"Today, the president is being attacked as if he'd promised that our problems would wash off in the morning. He never did. It's time for Americans to realize that governing is hard work, and that a president can't just wave a magic wand and fix everything."
This is a "letter to the editor" that has been showing up in numerous newpapers around the country. Here is a quote from Hot Air:
"Editors all over the country found Light’s message strangely compelling. It was reprinted at The Politico; the Philadelphia Daily News; the San Francisco Examiner; the Washington Times; and a USA Today blog. In addition, the letter has appeared at literally dozens of small-town papers across the country, with names like the Los Banos Enterprise, the North Adams Transcript, and the Danbury News-Times."
Hot Air's report on this is accompanied by a picture of President Obama's top advisor, David Axelrod. (I wonder why.) You remember him-the same guy that used to send e-mails from the White House to millions of every-day Joes like me-until somebody blew the whistle.
"Olly Olly Oxenfree"- "Ellie Ellie Axelrod"
So how is it that newspapers all over the country are getting this same message from one "Ellie Light" claiming to be a local resident and defending our president?
