The New York Times reports that embattled Czech Prime Minister and E.U. President Mirek Topolanek, addressing the European Parliament, described Obama’s fiscal package as the “road to hell,” saying the bailout would “undermine the stability of the global financial market.”
Yesterday, Topolanek was defeated in a no-confidence vote by the Czech parliament — largely due to criticism of his handling of the financial crisis.
