A person who claims to be guided by and a follower of conservative ideals and principals, but in reality is primarily and mostly just the opposite. While they may take a conservative stance on a few periphery issues, and even speak in conservative terms and espouse conservative ideas, they are in reality individuals who at their core are functionally anti-conservative.

A good reference group to look at that exemplifies pseudo-conservatism is the neocons. Neocons more often than not espouse ideas such as being "pro-life", pro-Constitution, pro-America, pro-freedom, pro-liberty, and pro-democracy. They will also espouse the idea of "smaller government". However in reality, the policies they support and implement are in direct contrast and conflict with those positions.

Neocons more often than not espouse ideas such as being "pro-life", pro-Constitution, pro-America, pro-freedom, pro-liberty, and pro-democracy, and also espouse the idea of smaller and more limited government. However in reality, the policies they support and implement are in direct contrast, opposition, and conflict with those positions.

A few of many notable examples of pseudo-conservative neocons are...

George H.W. Bush
George W. Bush
Dick Chaney
Mitt Romney
Rich Santorum
Newt Gingrich
Michele Bachmann
Sean Hannity
Mark Levin
