    Now here is a smart woman and teacher! Her students are indeed fortunate!

    **April 17, 2009***

    The White House

    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

    Washington , DC 20500

    Mr. Obama:*

    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


    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?

    Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States

    does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the

    Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States ?

    This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles

    governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly

    from this heritage. Do you not understand this?

    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 don’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 can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation

    because you don’t 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. What’s 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 ? 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 haven’t said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely


    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 ? not a bad take. Who authorized that and why

    haven’t 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 beautiful country.


    Every real American

    P.S. I rarely ask that emails be 'passed around'...PLEASE SEND THIS TO

    YOUR EMAIL's past time for all Americans to wake up! *

    According to Snopes and Urban Legends Mrs Lyday didn't write this letter. I'm just providing the link from Snopes as they have it set up so you can't copy and paste from their site.

    From Urban Legends:

    Analysis: Readers will either agree or disagree with the opinions expressed in the letter above depending on their own political convictions, but the matter of its authorship is subject to correction.

    I contacted Kathleen Lyday, who does teach at Grandview Elementary School in Hillsboro, Missouri, and she told me she did not, in fact, write the letter. More often than not, the signature lines of people who forward such emails are automatically attached in the process and become a semi-permanent feature of the messages. This is apparently what happened to Ms. Lyday.

    Other variants attribute authorship to "Franklin Bell" or "Douglas M. Casamer." Franklin Bell of Columbia, Maryland is the likelier candidate, given that a version dated April 9, 2009 was posted by blogger Gary Shumway under a preface stating that he had obtained Mr. Bell's permission to do so. ... _obama.htm
