Reporter's Note: I write to the president every day, and he never answers.
The Dear Mr. President,
Well, here I've gone and done it again: nearly forgot to write! As my mother used to say (and still does from time to time) "Tom, you'd forget your head if it wasn't attached."
She's a riot.
It's late, so I won't say much.
Have you been following all these protestors gathering in various cities? I'm not sure what to make of them, because I'm not sure what they want.
Actually, I'm not sure they know either. Seems to be a lot of "we're against the way things are" but not a lot of "here is what we'd like to see instead."
I think that always weakens any group...political, social, religious, whatever. It's all well and good to be against...but at some point you have to be for.
Probably worth bearing in mind in your re-election bid too, as you take on the GOP.
Got to go. Manana.
