We Noticed


This was attributed to Sherry Hackett, Buddy Hackett's widow as the author, but that cannot be confirmed. It was intended for the September 11 Service Day but has taken hold on the web. Regardless, it is right on the mark and needs to be seen by everyone.

President Obama:

Today I read of your administrations' plan to re-define September 11 as a National Service Day. Sir, it's time we had a talk.........

During your campaign, Americans watched as you made mockery of our tradition of standing and crossing your heart when the Pledge of Allegiance was spoken. You, out of four people on the stage, were the only one not honoring our tradition.

YES, "We noticed."

During one of your many speeches, Americans heard you say that you intended to visit all 57 states. We all know that Islam, not America, has 57 states.

YES, "We noticed."

When President Bush leaned over at Ground Zero and gently placed a flower on the memorial, while you nonchalantly tossed your flower onto the pile without leaning over.

YES, "We noticed."

Every time you apologized to other countries for America 's position on an issue we have wondered why you don't share our pride in this great country. When you have heard foreign leaders berate our country and our beliefs, you have not defended us. In fact, you insulted the British Crown beyond belief.

YES, "We noticed.."

When your pastor of 20 years, "God-damned America " and said that 9/11 was "America's chickens coming home to roost" and you denied having heard recriminations of that nature, we wondered how that could be. You later disassociated yourself from that church and Pastor Wright because it was politically expedient to do so.

YES, "We noticed."

When you announced that you would transform America , we wondered why. With all her faults, America is the greatest country on earth. Sir, KEEP THIS IN MIND, "if not for America and the people who built her, you wouldn't be sitting in the White House now." Prior to your election to the highest office in this Country, you were a senator from Illinois and from what we can glean from the records available, not a very remarkable one.

YES, "We noticed."

All through your campaign and even now, you have surrounded yourself with individuals who are basically unqualified for the positions for which you appointed them. Worse than that, the majority of them are people who, like you, bear no special allegiance, respect, or affection for this country and her traditions.

YES, "We noticed."

You are 9 months into your term and every morning millions of Americans wake up to a new horror heaped on us by you. You seek to saddle working Americans with a health care/insurance reform package that, along with cap and trade, will bankrupt this nation.

YES, "We noticed."

We seek, by protesting, to let our representatives know that we are not in favor of these crippling expenditures and we are labeled "un-American","racist", "mob". We wonder how we are supposed to let you know how frustrated we are. You have attempted to make our protests seem isolated and insignificant. Until your appointment, Americans had the right to speak out.

YES, "We noticed."

On September 11, 2001 there were no Republicans or Democrats, only Americans. And we all grieved together and helped each other in whatever way we could. The attack on 9/11 was carried out because we are Americans.

And YES, "We noticed."

There were many of us who prayed that as a black president you could help unite this nation. In six months you have done more to destroy this nation than the attack on 9/11. You have failed us.

YES, "We noticed."

September 11 is a day of remembrance for all Americans.. You propose to make 9/11 a "National Service Day". While we know that you don't share our reverence for 9/11, we pray that history will report your proposal as what it is...a disgrace.

YES, "We noticed."

You have made a mockery of our Constitution and the office that you hold. You have embarrassed and slighted us in foreign visits and policy.

YES, "We noticed.."

We have noticed all these things. We will deal with you. When Americans come together again, it will be to remove you from office.

Take notice.

That was a pretty thorough list.

Wow!

Mind if I borrow to repost? With all due accolades, of course.

Coffeypot said...

Secretia, and the list goes on...

KyWoman, please do and no accolades required. The more who see it the more the world will understand what we have as president.

Matty said...

The problem is......no one else is noticing. They're blinded by his charisma, charm and public speaking skills, and the media.

Nice post.

He's the CinC, he should be our biggest defender. I just find the lip service and "hands off" approach to be very troubling.

Speaking of attitudes. Recently I went to a party with a bunch of libertarians. (I'm not a libertarian). When it came to the troops, they said, "Bring them home!" but for the reason that this was "George's war, and it's an illegal one because there wasn't a declaration of war."

What it pointed out, is they care more about the technicality than they do for the men and women who serve. They had no experience with any military whatsoever. They were very typical upper middle class, educated, self centered Orange County California selfish twits.

So when I see this, I do find it to be the result of some serious lack of insight and experience with veterans and the military as it is today.

Wow. Just wow.I don't know what else to say.

Ed Adams said...

I'm sad to say, the only time I voted non-Republican in my life was for him (that whole "racially uniting to country" thing) and I have regretted every minute of it.
I really hoped he would bring this country together, plus I was afraid John McCain would die in office due to age, leaving Palin in charge(who, let's face it, was good eye candy but not much of a prospective leader.)
I was really hoping Huckabee would have won the Republican nomination, but that was definitely the last time I ever let my emotions vote for me.

Ed, at least you are learning. As for uniting the country over racism, he has set it back 50 years.

Just an SSS stopping by as I blog hop.

Really enjoyed this post and am passing it on.

Thanks!

I don't understand where you're coming from, other than misinformation, misdirection, and racially motivated venality.

I am a proud Obama supporter, though I wish he would get more progressive in the cause he espouses and his methodology of attainment.

When I first stumbled on this blog I thought it looked pretty good. This kind of mindless, misdirected diatribe that lacks any critical thinking skills in its posting on this topic causes me to delete it from my bookmarks.

Hope you get a grip and stop being influenced by the teabaggers and FauxNews.
