Fifteen years to the month after Newt Gingrich proposed the “Contract with America,” just how healthy is the American right? While there is plenty of populist anger towards President Obama’s progressive policies, it’s hard to find concrete evidence that the conservative movement and the Republican Party have recovered from the political wounds of the mid- to late-2000s, and are now strong enough to present the substantive case against the Obama vision. DR Tucker takes a look at what happened to the right between the “glory days” of 1994 and the troubled times of 2009, and whether the conservative movement, recently declared DOA by New York Times writer Sam Tanenhaus, can in fact be resuscitated.
