Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) makes the conservative case against divorcing economic and social issues:
BAIER: Some of your fellow Republicans - Mitch Daniels, the governor of Indiana, has suggested calling a truce on social issues while the country deals with the emergency economic situation. What do you think about that?
DEMINT: Well, you can’t be a fiscal conservative and not be a social conservative. A large part of the expansive government is to make up for a dysfunctional society because our culture’s falling apart. The family’s falling apart.
Media Matters disapproves, but they are being overliteral. There are obvious, well-documented connections between family breakdown and the growth of the welfare state. (There are also less obvious but equally well-documented connections that run in the opposite direction.)
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
