In and for the consideration of the American public...

... I do submit before the voting public these words from President Andrew Jackson:

Never for a moment believe that the great body of the citizens of any State or States can deliberately intend to do wrong. They may, under the influence of temporary excitement or misguided opinions, commit mistakes; they may be misled for a time by the suggestions of self-interest; but in a community so enlightened and patriotic as the people of the United States argument will soon make them sensible of their errors, and when convinced they will be ready to repair them.

I apologize for my rash anger with you for these last eight years, and so may you live up to the ideals of President Jackson; faith in you is not what I lack.
