image I had an op/ed published at Fox News today addressing the Republican leadership shift away from social issues like defending traditional marriage and abortion.

“It’s the social issues, stupid.” With the growing list of Republican leaders wanting to throw social conservatism under the bus, I must harken back to the affinity of President Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign catch phrase. Okay, I know that the line then was, "It’s the economy, stupid." And it’s still easy to think about that when, by nature we tend to think with our wallets.

Today, it’s also easy to believe that issues like abortion and marriage are on the periphery in light of longer unemployment lines, an exploding national debt and Obamacare.

To think economic issues should be a major campaign theme is understandable, but to fly the white flag of surrender is quite another. It is nonsensical to declare a truce on social issues when so much is at stake, and we have a strong upper hand.

Be sure to read the rest.
