Germany's Spiegel Online - International
"Several German opinion-makers were clear that the election was more of a referendum on the president, who comes across as "cold, arrogant, and elitist," and less of an endorsement of the Republicans and their policies. There is widespread agreement in the editorial pages that Obama failed to make the case for his administration's accomplishments, a fact that he himself has acknowledged.
But the biggest challenge for Europeans appears to be understanding the role of the Tea Party activists -- described as the "true victors" of Tuesday's elections -- and predicting what kind of influence they will have over the next two years."http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,727235,00.html
2 cents: Even the Germans know the election results were direct result of disapproval of the empty suit O. Thing is - oh boy I really don't want to even think this through - the reality of O will probably be that when he is no longer the president he will make major moolah speaking at universities and colleges (birds of a feather...) and he will reshape his horrible political identity with pontificating blurbs and speeches ad nauseum. Secondly - the next presidential election is not a sure fire kick the bum to the curb event.
