HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I love the start of a new year; so many expectations, promises and 365 days to do it bigger and better than the last. What is there not to love? What are some of your hopes for the New Year? Are you geared up for more Michelle Obama Watching as the 2012 election season begins?

To kickoff the New Year I’d like to share Letters to Mrs O. This video was written and produced by MOWatcher Sarah Rutherford, a first-year college student studying journalism. Inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama Sarah aspires to become a State Senator.

“I’ve come to realize that people can be influenced and mobilized through writing, which has inspired me to develop a heart for people and an ear for the issues… I chose to draw parallels between Mrs Obama and myself to reflect the millions of girls near and far that she inspires.”

Thank you Sarah, for sharing your thoughts and vision of an awesome family, President Obama and First Lady Michelle. You helpled me remember and reflect on each point you stated and why I voted for President Obama and why I will vote for him again.
I see the love for your family, just as I see the love in the Obama family. You are right! The First Lady is awesome.

I remember this statment from a clipping a long time ago and it stuck with me and viewing your video it came to mind. I do not remember all of it or who wrote it, so I listed what I rememberd and added a little of my thoughts to it.

I believe in the sun, even though it does't shine
I believe in God, even when He does not speak
I believe in life's transitions, for they are passages through the years
I believe in lists to live by, for everything that really matters
I believe in Sarah Rutherford and First Lady Michelle Obama for you give through learning and creativity; You have a wonderful sense of direction, tenacity and persistence.
Thank you Sarah rutherford & First Lady Michelle Obama, for your giving heart and spirit, for being you and always seeing and finding the best in others.

I believe, we will win again, see you in the White House, First Lady Michelle for the next four years.

Thank you, Sarah for this dynamic presentation.

God help this nation, if we have four more years of the destructive policies of Obama.

Thanks Sarah. When I saw the video Iknew I had to share it with MOWatchers.

@Dee Happy New Year! Thanks for your continued support.

@Sue You really can't be serious. I guess you have to keep repeating it to make yourself believe it,

Aminah Hanan, They say seeing is believing and I am seeing what Obama’s policies are doing to this nation. And even if I didn’t “say it”, it still would be the obvious before my eyes. As a person in the middle class helping to run a small business, I am seeing the destructiveness of the Obama presidency. I am seeing that employers are VERY reluctant to hire new employees, due to Obamacare. I have seen what buying expensive foreign oil is doing to the construction business, to the cost of transportation of goods, etc. I have seen firsthand how President Obama cancelling 31 oil and gas lease sales, delaying thousands of jobs and billions in economic activity. I am seeing how more and more government regulations are stifling businesses. This is just the tip of the iceberg, which is why I come to sites like yours, hoping that people will understand that there is a world out there, that is struggling under the Obama regime, a world that doesn’t receive one cent of government aid, yet working very hard, and having it taken from them in more and more taxes.
