What Should Obama Say In His Speech Next Week?

For some reason, the Obama 2012 campaign has decided that I am a friend and they have asked me to help with His reelection campaign.  They just don't get it.  Regardless of how obnoxious, sarcastic, and downright cutting my remarks are, they continue to treat me like one of their allies.

Anyway, today on Facebook is a post inviting people to suggest what we think He should say in His speech to the joint session of Congress next week.  I happily responded.  I thought Richard Nixon had some pretty good speeches so I "borrowed" a few of his words for "The One." 



"My Fellow Americans,

In the past few days it has become evident to me that I no longer have a strong enough political base in the Congress to justify continuing my presidency.  

With the disappearance of that base, I now believe that there is no longer a need for this process to be prolonged.

I would have preferred to carry through to the finish whatever the personal agony it would have involved, and my family unanimously urged me to do so. But the interest of the Nation must always come before any personal considerations.

From the discussions I have had with Congressional and other leaders, I have concluded that I might not have the support of the Congress that I would consider necessary to back the very difficult decisions and carry out the duties of this office in the way the interests of the Nation would require.

I have never been a quitter. To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as President, I must put the interest of America first.  America needs a full-time President and a full-time Congress, particularly at this time with problems we face at home and abroad.

To continue to fight through the months ahead would almost totally absorb the time and attention of both the President and the Congress in a period when our entire focus should be on the great issues of peace abroad and prosperity without inflation at home.

Therefore, I shall resign the Presidency effective at noon tomorrow."

What do you think?

I think he should take a different approach. I think he should promise that if we elect a democratic congress he will use them to fix the nation to the fullest extent of the law.

@John,

Didn't He have a democratic congress last year? He didn't fix it then. Somehow I can't see him doing it if we give Him a second chance. But it makes for a nice fairy tale.

Yes, he tried to compromise and cooperate with a party filled with insane people. He now knows they are insane, and I assume he may have learned his lesson.
