Spying is not that "unusual" but usually there is a specific target in mind. Or during tense times. But the US spying program is data mining-ANY information it can get is fair game. But it is not an ethical game.
These foreign heads of states knew and know spying goes on but now it's out in the open instead of an underground bunker. Spying on everyone is accepted as part of the unwritten rule book-it's wink wink, look the other way , ignore, pretend it didn't happen, deny etc. It's a confirmation and not a revelation. The foreign heads of state have to act all surprised to appease their citizens who thought of themselves as more civilized.
The range and scope of the program is out of control. But where did these foreign heads of state think alot of US shared intelligence came from. They don't seem to be complaining when they get it.
Nor do they want to admit they do it to the US and others. Heck John Walker was giving intel to Isreal and they were accepting it and they were/are supposed to be one of our staunchest allies.
Kerry and the administration are trying to publically rationalize and minimize this like a junky begging for money right now. If you can't rationalize it out in public maybe it's time to listen to the public-no more big brother blanket spying.

I agree with you up above, most countries do the same, we have caught Isreal on several occasions. What makes me angry is that our government is so out of control and I hope european leaders give us a good slap in the butt, this is not how you treat your friends.
