Dear Mr. President
answering campaign email can sometimes get deep
o as a “subscriber” on the Barack Obama FaceBook page I get some fairlymundane updates. Standard re-election stuff that is a prerequisite to the grindof winning the “hearts and minds”.Stuff like this…“
Here at President Obama's campaign headquarters, wereceive hundreds of letters (and photos
) from supporterseach week. Vicki wrote in response to an email thankingher for her support.”
I thought this was funny, because a while back I DID respond to an emailfrom the Obama campaign entitled “Frustrated“.…and so….

Dear Mr. President,It cannot be easy to deal with a side of the American electorate that hatesyou, your skin color and the fact that a man of your skin color is thePresident of the United States of America.But you are, sir.And while leadership demands making sure government functions throughcompromise, it looks as though you have forgotten that
wereoverwhelmingly elected to direct, motivate and energize the rest of us. Itlooks as if you've forgotten that we chose you to lead.
