responding to conservatism's failure

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bob Burnett’s piece on “The Liberal Response to the Failure of Conservatism” at HuffPo sounds a hopeful note for the resurgence of liberalism from the conservative wreckage:

The vacuum left by the failure of conservatism must be filled by an articulate and relevant liberal ideology. The problem won’t be in preparing this—it’s a reformulation of the liberal vision and values of the Founders; basic ideas that last saw a cogent reformulation in “The New Deal.” The problem is finding a liberal spokesperson that Americans trust.

There are actually two crises in American politics: the dominant conservative ideology has failed and, at the moment, the country has no leadership. This dire situation should be a golden opportunity for liberals.
