Soft soap? Naw, more like custard frozen concoctions squirted out like Jimmy Carter's American Malaise.
Malaise sounds like a rich custardy dessert treat - here is some more.
Our 44th President was selected and elected - here was his tough path to the White House:
1961 Barack Hussein Obama II was born August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii

1971-1979 Attended school in Honolulu
1979-1981 Studied at Occidental College for two years
1981-1983 Graduated from Columbia University
1985-1988 Obama worked as Director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP)

Absent from our Timeline of President 44's Life is the appointment of the young community organizer, following his other appointments and marraige, to Woods Fund Directorship and Directorship of the Annenberg Challenge by Billy Ayers.
Likewise absent are all of the appointments and persons who lifted President Obama over the gradus of political life onto Olympus.
Pretty soft, there, tough guy. Oh, and he got a Nobel Peace Prize!
Bang up job, there, Mr. Softee!
