“The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal.

After all, serfs don't need the troubles that freedoms that they can't fully understand.

So here is my Message:
I thank Obama because ...
I get to be on the opposite side this time, and show you the respect, understanding and patience your followers showed your predecessor. Only you have already earned it. Ours will be thoughtfull and accurate. Not hate filled and irrational.
