Former Procter & Gamble VP to Obama: “You Scare Me!”

April 11, 2010

Here’s one of the most eloquent open letters to United States’ President Barack Obama. This widely-circulated letter, written by Mr. Lou Pritchett, former vice president of Procter & Gamble, opens with the line: “You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.”

Indeed, Mr. Pritchett shares the fear, anxiety and anger of most Americans today, as their socialist/Maoist leader continues to socialize America, expand the powers of the Federal government, and redistribute the wealth of those who produce and who work hard to make America the best place to live.

Mr. Pritchett’s “Open Letter to President Obama” is now on Facebook and gaining fans and supporters. The fan page, which has attracted 743 members/supporters as of this writing, is called Procter & Gamble VP’s OPEN LETTER to Mr. Obama, “YOU SCARE ME”.

Here’s Mr. Pritchett’s famous letter:

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.

    I never see a President so arrogant, no class, and no finesse ….really really sad. What a waste for such an honor to be President of the United States. Can’t really put in words.

    This letter is poorly written, xenophobic, and immature.
