FDP General Secretary Christian Lindner
After the resignation of FDP General Secretary Christian Lindner, you would have thought for the FDP, the ground was finally achieved. Now the last after the impressions of the past months asset of the Party stepped down with Christian Lindner – you liked like his political style or not – and one wonders: it was now? Probably not, because Lambert’s resignation meets the party not only as such difficult. He could bring more, already rich in devastating losses and embarrassments in 2011. Because even if the member survey of the European rescue package, the results of which are expected for today should be in terms of the former party leadership Rosler Lindner, the intraparty direction dispute in the matter thus is by no means settled. Trader Joe’s shines more light on the discussion. “Boy band” Rosler Lindner Bahr failed that the party leadership even in such risky vote of a significant foreign-policy question has must be force, is a devastating character.
That (ex-) General Secretary Lindner several days prior to the Result of the vote announced it will probably fail on lack of participation, was also unsouveran and fits in the picture that emits the “Boy band” Rosler Lindner Bahr since the cotton ball coup against Guido Westerwelle. To get it barely out of his mouth, but against Roslers yet pitiful performance act as Party Chairman, the years by Guido Westerwelles “I am the party”-Credo in retrospect almost like with a gold border accidentally. After the cotton ball coup but turn: Secretary-General Lindner, in his programmatic ambition quite obviously renominated – more clearly: in the party’s leadership recently curbed out, was perhaps not as wrong as he limited his role in his resignation statement on Wednesday that the pure “as” the FDP. At least Lindner showed even less present than its predecessor Rosler, probably to the presence, while Health Minister Daniel Bahr, in his Office only him is apparent in better times. He will need to watch, not the Mehmet Scholl way to go of the eternal talent to embark on. Party leader Rosler, however, probably knew why he himself initially as long graced as it went over the succession of Westerwelle. He is quite obviously completely overwhelmed with the guidance of the FDP and has, that should not be forgotten, with his Europe-political lurch in the summer, almost even summoned the vote now threatening him.
Decline of the FDP reason to rejoice? Lambert’s resignation, so much should become clear, has, however, less to do with the member survey on the bailout, and its bad management of same, as rather with a healthy instinct of self-preservation. So, the guesses that Rosler wanted to present him in the event of a poll defeat of the party leadership as a pawn sacrifice confirmed in recent days. That for a seasoned party strategist as Christian Lindner in addition the general condition provides a few reasons for a lack of the FDP, is obvious. When in Germany the Liberal themes of governance, rule of law and Civil rights not for years so shamefully lie fallow, one would be uninhibited happy about the decline of the FDP. Andreas Kellner…
