Early Obama Letter Confirms Inability to Write
A Thank You Letter To Barack Obama
The opportunity that we the American people have given you to help us confront the challenges facing us today is an enormous one. An enormous opportunity and an enormous task, but one that I believe you have the courage and skill needed to lead us to recovery. We do not ask you to solve every problem, but that you honestly strive, along with the people you have chosen to guide and help you, to make our country and others around the world a place where we can meet in friendship and mutually solve the issues that face us. I pray that God will guide you in your task and that our nation will come together to work as one body to aid you in your task Sincerely, Betsy Allen.
Did Obama Write ‘We’re Just Temporary Occupants’ to Trump in Transition Letter?
In his address to Congress, President Barack Obama quoted a letter that Senator Ted Kennedy wrote him after he learned he was soon to die. I wanted to write a few final words to you to express my gratitude for your repeated personal kindnesses to me — and one last time, to salute your leadership in giving our country back its future and its truth. On a personal level, you and Michelle reached out to Vicki, to our family and me in so many different ways. You helped to make these difficult months a happy time in my life. When I thought of all the years, all the battles, and all the memories of my long public life, I felt confident in these closing days that while I will not be there when it happens, you will be the President who at long last signs into law the health care reform that is the great unfinished business of our society.
I feel driven to let you know why I am writing it. One reason is it may help gather other supporters; another is that this is one of those singular moments that nations ignore at their peril. I will not rehearse the multiple crises facing us, but of one thing I am certain: this opportunity for a national evolution even revolution will not come again soon, and I am convinced you are the person to capture it. May I describe to you my thoughts?
