Another Chain Letter from the Paranoid Delusional Reich Wing

You know how I hate those bullshit chain letters your always get from your crazy Aunt and are typically just all bullshit. Well, here is another one with my rebuttals in red.

This was checked on Snopes (searched "Letter to Obama from Lou Pritchett"), and it is for real .


Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America 's true living legends- an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world's highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change manage ment. Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as "partnering." Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years, made corporate history.


Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me. But Nixon, Bush and senile Reagan with his hand on the button made you sleep soundly at night?

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you. Because you can’t read. There are at least 2 books out about his entire life.

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. They are called scholarships and student loans. When you are smart, people actually offer them to you. Lawyers typically don’t have much trouble paying these things off. Not to mention a couple of best selling books which far outsold your book Mr. Prichett. Who did you think paid for them, the Saudis?? No, they are the ones who paid for Bush’s now bankrupt companies. How about 2 lawyers and a Professor of the University of Chicago salaries paying for a modest house in a black neighborhood which is a relatively inexpensive house by Chicago’s standards? You think those might be ways of paying for this house?

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American. Just because you and Palin don’t know that Hawaii is a state within the United States of America doesn’t mean what you are saying is true. Barack Obama lived abroad from the years 1967-1971. So if by formative years you mean between 7 and 11 years old, then you are correct. At least he can find Indonesia on the map which is more than I can say for Sarah Palin or our last President. Living abroad educates you and expands your horizons far more than shooting elk from a helicopter or drilling empty holes in the Texas desert. So Lou, were you also just as terrified of John McCain who was born in Panama?

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll. But you prefer someone like Bush who has ran several companies into bankruptcy only to have them baled out by his fathers rich Saudi friends. The difference here is that when Bush bankrupted the U.S. the Saudis weren’t here to bale us out. So which companies and payrolls did Sarah Palin, Ronald Reagan and John McCain run?

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core. Just like Bush, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz,Reagan, Lincoln, Palin, Adams, Jefferson, etc. However, John Kerry served in Vietnam but you chose not to vote for him.

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others. So you are saying that the economy is Obama’s fault, not his predecessor? Iraq and Afghanistan are Obama's fault, not Bush's? Good one. He is merely calling a spade a spade.

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. He met Bill Ayers a few times while serving on a board of directors. His minister gave one speech about how Americas action can come back to haunt us. At least he didn’t spend half his life taking money from the extremist Saudi government or America haters such as Rush Limbaugh who want the country to fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America ' crowd and deliver this message abroad. Name one speech where Obama blamed America. America is to blame for Iraq, for the Shah of Iran, Pinochet, Efrain Rios Montt of Guatemala, Noriega, The Taliban, Saddam Hussein, etc. and the list goes one. Just because Fox News doesn’t tell you about it, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. You are being lied to.

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 mean where everyone has health care, they have a longer life expectancy rate, lower infant mortality rate, lower crime rate, lower murder rate, stronger economy, valuable currency, are scientifically driven, highly educated, high wages, at peace,etc??? Yes, that would be awful. Let's avoid that at all costs.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a controlled one. That’s a good thing. An all things go, laze faire, profit driven approach to health care has produced the most expensive health care system in the world and one of the worst in the western world. 1/3 of every health care dollar is spent on insurance profit and bureaucracy and over half of all family bankruptcies are due to medical bills.

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves. Vast?? Is that supposed to be a joke? If America stopped importing foreign oil and lived only on what we could extract from National Parks and wild life refuges, at best estimates we could get a year and halfs worth of oil out of Alaska. And is T.Boone Pickens, an oil man, lying about oil and wind?

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. Well, highest standard of living in the world for the upper class, one of the lowest standards of living for the poor in the Western Industrialized world. He doesn’t want to tax American job providing companies. He wants to punish the tax evading, job exporting corporations who are trying to eliminate the middle class and transfer that wealth from the middle class to the upper class and then, he wants to raise the tax rates on those people to the same rates they paid under Reagan.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations. Who have been living on the government’s money. Money doesn’t come with no strings attached no matter what. If you wan’t daddies money, you have to live under daddies rules.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals. Ever hear about the Blue Dog Democrats? I think you are talking about Bush’s congress, they are the ones who gave him a blank check in Iraq and a blank check for the AIG bailout which Paulson needed to puch through because AIG owed his former company, Goldman Sachs so much money that if they defaulted they would be out of business.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people. Rush Limbaugh, a college drop out, doesn’t count as intelligent. A mediocre graduate from Idaho State University who thinks she would be good at foreign policy because she can see Russia from her house, doesn’t count as intelligent.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient. Omnipotent is almost the exact definition of both Cheney and Bush. Are you blind? Obama has repeatedly brought Republicans to the table to try and include them on issues. As far as omniscience goes, well, it is a bit shocking to have a President who actually knows things, I know. It may look like he is trying to be a know it all but as it turns out, he just knows more than you which makes him smarter than you and our last President, not omniscience.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do. The media? you mean like Anne Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Sean Hannity, The Drudge Report, The Weekly Standard, The National Review, The Christian Science Monitor? Yes, Fox News never calls him a communist or lies about how he is trying to take away the first amendment. I love how the free passes were never a problem with you guys when Faux News was doing it for Bush.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view. No, not silence or demonize, just point out how they lie and that they are wrong. When you don’t tell the truth and the opposing party gets upset about it, that is not demonizing or silencing, it’s a natural reaction.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing. Do you even know the difference? Name one thing he is trying to control. And by control over governing, how do no warrant wire taps fit into this picture?

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. Now you know how liberals felt for the last 8 years…except they weren’t delusional. Bush actually signed laws restricting our rights, Obama has done no such thing, not even with assault weapons which are fueling Mexico’s drug war which coincidentally escalated shortly after the Assault Weapon ban was repealed.

I love getting those letters at times, too.
What's funny is that the person that put together this fake letter just cut and pasted a bunch of crap from Fox News.
"Feel Good" (if you're crazy) stuff for the low class whites that are scared of black people.
These are the wedges they are trying to use now to keep and/or whip up the base.
How else do you get people to stand up and protest against health care reform that would actually help them? It's pretty astounding when you think about it..
Personally, I don't think there's been ENOUGH change to the left at all and I am saddened by the site of all the Goldman Sachs assholes that are around Obama.

Agreed. And though I favor health care reform, Obama's plan doesn't even start to come close enough to what we need. The insurance companies and profit need to be expunged from the health care industry. Over 30% of health care costs come from the overhead of having hundreds of different companies and plans all with their own overhead. They need to go.
