Gotten A Little Soft


via Gotten A Little Soft | Barack Obama | United States | The Daily Caller.

“Obamaʼs “soft” comment, and its political circumstances, echo a controversial speech by then-President Jimmy Carter. In July 1979, Carter declared that “in a nation that was proud of hard work, strong families, close-knit communities and our faith in God, too many of us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption.”

The speech was lated dubbed the “malaise speech,” even though it did not use the word.

Carter gave the speech as his polls were falling, and the countryʼs economic crisis was worsening while energy prices rose.”

It’s because of you, Mr President.
