I want to express my thanks to you, and to the DailyKos community.  Many readers here, along with 4,000 other friends, submitted comments for me to give to the President.

Me handing over your comments

I want to let you know that I printed them out, and delivered them to him personally, when the President came to Florida a few days ago.

My name recognition is higher than my hand recognition, so you may not recognize my hand, but here it is, giving your comments to President Obama --------->

Your comments were fascinating, and I learned a lot from them.

Thank you again for sharing your thoughts and ideas.  I'm glad that I could help you to speak truth to power.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
