“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

No Leadership from Obama, Big Surprise
The Obama budget is laughable and a true disgrace as a serious document. I am not going to waste time parsing the numbers. It is financially ruinous. It is abdication of leadership and is nothing more than a shabby blueprint to get Obama re-elected at the cost of whatever it takes. Obama belongs running a car wash where at least he would have a real job and do far less damage.
