Letter to Oboma
This was sent to me via email. I thought it pretty well sums up how many are angry with the current adminsitration. Note that the letter is dated April 17th. Had this letter been written a month later, I'm sure this thoughtful school teacher could ad a few more paragrahs...

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington , DC 20500
I have had it with you and your administration, sir.
Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me
that you are not an adequate representative of the
United States of America collectively or of me personally.
You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the
Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of
the President of the United States of America .
You are responsible to the citizens of the United States
... You are not responsible to the peoples of any other
country on earth.
I personally resent that you go around the world
apologizing for the United States telling Europeans
that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in
the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War
and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration
of the peoples of Europe ?
Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about?
Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?
Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront
to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to
anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia . You
didn't show Great Britain , our best and one of our
oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to
the king of Saudi Arabia .. How dare you, sir! How dare you!
You canít find the time to visit the graves of our
greatest generation because you donít want to offend the
Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey
... You offended our dead and every veteran when you
give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the
German people from themselves. Whatís the matter with you?
I am convinced that you and the members of your
administration have the historical and intellectual depth of
a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.
You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and
the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about
the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank,
Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic,the Fannie Mae bonuses, and
the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about
them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.
What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million
in bonuses to their staff members Ė on top of the $2.5
million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave
themselves? I understand the average House aide got a
17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with
my employer. You havenít said anything about
that. Who authorized that? I surely didnít!
Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving
$210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period,
that's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In
fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been
awarded $51 million Ė not a bad take. Who
authorized that and why havenít you expressed your outrage
at this group who are largely responsible for the economic
mess we have right now.
I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as
brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do.
We are watching what you are doing and we are getting
increasingly fed up with all of you. I also want you to
know that I personally find just about everything you do and
say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities.
I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that
you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my
