Reuniting Social & Fiscal Conservatism
As people point out President Bush presided over a huge increase in government's spending and interference in our lives. I believe people decided if we are going to be going in that direction we should probably put the real deal in charge.
One thing I am sure we are going to hear. The hoi-palloi, the country club Republicans, the mainstream mastadons are going to pin the GOP loss on the only winners of the night, the socially conservative movement, those rubes those dupes the evangelical voter.
Similar to 2006 socially conservative measures passed and did so in fashion far outperforming any candidate. The lesson is simple conservatives must relearn how to unite social values to fiscal values, it can be done.
