The Wages of Cultural Hostility Toward Americans

Europe, they're just not that into you.

What does all of this mean? Although Barack Obama rehabilitated the image of the United States in Europe, Europe has so far failed to reinvigorate its image in the United States, particularly among younger Americans who do not necessarily have strong links to European ancestry or positive memories of Cold War-era alliances. For transatlantic relations to thrive in the future, Europe needs to do a lot more to capture the imagination of a new generation of Americans.
I suppose what they mean by "Transatlantic Relations" is suckering and mooching off of the US, but we get the idea. We expect the sale reps to not sneer, but that's about it.
