Letters to the President: #968 'Fear of numbers'

Reporter's Note: President Obama's latest approval rating is...well, awful. Thank goodness he has my daily letters to cheer him.

Dear Mr. President,

I am not a doctor, although I have seen some on TV. None the less, it occurs to me that you might have a rare illness. You maybe suffering from arithmophobia, or in lay terms, a fear of numbers.

It would stand to reason, because every number out there seems to be hard against you. I looked at your last approval ratings and could only shake my head. Granted, people still think less of Congress but that is not much comfort, I suspect.

Other troubling numbers? Well, of course there is unemployment. And housing values. And the deficit. And the number of Americans living in poverty. All bad and generally getting worse.

I can just imagine Biden walking in with a fresh bucket of numbers each morning, and you just sighing. "Ok, Joe. Dump them in the corner. We'll look them over later."

Come to think of it, maybe it's not such a fear as it is a fatigue over numbers.

Still, I suppose you can do nothing but keep working the calculator and hoping, because for the moment I fear those bad numbers are going to keep coming. In fact, I think you can count on it. Ha! Just kidding. Good luck.

Call if you can.
