I'm not sure we're entirely done here. I think this might receive more attention in the postmortems:

Wahl in Nordrhein-Westfalen: Schwarz-Gelb abgewählt - Wahl in NRW - Politik - FAZ.NET
Vielmehr übernahm der nordrhein-westfälische Integrationsminister Armin Laschet (CDU) das Wort.Instead, North Rhine-Westphalian integration minister Armin Laschet (CDU) spoke for is party.
Laschet gab der Bundespartei eine Mitschuld an den herben Verlusten seiner Partei. Die nordrhein-westfälische CDU habe zwar eigene Fehler gemacht, aber auch keine Rückendeckung aus Berlin erhalten. In den vergangenen Tagen habe sich die Debatte wegen der Griechenland-Krise kaum noch um landespolitische Themen gedreht.Laschet assigned the national party organization a portion of the blame for his party's bitter losses. Although the NRW CDU had made mistakes of its own, he said, it received no backup from Berlin. In recent days, the debate had virtually ignored state-level political issues on account of the Greece crisis.


The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
