How are you? I am doing alright, just listening to you address congress. I admit, you are a remarkable orator. Your powerful way with words (well, your writer's powerful way with words) is just what the nation needs to rally together and become united. It is true that without that unity we will not defeat our economic crisis and become, once again, a nation of true predominance. However, Barack, I find that you are talking the talk, but have yet to walk to walk. You use the power of your words to frighten the abstract concepts of homeland security, economic recession, health care, and education. I want you to harness the power of action to fight for or against these things. You have few concrete plans of action. Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate the efforts of your stimulus bill (though I don't think it's going to work) and your support of education, both in regards to reform and expansion. These are concrete plans of action, but what about everything else you've mentioned? You're stimulating the economy now, but how are your going to alter it for the better in the long run. What occurs when all of the new roads are built and those millions of Americans lose their jobs again? Where is your plan to pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan? Fixing credit, beginning lending and finding sources of renewable energy sound like a great ideas, but how are you going to carry all of those out. Show me a plan that works, Barack, and then you will have my unbridled support.
Please do not misunderstand my words. I am excited for your presidency, Barack. You have so much potentional, and I adore your enthusiastic and fresh approach to policy. I do not agree with you on everything. In fact there are a few key points I disagree with you on, but your intense desire to act is what gives me hope. Please carry out that desire and start proposing policy. PLEASE.
Thank you so much for your dedication and effort to bettering the nation. How I felt about you before the election is now a mute point. You are our president despite that opinion, and as long as you act swiftly, justly and in the country's best interest you will have my support. Do not let me down.

p.s. You might want to cut back on the pomp and circumstance... it makes it seem like you're trying to cover up the fact that you have nothing concrete to say.
p.p.s. Oh, and tell Nancy Pelosi to SIT THE CRAP DOWN! Jumping up every time an inkling of support is offered nullifies the honor in the action. She's more like an excited puppy than the Speaker of the House. That goes for the rest of the senate too!
