businessman_writes_letter-6-10-14

Five years ago on June 9 at my home blog, I republished a May 2009 letter retired Procter & Gamble executive Lou Pritchett originally sent to the New York Times.

The Times rejected Pritchett’s letter (to be clear, that the Times would not print it is not problematic).

Mr. Pritchett and others used alternative means to circulate his letter.

Almost 5-1/2 year into Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation,” I thought it would be a good time to re-post Pritchett’s letter, so readers can determine for themselves just how far we’ve fallen since Pritchett sounded his personal alarm:

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA
By Lou Pritchett

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.

The first time I saw Obama I had a gut reaction.
It was as if, inside in some deep place of subconscious
Some instinctual and primal fear was aroused within.
Yes, this man scares me. And after five and one half years
If he doesn't scare you, either you're not paid attention
Or, like other past megalomaniac geniuses, he's got
You under his spell.

Sales of T shirts that merely say "Told You So" should be up by now.

You could just change the lines to past tense and print it again.
Sad, that.
We knew it in 2008, we knew it in 2012 as confirmed by the first term's track record. And too many still voted "stupid."

Well said.
Let's hope it makes a difference.

Since you are tripping down memory lane, perhaps you could reprint Zombie's November 2, 2012 post, and update it.

Preceint, indeed.

I remember reading that letter here and felt as Yoelarry did.

Well, here it is, and two more effing years of his grinding America into dust is what we have to look forward to.

We can all hope against hope he (or someone that has been close in his admin) will make *the* mistake that will drive the polital will to sucsessfully accomplish impeachment (or an act of God will somehow intervene).

I did not read this letter at the time it was first published, but it expresses how I felt then and was wondering why a majority of the people did not see what I and this gentleman saw and get upset about it. I still wonder.
