``Rarely have campaign slogans been so promptly contradicted as they are on this day by the appearance of Karamanlis. Samaras is announcing a new beginning, and yet the man preceding him on the stage is his predecessor. Karamanlis has been silent for two-and-a-half years, since the defeat of former Prime Minister George Papandreou's PASOK party in the fall of 2009. He hasn't made a single statement, not on the crisis and certainly not on possible lapses during his term in office. And now he reappears to campaign for his party, as if nothing had happened in the interim.''
