Krauthammer’s Takeaway

Here is Charles Krauthammer’s takeaway from the elections yesterday — an analysis done before the results were in. Krauthammer points out how much the nation has changed in two years and calls the Tea Party movement an “amazing story of the last year.” The Tea Party barely existed a year ago, he points out, and he then runs through what it has achieved in Massachusetts, in Kentucky, in Utah, and elsewhere.

“This is, I think,” Krauthammer concludes, “a tribute to how radical is the Obama agenda. This is a spontaneous reaction to overreach. … This is an amazing, spontaneous phenomenon.”

Indeed it is, and its effects have not yet been fully felt.
