Obama wrote a personal letter to North Korea's Kim Jong Il
Washington Post ^ | Dec 15, 2009 | Glenn Kessler

Posted on 12/15/2009 8:52:32 PM PST by rdl6989

President Obama has written a personal letter to North Korean leader Kim Jong Il that was delivered by the administration's special envoy for North Korea during a visit to Pyongyang last week.

The existence of the letter has been closely held, with the administration insisting to its partners in disarmament talks with North Korea that it not be publicly discussed. State Department and White House officials confirmed this week that envoy Stephen W. Bosworth delivered a letter from Obama for Kim, but they declined to describe its contents.

"We do not comment on private diplomatic correspondence," said White House National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer.

Did he send it in a perfumed envelope? Was there a kiss mark on the flap?

Maybe Barry told Kim how much he idolizes him.

Starve your people while blackmailing the United States? You get a personal, handwritten letter!

Be a #1 ally that has fought wars with you, stood by your side for nearly a century? You get some old DVD’s!

Boy, I sure am glad Obama is going to improve our standing in the world. /s

Clinton and Bush wrote to Kim much later in their presidencies after negotiations had concluded.

But not Obama, he's The One. He'll do it his way. Capitulation. Show weakness right from the start. Brilliant.

This is what the North Korean dictators have sought for 60 years. One to one legitimacy with the President of the United States of America.

The Obammunist gave it to his comrade.

""We do not comment on private diplomatic correspondence,"

Then we will F.O.I.A. your a*ses, Mr. Smartypants Ivy League grad State Department bottom feeder, Mr. Mike Hammer. You had better be aware that my tax money pays for the stationary to have the letter from Obama to Kim on.

Now, come clean! What is being offered as an incentive?

White House
December 25, 2009

Dear Kimmy,

How are you ? We are fine here.

Are you having a good weekend? We are just hanging around the house today ourselves. Not doing much. Not much happening.

Michelle says to say Hi and she cant wait to come and see you. Wait she said she would like to come but she has to go to Japan while I come there. Something about shopping... scratch that...cultural exchange with the Japanese women.

Well Kimmy, I cant wait to visit you again and eat Kumchi. Your wife is a good cook. Maybe you could bring her next time you come and see us. She could teach Michelle...err..

Didd i til yo tat micelee sey hje

Dearest Kimmy,

How I long your embrace. How I REALLY long your approval numbers. Hubba! Hubba!

100% approval for 15 straight years is no small feat!! Congrats!

Let me be clear. Someday America will come to appreciate Barack Hussein Obama in the same way that North Korea does for you.

Do you like me? Circle Y or N.

I know you are ronry, and I promise one day real soon, that you and I will meet in Washington DC and I’ll let you stay in the Lincoln bedroom, and we’ll ship off Michelle My Belle to Oprah’s place for a few days - and then you and I can jump on the bed and MAYBE have a pillowfight, I don’t know yet, we’ll just have to see how the night goes, I’ll send for Ben and have him make it rain on us (with newly printed Benjamins of course).

Do you like Smores? I do if you do. See you real soon.

Sincerely,
Your Sugar Bear

Doesn’t the (extremely short) length of Kim Jong Mentally Ill’s fingers indicate something about the magnitude of his executive package?

Dear Kimbo,

Things are not going so well over here. At this point in my administration, I thought we’d be laughing at unicorns while it rained Skittles from the sky. Our vision of utopia is being held back by those evil Republicans.

Can you help me out somehow by creating some crisis? I need to look tough, and I promise to make it worth your while.

I was walking by someone’s office today, and a country song was on - it reminded me of you:

Do you love me? Do you want to be my friend? If you do, well then don’t be afraid to take me by the hand if you want to...I think this is how love goes - Check YES or NO.

Bye, sweetie...call me on the red phone sometime; the White House gets kind of lonely, homey!

Hugs and Kisses,

Wham Bam!

P.S. Can you believe the price of arugula?

Dear Leader Kim:

Please let me know your techniques for suppressing the population during a currency riot.

I may need that info soon!

Yours,

I hope so. It would be nice to have her back online.

Kim Jong-il knows that Zero is weak and feels he can do whatever he likes.
