AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA

Postby Freakzilla » 26 May 2011 10:27

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 they never acknowledged it.
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.*

What a lame letter, pretty much just comes up with random insults that don't really make any sense.

People who are scared of him need brain surgery to figure out what's broken. Don't like him and his policies, fine, but scared of him? Come on, childishness.

What the fuck is this all about? I'm sure the Fox News site would appreciate this crap more than us. Go peddle this bullshit to someone who cares.

Lord almighty, what the hell am I doing in the POLITICS! forum?

It's been kind of slow here lately, just thought I give it a little stir.

I'll try to shoot down more of these accusations in this open letter when I can.

I read that and thought of Brian Herbert, for some reason. I wonder if his mind ever rolls over and plays dead?
I bring nothing to the table.

Putting aside the fact that someone already did (see the post by Lundse), why the fuck would you even bother? Everyone here knows (including Freak) that it's bullshit. The only thing that could hurt Obama more right now is if you start supporting him with your prudish sensibilities.

Now, having said that. I can't wait to see your surface understanding on yet another topic.

Then why put up this stupid letter in the first place?

Couldn't find a better way to stir things up?

o_O That runs $18 here normal, $15 if on sale. Natty Ice can go for $12 and Keystone is around $13-14. Bud at the convenience stores runs around $26-$28.

Sorry.

Though receiving the highest possible compliment is no small feat.

Nebby, I'm sorry I overreacted and jumped the gun on this one. Post away.
