From the September 15 edition of Hannity & Colmes:
ALAN COLMES (co-host): Joining us now with more reaction to President Bush's speech tonight, former Clinton adviser Dick Morris. Dick, I thought that he sounded like FDR [President Franklin Delano Roosevelt], and I thought he sounded like LBJ [President Lyndon Baines Johnson]. And any liberal could have given that speech tonight.
MORRIS: I thought he sounded like a compassionate conservative, something we heard about in 2000 and haven't seen.
COLMES: Doesn't that mean liberal?
MORRIS: I thought that this speech was as important and as good a speech as any since his address to the joint session of Congress after 9-11. It was a female speech. It was a caring speech. And, you know, George Bush basically believes the federal government should do two things, fight wars and help people recover from disasters. And now he's got both on his plate.
