Obama, You Scare Me

This letter was written by Lou Pritchett, former VP at Proctor & Gamble. I also acknowledge that Snopes has been accused by forum members here of being part of some Liberal plot.

Dear Barack Hussein 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.

Clinton's remarks about the 9/11 commission were about it going soft on Bush. You have not made even a weak case to support your "facts".
Here are a couple of indisputable facts:
1-9/11 happened on George Bush's watch and
2-George Bush never got bin laden.
You can't refute this, we've discussed this topic ad-nauseum and I'm finished here.

It only becomes ad nauseum because I forget to ask the question that stops...ALL

1) discussion about Clinton*s "surplus", and

2) ALL bashes about Bush—and that is:

3) "Should we return the 500 TONS of Uranium to the Middle East that we shipped OUT of Iraq—TO Canada for processing into peaceful energy?"

Dragonfly thought there was a WW2 "trick" in that question, plus, she was too busy to answer.

Although cut from the same "True Believer" cloth as Dragonfly, I still breathlessly await a response from Poppatuf and xrayspx.



The 500 tons of Uranium was left over from the first Persian Gulf war and never a factor in the Iraq invasion, a fact you always conveniently leave out, but then again you always leave facts out of your discussion. Why do I always get sucked back into this nonsense? Hannity? C'mon! Now hold your breath again because I'm not responding anymore.

You hardly got sucked into this question: in fact, you didn't try to answer it!

From Investors Daily Business:

"Hear about the 550 metric tons of yellowcake uranium found in Iraq? No? Why should you? It doesn't fit the media's neat story line that Saddam Hussein's Iraq posed no nuclear threat when we invaded in 2003.

"...After all, much of the early opposition to the war in Iraq involved claims that President Bush "lied" about weapons of mass destruction and that Saddam posed little if any nuclear threat to the U.S.

"...It's a little known fact that, after invading Iraq in 2003, the U.S. found massive amounts of uranium yellowcake, the stuff that can be refined into nuclear weapons or nuclear fuel, at a facility in Tuwaitha outside of Baghdad.

In recent weeks, the U.S. secretly has helped the Iraqi government ship it all to Canada, where it was bought by a Canadian company for further processing into nuclear fuel — thus keeping it from potential use by terrorists or unsavory regimes in the region.

"The International Atomic Energy Agency seems to have known about the yellowcake in the 1990s, but did nothing to force Saddam to get rid of it. It's duplicating its error today with Iran and North Korea.

"That means Saddam held onto it for more than a decade. Why? He hoped to wait out U.N. sanctions on Iraq and start his WMD program anew. This would seem to vindicate Bush's decision to invade. 500 tons of yellowcake, once refined, could make 142 nuclear weapons.

"Given what we know, including comments by officials in Niger's government, Iraq did make overtures to buy uranium. And it's quite possible all or part of the 550 tons came from there.

"Of equal concern is why the media ignored this good news coming from Iraq. It seems to be of a piece with how they've treated other recent positive developments in Iraq.

"...why aren't you seeing and hearing more about this? The reason is simple: The mainstream media find it inconveniently contradicts the story they have been telling you for years."


(Heck, even IBD forgot to include Britain's Tony Blair in our mutual invasion of Iraq).

3) "Should we return the 500 TONS of Uranium to the Middle East that we shipped OUT of Iraq—TO Canada for processing into peaceful energy?"

Yeah, because Iraq was a sovereign country with provably no viable WMDs, and had nothing to do with 9/11 terrorists, which were the two false pretenses to invasion.

They were locked down tight with no-fly zones and posed little threat to anyone. If they started trying to enrich that uranium, not only would it have taken them a decade, but Israel would have blown the shit out of them first anyway.

How much of that 500 tons was depleted uranium rounds they picked up off the ground for free after the first time we shelled their asses?

They were locked down tight with no-fly zones and posed little threat to anyone.

Where'd you get that one?

1) Saddam was shooting Russian-made missiles at Coalition aircraft trying to enforce the no-fly zones.

2) Saddam ordered Iraqi passenger aircraft to violate the no-fly zones every day to thumb their noses at Coalition aircraft trying to enforce no-fly zones.

As to Depleted Uranium:

1) They could have pried it off of our tanks.

2) DU is used to armor our heavy equipment, to coat our shells, and as ballast in ships.

3) It is used for various reasons, including to stop Iraqi tanks invading peaceful Kuwait.

4) I suspect if we'd used lead instead, the DUmmies would be complaining about our use of lead in defense of selves since WWI.

I didn't say DU wasn't the way to go, I just said "we left a lot of it laying around". You know, from Desert Storm. I don't have a particular problem with that.

Saddam was a dick, and sent aircraft to test the no-fly zones, he still wasn't threatening us, and all his actions DID accomplish was to ensure UN sanctions would never have been lifted.

Qaddafi is an example of a leader who, as wary as I am about the guy, seems to be cooperating with other countries now. Hussein never would have turned around like this, though I'm not entirely convinced about Libya either.

Obama in negative job performance category? What is this, the new, new math..."?

By doing nothing and by doing the exact-wrong things, Obama has scared enough voters to get to here—in just six months:


Clinton* aids Saddam through Chinese technology:



"...The U.S. has always been especially leery about losing a pilot, says a senior Pentagon officer.

"Saddam is eventually going to get lucky. We just want to delay that day as long as possible."

The wily boss of Baghdad had been pouring money into reconstructing his dated (but deadly) "Tall King" and "Volex" radars and linking them together with new underground fiber-optic cables [via China—link above]. That would give the dishes much sharper eyes in the sky and antiaircraft shooters a faster bead on their targets.

"Pilots on no-fly patrol have lately noticed newly aggressive Iraqi tactics in picking up their aircraft, and they have complained that some surface-to-air missile operator might soon earn the $14,000 reward Saddam has offered for shooting down a U.S. plane..."

A decrease in ObamaCare as we age?

Counseling instead of HealthCare as we age?
