In an open letter to the president, Moore congratulates Obama on the recent victory and lays out his vision for the president’s second term — a left-wing wish list, shunning compromise and taking it to the rich.
“This was truly another historic election and I would like to take a few minutes of your time to respectfully ask that your second term not resemble your first term,” Moore writes, noting that he does not want to see Wall Street “darlings” running the economy and wants Obama to “fight” to resolve the issues still on the table.
“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 percent,” Moore writes. “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.”
According to Moore, so far he likes what he has seen — “At your first post-election press conference last Wednesday you were on fire….MORE OF THAT!! PLEASE!!” — but he does not want to see compromise, and instead wants swift moves to the left, including driving the “RICH RIGHT OFF THEIR FISCAL CLIFF.”
