On New U.S. Citizens’ Paperwork Barack Obama Is Still President

An administrative gaffe led to the distribution of some 200 congratulatory letters that identify Obama as the U.S. president to new citizens.

Aisha Sultan, who is a columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, shared a photo of her British-born husband’s congratulatory letter, and it has been liked more than 175,000 times.

“Dear Fellow American:
I am honored to congratulate you on becoming a citizen of the United States of America. You represent the promise of the American Dream, and because of your determination, this great Nation is now your Nation.
You have sworn a solemn oath to this country, and you share in its privileges and responsibilities. Our democratic principles and liberties are yours to uphold through active and engaged participation. I encourage you to be involved in your community and to promote the values that guide us as Americans: hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism.
Since our founding, generations of immigrants have come to this country full of hope for a brighter future, and they have made sacrifices in order to pass that legacy on to their children and grandchildren. This is the price and the promise of citizenship. You are now part of this precious history, and you serve as an inspiration to those who will come after you.
We embrace you as a new citizen of our land, and we welcome you to the American family.”
And it is indeed signed by former President Obama.
Of course, twitter loved it. Will Consuegra Esq @Will_Consuegra replied, “Maybe he still is President and Ashton Kutcher is about to jump out and punk us all.”
Ashton, please. Tell us Obama is still President.
