Fourth Grade Teachers Letter to Obama

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 S tates of America collectively or of me

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 people of any other country on

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 people 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, at least until you came along, and
the principles governing this country 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 don't want to offend the Germans, but make time to visit a
mosque in Turkey . You offended our dead and every veteran when you gave
the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from
themselves. What's the matter with you?

I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the
historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and 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. 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.

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
haven't said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn't!

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. Sincerely,

Ms. Kathleen Lyday
