    This was the "compassionate conservatism" BS.

    Like this;

    "Sure we right wingers want to help the less well off it's just that it's coercion if you tax us to do it. So, how 'bout all these points of light* and volunteering, heck we won't need any government at all if y'all do that!?"

    "Volunteerism" has been a puke TP for decades and the subtext is "don't tax us to give our money to lazy (insert racially charged dog whistle here). This is right wing framing but it doesn't surprise me, Obama uses that sort of frame frequently. I've come to believe he actually believes their bullshit.

    It's just sad.
