This is intended to be an open letter to you, Barack Obama.
I will dispense with the usual salutatory "Dear Mr. blah blah" because to address you as same would mean that I accept you as my president, which I cannot and do not.
I know my words will offend those for whom the color of your skin means more than the quality of your job performance, but I place a high premium on the performance of the man who occupies the position you do -- a performance that ought to be based on leadership, loyalty to America, and adherence to the Constitution of the United States.
I view you, in the absence of any of those qualities, as a seat-holder for an American leader who embodies those qualities and who has respect for We the People of this great nation, which you are doing your best to defile.
