This song “Dear MR. President” performed and written by Pink expresses views about the choices that the former president George Bush made during his time in office. For example, one line says “how do you sleep while the rest of us cry.” This means how can you sleep while the rest of us are crying and need help, how can you sleep while so many people need desperate help and you say that America has no problems with the economy.

The purpose of the song is to inform the President at the time George bush to help the people in need and not to turn his back on the problems of America; his country is counting on him.
