He was conflating two different things: Compassionate Conservatism, indeed an innovation, and indeed a bad idea (as was McCain's hypercentrist "conservatism," and is Romney's hypermoderate "conservatism"), and the aggressive pseudoempathy of the Left which is quite old, but does indeed fluctuate, unlike greed, which remains constant.
