In a relationship or friendship, when you’re upset or disappointed with the girlfriend, boyfriend, friend or spouse etc. do you go tell someone else and hope they tell it to the appropriate person? Or do you say it to someone and hope that they tweet it, blog or put it on Facebook!
No, you tell it directly to the person, right? Well, Mr. President WE the PEOPLE need to hear you speak directly to us from the Oval Office on the issue of the debt ceiling and the potential of a government shutdown.
THE PEOPLE have a right to hear it, directly from you.
As the only person in the country voted for by the entire nation, we need to hear from you. We may not agree with everything, but we have to all agree on this, you are THE PRESIDENT of THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA. We need to hear you speak directly to us, not from the EAST ROOM, not from the PRESS ROOM, but from the one stage only you can, THE OVAL OFFICE.
And to your advisors who may think its a bad idea. Fire them! They are hurting you!
From the OVAL OFFICE you speak from a position of strength. It is not the seat of a mediator. It is the seat where you make the most difficult decisions. It is the seat where the leader of our country sits, whether we agree or not.
When you speak from this seat, the Message is directed to your constituents, The American people.
That’s why we need to hear you explain what is going on with the debt ceiling and why you’re taking the position you are to possibly let the government shutdown because your opposition has a bad plan. We need to hear you, from your office, THE OVAL OFFICE where you can best explain why there’s a looming government shutdown and why the opposition’s plan is not in the best interest of the nation.
As a nation some voted for you, some didn’t. Others didn’t vote at all. But as a nation by a popular vote mandate, WE the people elected YOU.
Therefore, we are in this relationship for the long haul. You were elected and reelected because the majority of the nation trusts you. Now trust us with the message and let us decide. Let us hear you, from The Oval Office.
