Letters to the President: #671 'Well, what do you know?'

Reporter's Note: As cities go, Washington is kind of like a teenager - absolutely convinced that everyone else is looking at it. As I found before I wrote today’s letter, however, that’s not necessarily the case.

Dear Mr. President,

I read an article about how many Americans realize the Republicans won control of the House in this last election, and good new for you, it’s not that many! Apparently while a lot of people know the Repubs won something, slightly more than half are not sure what it was. Could have been a kitchenette, a trip to the Bahamas, or an iPad for all they know.

Like I said, that sounds like good news for you.
