Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, I was giving the English-language sources a benefit of doubt here. But checking some news this morning, for example SPIEGEL's article on the weakening of Merkel, I don't find any officials of the CDU blaming Greece. They all chose a more general talk about the bad start of the federal government, with focus on the tax cut conflict with the FDP. (The SPIEGEL article mentions Greece only as an additional trouble for Merkel's government.)

So, as Detlef indicated, this Greece meme in the English-language media is totally overblown.
