Republican Strategy: 'Bridge to the 17th Century'

"That Republican strategy for four decades has been focused on creating a false populist appeal to white swing voters – who are mostly working class -- based on appeals to racism, religious extremism, anti-immigrant sentiment, anti-gay attitudes and other “cultural” issues. The current 'war on women' is just another one of the ugly locations to which this strategy has taken them, as they build their bridge to the 17th century."

--Mark Weisbrot in Common Dreams
