Romney would have written back that it's wrong to have two dads, but perfectly acceptable for his great-grandfather to move to Mexico so he could have ten wives.

He's not just a great President, he's a great human being. It's rare to have both at the same time. We've had great Presidents who were shiatty people, shiatty Presidents who were great people, and shiatty Presidents who were shiatty people.

I still would step over my own mother for the chance to have a beer with him. Or, even one of HIS beers. I wonder how good they are...

My parents are conservative Catholics, but they've said that they'd gladly have Obama sit at their dinner table and break bread with them anytime. My dad voted for him in 2008, I don't know if he voted for him this time around, but they certainly don't hate the man, though they may hate the politics.

Well to be fair, a Republican might write back...a self-righteous ignorant "reminder" about how marriage is supposed to be between only a man and a woman and that they're probably "praying" for his soul or some shiat...

I certainly wish more people acted like this. Some people treat Obama like he's the Great Satan. And some of those people are in Congress. You can disagree with his policies without hating him . . .

I can respect people who disagree with Obama yet don't rabidly hate him.

A good rule is to treat others the way you hope they will treat you. Remind your friends at school about this rule if they say something that hurts your feelings.

Ha, awesome! And if they keep bullying you, show them the letter you got from the president, and then pull out a walkie-talkie and start shouting "code RED, code RED! I need a sniper on the roof!"

Okay, now, it is not good to kick a man while he's down like that. The guy just lost a presidential election.

Call me a cynic if you want but I think this is far more to do with having a slick, efficient campaign team who know how to exploit a good PR opportunity when it comes along. Aside from the fact that 5 days before an election the President would have had other things to do besides dictating letters to 10-year-olds, I doubt his campaign would have wanted him putting out anything that wasn't controlled word for word to be exactly on-message. Far more likely someone wrote it for him and it was given to him to approve the sentiment before signing.

Nah, if I were the President, reading 10 letters like that would be the highlight of my day. I don't know if he wrote the sentiment or the whole thing, but I'll bet he really does read and respond to them.

I am so glad that you agree two men can love each other because I have two dads and they love each other, but at school kids think that it's gross and weird, but it really hurts my heart and feelings.... If you were me and you had two dads that loved each other and kids at school teased you about it, what would you do?

Dear kid;

You're ten. Your peers think their own parents kissing each other is gross and weird, and boys and girls at your age are only different in the purely academic sense of future potential. Deal with it, because if your threshold for what constitutes a hurtful insult remains that low you're going to be eaten alive in junior high.

Also, your parents likely don't care what a bunch of kids think of them, either, learn from that.

Sincerely,
The Internet

It's not preposterous at all. It's probably likely. It's also a completely unnecessary statement and a pretty obvious troll. Everyone's Wheaties, you were trying to piss in them.

I don't think whidbey was insulting you because you didn't "fellate" the president. He insulted you because you're an asshole.

It's certainly possible, but no one can work 18 hours a day, and pleasurable breaks are invigorating.

Obama has said that he loves reading those 10 letters a day, and it would take him... what, 2 minutes to dictate a response?

So, Occam's razor and all that.

You're just being a dick. What's more likely, the president fobs off the duty to pet his bald cat and plot evilly, or that the president considers reading and responding to kids for 20 minutes a great break from dealing like butthurt trolls like you.

Shouldn't you be off packing to move to Canada or Austrailia, you know, places you GOPtards have been talking about Galting to? You know, places the GOP thinks are better than America, and yet both are more socialist with more stable robust economies. Funny, you would think you dickholes would say "gee, maybe we should take a look at how they run things...

But no, all you have to offer is hurpydurpy fundamentalist, objectivist, plutocrat sucking, bronze age religious tripe.

When I was a little kid, I wrote a letter to President Reagan. It was the most bullsh*t little kid letter ever.

It was like:

"DEAR MISTAR PRESIDNT,

I WANT TOO MAKE A CLOTHING STOR SO I CAN CELL THINGS AND MAKE LOTS OF MONEY.

LIKE A THOUSAND.

-LITTLE TIMMY,
AGE SEVEN AND A HALF FROM CLEVELAND."

It was sh*t.

The dude or his lackeys sent me one of those nifty 8x10 glossies months later along with a note that I was a great American and a great entrepreneur or some such thing.

I have no idea what happened to it.

The bottom line is that Obama is a Dad with a capital "D". Every picture I've seen of him with kids tells me he was born to be someone's Dad. So, of course, he knows how to comfort a kid having a tough time at school.
