An Open Letter To President Obama

This letter sent by Lou Pritchett is verified as being attributed to him and he personally has acknowledged it's authenticity. Further, he says the letter was originally sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it. He is aware that it has gone viral on the Internet, however, and seems to enjoy that fact. Since this is an open letter, which is now in the public domain and is correctly attributed, I am posting it here.

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 management. 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.
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

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

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

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.

  1. Ivy League universities are not good at getting students jobs, only grants to be commie nutty organizers. If you are liberal, anything you do is inherently ethical for the cause, but if you are a conservative, and believe in GOD, family or business, your very moral fiber, even down to trivial autonomic responses, is subject to persecution as either dangerously criminal or the result of clinical illness. The lowest level university bureaucrats actually suffer the worst affectations and are likey to be the most vicious persecutors of your children. No business ever trusts such left wing graduates who don't believe in capitalism and become crooks because they are taught the only way business makes money is crooked so they seek to avenge their unemployability through their own crookedness. The universities consider real jobs and competition beneath them, so they want their little sissies to live off grants, even in the hard sciences or business. How many of their engineering professors have Professional Engineering certification? Almost none! They love foreign students because they slave up and don't expect professors to actually work for the tuition, like American students do. No middle class parent should consider sending their kids there, because these schools will destroy your entire family. The only schools that understand middle-class values are for-profits. Middle class parents foolish enough to buy into the Ivy League dream die way too young.

  2. Great post! Keep up the excellent work!!
