“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."

When politicians are out of ideas, they go for patriotism. Obama calls for economic patriotism.

There is really not a lot going on between those two big ears is there?


  1. I don’t think there is anyone there.

  2. The Obama White House is finally admitting that the attack on the Libyan consulate that killed four Americans was a terrorist act because “people kept calling for the truth,” Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson tells Newsmax.TV.

    “People kept calling for the truth and, in the end, the administration realized that what they had tried to put together – blaming it on this movie and having it as a spontaneous act rather as being a terrorist act – wasn’t going to sell because it obviously wasn’t true,” Isakson, a Republican member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview. “I don’t understand the motivation to do that unless they didn’t want to have a terrorist attack against a United States’ sovereign territory on their watch, but that’s what happened. The truth ought to be what comes out and not some scenario they want to people to believe."

    Isakson and fellow GOP committee member, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, are demanding the release of the final cables of murdered U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens as well as answers from the State Department about the Sept. 11 attacks in Libya.

    1. .

      Release of the final cables?

      You'll have to wait for the next release from Wikileaks to get that.


  3. Did they lie about the details of the attack, or just not use the terminology that Romney is using for political gain?
