Episode 7: Compassionate Conservatism


WORLD Radio - Episode 7: Compassionate Conservatism

In 1999, George W. Bush launched his presidential campaign as a Compassionate Conservative. Many of the policies he advocated came straight out of the playbook of 19th century poverty fighters. Soon, compassion tactics from 200 years ago were shaping national politics... and drawing criticism from all sides. This episode is about 19th century compassion versus D.C. politics.
