I have had it….letter to Obama

According to snopes, the only thing not true about this is the name/address of the woman who wrote it….evidently, some fourth grade teacher out there really did write this…..and all I say is…..”you go, Girl”!!!!


This 4th grade teacher has said it all, and she was brave enough to attach her name to it.

Mr. Obama:
I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally.

You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United States .. You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.

I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States ? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governin g this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?

Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia . You didn’t show Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia .. How dare you, sir! How dare you!

You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you dont want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey … You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. Whats the matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddleand should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you..

You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.

What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You havent said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didnt!

Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that’s $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now?

I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you.

I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country..

Every real American

P.S. I rarely ask that emails be ‘passed around’………….PLEASE SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST……it’s past time for all Americans to wake up!

  1. Another hoax!


    Thank heaven! I’d hate to think someone so ignorant of what is in the Declaration and Constitution were out there polluting 4th grade minds!

    What cheek, and cowardice, for the author of this letter to borrow the good name and office of Mrs. Lyday.

  2. True or not…the problem here is that someone voiced their opinions..opinions that contradict the norm these days..and people are responding in a manner that is coming all to familiar to those who believe that things in our beloved Country are getting worse…not better.

  3. I’m a real American. Don’t presume to speak for me. And, after 8 long, hellish years of “With Me or Against Me,” unregulated corporate greed run wild, free speech zones, signing statements, phone taps, renditions, secret prisons and torture chambers, I don’t believe things can get any worse; they can only get better. I’m glad our current president is at least trying to restore some semblance of dignity and sanity to our national image. International cooperation is essential. The U.S. can’t fix the problems of this world alone. And, the G.O.P. and their loud-mouthed pro-corporate right wing cheering section is still in denial about global warming even as the glaciers melt and the polar bears tread water before our eyes. Give me a break! Stop whining about your nationalistic pride and hurt feelings and focus on the major issues, like saving the environment and having some respect for human rights for a change. Obama’s not perfect; no president is. But, is it asking too much that people who claim to be patriots can stop nit-picking and bellyaching about speeches and bows and get behind the president where it really counts? Do you think our brave young men and women in Afghanistan like hearing the folks back home whine incessantly about the commander-in-chief over petty crap like this??

  4. About bloody time!

  5. Tom Olbert…just exactly where do you get your info from…? Obama is purposely bankrupting America and giving our money to Africa and Mexico and who knows who else… Obama wants to teach our children to be Homosexuals..!
    I say leave our children alone..! America has done nothing but to try and help other countries, and we have the graveyards all over the world with our Heroes buried in them…and Obama has the nerve to tell everyone we are no longer a Christian nation…and he is screwing up the Afgan war…while our brave soldiers are dying… I dont want to hear about its bush’s fault….because we heard you loud and clear for 8 damn years….wake up and smell the coffee dude… Obama doesnt like America…Obama will not fight for America…Obama is taking this country into socialism and moving it into the New World Order…Do you homework..!
    He has socialist, communist, haters of America czars trying to transform this country into a third world country… He is removing God and replacing him with only God knows what… The commandment Thou Shalt Not Steal…to Obama means transfer all Americas wealth to whom Obama selects…He has stolen our banks, car companies, insurance companies..and he aint finished yet..! Unemployment is sky high because he wants all america on welfare…! Look it up..do some research…and stop babbling on about how wonderful Obama is…and get to the truth….There is a saying… Fools rush in where angels fear to tread….
    Obama has chosen to remove God…and therefore if we dont stop his evel ways…
    if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.

  6. Charlie…We’ve had separation of church and state for over two hundred years now. Religion begins at home. Keep it there. Some of us want it out of politics. Anyway, do your homework. Unemployment is rampant because the economy collapsed under the Republicans. You can’t blame Obama for everything, any more than you can blame Bush for everything. Obama’s not a socialist. He’s not hurting anybody’s kids. And, I never said he was ‘wonderful.’ He simply believes in democracy and equality, and in helping those who need it. That makes him a socialist? Look it up, you say? Where do you get your information? Hatemongers like Limbaugh and Beck? How about judging the president for what he’s actually done, or failed to do, not what you assume he’s doing?
