 AN OPEN LETTER TO
 PRESIDENT OBAMA

 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, Hannity’s, 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.

 Lou Pritchett

 Big surprise. Since it hit the internet, however, it has had over
 500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed
 is that good men do nothing. It’s happening right now.*

  1. This guy is full of BS.
    Why is it that the majority of those opposing the global warming hoax are Right Wing Wackos ? ?
    Your wacko views detract from anything that you advocate, except of course with your fellow Right Wing Wackos. Right Wing Wackos believe everything that you say !

    • Jim,

      I would answer your objections to the man’s letter but you don’t cite anything tangible–you just keep mumbling that you hate “Right Wingers.”

      It’s interesting though that you even refer to global warming as a “hoax.” I guess that means you accept it as a hoax as well. I’m glad we can finally find an area of agreement…Thanks for taking the time to comment.

  2. Something you forget to mention in the posting of this letter.

    Mr. Pritchett retired from Procter & Gamble in 1989. He has not worked for the company in 21 years.

    If you are going to try to open the eyes of the people of this country you should do it without “B.S.”

    • Lee,

      Your criticism is fair and the post should have mentioned that Mr. Pritchett is long retired from P&G.

      However, it doesn’t make the content of the post less legitimate. Thanks for correcting the post. All the best…

  3. Facts:
    You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me. True, but why it scares him should be questioned.

    You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you. False, unless he has only listened to Fox News and Limbaugh or other lies as to Obama’s origin and allegiances.

    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. False, Michelle Obama recently said they finished paying off their student loans after Senator Obama wrote his first book, and he did not put his race on the application. No affirmative action.

    You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American. False. He was born 8/4/1961, at Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. In 1967, the family moved to Jakarta because of his stepfather and Obama attended Besuki and St. Francis of Assisi from ages 6-10. In 1971, Obama returned to Honolulu to live with his grandparents. and attended Punahou School from 5th grade until graduation from high school in 1979. So we are looking at 4 out of his 18 formative years abroad

    You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll. True. Only about 5 Presidents have been entrepreneurs, more than half of the presidents began their careers as lawyers and several of them had their own law practice, including Martin Van Buren, Abraham Lincoln and William Taft. Entrepreneurs were:
    -George Washington built a whiskey distillery, sold corn meal and flour globally, in addition to operating nearby commercial fisheries. He inherited the family property and expanded it from 2,000 to 8,000 acres -Success
    -Andrew Johnson built a Tailor shop. Today, visitors still can tour the facility located within the Memorial Building at the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site.- Success
    -Herbert Hoover became a mining engineer and started a consulting firm in 1908. With offices in London, San Francisco, New York, Paris and Petrograd, Hoover helped turn around underperforming mines around the world, then took a share of the profits. -Success
    -Harry Truman started a haberdashery that tailored men’s clothing. The Truman and Jacobson haberdashery in Kansas City in 1919. The store closed in 1922, in the wake of the post-World War I recession. Truman went on to attend law school and become president, and Jacobson eventually opened Westport Menswear. -Failed
    -George W. Bush started the oil and gas company Arbusto Energy–named after the Spanish word for bush–in 1978 and later renamed it Bush Exploration. In 1983, the company merged with Spectrum 7 Energy Corp., and Bush was appointed chairman and CEO. Faced with declining oil prices and decreasing value, Spectrum was later bought by Harken Oil and Gas. -Failed but Bush also purchased a controlling interest in the Texas Rangers. When Tom Hicks purchased the Rangers in 1998, the year the team made the playoffs, Bush banked $14.9 million. -Success, but The next year, he began taking official steps to run for office and eventually destroyed our economy -Failed.

    You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus
    don’t understand it at its core. True that he has no military experience, but many great Presidents did not. George W Bush only served stateside for Air National Guard. FDR brought us out of WWII and the Great Depression with no military experience.

    You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others. -False. Obama has been openly disrespected more than any President to date and has handled it with more class and coolness than should be expected. Not even sure where this comes from aside from conservatives getting upset for Bush being blamed for messing up the economy and creating almost no new jobs during his terms. He created about 375,000 jobs per year. Here’s how it compares to others: http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2009/01/09/bush-on-jobs-the-worst-track-record-on-record/
    Obama is credited with 600,000 created in 2009
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/31/AR2010013102302.html

    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. -False. Are you kidding me? So now the President is a terrorist? William Ayers was the biggest thing they had going in that dept and that was a dud:
    http://www.npr.org/blogs/news/2008/04/ap_factcheck_obamas_connection.html

    You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America ‘ crowd and deliver this message abroad. -False. Obama does not chant “Blame America”, he has said that some of the past policies (particularly those of the Bush Administration) will be changed so that we can have a greater spirit of partnership and cooperation with our allies and restore our image and ties around the world.
    http://edition.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/07/24/obama.words/

    You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector. -False. He wants to stimulate the economy and rebuild America’s strength with a helping hand from Uncle Sam, not a take over.

    You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one. -False. This is already evident. His Health Care has passed already.

    You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves. -False. What do you think the Clean Coal push is, or offshore drilling?

    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. -False. No need to explain, as this is just an opinion based on dislike.

    You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations. -Possibly, if you mean the banks and corporations that received bailouts and were not fulfilling their obligations to taxpayers before giving their top execs huge bonuses.

    You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals. -Partly True, but name a recession that has gone away without spending. It takes money to make money and you have to spend your way out of a recession almost by definition.
    http://taxesandbudget-blog.ncpa.org/can-you-spend-your-way-out-of-recession/

    You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people. -False. He has repeatedly courted Republicans only to be answered by their “just say ‘no’” policy. The GOP policy has been “anything Obama says is wrong” since the campaign. Lead, follow or get out of the way!

    You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient. -False! Obama has always said that he cannot do this alone and asked for all Americans to help. Whether they voted for him or not.

    You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do. -False. Liberals give him a hard time in the media for not being liberal enough while conservatives criticize every thing he does.

    You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh’s, Hannity’s, O’Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view. -False. Obama has not tried to have them silenced, he has asked people not to listen to their lies or hatemongering. How long did these hosts attempt to lie about his birthplace, religion, affiliations and push republicans to just say no to everything he wanted? Opposing views are fine, just don’t spread lies or push people to vote against what is good for them.

    You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing. -False. Huh?

    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 is just dumb. The Dixie Chicks lost their career and Bill Maher lost his first show for speaking against Bush. The biggest threat to our personal privacy, free speech and civil rights was the Patriot Act. That was done under Bush. Oops! I guess it’s wrong to blame him for anything now, huh?

    • Henri,

      FDR didn’t bring us out of the Depression–he extended it by several years. There’s a ton of information to back this up whether you use employment figures or the lack of success of his “New Deal” programs. There are many books available that detail FDR’s failed “New Deal” programs. (FDR’s Folly, The Forgotten Man, etc.)

      Obama is getting hostile treatment from the press? You’ve got to be kidding!–Obama’s been handled with “kid gloves” compared to George W. Bush. He’s had the media covering for him since his presidential campaign started. Or maybe you don’t think the media leans “left.” And you must be the only one outside the administration touting Obama as a job “creator!”

      He’s trashed the private sector economy, taken over the auto industry, financial markets, and health care. And you believe that’s a positive step for America and freedom? Government created the housing market crash and now you want them to have even more authority to fix it? You have a far greater belief in government efficiency than I do. You state that President Obama has “created” 600,000 jobs. Just for the sake of argument, I won’t even quibble with your number–but how many of them are government jobs?

      You don’t think that President Obama has aligned himself with extremists? Let’s see, his mentor in Hawaii was a self-described Marxist (Frank Marshall Davis); he spent 20 years listening to the hate-America sermons of his loony friend Reverend Wright, and he is a friend of terrorist bomber William Ayers. That’s not an extreme past? You say William Ayers was a “dud.” All he did was help found the Weather Underground and bomb public buildings. That’s not radical enough for you?–Oh, and help raise money for his friend Obama.

      You say it’s not Obama’s intention to take over the economy–so he’s accidentally doing it? Why can’t you judge him by his actions instead of his rhetoric? Recessions and downturns happen all the time–they are a normal result of business cycle fluctuations, and that’s even ignoring the fact that this recession was largely a product of government creation. You can call the “stimulus” a helping hand from Uncle Sam if you choose, but many of us see this as creeping socialism and we want no part of it. It’s failed everywhere it’s ever been tried and it is the antithesis of American values.

      And is nationalizing health care also a “helping hand” from Uncle Sam? Many of us also recognize this danger for what it is: The means for government to control the delivery of our health care services and have more power over you and me. This makes an already too-powerful government even more powerful. And if you don’t see it that way, basic economics will show this to be a less efficient and more expensive method of delivering services than allowing a free people to make their own informed choices. Based on his actions a logical person would conclude that Obama is a “statist.” Could you actually call him a “free-market” capitalist based on his handling of the economy?

      Has Obama, in your opinion, shown himself to be a friend of the coal industry employee? Or the farmer? Or the businessperson? And what about offshore oil drilling, you ask? Even before the spill there were so many hoops to jump through and so many restrictions that drilling was not going to happen for quite some time–if ever, and Obama knows that all too well. If you don’t believe that, where is the “limited” oil drilling that Obama promised?

      You also believe that a society must spend its way out of a recession. Those of us who are not Keynesians believe differently. Obama took a recession, threw a bunch of money at it and it failed to produce anything positive–except for Obama, Democrats and their cronies who have further entrenched themselves in power and influence. At minimum, this is an irresponsible waste of taxpayer money. And please tell me what clause in the Constitution grants any President the power to use tax dollars for “stimulus” purposes? On the practical side, do you think that spending over a trillion dollars to create a small number of jobs has been a worthwhile expenditure?

      The rest of your points are silly and I won’t spend much time on them. The Dixie Chicks did not “lose” their career. In fact, I understand they’re as popular as ever. They had a number one record a year or so ago and they play to sell-out crowds when they tour. That doesn’t sound so bad to me–if free individuals don’t like their public statements then they’re free to exercise their right to speak out against them. Same with Bill Maher, who also seems to be doing just fine.

      So you’re afraid of the Patriot Act more than terrorism? I think at last count the Patriot Act has affected fewer than 100 people. There are provisions in the Patriot Act I’m against, but listening to phone calls placed by suspected terrorists to terrorist-supporting countries doesn’t alarm me all that much. Should we do nothing? And isn’t it the “left” in our country that far more often attempts to stifle the free speech of the “right” rather than vice versa. “Leftist” universities are where speech codes are most prevalent yet the media ignores that inconvenient little fact, and instead applies different standards to them. That’s human nature and it’s understandable–but it’s certainly not ethical.

      Henri, what bothers me about Obama (and people like yourself) is that you act as if the President, any President, has the right to “transform” this country based on his own whims. In Obama’s case, he scares some of us more because he clearly doesn’t embrace the founding principles of this country–instead he abhors them. This country honors, and indeed, celebrates the individual–not the collective. Read any of the founding documents: the Declaration, the Constitution, and the Federalist Papers–they are all about limiting government power in order for the individual to thrive. These documents explain how we are to be protected from our government–not saved by it.

      That largely explains our philosophical differences–you believe that the national government can instigate positive reform–in short, be an instrument of positive change. I believe that the free individual is much more efficient in bringing about positive change, and that state and local governments are more effective than the national bureaucracy. Where’s your evidence that all this national government has brought about anything other than misery, debt, and inefficiency? Just what is it that government does well?

      Henri, I’m not for anarchy, I just want the government to stick to those few areas of responsibility specifically granted to them and enumerated in the Constitution. It is my belief that our problems in this country stem mostly from a too-involved government, not an absence of government.

      It comes down to this: President Obama and many politicians hate the Constitution and refuse to follow it because it prevents them from making the kind of sweeping changes that they would like to make. The Constitution, as designed, only allows for slow, incremental change using the amendment process which doesn’t allow for “world-changers” like Obama to radically transform our country without the consent of the people. Doesn’t it disturb you that politicians (and judges) have become our masters instead of the servants they were intended to be?

      What also bothers me is Obama’s complete disregard for the wisdom of the past. He acts as if this is day one of our Republic and he alone has been charged with the responsibility for establishing all the rules and regulations. That’s not his (nor any President’s) role–our rules have been in place for more than two centuries. Furthermore, those principles were established by individuals who were light-years superior to Obama in every way. He has been elected President–not King. Obama has a lot of hubris for a guy with virtually zero accomplishments before taking office. Instead of granting him increased unconstitutional authority; what he actually needs is a strong dose of humility.

      Henri, I greatly appreciate the fact that you took so much of your time to comment despite the fact that we disagree on nearly everything you said regarding Obama, and the direction that America is/should be heading. Perhaps it may still be helpful to clarify our disagreements. Thanks again.

    • So, you blame Bush for the economy like Obama has over and over and over again. Are you aware that it is congress, not the president, that creates budgets and passes bills? When the Democrats took over both houses of congress after Bush’s sixth year, unemployment was low and budget deficits were low. The stock market hit an all time high — not a 52-week or ten-year high — in Bush’s seventh year. With Obama in the Senate, Pelosi and Reed put together and passed the budgets, and Obama voted for them. If Obama was concerned that these budgets would leave the next president with large budget deficits, why did he vote for them rather than warning that the Democratically-controlled congress was spending too much money? He then went on to claim as president that he inherited budget deficits. Inherited from whom? Pelosi, Reed, and Senator Obama?

      The banking and financial crisis occurred with the banking and finance committees controlled by Democrats Dodd and Frank. It was a Democratically-controlled congress that bailed out the banks and GM. It was a Democratically-controlled congress that greatly increased spending in Bush’s 7th and 8th years and in Obama’s 1st and 2nd.

      So, maybe we should go back to the fiscal responsibility of the Clinton administration? The Republican’s controlled both houses of congress during Clinton’s last 6 years. The surpluses occurred at the end of the Clinton administration. Not once did Clinton submit a balanced budget to congress. It was the Republican-controlled congress that gave us the surpluses.

      Obama tarnishes the office of the Presidency by so frequently blaming Bush, whether you think Bush deserves the blame or not.

  4. why is their no proof of his being a citizen?

  5. The main thing that I have to say about Obama is that he is president illegally and I pray to God that once he is out of office that the next president proves it and turns back everything that he has done against the USA. Here is a very intresting document that you might like to read: http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2008/07/atlas-exclusive.html

    • Midnight

      I’m not a birther and it really makes those who oppose “O-nothing” appear to be kooks to most folks. Combating his horrible agenda is what matters. Thanks for writing.

  6. I feel really sorry for Mr. Lou Pritchett because I DON’T BELIEVE HE WROTE THIS!!!!!

    If he did, then all of his accolades, education or upbringing made him sound totally UNEDUCATED! A 5th grader or less wrote this and is using Lou Pritchett’s name.

    Even the NY Times didn’t publish it because they know its a hoax. Not that I don’t agree with whoever wrote this… Obama can be a douche.

    But don’t believe anything you guys read on the internet. Duh!

    • Mike,

      First of all, why would you feel sorry for him if, as you claim, he didn’t write the letter? I guess that really doesn’t matter though because, I’m sorry to burst your bubble Mike–but Lou Pritchett did write the letter. So I guess you can go back to feeling sorry for him…You can read about it here

  7. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_Obama

    This guy apparently has a gift for skewering facts. I mention only that “during his formative years…” he did in fact live in Hawaii, a state of the U.S. That was after he was ten years old and returned from Indonesia where he attended a Catholic school. According to Pritchett, his “formative years were from one day to ten years. This guy sounds like a tea party member who is full of hate for this “strange person who, legally and legitamly, became our president. He is one of the ” I just can’t accept it” crowd, seems to me! Do some research if you dare. I see some are still clinging to the “illegal” theory. Oh, well. It takes alll kinds

    • annanonon,

      I never heard of Pritchett but I do agree with much of what he says in the letter. I don’t believe that Obama is an “illegal” president; he’s just an awful president–perhaps the worst ever. That’s because the policies he advocates are a disaster and his worldview is dangerous for our country.

      You’re the one who seems to be filled with hate–not the Tea Party. People in the Tea Party movement simply want our politicians to be fiscally responsible and they want a return to constitutional government. How horrible! They don’t hate President Obama, they hate what he’s doing to the country and they want to see him defeated. Amen to that…

  8. so sad,but so True..Wake up America..Ron Paul is are last chance for Freedom and the American way…

  9. Robert Cannon

    Get over it! People have a problem with him because he is Black and intelligent. He will serve another term! People need to wake up and get over race. The United States is no longer predominately white so things will never be the way they were! Change has and will continue to come! Keep Moving Forward!!!

    • Robert Cannon,

      Most Americans object to Obama based on his horrible policies, which have nothing to do with the fact that he’s (half) Black. You’re the one who thinks in terms of his race. There are countless reasons why Obama is a lousy president–and none of them have anything to do with his race. In short, the man is a divisive ideologue. Americans in general want our country to prosper and don’t think of the U.S. as a bunch of separate group identities such as rich or poor, black or white, upper class or middle class. However Obama does see America through these prisms, and he’s constantly playing the class warfare card, even though that is not the American way.

      Unparalleled freedom is what makes this country so different and so special from any country that came before. Individual freedom allows any person the opportunity to work hard and improve his lot in life regardless of what situation he or she is born into. But no one is guaranteed success–just the opportunity to strive for it. This “land of opportunity” has enabled America to unleash economic activity never before seen on Earth. However, our freedom is under attack–and we’re presently surrendering it bit by bit, and as freedom erodes, so does our ability to make our own decisions in life. But don’t worry, our politicians and government bureaucrats will happily make them for us. As for us moving “forward,” it’s fitting that the Obama campaign would choose a Communist motto for their campaign slogan.
