“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."

Good Morning Stupid

Thinking about waffels? "Ugh ugh ugh em, I havn't had lunch."  

Obama won the Democratic caucuses in Iowa in 2008. Johnny, Pretty Boy, Edwards, who is currently fighting a losing battle to stay out of prison, came in second and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton finished third.

Obama wants to get back to the people in Iowa, so he flies out in Air Force One, which costs $181,757 an hour to operate, and then gets on a custom-made $1.1 million bus, followed by another custom-made $1.1 million bus and a convoy of everything funded by you. All this is about Mr. Meathead's coming views about creating American jobs. In reality, it is cover for He-Who-Never-Rests and the Movingonup's to rest and play in Martha's Vineyard.

Even Left is Abandoning Obama as His Poll Numbers Continue to Decline

Barack Obama’s poll numbers in heavily Democratic New York have gone negative, with 49 percent disapproving of his job performance compared to only 45 percent who approve. The Quinnipiac University poll last showed the President with a 57 percent approval rating in late June, a drop of 9 points in six weeks. Among Republicans, the poll showed disapproval ratings of 86 percent, up from 74 percent in June, while among Democrats his approval rating dropped from 82 percent to 75 percent. Among independents 58 percent expressed their disapproval, up from 45 percent in June. “The evidence continues to mount,” writes Dan Weil at, “that President Barack Obama’s re-election bid is in trouble.”

The latest daily Presidential Tracking Poll by Rasmussen Reports confirms those results, with their Presidential Approval Index rating at -22 approval index rating, the lowest of Obama's presidency, and down from a +22 approval index rating at the start of his presidency in 2009. Gallup tracks his job approval on a daily basis where 48 percent disapprove of his job performance, his weakest standing since December of 2009. NEW AMERICAN
