I Had a Dream…

And since I already subscribe to judging others by the content of their character let’s move to something else.

As I drifted off to sleep last night I was thinking about President Obama’s press conference…

With not a dry eye in the press corpse, it went something like this;

Surrounded by children the President began reading their letters…

“It’s supposedly a free country but I recommend there needs to be a limit on spending… Please don’t let politicians waste our money or other people’s money like they do.” Jack L.

The next letter continued with the same tone…

“I am writing to ask you to STOP wasting our money… I am very sad about the children who lost their futures.  So, I thought I would write to you to STOP spending their money before they’ve even earned it.  And STOP borrowing money just to spend it on stupid stuff.”  Lisa W.

After a brief pause the President commented somberly, “These are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people, so what we should be thinking about, is our responsibility to care for them, and shield them from harm, and give them the tools they need to grow up, and do everything that they’re capable of doing.  Not just pursue their own dreams, but to help build this country.  This is our first task as a society, keeping our children safe.  This is how we will be judged.  And their voices should compel us to change.”

Finally the President concluded with a letter from Julio…

Julio had written that he had 15 brothers and sisters and “I know I would not be able to bear the thought of supporting any of them.  I know spending laws have to be passed by Congress, the House and the Senate, but I beg you to try very hard to make sure they have a free market economy where they can support themselves.  Not just for me, but for the whole United States.”  Julio signed the letter “my love and regrets.”

President Obama responded.  “Julio, I will try very hard.”

The children then began running around yelling “Liar, Liar…” and something about the Presidents pants being on fire…

Then I woke up.
