Bill Bennett wrote an article on LifeNews.com titled “Republicans Must Win the Culture War to Regain Presidency.” It continues to amaze that leaders of the Republican Party can remain as clueless as they are. That Mr. Bennett is a past secretary of education makes it even more disconcerting, because his article shows a lack of ability to objectively process fact based information, which puts his competence in question.
Mr. Bennett says that the coalition President Obama put together to win the election amounted to identity politics. He is correct on that point. The identities comprising the coalition were those aggrieved, ignored and materially harmed by the policies of the Republican Party. Republicans winning the popular vote just once in the last five elections should have given them pause several cycles ago, if there was really concern for the entire country as opposed to a particular few.
