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 governing 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 cant 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 give 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.
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!
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.
Sincerely, 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!

Oldie, but goody needs BTTT.....
I liked this line
“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..”
I like to see passions ignited in a woman. Scorn her again Obama, please. I’d like to read that.
Be sure to post the IRS Audit letter when that arrives, please.
She is a school teacher. I doubt her return is that complex. Let them come after her, I’ll contribute to her legal fund.
She's obviously a dangerous anarchist bent on....
Oh,sorry...that's Olberpunk's line.
He and his aren’t listening. They will.
From the site:
Analysis: Readers will either agree or disagree with the opinions expressed above depending on their own political convictions, but the matter of its authorship is subject to correction.
I contacted Kathleen Lyday at Grandview Elementary School in Hillsboro, Missouri, and she told me she did not, in fact, write the letter. More often than not, the signature lines of people who forward such emails are automatically attached in the process and become a semi-permanent feature. This is apparently what happened to Ms. Lyday.
Other variants attribute authorship to "Franklin Bell" or "Douglas M. Casamer." Franklin Bell of Columbia, Maryland is the likelier candidate, given that a version dated April 9, 2009 was posted by blogger Gary Shumway under a preface stating that he had obtained Mr. Bell's permission to do so.

Crud. I should have checked snopes, except I can’t believe them half the time anymore.
Ruh-roh!! SOMEBODY just made the WH enemies list!!!
Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha . . . . !!!!!!
Great job, Kathleen!!
Paula Abdul Twitters : She’s Leaving American Idol !!
I’ll admit it was posted in bloggers. But still.
Enormous Money (Simon offered $144 mil a year to stay on ‘Idol’)
My point has been made here.
The letter may be genuine, the web site I posted is not definitive on the issue, but the citation to Lyday is incorrect.
Agree on your assessment of Snopes. Who fact-checks on their fact-checks??
Maybe she didn’t write it but some of the many who hold those same sentiments might have done so.
What did Dan Rather call it? Fake but accurate?
Thanks. I had not seen this one. Had you not posted it I might not have had additional fodder with which to irritate leftists.
So she should really be pi***ed(as we all are)about him throwing a dinner for the people who are killing our guys and women off in Afghanistan. What a communist SOB we have in the WH. I wish we had an unbiased legislature because they would already be impeaching this a**hat.
