LOL - the 2006 and 2008 elections were NOT lost because social issues Republicans didn’t go to the polls. The 2012 election will not be won entirely on social issues, either.

I saw numbers the other day that disagree with you. If I can remember where I saw them, I’ll post the link and ping you. Is that ok?

Social issues were tangential to 2010 as well.

His point is well taken, though, the moderates run content-free bloodless campaign that drain enthusiasm. It’s not #1 issue, but you make it part of the appeal. Millions of prolife catholics will vote Romney/Ryan if they are catered to. They may do something idiotic if, you know, we dont campaign or only talk about business formation which, gosh, not everybody has as their #1 issue.

No, but it can certainly be lost there. The Republican Party must find a way to get its social base to the polls. "He's not Obama" might but it for some, but certainly not for everyone.

We can and must multitask. Social conservatism is the basis for conservatism since it teaches us the difference between right and wrong.
