After 1,460 Letters, Heart-Broken CNN Reporter to Stop Writing President,Lamenting "He Never Called"
Pundit Press ^ | 1/24/13 | Aurelius

Posted on 01/24/2013 6:36:03 AM PST by therightliveswithus

Tom Foreman is a CNN "reporter" who few have heard of. Maybe no one's noticed him because he's been writing letters to President Barack Obama. Often. Every single day, in fact. For four years. That's 1,460 letters...

What precisely was in the letters, on top of the sheer number of them, is particularly disturbing. The joy that this exercise gave Foreman at times is all the more unnerving.

Mr. Foreman often ended letters asking the President to "call when you can," because he knows he's busy. He told him about "a guy [who] started giving [him] a hard time" in junior high. He talked about "Rachel Ray [and] her recipe for Warm Provencal Chicken Salad!"

Mr. Foreman even talked about the President's daughter Malia in a shower...

And to make the final letter ever the more creepy, Mr. Foreman notes near its end:

I don't know if he ever read a single line. All I know is that in almost every missive, I invited the president to give me a call. He never did.

Politics is their religion and Obama their God.

Pathetic and more un-American than imaginable.

If that didn't earn him a visit from the Secret Service then for sure nobody read his silly letters.

Too bad it was not Don Novello who was the author of the Laslo Toth letters to Nixon’s administration. Of course, the GOPers don’t have anyone with that sense of sarcasm on their side to do their bidding.

This article appears to be a hack job on some reporter who posts letters to the president as you or I might post a blog or a Facebook update.

I've glanced at some of these letters. Nothing really creeps me out.

 

Letters to the President #1463: 'Congratulations...at last'

Reporter's Note: President Obama is enjoying his public inauguration today and preparing for four more years of work. I, on the other hand, will be taking a break. The letter below is the same one I sent on the day of his first inauguration when I began this unbroken string of missives. It is also the last one.

Dear Mr. President,

Congratulations! Watching you on that podium today, surrounded by so many hundreds of thousands of Americans I could not help but feel inspired by the miracle of Democracy and the greatness of our nation. I also have a question: Do you have any idea what you’ve gotten yourself into?

I know you are busy today, but call when you can.

Regards,
Tom

Reporter's Note: President Obama’s second inauguration take place today, then tomorrow there will be a big public ceremony.

Dear Mr. President,

Well, we’ve come down to the end. You will raise your hand today and take the oath to continue being President for the next four years, and I’ve already sworn to my wife that I won’t continue writing to you. I’ll send a little note tomorrow, but this is the last time I will send any kind of substantial letter your way.

This all started because you said before you took office the first time that you would appreciate ideas from your fellow Americans. The extraordinary length of this letter writing campaign suggests I took that a tad too seriously, and in any event I think I’d be a little concerned if you’d had time to read them all.

Still, I was thinking back over everything I’ve said and wondering if it could be boiled down to a few key points that might serve you or any president well. So here goes.

1) Listen more than you talk. I realize this is an odd sentiment coming from the guy who wrote 1,463 letters, but I believe it. We learn from others, not from ourselves.

2) Don’t imagine you are the smartest person in the room. Although you seem clever enough, at any given moment in any given place we should all see the wisdom of others.

3) Treat your opponents with dignity and respect, no matter how they treat you. It is not only the hallmark of maturity and intelligence, it is also shrewd politics.

4) Know that people who think you are wrong are not stupid, evil, or shortsighted…and sometimes they are even right.

5) Remember (and this one if unique to presidents): For all the pomp and honor, for all the trappings of success and power, you work for the citizens of America. They do not work for you.

I hope for you, as I would hope for any president, that the next four years go well. I hope you have gained not just experience, but also wisdom. I hope you call one day.

Best of luck.

Regards,
Tom

Letters to the President #1461: 'Saturday preparations'

Reporter's Note: President Obama’s second inauguration is officially tomorrow, and ceremonially on Monday. At which point I will cease writing these letters. I’m sure we’ll both be relieved.

Dear Mr. President,

The weather seems to be a bit more cooperative for the inauguration this time than last. That’s a good thing. I’m sure that you and the other VIPs would be fine either way, but all those folks standing out on the National Mall waiting for the big moment have to endure an awful lot as it is, I’d hate to see them dealing with hypothermia on top of it.

I’m sure it is very exciting for you and your family. Personally if I were a re-elected president, especially in tough economic times, I would opt for a small ceremony in the Oval Office, maybe hold a nice dinner to raise money for charity, and then I’d get back to work. But that’s me. And frankly I imagine even if you wanted things to go that way you’d get a lot of pushback from fundraisers, advisors, and supporters who would be disappointed.

Under the circumstances, my biggest concern is just being able to drive to the office on Monday. We are, as you know, only a couple of blocks from the Capitol so I think I can come in only from the north on one open street. We’ll see. If I get into a bind I’ll give you a call and see if you can issue an executive order to open the way. Ha!

Anyway, I’m in the office working again on this Saturday. Pretty much standard fare with big events like this. If you have a moment, give me a call. Otherwise, the countdown continues: one letter for Sunday, and one for Monday, then that’s it. You’re on your own.

Regards,
Tom

more....

The most interesting thing about stalkers is, they never realize that’s what they’re doing.

Talking about the kid in the shower???? An obsessed stalker with peodophile tendencies? A real loon. Wiki makes no mention of a wife/family. Should really be on a watch list.

If there is anyone who should not have access to firearms, it is this Foreman guy. He seems like the type who would try to kill the president if the president continues to not call him. What a fruitcake. Probably a dangerous fruitcake.

What is referred to as objective reporting by the MSM is in actuality nothing but craven Obama worship and out and out lies. This is just one small example of the mindset of the MSM.

Obama is the Messiah to those on the left. The One they have been waiting for to finally usher in the utopia they have longed for.

This is not an understatement. Many have abandoned the one true God for the feel good promises of instant gratification and relativism.

This man and others like him have turned from God and made Mr. Obama their christ and they love him as such.

His second amendment rights? HELL, strip him of his FIRST amendment rights.

Such a sycophant in the media is dangerous.

“He looks a little creepy:”

I only met him once, when they were interviewing me for the CNN “Ambush at the River of Secrets” documentary. Seemed like a nice fellow.

The televised proceedings weren't the official swearing in ceremony. That occurred as required by the Constitution on 1/20/2013.

The Monday event was as hollow as Obama's bizarre blessing/sign of the cross he made last year (backwards).

One of the reasons we're sending our women to the front line is because of queerish, metrosexuals like this guy. Think this guy or any of his type would be anywhere near the front line? Pfft!

Sadly, this is what the radical Leftists and Feminists have turned a good many of our men into.

I agree. Those final words of advice are good, and would probably peeve Obama since he is/does the opposite. :)

Actually it wasn’t about Malia in the shower. It was about Obama running around in a towel because Malia had used all the hot water.

Just two dads, two regular guys with 40 gallon hot water tanks, dealing with the same teenage stuff.

He sees you when you're sleeping
