They (media) just don't get it! well most don't
To understand why this is so, it just has to be appreciated that the purpose of the Lisbon treaty was not "as advertised". And so shamelessly sold to us, about extending the external reach of the EU, but one continuing the internal process of consolidating the structures and institutions of the EU government and increasing its internal powers. Watch and weep for all the rest can come later.
Once that is understood, the events of the last few days are completely coherent, and entirely in character. The name of the game is European political integration, AND The Commission has just won the qualifying rounds.
