What Happened to the War on Terror?

From the invasion of Iraq in 2003 until the economy took a turn for the worse during the election, the “€œWar on Terror”€ was the defining issue of the Republican Party. Standard conservative priorities like smaller government and fiscal responsibility and even social issues like abortion, gay marriage and gun rights, all took a backseat to support for the war in Iraq.

So what happened? Listen to virtually any Republican politician or conservative talk show today and you won”€™t hear much about Al-Quada, terrorism or 9/11. You will hear one thing and thing only “€“ how Obama’s massive spending must be stopped. It’s as if the War on Terror never even existed.
