IMO, "compassionate conservatism" is one of those political shadow terms used to provide cover for a closet liberal. No real conservative could have sat for so long on his "veto" pen while so many lousy bills and excessive budgets crossed his desk.

While Bush was able to start the engine on one of the best economies ever through his tax cuts, and his GWOT Initiative was what was needed to push back against Islamist extremist terrorism, I am hard-pressed to give his administration much above a "C" grade . . . . . . . and that's being exceedingly generous!!

Agreed.

Nor would they have sought the resignations of: John Ashcroft (DOJ); Porter Goss (CIA); Donald Rumsfeld (DOD) and John Bolton (U.N. Ambassador).

I suspect he has practically declared himself to be out of the closet as the liberal RINO he is. And no truly American President, let alone a conservative...calls the Minutemen..."Vigilantes".
