George W. Bush’s Evangelical Conservatism:   

Or, How the Republicans Became Red

February 23, 2005

President Bush’s remarkable Second Inaugural Address seems to mark a point of departure for American conservatism’s next generation. But how great a departure? What are its chief intellectual and cultural sources? And what are its likely consequences? EPPC Senior Fellow Wilfred M. McClay addressed these questions in a lecture.
