An Open Letter to President Obama

I share this man's sentiments.



By Lou Pritchett

Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

I'm afraid I'd have to respectfully disagree with you, sir. It is my opinion that, while Obama has made some mistakes (common)he has managed to gather the country together so that, for the most part, we are united for the first time in generations. I feel he has a good-will to exercise, and he has brought hope and faith back to many people who had none. I feel he is striving to change the way our government runs, but entrenched politicians do not play fair, and it will be a long battle to reverse the trends that have become so deeply ingrained.
I'm not scared at all.

You are extremely naive if you believe the country is united behind this man. You have not read many letters to the editor in newspapers across America, nor are you aware of the 9.12 groups and tea parties across America. Not to mention the groups on facebook or twitter against Obama. Perhaps you should look at the Rasmussen reports regarding Obama's approval ratings. After researching all that I have given you, I will give you more to research if you are not convinced America is not united behind this man. The sad part is that you in the long run will be harmed by this man's actions because you will not be prepared for upcoming inflation and unemployment.

Try reading sites such as American Thinker, News Max, Michelle Malkin to get the opposing side of view just to inform yourself of what others are thinking.

After that I can give you some good books to read on economics and the constitution.
