- Buyers Remorse:Â People are scared to the death of the Obama administration, be they once-friendly parties or not. Consider the anonymity theme in the following articles, all of recent vintage and printed in mainstream periodicals.Â Start here>>
DEAR PRESIDENT OBAMA: YOU SCARE ME.
The following Â letter was written by Lou Pritchett, author of “Stop Paddling and StartÂ Rocking the Boat.”Â He is also a well-known speaker, savvy businessman, and the foremost leader in “change management.”Â Â Several websites have claimed thatÂ Pritchett’s letter first saw the light of day when it was published in the New York Times.Â I checked the Times archives and could find no record of it.Â However,Â the letterÂ IS out there and speaks for many of us at a very difficult time in the history of the United States.
Dear President Obama,
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
-Â You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
-Â 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.
-Â You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
-Â You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
-Â You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.
-Â You scare me because you lack humility and “class”, always blaming others.
-Â You scare me because for over halfÂ your life you have aligned yourself withÂ radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals that wish to see America fail.
-Â You scare meÂ because you are a cheerleader for the “blame America” crowd and deliver this message abroad.
-Â You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominatesÂ instead of the private sector.
-Â You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
-Â You scare me because you preferÂ “wind mills” to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal, and shale reserves.
-Â You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides theÂ highestÂ standard of living in the world.
-Â You scare me because you have begun to use “extortion” tacticsÂ against certain banks and corporations.
-Â You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you onÂ your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.
-Â You scare me because you will not openly listen to or evenÂ consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
-Â You scare meÂ because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.
-Â You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
-Â You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Reillys, and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
-Â You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
-Â 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.

Â Â I find it hardÂ to believe the New York Times would actually publish a letter like this, since it goes against everything they believe in regarding their Messiah, Barack Obama.Â Whatever.Â The point is, Pritchett’s words speak directly to the concerns and issues that many Americans find very troubling about the current occupant of the White House.Â Thank you, Mr. Pritchett.Â Well said.Â
