Is there one top-tier candidate that is consistently and pro-actively talking about the culture war in this country? Go down the list. Not one of them is doing it. Sure, they make mention of an issue or two once in a while, but there really hasn’t been a concerted effort to come up with any speech that tackles the moral issues that conservative Christians care about.
Mitt Romney has done that. Watch what is being called his “Frontiers of Freedom” speech. Click here. It’s pretty powerful.
I know Mitt Romney has his critics and they’ve taken their shots. I’m sure there are more to come. But you can also make the case that he’s the most “pro-family” candidate out there. He even has the “perfect family” thing going. I feel like every time I see them I start to whistle the “Leave it to Beaver” theme song. Does Romney have warts? Sure. Do the other candidates? You bet.
If you want a GOP nominee who loves America, take your pick. They can all pass that litmus test. But if you want one who talks about the importance of “the four walls of the American home”–and has fought to protect it where it faces perhaps the most bitter assault–you’ve only got one real option.
