Why do people talk about "compassionate conservatism" when the phrase is technically an oxymoron?

    Do I smell a conservative bias or is that liberal compassion?

    LOL. It's my way of agreeing with you and bitch-slapping you at the same time. :slap:

    You don't hear Democrats shouting out "let him die" referring to someone who is ill at AT THEIR PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE do you?

    You don't hear Democrats rushing to protect gun rights after a massacre at an elementary school.

    You don't hear any Democrats saying things like "Feed the poor and they will breed" and "children work better hungry".

    You don't see Democrats blackmailing the country into extending tax cuts for the rich.

    You don't see Democrats working to cut food stamps for children and veterans.

    You didn't see Democrats apologizing to BP and working to keep the president from investigating them after that horrendous oil spill in the gulf.

    You could go on and on. The list is endless. The Republicans kneel at the alter of the Church of the Heartless Bastard. Why they deny it is beyond me. It's who they are. They should be proud.
