Mr. 44th...

What are you dying to say to President Obama if you had a face-to-face meeting with him?


"Hail To The Chief"

  1. Change education in America. It is F'd up!! What you are doing is only making it worse. Get rid of Race to the Top and NCLB!!!

    (Whew, I'm glad I got that off my chest!)

  2. I think Mr 44th is doing an excellent job given the circumstances of his presidency. He walks the tightrope every day. He has accomplished a lot in less than 2 years. What other president has had his energy and his commitment to getting major reforms into law. At the same time the Tea Party gets away with slander and racist comments. He and Michelle are exemplary in their roles and I hope they get four more years!

  3. I guess first I'd say that I appreciate the work he's done so far ... especially in light of the opposition. I would emphasize that I really like the measured and mature way he addresses everything that comes before him ... he never hypes anything ... he's always thoughtful. This is so rare today ... and with all the pressure from the media and the other parties ... it's remarkable that he's kept his composure so long. I like this change ... he's a leader and I admire him. I would also just simply thank him ... can you imagine trying to do what he's doing? Thank you Mr. Obama, THANK YOU. Finally ... I'd tell him that he has a beautiful family and that is his greatest accomplishment.

  4. I'd say the same thing as mom22...lets focus on education, leave Afghanistan, wrap it up in Iraq, let's spend that money on education.

  5. I too think President Obama is doing a great job...Bravo!

    The two things I would like to chat with him about pertain to the Developing World and the Developed World learning from each other:

    1) The US should lead the way with the G-8 & G-20 countries to aid the Developing countries to optimally utilize their abundance of natural resources toward becoming more self-sufficient. Why is it that Guinea, for example, which has over 500 years of bauxite reserves has European companies mining the mineral but mere paying Guinea pennies for it. However, once the bauxite is extracted, shipped to Europe, manufactured into aluminum goods, Guinea (and many other Developing countries) must buy those goods at high prices. Let's help them learn to fish in their own land and not just keep giving them fish.

    Secondly, the US (and other Developed countries) should successfully implement micro-credit programs that the Developing world has been doing well for centuries. Why is it that in the US, it is much harder for a small business/entrepreneur to get a small loan but easier to get a large loan that it doesn't need or can't manage.

    So, Mr. President, let's get the haves to learn from the have nots and the have nots to learn from the haves and all to learn that we are not really that different after all.

    Cheers!!!

  6. I would let him to know that first he's doing a great job. Second, I would encourage him to continue to keep his head up. I truly believe that the solution to the oil spill was in hand all along. I think that BP purposely delayed installing it in ordered to make President Obama look bad.

    Presidentin's hard!

    Seriously: I wonder if he 'likes' his job? I don't mean the 'perks' of being POTUS (who wouldn't love those!) but I mean the actual 'job'?

  8. Mr. President, keep being true to yourself although many are trying to get you to change. You have an agenda that is good for America. As I heard someone describe you, " He is playing chess while the others are playing checkers. He is seeing three or four moves ahead while the others are just trying to see the next move." Your coolness throws them off...I am so proud of you as are so many African Americans in my generation. Keep the faith and stay the course. Have a Blessed Day and a successful presidency for sake of us all.

  9. Hello Mr. President,

    How are you doing? Is this job all its cracked up to be? Has this job changed you in any way? If you had it all to do, would you still want to be President?

    I would like to thank you for taking on a stressful, most times unappreciated and cruel task of running this country. You are doing great with what you were given i.e., deficit, war, bad education system, the health care reform bill (that has so many holes in it I am sure it looked like swiss cheese), and on, and on, and on.

    Enjoy ALL the perks, spend as much time with your family as possible and don't worry about the gray hair you are getting from this job. They have fomulas to cover that up. lol

    I would not want anyone else to represent me. Thank you for all you do.

    When are you going to stop trying to keep your job and go do your job...and start by apologizing to Ms. Sherrod.
