Republicans keep telling themselves that they can’t bring up social issues in order to focus on the economy, and yet Mr. Obama and the Democrats keep bringing them up (partly to avoid scrutiny of their abysmal handling of the economy and federal budget). Much as some would like to, we can’t sign a social issues “truce,” because the Democrats won’t.
North Carolina just became the 31st state in the nation to ban so-called “gay marriage,” which has been rejected in every state where citizens have actually had a vote. No, we must not ignore economic issues, which are vital to the survival of this nation, but if the liberals want to change the subject to social issues, this is a conversation we should be ready and willing to have.
