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 Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys 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.

Mr. Pritchett confirmed that he was indeed the author of the much-circulated "open letter." “I did write the 'you scare me' letter. I sent it to the NY Times but they never acknowledged or published it. However, it hit the internet and according to the ‘experts’ has had over 500,000 hits.

If Obama scares someone because he "did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American."....then that person is an ignorant bigot. Nuff said. This is a pretty shameless post. The stuff of Fox News and the Washington Post. Not of a moral conservative, fiscal progressive. Just FYI!

I am thinking of sending this letter myself, it certainly sums up how me & my family feels. And for anyone that feels we should let the most important position go un-answered is a Biblical Fool, and has a reprobate mind. Obama is a lot like God, they have one thing in common, neither one has a birth certificate. For obama's manly wife, she is an embarassment to this country, her fashion comes straight out of the GF Fashions-Ghetto Fashions. Don't mess with Americans & Palin. All of this PC crap is getting to me. It use to be you could make a call or go into a business and ask a question and have the one you are speaking to give you answers, because of affirmative action which is the biggest racist action ever, they don't know the answers, so you have to coach them through their job to give you your answer. Libs have it so bad then leave, and obama isn't african-American, He IS kenyan-American. The birds have better sense, When you find a Blue Jay & a Red Cardinal getting it on, please let us know.

Obama is a dishonor to this country and what is this about him being caught burning a report about global warning......This man is dangerous and very sly and knows exactly what he is doing. He can take any subject and when he is done speaking makes one believe how wonderful and you better agree for it's his way or the highway...he has a very angry attitude about him and his smirky smile states the ignorance he has.

Sunny Optimist should change their name to Sunny Ostrich. Keep you head in the sand. Maybe, just maybe, you'll be lucky enough that the damage that this administration is doing won't effect you very much. I don't how that is possible, but you can keep hopin'.
