Alright, so I love Barack Obama and the hope he brings to our nation’s future, but when I read this letter to his daughters, I couldn’t help but question his intensions.
What started out to be, in my mind, a sweet, light-hearted letter to his daughters about his pursuit for the White House, drastically turned into what sounded like a speech from his campaign trail.
Phrases like, “I want all our children to go to schools worthy of their potential-schools that challenge them, inspire them, and instill in them a sense of wonder about the world around them,” and “Sometimes we have to send our young men and women into war and other dangerous situations to protect our country,” sound a little fishy, right?
But the line that, well, crossed the line read, “And I want them to get good jobs: jobs that pay well and give them benefits like health care, jobs that let them spend time with their own kids and retire with dignity.”
Common! Is he still battling Hillary for the democratic ticket or what? Maybe dad’s really do write messages like this to their daughters – although if that’s the case, I must say that my dad is going to receive a heated phone call later tonight.
If you ask me, someone spun this sweet and innocent letter to his daughters into a message about his good intensions for the years to come. I don’t like it.
I love you Barack, but common man!
