I have had my disagreement with the President. The compassionate part of his conservatism we could have done without.
Same here but I would take "compassionate conservatism" back in a heart beat right about now.

I'm not so sure I'd want to take back the 'compassionate' part of Bush IIs 'compassionate conservativism'. I think that if we did, what we'd find left behind wasn't conservative at all.
His end goals were mostly liberal, he was just willing to try conservative rhetoric and sometimes conservative means to get there.
