Why just snub UK or France or Poland if you can snub EU?

It is not a big news in the US yet but EU's media talk about it for at least 48 hours. Obama decided to snub EU by not coming to US-EU summit. Here are some highlights: BBC: Barack Obama is to skip a US-EU summit due in May, DW-World.de: Spanish PM Zapatero visits US amid flap over Obama’s no-show decision, EUobserver.com: Obama to skip EU-US summit in Madrid, Rp.pl: Does Obama have enough of Europe? (in Polish, my translation), Wp.pl: Obama's blow to EU(in Polish, my translation).

One of EU's MPs calls it another slap in the face.

So, what is his excuse? "President Barack Obama's decision not to come to an EU summit in Madrid in May is partly due to confusion arising from the Lisbon Treaty" even though Europeans are not confused at all. (US blames Lisbon Treaty for EU summit fiasco)
