Well, it's finally out about the real meaning of "Compassionate Conservatism"

Anyone who was a real conservative could see that "compassionate conservatism" was just a codeword for Liberal-lite.

In his first term we wached "W" using a grain shovel to throw money out the window, and then come up with the perscription drug fiasco (anybody know exactly how much over-budget it really is? ) which I seem to remember something like 25%-BEFORE it even starts the money sluce.

Then there was the illegal amnesty balloon.
The doing whatever they could to make the MSM , and Libs like them- Ted Kennedy's school plan.
It's early, and I don't want to think of the rest, but came upon this at Drudge

The White House budget director Josh Bolten on Monday bragged to reporters how the nation most-wealthy will see an increase in tax burden under Bush's new budget.

"If you look at the president's tax cuts as a totality, the income tax, those at the upper end of the spectrum are now paying a larger share of the income tax than they were before," Bolten explained.

"An example, the top 5 percent in income in this country -- that's people making above about $140,000 -- without the president's tax cuts that top 5 percent would be paying about less than 52 percent of our total income tax revenue.

"After the president's tax cut that group is paying more than 54 percent of our total tax revenue. So the notion that the president's tax cuts have somehow made the code less progressive is wrong. The president's tax cuts have made the tax code more progressive."


Ok, maybe they're making subtle digs at the libs (progressives), but the increas of 2% of taxes for the top %5 of taxpaying Americans isn't what I'd call fiscally conservative.

Gawd I wish we could get a REAL conservative in power. I don't care which party they're from.
