Could a full time EU President save Europe

The EU has a rotating presidency of 6 month terms and is currently lead by the Czech Prime Minister Mr. Topolanek. There is lots of talk of having a full time EU President to avoid embarrassments like the ones in recent months. Topolanek is the leader of a small country with little economic weight and his own government was recently toppled. During Obama’s visit to Europe Topolanek called his economic plans a “way to hell”. Some think that leadership of the EU should be left to the real economic powers.
