Dear President Obama,
I bet you forgot me. Well, I almost forgot you. A few years ago I broke up with you over the public option-. Then I decided to take you back then well you know how girls are being a Dad of teenage girls.
Plus you changed. You got yourself locked up in Washington. That “yes we can” and “change we can believe in “ was gone you weren’t changing anything I could see in spite of all those campaign promises. Like Michele said once -your cute- but not that cute.
But something hit me again – It was health care. I wanted it to change and finally – you did too. And damn if suddenly you weren’t sounding again like your old self, pounding the streets/aka runways with air force one, making stump speeches from your big shiny plane and demanding people back health reform with that fiery passionate old “yes we can” self- I well -I fell in love with.
I love that community organizer in you and he came out again loud and clear.
You did it. You came out strong for what you believed in and let yourself out of that drafty old White House and stumped for change and you passed the health reform bill.
But then you sounded like your bad old self again. No:” yes we can” and not confronting immigration before the election. Then your party lost big time and the old yes we can actually came back. Then the new ” I will do it ” poured out. You passed those executive actions on Cuba, immigration and you proved we can and if not ” I will”.
Then you proposed free tuition for community colleges, capitol gains increase to chip away at that greedy 1% and fight for the middle class. Your approval rating skyrocketed up to 50% from an all time low.
You have created change I can believe in-
I’m on your side and you are on mine- or well the people’ side again. I’ll give you a 100% rating and good luck tonight.
Keep up the really great work.
