Obama blocks the Lisbon Treaty?

The Obama administration is less hot than the Bush presidency about a deal on radar stations in the Czech Republic.

Ergo, the Czech Republic ─ a member state of the European Union, not the United States of America ─ is unable to ratify the Treaty of Lisbon, it seems.

This, from the prime minister of the country holding the presidency of the EU Council.

The Czech government has made it abundantly clear that the European Council needs a competent presidency.
