Example text

Von meinem Einwand, die Lieferung sei doch in jeder Hinsicht vernünftig, sodass wir dafür eintreten sollten, hielt er gar nichts. Die Israelis seien schließlich dagegen, erklärte er, obwohl sie sich nicht direkt bedroht fühlten. Otto Graf Lambsdorff, der wie -38- ich für die Lieferung war, zog es vor zu schweigen. Prompt wurde dieser Teil der Gespräche nur innerhalb der SPD-Verhandlungsdelegation geführt; die FDP-Delegation saß dabei, hörte zu und schwieg. Und wie Genscher vo rausgesagt hatte, ging es unter den Verhandlungsführern der SPD hin und her.

Oberflächliche Kritiker und Kleingeister sagen: Eure Siege in Kiel und Düsseldorf verdankt ihr doch nur dem schlechten Zustand der CDU. Was für ein dummes Argument zumal in der Fußballsaison. Natürlich ist die Schwäche des Gegners ein Vorteil: Aber doch nur, wenn man ihn strategisch nutzt! Dass CDU oder SPD oder Grüne oder alle nicht gut dastehen, ist überhaupt noch kein Grund, FDP zu wählen! Die Beweggründe, überhaupt zu wählen und das Kreuz bei der FDP zu machen, mussten wir in Kiel und Düsseldorf und müssen wir im Bund schon selbst liefern: emotional und in der Sache - und in sprechenden Bildern statt nur mit Bildern von Sprechenden; kurzum: durch eine mitreißende professionelle Kampagne, in der alles glaubwürdig und überzeugend zusammenpasst: Person und politische Ziele, Inhalt und Stil.

FDP-Bundesparteitag Nürnberg, 16. Juni 2000 Liebe Parteifreunde und Parteifreundinnen: Wolfgang Kubicki hat uns mit der Schleswig-Holstein-FDP zu Jahresbeginn eine grandiose Steilvorlage geliefert. Wir Freie Demokraten in Nordrhein-Westfalen konnten sie im Mai in einen schönen Sieg verwandeln. Das war nur möglich, weil wir uns im Dezember 1999 ein scheinbar unmögliches Ziel gesetzt hatten: 8 Prozent. Ich sehe noch die Gesichter der Düsseldorfer Journalisten, als ich in jenem Dezember der Landespressekonferenz unsere Strategie für die Landtagswahl vorstellte und mit dem Schild »8 Prozent« ins Bild setzte.
