Compassionate conservatism

From George ‘Dubya’ Bush's keynote speech at the Republican convention:

‘It is conservative to cut taxes. It is compassionate to help people save. It is conservative to exercise your political power. It is compassionate to have pity on those unlucky enough not to be born into major political dynasties. It is conservative to own a gun. It is compassionate to use it wisely. It is conservative to execute criminals. It is compassionate to worry about whether they might have been innocent.’
