Mrs Von del Leyen's speech on the State of the Union was not politically adequate, neither in tone nor in content. Giving right-wing extremists to the opposition does not help, also because this accounts for almost 50% of the parliament. All extremists? Draghi himself criticized the unsustainability of some European rules: is he a right-wing extremist too?
In reality, the intervention of the President of the Commission was particularly lacking. He talked about Green Deal, but always with the usual fifth grade homework tone and without realism, as always. He then spoke of the labor market and the European minimum wage, without realizing that the problem currently in many countries is not the minimum wage, but the lack of work.
Von Der Leyen gave a spiteful and unnecessarily polemical speech, which highlights the profound political difficulties in which she and the German government are moving, on the verge of a "Green" nervous breakdown, of which she is a direct expression.
