Betraying the Founding Fathers
George F. Will on the Hijacking of Conservatism
Moderated by Dan Abrams
For almost half a century, George Will has served as conservative America’s conscience, as an editor of National Review, author of a Washington Post column syndicated to 450 newspapers, contributor to Newsweek and commentator for ABC, Fox, NBC and MSNBC. The Pulitzer Prize winner has been called by The Wall Street Journal “perhaps the most powerful journalist in America.”
Will, discussing his new book, The Conservative Sensibility, will outline how American conservatism — based on the Founders’ belief in natural rights, limited government, religious freedom and human dignity — is under threat not only from progressives but from within the Republican Party, from an irresponsible Congress and from a president who has slipped the Constitution’s leash.
