That the statement attributed to him seems to be a fraud.
Letterman's monologue Thursday night is at

Blogger conveniently omits any reference to where this came from.
Another one of those
IT CAME TO ME IN AN EMAIL!!!

This is where it came from:

Claim: Essay by comedian Jay Leno urges Americans to focus on the positive.

Status: False.

Collected via e-mail, March 2007


Variations:

# In early 2008 the following preface was added to the example quoted above:
Jay Leno on President Bush (Surprising)

Jay Leno wrote this; it's the Jay Leno we don't often see....


# In mid-2008 the attribution changed from Jay Leno to David Letterman:
David Letterman wrote this; it's the David we don't often see....

You lost ditso.
Don't make it worse with tons of divisive crap
designed to make many Americans look bad.
Your timing really stinks.

Every three or four months somebody posts something that is deceptive claiming to cite somebody who never said it. Before there were right wing blathers attributed to Paul Harvey, then Jay Leno. This one isn't true either.

People may relate to the essay and that would be fine. But why slander Letterman, Harvey, Leno or anyone else to make the point? All that does is make somebody look like a bullshitter or gullible. Especially, gullible as this stuff has often been floating the Internet around for years.
