Michael Barone’s Very Good Point

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on January 2, 2011

As he notes, irrespective of whether one agrees with Mitch Daniels’s calls for a truce on social issues, the fact of the matter is that there is a de facto truce on social issues currently in existence, as Americans are much more concerned about the economy, and about foreign policy/national security issues. Perhaps once the economy is humming healthily once again, and perhaps when foreign policy and national security issues do not seem as pressing as they currently are, social issues will once again rank high in the national consciousness. But that’s not likely to happen for some time.
