President Obama, Please Don't Kill the Whales

Oh, Barack.

You know I love you. You know I cried both when you were elected and when you were sworn in. You know I defend you to my entire conservative family and my conservative friends, and that I appreciate the things you’ve done—over 100—that you did promise to do when office.

And as your supporter, I also forgive you when you forget promises that you made. But when your forget, I’d like you to please listen to us when we try to help you remember. For example, you promised to save whales and to not allow commercial whaling to happen when you were campaigning. Animal activists were so thrilled—I remember you even trying vegan food during your campaign, actually.

But now something has gone wrong. Your new position seems to be in support of commercial whaling, and of the Japanese methods of cruel whale killing as well. Please say it isn’t so!
