An Open Letter to President Obama By Michael Moore

Une lettre ouverte de Michael Moore à Obama 2.0 dans laquelle il lui rappelle ce pourquoi il a été élu – mettre en oeuvre les changements profonds qui amélioreront la vie des 99% -, lui conseille de ne pas refaire les mêmes erreurs que la fois précédente (par exemple aller chercher Goldman Sachs et consort pour gérer l’économie) et lui fait 10 suggestions pour faire son boulot correctement.

I know it is not in your nature to be aggressive or confrontational. But, please, Barack – DO NOT listen to the pundits who are telling you to make the « grand compromise » or move to the « center » (FYI – you’re already there). Your fellow citizens have spoken and we have rejected the crazed ideology of this Republican Party and we insist that you forcefully proceed in bringing about profound change that will improve the lives of the 99%. We’re done hoping. We want real change. And, if we can’t get it in the second term of a great and good man like you, then really – what’s the use? Why are we even bothering? Yes, we’re that discouraged and disenchanted.

At your first post-election press conference last Wednesday you were on fire. The way you went all « Taxi Driver » on McCain and company (« You talkin’ to me? ») was so brilliant and breathtaking I had to play it back a dozen times just to maintain the contact high. Jesus, that look – for a second I thought laser beams would be shooting out of your eyes! MORE OF THAT!! PLEASE!!

In the weeks after your first election you celebrated by hiring the Goldman Sachs boys and Wall Street darlings to run our economy. Talk about a buzzkill that I never fully recovered from. Please – not this time. This time take a stand for all the rest of us – and if you do, tens of millions of us will not only have your back, we will swoop down on Congress in a force so large they won’t know what hit them (that’s right, McConnell – you’re on the retirement list we’ve put together for 2014).

BUT – first you have to do the job we elected you to do. You have to take your massive 126-electoral vote margin and just go for it.
