All who have ever written on government are unanimous, that among a people generally corrupt, liberty cannot long exist. ~ Edmund Burke
Below is an open letter written by former Proctor & Gamble VP Lou Pritchett to President Obama. This letter was sent to the New York Times. The NYT received it but never printed it.
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 Limbaugh’s, Hannitys, O’Reillys 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.
This letter was sent to the NY Times but never acknowledged. Never printed. Why? You can guess. It’s been vetted by Snopes, if you’d like to check. Supposedly, this letter has received over half a million hits since it hit the net.
I don’t necessarily agree with the whole of it. That said, it hits home on some key points. Obama’s ongoing World Apology Tour sickens me. Obama strikes me as supremely arrogant as well. He’s not fully disclosed his life story either. From what I can gather, he’s more a pawn of Arab Muslim interests than even the Bush Family. I thought that would be a diffuclt level to reach for a non-Bush scion. I believe that I was wrong.
The obvious has occurred here in that every Obama supporter and their lackeys have come out of the woodwork to tell the world that Pritchett is full of hate, a bigot and a racist. Any time the sacred Obama is criticized, these folks come out. One can not make a single commet about Obama that is not full of flattery for fear of his minions and White Guilters coming out of the closet in droves to shout one down by calling all and sundry racists, bigots, etc. How does that aid racial relations?
