An Open Letter To Obama From Lou Pritchett

An Open Letter to Obama from Lou Pritchett

It is completely confirmed by Snopes:

A letter from Lou Pritchett, PROCTER & GAMBLE EXECUTIVE to the PRESIDENT

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 13th 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 Limbaugh's, Hannity's, O'Reilly's and Beck's 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.

Lou Pritchett

This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it.
No big surprise.

I love this man...

Not that I think this letter will garner any reaction from anyone that can do anything about it.

What a truly sad, scary state our country is in.

Thank you for sharing this, coffey.

I find it amazing that anyone listens to a former corporate CEO [P&G] who is more famous for his paid speaking work than anything else. Where is his service to the nation?

Coffeypot said...

Charlene, spoken like a true Socialist and truth hater. First of all, Lou has done more for the Nation in his successful tenure with Proctor and Gamble than Obama ever did as a Community Organizer. Lou has contributed to the economy where as Obama has helped destroy it. But regardless of what ever the acclaimed and famous business man has done, what he says is true and cannot be desecrated. Where is Barry’s birth certificate, who financed his college education, who ever said he was a college professor when all he was was a lecturer, no responsibility of a class room at. NO EXPERIENCE AT ALL. Just a pompous, egotist.

Almost no comment.

Charlene said...

For people who admire those who use them, the statement that "one" is born every minute is true.

Let's hope enough people read the letter and make a "change"
