Letter to President Obama

Dear President Obama,
You have insisted that your actions are guided not by ideology but a results-oriented “pragmatism”  But as an unabashed progressive liberal, I don’t buy it.

I do believe that you are intellegent and you think that you have the correct philosophy.  But mainly your administration has been opaque.

You did not stand up for Van Jones, or the agricultural secretary.  You caved in on Afghanistan.  But at least you fired General Mchrystal.  You caved in on Health Care.  You retreated from the Wall Street executives after heavy talk, and then  implemented band aid solutions.  Your support the New York mosque one day and take it all back the next.  You seem to talk out of both sides of your mouth.

I think I have finally figured it out.  You are a smart black man that is always trying to appease the white man.  That must be what you really learned in life.  And you were very successful.

But allow me to set you straight.  You can not appease all of us white people.  At some point you have to take a stand.  Pick a side because like it or not white folks, especially the wealthy ones, can not be appeased.

So I suggest you start standing up for people at the bottom, the elderly, the poor, labor and quit trying to appease wealthy white republicans.

Oh and I am white
