The social conservative movement faces oblivion

The social conservative movement has become so sidetracked by narrow pet causes like abortion it's lost touch with basic needs of its core constitutencies. The movement's very existence depends upon the survival a critical mass of stable middle class families.

High divorce rates, low marriage formations and the relentless decline in the affordability of middle class family life jeopardises the movement's continued political relevance and influence.

Distressed at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Memphis and when I addressed conservatives in Washington the other day how blind they are to these issues.

The 2008 presidential election could be its Waterloo.
