If you had two minutes with our new  president on Jan. 21, what one question would you like to ask him? What one thing would you like to tell him?

I would first congratulate the President and then ask that he not govern to the desires of his constituents on the hard left. I would ask him to support our military service members and their families with thoughtful foreign policy and attention to their needs upon return.Mark Bowers,

Issaquah

Are you really going to do everything you promised with regard to change? I would like to tell him to be very careful when out in public. It’s been a long time since we’ve had an assassination but he is history and who knows how that affects some folks.

Michele Forkner,

Issaquah

I would tell him that the people of this country can rise to any occasion/situation and as our leader, he needs to lead with optimism and confidence emphasizing how great we are as a country, not how tough times will be in the future.

Paul Williams,

Issaquah

I would ask how much more of my kid’s future do we need to borrow to fix our problems? I would tell him get us out of Iraq now; get the world to fix Afghanistan; bring all of our soldiers home; and give us all some peace.

How are you and your family today? Have a nice day.

Ken Sessler,

Issaquah

Are you taking your vitamins? (You’re going to need them!) I would tell him to stay true to his integrity, run the country the way he ran the campaign!

Barbara Extract,

Issaquah

What is your plan for peace in the Middle East? Unlike many previous presidents, you need a real bipartisan approach to issues/solutions and appointments.

Jim Harris,

Issaquah

I would ask him to provide proof that he is in fact a U.S. citizen. I would tell him not to turn our country into a socialist society.

Maynard Pillie,

Sammamish

I would ask President Obama for the privilege of praying for him, his family and his administration. I would suggest that he seek God daily for wisdom to govern well.

Don Burnett,

Issaquah

Do you intend to prosecute the previous administration for their treasonous offenses? I am excited for the “Green Revolution” and look forward to a more environmentally friendly (and people friendly) administration.

Kathe Davis-Sandoval,

Edmonds

What is the greatest lesson in life that you have ever learned and how will that lesson affect you as you begin to lead this country? I would like to tell him that my prayers are with him, his staff and his family as he becomes the leader that so many are looking toward for answers and solutions.

Nancy Ward,

Renton

How may I/we best help you in the next three to six months? Government should not necessarily provide services but should facilitate the provision of services — including health care.

Rowan Hinds,
