Neoconning the electorate

Reuther, Rosemary
January 2005
National Catholic Reporter;1/21/2005, Vol. 41 Issue 12, p17
The article discusses the re-election of U.S. President George W. Bush in 2004 as the representation of a triumph of Christian right and neoconservatives in their joint battle to push "liberalism" off the charts of American political opinion. This marriage between the right and the neoconservatives have been building its political base since the late 1970s, and it has brought together two wings of American conservatism that previously were distinct and even disdainful of each other. Protestant fundamentalists were largely apolitical from the 1930s through the 1970s.
