Letters to the President

Every day, President Obama reads ten letters from the public in order to stay in tune with America’s issues and concerns. “Letters to the President” is an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the process of how those ten letters make it to the President’s desk from among the tens of thousands of letters, faxes, and e-mails that flood the White House each day.

    I like the fact that he replies to 15-20 mails every week, and that he is a left-handed like me:-)

    i’ll bet they r not from those of us who are truly angery and truly worried about the future of our country.

    I wonder who chooses the letters he reads?

    Why has this Kenyan spent $1 million to protect his original birth certificate to be kept private?

  • JudyC 15 years ago

    Why do you call him a Kenyan SLJAM? He is an American citizen otherwise he would not be President.

    Haha Jeff, did you watch the video?

    Were you worried about the future of our country when Bush gave us huge tax cuts, leading to at least $Trillion in deficits? Or maybe the first bailout, with no strings attached for another $Trillion? Or when Bush led us into war in Iraq for another $Trillion? Or when Bush pushed through Homeland Security and the Patriot Act? Or maybe all his signing statements, renditions, or all those people in Guantanamo forever?

    Now you’re worried…

    I live in Australia and recently sent a letter to our government and one to White House. Guess who replied? It may have been an electronically generated ‘template’ of sorts, but it was obvious someone had taken the time to read it and warrant me with a response on behalf of the President. It’s sad that the Australian government don’t have a system like this.

    I also appreciate the fact he’s a lefty!
    Good on ya Obama!
