Do you have any idea how absurd "some papers are accusing him of federalism" sounds over here?
You object to his being appointed by the parliament you voted for? You want to vote for a president yourself, yes?
THAT IS CALLED FEDERALISM.
(Americans who don't understand: this is to do with the European elections, and with the British Texan desire to secede. In fact there are so many similarities between Britain and Texas it's not even funny. I might start calling those particular Brits Texibrits.)
