Dear President Obama, Although I didn't vote for you, I accept that the majority of Americans selected you to lead this great country. I pledge my support and respect for the office you now hold. I ask only that you seek wisdom and guidance from the One True God in taking us forward. I am proud to see Dr. King's dream at last fulfilled and pray that we can let the chains and barriers of the past drop away. I pray that they are replaced by willing hands and willing hearts reflecting God's grace and mercy. May God bless and keep you and your family and may God continue to bless America.
A Proud American Citizen
P.S. Word up: I will surely crack wise from time to time, it's what I do, it's who I am. After all the hoopla and expectation of your speech, I was hoping that the first words out of your mouth would be "I got nothing" and the media could put an end to their slobbering adoration.
Do you know when it's time to replace your tires? I've been told to stick a penny in the tread and then some other weird thing about Lincoln that I can never remember. So, I've written a little rhyme that might be useful to all of us:
. . .with a Dog & Pony Show. I've rested up from November so now I'll amuse myself by watching the Democrats canniblize one another. Act 1: Roland Burris
Meanwhile, back at Camp Obama: Leon Panetta picked as CIA Chief. This means a kinder, gentler interrogation of people who want to destroy our country. Will hot cocoa, candy and pony rides await terrorists?
As I reflect on 2008, I can say we had a great year: Black folks are happy; Obama was elected. White folks are happy, OJ is in jail. Democrats are happy; George Bush is leaving office. Republicans are happy: Democrats can finally quit saying George Bush stole the election. And all of us are so happy; The election is finally over!
2009 will be even better because immediately after his inauguration, Obama will balance the budget, revive the economy, solve the real estate problem, solve the auto industry problem, solve our gas/alternative energy problem, stop the fires and mudslides in California, ban hurricanes and tornadoes, stop identity theft, reverse global warming, find Osama, solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, get rid of corruption in government and achieve world peace . Then on the 7th day, He will rest.
