    A new book by former White House aide Michael Gerson suggests conservatism has lost its conscience.

    Gerson is wrong.

    You can’t lose what you never had.

    Ex-White House Official's New Book Tackles Conservatism's Conscience – For Michael Gerson, the pattern became discouragingly familiar. A proposal to help the poor or sick would be presented at a White House meeting, but Vice President Cheney’s office or the budget team or some other skeptical officials would shoot it down. Too expensive. Wrong priority. [Washington Post Political News]
