The dramatic ascent of the Tea Party continued in America this week, with the conservative movement scoring another surprise victory in the Republican primary in Delaware. German editorialists digested the news on Thursday and warned that both Republicans and Democrats were right to feel uneasy.
Even a few weeks ago, it was considered impossible that the Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell would win the primary in Delaware. She was long seen as being too far to the right to woo enough votes.

The Democrats vote lock-step for Socialized Medicine, a MASSIVE mortgage on our children's future, gay marriage, state sponsored abortion on demand, speech codes, cap and tax, and demonizes our Military, but we're too far to the right?
Which one of the above was considered a favorable thing 30 years ago? Which party has really moved?
“’Obama Has Underestimated the Frustration in the Country’”
I’m not so sure he give a crap one way or the other.
It is not “frustration” in the country. It the spirit of REBELLION! Rebellion against the Obama/Democrat Party’s marxist enslavement program for America.
OBOZO is only interested in himself and how much power he has. His actions and that of his party will go down in history as the biggest disaster this country has ever had.
Oh, they could. They just won't.
It’s not only Obama who is misinformed about the frustration of the country — so is Congress on both sides of the aisles.
