Dear President Obama:

Happy Birthday! And may you live to be see many, many more. I have followed your work with pride since you were given this very difficult job by the American people. I know that it has not been easy because, let me put it bluntly, many want you to fail. Yours is a very tough job that requires the patience of the Biblical Job, the intestinal fortitude of Hercules, and the courage of Sampson. But no matter what your detractors have said and continue saying you have done a first rate job since you took up residence in the White House.

I know that the nagging distractions can be sometimes overwhelming. But don't despair when they throw stones at you remember to dig deep into your African past and tap into the strength of a people kidnapped from their homes, separated from family, beaten, brutalized and treated like beasts of burden (today if someone treated an animal the way they treated your African ancestors the law and special interest groups would take to the streets in protest.) and still a continue to overcome many obstacles..

In your two plus years as President of the United States you have had to fend off the constant attacks by an organized group of Republicans and their minions who quite frankly hate your guts. You are not going to change this leopard so don't even try. You know that as you celebrate your 49 years young that Fox 5 and its entire cast of pseudo-journalists will never be in your corner. So do the next best thing ignore them. And move on with your progressive domestic agenda for putting Americans back to work, rebuilding and repairing our infrastructure and pioneer legislation to save our planet.
