Excerpt from Here Come the Feds -- What President Obama’s second term means for the tech industry.

As the first president to appoint a chief technology officer, President Obama has worked hard to portray himself as a friend to the tech industry.

(Defense R&D would decline by 6 percent.) It is far from certain his budget will make it through a divided Congress, however.
