While I do not think that the "Old Guard" of the Republican party has changed its tarnished stripes, they do know enough to go with the flow, so to speak. However, between pundits (whatever that means) and journalists (which is an oxymoron) there seems to be the opinion that voters are one or two issue sort of folks. That fiscal conservatives and social conservatives are mutually exclusive, that you must be one or the other but never both. I do not thin political writers on either side truly have a good working knowledge of voters. Conservatives will need BOTH social conservatives, fiscal conservatives and every other type of conservative to defeat a Marxist Communist like Obama and his brain dead followers.
