    To me it looks like Grover got his wish...




    Paul Krugman: Two Speeches and an Editorial

    Two Speeches and an Editorial:

    President Obama, yesterday:

    Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let us use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind ourselves of all the ways our hopes and dreams are bound together.

    President Obama, May 1, 2009:

    I view that quality of empathy, of understanding and identifying with people’s hopes and struggles as an essential ingredient for arriving as just decisions and outcomes.

    National Review, May 4, 2009:

    Empathy is simply a codeword for an inclination toward liberal activism.

    And let me add Grover Norquist, May 26, 2003 (comment by Brad Delong):

    We are trying to change the tones in the state capitals—and turn them toward bitter nastiness and partisanship. Bipartisanship is another name for date rape.

    Buzz - We had "compassionate conservatism", you saw how well that worked . So now we are going to beat the drums for "compassionate liberalism" . Think it will work any better, it's been around since the "Great Society" & so far it's record is even worse than the aforementioned buzz slogan.

    You had something you called "compassionate conservatism". Not sure what it really was.
