Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, but only blaming politicians elsewhere, using every op-ed by some german as an expression of german policy, talking about "Frankfurt", arguing like Merkel is some kind of dictator, assuming she is not just one out of 27 head of governments but the only one is nationalistic blame shifting, scape goating and not really the behaviour of federalist europeans.

You mean someone who has decided to bully the other members (with the exception of France) into writing economic insanity clauses into their constitutions isn't acting like a dictator?

The fact that there's a remarkable lockstep on both sides of the Atlantic hardly absolves Merkel of quasi-imperial drooling tin pot idiocy.

But you seem to think Germany has nothing to do with this and is barely even a side player.

Your entire world view seems oddly counterfactual.
