    Compassionate Conservatism


    Compassionate Conservatism is a form of Conservatism which blends conservatism with notions of compassion, such as increased welfare and international aid support. A core tenant of compassionate conservatism is the idea of being fiscally conservative without losing commitment to the needy.


    History

    "Compassionate Conservatism" was coined in 1977 by Doug Wead in his book The Compassionate Touch. Wead used this label throughout his political career to describe himself.

    George W. Bush picked up the label in 1987 and promoted it for his presidential run in 2000.

    Many christian democratic groups in the United States also picked up the label. The label picked up small usage in the United Kingdom and New Zealand, however remains largely an American political term. The ideology experienced a large decline after Bush left office and after the rise of the Tea Party movement.
