Abstract

At the 1992 Republican National Convention, Pat Buchanan thundered that America was in the midst of a “cultural war,” in which the core values of a “Judeo-Christian tradition” were at stake. Other speakers highlighted the party’s stand against legal abortion and laws protecting homosexuals, and seemed to imply that working women were less fit mothers than those who stayed in the home. Public airing of sentiments such as these have been widely regarded as serious political mistakes, and some analysts have argued that it may have been an important factor in Bush’s loss.
