    Obama is incompetent. It’s obvious from history that the more countries that are involved in a negotiation, the exponentially harder such negotiations become. By taking the low hanging fruit quickly at first, pressure can be put on other trading countries to join, before they lose ground and market share. By using the US and its huge market and powerful military as the anchor country, a trade union and military alliance could be swiftly created, which would make the EU look like small potatoes.
