Comment "At some point, I would like to find the right time to leave politics," Angela Merkel said. In subsequent years, Merkel jettisoned so many traditional CDU positions that it is more accurate to speak of a re-founding of the party than a process of modernization.
Many conservatives have since been unable to recognize their old party.
They would like to see the immediate end of the Merkel era -- there is really no other way to interpret comments made recently by CSU party leadership. And to achieve that goal, they are prepared to sacrifice the decades-long partnership between the two conservative parties.
Discussions about Merkel within the CSU are characterized by rage and malice. For quite some time, the CSU itself seemed unsure as to exactly who it wanted to turn away at the border, but the main thing was to take a tough line.
The Fall of Merkel? Merkel, meanwhile, views such a policy as the kind of unilateral German move that she would like to avoid. If Seehofer and his party fulfill their promise to soon begin turning people back from the border -- on which no senior CSU politician leaves any doubt -- then Merkel would only be left with two options: In hindsight, it seems as though the conflict we are now seeing between the CDU and CSU is but the logical final act of a link that has always been slightly neurotic, but which transformed into open distrust and even hate since the fall of The steady stream of "compromises" on refugee policy could only briefly conceal just how bad the atmosphere had become in this partnership.
And it would mark the beginning of a government crisis: At SPD headquarters in Berlin, preparations are already being made for new elections this fall. I understand that I may repeal my consent at any time. She hopes to be able to come up with her "European solution" to the refugee problem by July 1, the CSU having opted to give her a brief respite even though there are some in the party who argued against doing so.
The way the chancellor is being pushed around by her sister party these days has degenerated into an embarrassing political spectacle.
Still, the chancellor has chosen to confront the challenge and is fighting hard to retain her hold on power. Or at least her hold on her office.
Much More at Stake But it is difficult to imagine how Merkel and the CSU leadership will be able to yet again arrive at one of those compromises that have repeatedly been exposed as nothing but a chimera over the years.
The mutual mistrust in the two camps is simply too great. What is currently taking place in Bavaria and Berlin is unprecedented in the history of the partnership between the two parties.
To be sure, there has been significant turbulence in the past, most famously in when the alliance almost broke apart for good. But the conflict today is deeper and more bitter.
And far more is at stake. On Monday, the Shakespearean drama currently being staged by the two conservative parties was on full display.
Following a crisis meeting between the two party leadership committees, Merkel and Seehofer held press conferences at exactly the same time to issue their latest threats against each other.
Political partners generally try to avoid concurrent press events. Adversaries, however, do not. The result was that Seehofer in Munich had to be told by a journalist what Merkel had just said minutes before in Berlin. Namely that the question of turning back refugees at the border touched on her constitutional privilege to determine government policy.
The journalist then asked what Seehofer, as German interior minister, had to say about that. That would be rather unusual between two party chairs," he finally said. Both Merkel and Seehofer called meetings of their party leadership committees to ensure they had the necessary support in the conflict between the sister parties.
Even before the CSU meeting, of course, there had been little doubt that the party would back Seehofer.
At the conclusion of the meeting, former party head and honorary chairman Edmund Stoiber held another of his famously spirited addresses. The CDU and "that Ms. The leadership committee cheered and rollicked as if they were in a beer tent. Merkel has managed to present the conflict to the CDU as a frontal attack on her person, a characterization essentially consistent with how it is seen in the CSU as well.

Doing so has guaranteed her the strong backing of her party, even if there are plenty who disagree with her on refugee policy. Following the press conferences, it was definitively clear that all attempts to defuse the conflict had failed. An additional meeting the next day also produced no results.

His attempts to better the lives of his creation brought him into conflict with Zeus.
