Memo to Maureen Dowd: Presidents Lead

To the Editor:

Thank you Maureen Dowd for helping me crystalize my inchoate thoughts when I heard President Obama intone the words that we, his supporters, “were the change” that won the election four years ago. (NY Times, Op Ed, 9/9/2012).

How wrong-headed we were to expect that a mere President could provide the forceful leadership and bold initiatives necessary to change the course of our country. Perhaps, we would have exerted ourselves more, had he mobilized us for the ensuing political struggles.
