Why the attacks on Bill Bennett?
Bill Bennett a radio host and former secretary of education recieved a call in which argued for abortions due to Levitt's thesis. This thesis is that the reason for the crime decline in the nintys was that poor blacks were not having as many children which lowered the numbers of those most likely to commit crimes. Bill Bennett responded that if you aborted all blacks the crime rate would go down but that would still be a monstrous evil. The Democrats heard the trifecta of a conservative who said blacks were more likely to commit crimes and could be taken out of context to say kill all blacks. This was an opportunity which could not be missed. Of course the White House called the comments inappropriate because it's the path of least resistance. Couldn't the White House show some backbone just once.
