The Right have made light of your qualifications to be President. Please know that you are at a crucial time in our history. Sir, you are the nexus between old America and old ways of governing, and a bright and flourishing new America. You don’t have to be told, “It’s jobs that will save us.” You know that your success at creating jobs or the climate for them will define your presidency. I know you will marshal great innovators and will develop a winning strategy to defeat our flagging economy.
Sir, do you or someone in your administration watch the talk shows on MSNBC? I watch most of them daily and respect the smart thinkers there who offer, what seems to me, great advice on the economy, governing, dealing with the Tea Party, etc. Now that money is so cheap for governments to borrow, I suggest again that you consider what may seem a little radical: A Works Progress Administration (WPA) for the 21st Century. You can use your EXECUTIVE POWER to create millions of jobs this way. People who bring home a paycheck go out and spend and create demand. Demand leads to hiring more workers. And, “Bob’s your uncle,” you have a bustling economy. Yes, to be radical takes courage. But, a missed opportunity would be death to our dominance in the world. Please consult your brain-trust with this idea.
“President Barack Obama on Monday defended the nation’s fiscal health and decried Washington partisanship, in his first public remarks since Standard and Poor’s downgraded the nation’s top-notch triple-A credit rating.
“We didn’t need a ratings agency to tell us that we need a balanced, long-term approach to deficit reduction,” Obama said, asserting that “we’ve always been and always will be a triple-A country.”
He said the real problem is “a lack of political will in Washington” and that the nation’s challenge is “the need to tackle our deficits over the long-term.”

Of course, <<ça va sans dire>> that your re-election is hinged upon your being the successful nexus that brings paychecks to our millions of unemployed. Let that success be to the glory of God and the Democratic Party. God chose you and gave you the challenge ‘to change the way Washington does business.’ Although you are quiet, you have the strength and resolve to try to realize the “change” you promised. You have the country behind you. The people are going sour on the Tea Party. Let’s hijack their progressive spirit, make it truly democratic and make America AMERICA AGAIN! God bless you with SUCCESS AS A PROGRESSIVE PRESIDENT!
