Did You Know That President Obama Receives 65,000 Letters A Week?
And that 10 letters get selected each day for President Obama to read? And that the President personally responds to those 10 selected letters each day?
The letters are sorted by issue, and letters that best represent what is currently going on in the country are the ones selected.
WHAT DO PEOPLE REALLY SAY IN THOSE LETTERS?–So wouldn't it be interesting to see what people say in their letters to the President? Well, get ready for some laughs as you read this outrageous collection of letters to the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, letters that offer a startling inside look at what’s really on the minds of Americans today.
LETTERS FROM BILL CLINTON, STEVEN SPIELBERG, DENNIS RODMAN–From celebrities as diverse as Warren Buffett, Bill Clinton, and Steven Spielberg, to anonymous everyday citizens like the minimum-wage waitress in Oklahoma and a dry cleaner named Al Kayda in Wisconsin, Obama hears it, and gets it, from everyone.
WHAT'S ON THEIR MIND? WELL, JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING–And when you’re the president, absolutely no subject is off-limits. An ex-student in Illinois is drowning in an ocean of debt; a harried housewife in Wyoming has dubious ideas about how to save hard-earned pennies; while a gun owner in Tennessee vigorously defends his right to bear arms.
AN AMUSING SNAPSHOT OF AMERICA IN THE 21ST CENTURY–Even a Harvard classmate re-appears, with a not-so-subtle demand for money. Obama, who’s obviously a very busy man, sometimes answers with a brief innocuous letter of his own.
Echoing another classic of U.S. history, Alexis de Tocqueville’s "Democracy In America", "Obama Confidential" offers a vivid, consistently amusing snapshot of America in the second decade of the 21st century, with hilarious results.
