Dear President Obama:
Congratulations on becoming the President of the United States of America!
In my wildest dreams I cannot figure out why anyone would want to be President at a time like this, but your intelligent voice of reason has given me confidence that you are the right man for the job - and with that I would like to wish you the very best of luck.
You're an amazing man who has taken an impossible journey and I'm humbled by your achievements. At this very moment barriers are evaporating and hope is being given to the many less fortunate children of this country who otherwise would never be able to imagine the possibility of reaching this kind of success.
Please know that I, along with millions of other Americans, have given our complete trust in your ability to lead this great nation out of war and financial crisis, invigorate energy innovation, restore the respect of the United States to the rest of the world, and cure cancer*. I know that's a mighty tall order but you said you could do it, and we're holding you to it.
So have at it Mr. Obama. You've got exactly 77 days to get your house in order and take command of this giant unwieldy ship. The world is watching and you are at the helm.
And with that I would like to again wish you good luck and God bless.
Oh, and that "I voted for change" thing I mentioned above? That's my vote of confidence that you'll make sure I get some back from my paycheck. Thanks, I appreciate that.
* Ok, I know you didn't say the cancer thing, but I figured I'd toss that in there while you were on a roll, you know - just in case.
