Dear President Obama,
As our Country watched you become the 44th President of The United States, we were excited, happy, in awe and celebrating. What can I even say really? Your speech was uplifting, encouraging and well said. You brought tears to my eyes more than once and I am so happy to know that you will be taking care of my Family to the South.
Even more touched that you have Vice-President Biden by your side. Vice-President Biden has taken wonderful care of my favourite State for so many years, that I know he will do a great job.
Congratulations to both of you, you have a tough road ahead, but it is quite obvious that you are the best men for the job.
Rumur has it, President Obama, that you will make your first official visit to my fair Country very soon. We are thrilled to hear that you have chosen to come here first as we do share the world’s largest undefended border. And for this reason is very important that we remain strong friends.
As I live in the Nation’s Capital, it would be a thrill for me to get out and see the crowds, but with two young children and a bus strike that may possibly still be on, it just might not be possible.
I do have one favour to ask of you, if you don’t mind. While you are here, do you think you can inspire Prime Minister Harper to rally the same kind of enthusiasm for our Country as you have for yours? He is a good leader, but somehow Canadians as a whole, whether they support Prime Minister Harper or not, do not get as enthusiastic. We don’t have parties and galas surrounding the swearing in of the Prime Minister, well, that isn’t true, there are a couple but they aren’t televised and nobody cares if they served the same lunch that was served to Prime Minister King on the same dishes.
But, we cared today. We cared what you ate, what you and your beautiful wife wore, I know that you were served the same lunch as President Lincoln was served and that it was served on his dishes. I know more about your Inauguration today than I do of the last ten here in Canada. And I vote, each and every time!
There were parties galore, in pubs, bars, restaurants and homes. Canadians were partying it up for you President Obama, how can we turn it over so that we are partying it up for our Prime Minister and our Country? If you can impart this wisdom on your visit here, I would be forever grateful.
Thank you for your time, congratulations again,
