Holy shit. First thing I was going to do after reading the thread title and your post was go to snopes. Guess I won't have to.

Hit the nail on the head!

Described the Chicago gangster politician and his back door governing, or lack thereof.

What scares me is that he's 100% correct.

Fantastic letter. Now if only 2000 or 3000 more CEOs, VPs etc. would grow the balls, step up to the plate and write similiar letters and make them public, someone in god's admin. might get a clue.

Won't happen, but I admire this guy.

I think more dems would be scared if they actually look at what he has done and how different his actions are from what he promised in the campaign. He's on the verge of terrifying both sides of the aisle.

I've always wondered how obama could afford to eat at his favorite restaurant in chitown with an avg. ticket of $400 on a setator's pay. Granted, his linebacker, urr wife probably made a pretty good wage, but a $400 dollar meal is steep.

Terrific letter.

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 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.

Lou Pritchett


Here is a version that YOU can pass on to others.

Change "scare" with "terrify", and it's exactly how I feel.

UPDATE! CHUCK NORRIS HAS ADDED A FEW OF HIS OWN!

Why Obama Scares Me, Too
06/16/2009
http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=32310

The New York Times passed on the opportunity to publish a great op-ed letter to President Barack Obama from Lou Pritchett, a former vice president of Procter & Gamble. Pritchett worked for that company for 36 years, until his retirement in 1989.

Confirmed by the Internet watchdog Snopes, here's a sample of what Pritchett wrote:

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 you have never run a company or met a payroll. …

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 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'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



Thank you, Mr. Pritchett, for your love for America, honesty and willingness to risk your reputation by speaking up to this administration.

Now let me add a few of my own fears to yours:

President Obama:

You scare me because so many amazing corporate and American leaders, such as Lou Pritchett, are saying you scare them.

You scare me because after you initiate more government borrowing and bailouts than all presidents combined, you then require Congress to follow a system that is "pay-as-you-go."

You scare me because you really do believe that going into massive amounts of debt can remedy our economy in the long run.

You scare me because your actions don't reflect the federal governmental constraints and fiscally prudent principles of our Founding Fathers and Constitution.

You scare me because you repeatedly still play the blame game with the Bush administration but never blame the Clinton administration, even though it was responsible for the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac subprime fiasco via the proliferation of loans to unqualified borrowers.

You scare me because you buy and run the banking, automobile and (soon) health industries with taxpayers' money but refuse to call it socialism.

You scare me because you claim to be a fighter for minorities and the promises of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness yet do not defend the unborn. What greater minority is there than those in the womb, against whom you already have enacted more pro-abortion laws than anyone since the Roe v. Wade decision?

You scare me because you promise to defend the U.S. against all potential enemies yet pacify those harboring terrorists, fight for the rights of combative detainees, and enable the enemies of Israel.

You scare me because you deny America's Judeo-Christian heritage before other countries of the world, espousing "the promise of a secular nation" during an age in which religious revisionism is on the rise. (Thank God for Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., and others like him, who even now are trying to preserve America's religious history by proposing the passage of a bill that would create "America's Spiritual Heritage Week." Call or write your representative today to support it.)

You scare me because your media team (including the mainstream media) seeks to label as radical, quarantine socially or in some way penalize any opposing conservative voices (such as conservative talk show hosts, news agencies, columnists and actors, such as Jon Voight).

You scare me because your media team does not address or diminish in any way your deification before the world, epitomized by the editor of Newsweek who stated this past week on Chris Matthews' MSNBC show: "In a way, Obama's standing above the country, above the world. He's sort of God." (How much scarier can it get than representative statements like that in a republic that once stood for a balance among political powers and a government "by the people, for the people"?)

Sincerely,

Chuck Norris

America, it's time to awaken from your slumber. Quit looking to the government for answers, and start looking to reputable sources. I recommend starting with Lou Pritchett's 1995 business book, "Stop Paddling & Start Rocking the Boat."

We're approaching the (lower) limits of a democratic republic. I'd like to see the fear translate into action. The current legislature doesn't seem to give a damn about the vote. They're unashamedly marching towards socio-fascism. I don't see one damned thing slowing them down, much less giving them pause.

Record borrowing & deficit spending? Nope.
Legislating outside the bounds of consitutionally provided power? Nope.
Double-digit unemployment? Nope.
Compromising the security & safety of the troops? Nope.

Glorious leader & his disciples & apostles have pretty much found that they can't be stopped, so they're GTG w/ their agenda & the media chorus singing their praises. Plus, a simple majority voted for them, so they've pretty much been given permission to run amok. The constitution? That hasn't really been fully adhered to for at least a couple of generations now, so no big there. They're just pushing the envelope, per their MO. I don't see anything getting in their way. Nothing. They have the majority. Repubs - let's pretend that the GOP even represents a conservative party anymore - is a lame duck minority voice. BFD.

The public is going to find out just how much "free" stuff costs.

I cannot get these points across to my wife, whom didn't vote for him, but says well on the news they said he did this and that and his poll ratings are high and blah blah. She doesn't like him either but says if he controls the media and the country already, we are screwed deal with it.

Replace "scare" with "anger me to the point of screaming at my tv", and you got it.
