wake up each day thinking, what stupid statement or tact have the leaders of Greece or their counterparts in negotiations, the European Central Bank made today? Greece had a recently elected leader who was flip-flopping on his stated goals and plans for the country’s economic future on a weekly basis. There was little forward progress being made, and the process marked the beginning of the strained European Union we now see.
“I can not believe the Greek people, with as bad an economy as they have had, would elect such a novice to handle such important issues and lead their country”, I thought to myself on many occasions.
Now I go to the front page of the New York Times and think the same thing.
