    The World Bids Farewell to Obama

    US President Barack Obama suffered a painful defeat in Massachusetts on Tuesday. With mid-term elections looming, it means that Obama will have to fundamentally re-think his political course. German commentators say it is the end of hope.

    Center-left daily Süddeutsche Zeitung writes on Thursday:
    "Obama made a serious misjudgement.

    The Financial Times Deutschland writes:
    "For Obama, the election in Massachusetts means that he will have to re-evaluate his political style

    The left-leaning daily Die Tageszeitung writes:
    "In addition to health care reform, Obama's reputation has primarily been harmed by the high unemployment rate and the increasingly unpopular war in Afghanistan

    The center-right Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung writes:
    "Of course the president rejects the interpretation that the Massachusetts election was a referendum on his first year in the White House. But he cannot ignore the fact that his health care reform package is not popular, the situation of the country's finances is seen as threatening and many voters blame the high unemployment rate on the party in power -- on the Democrats, led by Obama.
