I guess I should start by apologizing to you. I'm sorry for disparaging you with such relish and vigor in our recent past. For your second term, I'm gonna try to be a better citizen. Since I'm almost certain you read my blog (you don't? shut up, yes you do), I no longer want to be considered part of the problem in your estimation. Going forward I will try to be a part of the solution!
I've determined that publicly criticizing every little thing you do as a sitting president is unproductive. Looking around I've observed many citizens who are simply moving on with their lives, showing (quiet) respectful support of your position as president even if they didn't vote for you. I think if I try really hard, I can do that too. I know this sounds like snark cuz I have tended to operate on my immature side, but I mean it.
From now on I will try taking your presidency so personal. It's not like I made sexual advances and was rebuffed by you or anything. Not like you stole my puppy and drowned it when we were kids or something. Reading my blog one might think so. I'm guilty of making fun of your ears and your slim bod. Sorry about all that. It all stops today.
I don't expect to agree with most of your decisions for our country. But business is business and I am gonna make a better effort to suck it up and stop trash-talking the boss. Sorry I called you a shithead in my last post. That was my pain talking.
Yes, I was truly devastated by your win and that kind of knowledge can't be an easy pill for you to swallow as an election winner. Knowing so many people voted against you? Knowing some of us even cried? Yeah, that's not scrapbook worthy material for you or your peeps. And I'm sure in two or three years there will be another countdown widget in your honor on my blog. I'm human Mr. President. Please try not to hold that against me.
If it's any consolation, I offer you this full disclosure. I never really hated you. That was a defense mechanism fib. I said it often from a rejected place. As an American, I saw a number of your decisions as an attack on my beliefs. Oh you know, the Constitution, my Amendment rights, my freedoms, little things like that.
Think of it this way. Like if someone promised to harm your family by stealing stuff they cherished. Or promised to break locks on all the doors of your home so your family would be vulnerable and unprotected. You know? Okay, maybe you don't see it the way I see it. So that's why I'm gonna agree disagree to disagree with you, Mr. President. From here on in, I respectfully accept and stand in support of your presidency.
Am I all of a sudden in love with you? No offense, but no. Do I even like you? Oh geez, sorry but that's another no. And yet, take heart Mr. President, I DO have love for you. I want to live on the right side of God. When I pray for our country, I want to be heard minus contradictions and with as pure a heart as I can muster.
I wish you the best of luck in your performance as president over the next four years. May God bless us all.
P.S. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
