Dear Mr. Obama,

Excuse me right off the bat for not respecting the title of “Mr. President,” but at this current time I truly feel you no longer deserve that high honor, as YOU have disrespected me, and thousands of others who “waved tea bags around” in protest of your overspending.

You obviously don’t care what the American people are trying to convey to you. You claim you’ll have a “conversation” with us, but we’ve tried already, and you didn’t listen. We have contacted our Senators and Congress, and we have been ignored.

It’s disgraceful that you stood before a large crowd and publicly humiliated the people you claim to serve. You aren’t serving US, Mr. Obama, you are serving your own agenda and your own left-wing, liberal party. You have no respect for the average American, and obviously no regard for what our needs are.

When millions of people bashed President Bush, he never once stooped so low as to publicly call them out, nor did he criticize any news station that “disliked” him, because he didn’t care. He was serving the people, not the press. He didn’t make a public spectacle out of himself so he’d look cute or funny, and he didn’t take pot shots at those who disagreed with him and make them look like fools. He had honor. He had common decency and respect. He was a class act who refused to take the bait.

President Bush once said that he knew that the decisions he made regarding the war weren’t always going to be popular with everyone, and he knew he was risking his reputation by making those tough decisions, but he said he’d “rather risk his reputation than risk the safety of this country.” Now THAT is honorable. You could take a lesson from this story, Mr. Obama, because it seems as if you don’t know how to govern the people, so instead you lash out at them, and that is utterly shameful. You owe the American people an apology, and their voices deserve to be heard!

Instead of trying to be a cute celebrity who’s trying to win a popularity contest, it would be better if you just stopped and listened. But you think you’re better than the average American, and you take them for fools. Stand up and take responsibility for the mistakes you’ve made, as you and your party insisted President Bush should have done so many times before. Fix the problems instead of blaming someone else, and stop making those problems worse!

By you implying that the tea party participants were “pretending” that their protest was against the TARP package just goes to show that you weren’t listening and you don’t care what was really being said. Instead, you publicly humiliated them to get a laugh out of the crowd, and in the process caused further division.

Americans are tired of bailing out big corporations. They are fearful of the wasteful spending that has been taking place over the past 101 days in your administration. They worry about their future, and the future of their children and their children’s children. They don’t WANT socialized healthcare, and they don’t want nationalized businesses where you run the show and make the decisions for those companies. They don’t want the wool pulled over their eyes with sneaky politics and hush-hush bills being rushed through without real debates and conversations about what those bills entail. They are “we the people,” and you and this government work for them, not the other way around. They want their voices to be heard. They love this country and the principals it was founded upon. They love the idea of this country and know the value of freedom. But these very people are finding that freedom is only one-sided now. That anyone who disagrees with the liberal agenda will be ridiculed, and eventually silenced. It is OUR rights that are being taken away. It’s our voices that are being stifled. It is our morals and values that are being degraded and belittled. And we have now become a corrupt nation, full of lies, betrayal, and hate, with an utter lack of respect for one another and their beliefs, ideals, and opinions. And by ridiculing the tea party participants, Mr. Obama, you only added more fuel to that already blazing fire.

This country is turning upside down and the American people are desperately trying to prevent that from happening full tilt. They are restless and angry. They are desperate and fearful. They are weary and tired. And all you do is rub salt to those very wounds. You’re not helping the country, Mr. Obama, you are destroying it, and you are destroying the American people. You are hurting us instead of helping us.

You may have won, but that doesn’t make you right. Stop degrading average Americans and start listening, start governing, and start working for “we the people.” Stop trying to be cute and funny. You weren’t hired to be a celebrity. You were hired to be the President of the United States of America. Start acting like it.

I’m confused. Did we elect a President to govern and run our country, or did we elect a celebrity to make the talk circuit rounds to “pump up” agendas?

 

This is ridiculous. He is ridiculous. But what I find more ridiculous is the notion that people think this is okay. That they find him “average” or “normal” because he goes on TV shows and makes tacky jokes that the lower class ding-dongs find endearing. They cheer him on, they laugh at his humorless jokes, and they sigh in relief that we finally have a President who can be young and relatable. He’s relatable because he stoops to the lowest common denominator. He’s not smart! He’s not brilliant! He’s not even normal or relatable! He’s not like you and me, and no matter how many jokes he makes, or how many late night shows he appears on, he’s will never be like you and me.

 

This man is supposed to be governing. Running the country. Making tough decisions. But in the last couple of months he’s done nothing of significance except push a bunch of papers around, signing bills that will ultimately destroy the foundation of our country. He’s the guy you work with that pretends to be busy so he won’t lose his job. He’s busy doing nothing while he steals wages from the company. He’s the guy you ponder and just have to ask, “What does he really do here?”

 

While Obama runs around the country—on taxpayers money, mind you—to seem cute and enduring, he’s fooling us, he’s tricking us into keeping our eyes off the real problems. He makes stupid jokes to take the focus off of his incompetence and hopes you’ll still find him likeable and charming. And the majority of people, who apparently don’t have a brain in their head, fall for it every time. They are awestruck.

 

It used to be that meeting the President was so overwhelming that you would lose all concentration. But people think Obama is “one of us,” a “good neighbor”, but he’s literally that guy we like so much that we can’t believe he’s the madman that’s been devouring the neighborhood kids who have been disappearing. “He was always so nice…I just can’t believe he did it.” But that’s what charming people do: deceive. Lie. Cheat. Steal. Threaten. All the while they look like us. They win us over. They trick us. They make us like them so we would never suspect what they were really up to.

 

The President needs to be Presidential, and that doesn’t mean he talks to us through Jay Leno. He has an Oval Office–a place that signifies his leadership and authority to the world–where he should make his pleas to the people. Instead, this President, runs to the liberal side of Hollywood to get your attention, because Americans don’t hold that office with much respect anymore…and that’s a disgrace in itself.

 

I’m ashamed of Americans. That you are defending a man who is a million times dumber than most of you proclaimed President Bush to be. But when Obama does it, that’s okay. This President makes clumsy errors and the world embraces him instead of ridiculing him the way they did Bush. In the past 50 days, he’s done utterly ridiculous things that would have had Americans SCREAMING for Bush’s head had he done them.

 

But hardly anyone is crying outrage here. We laugh this guy off. We want to “give him a chance.” You know why? Because you can’t admit that he’s not the right guy for the office. He doesn’t fit the profile. He doesn’t have the qualifications. He doesn’t have the smarts for it. He’s dumb as a brick when it comes to governing a country. He’s Clueless, co-starring with Alicia Silverstone. But we’ll let it slide. We’ll keep laughing at his ridiculous jokes instead of demanding him to run the country. We’ll just continue to let Congress run the country into the ground while our President confuses us through late night shtick. “Pay no attention to that woman behind that curtain…Look at me!” He’s like the shiny object that distracts the null-minded! He’s blinding us with glitz and glitter. He’s the Paris Hilton of Presidents.

 

I’m confused America. I’m confused because I don’t understand what most of you are thinking anymore, or if you’re thinking at all. We’ve let our morals and good judgments slide down the slippery slope, all for “hope” that only translated into trickery. And instead of standing against this stupidity and madness, 65% of you just laugh. You feel reassured by him. You feel confident in him, even when your lives are falling apart. You refuse to see him for what he is and what he truly isn’t. You just want to keep believing in a false god that will ultimately destroy your livelihood. Most of you don’t even know what he’s saying; you’re just so darn impressed with the fact that he’s a normal guy, just like you, sitting in the seat next to Jay Leno. How many times have you been on the Jay Leno show? Yeah, that’s how “normal” he is, folks.

 

You’ve made Obama into a pop culture icon rather than a leader of the free world! He’s turned the Oval Office into a circus ring, filled with clowns and jackasses, and he’s the Ring Leader, distracting us from the dictatorship and abuses that are going on behind the scenes.

 

He’s not a President. He’s a Talking Head. He throws glitter in your eyes, blinding you with the glamour of the Presidency, rather than the harsh reality of the role. But that’s because he doesn’t know it. He hasn’t dealt with it yet. That’s why he’s the one making the TV rounds. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. And he’s more than proven that point 50% of his short time in office. He’s bumbling around, running into things, signing this and that without weighing the consequences. He’s forcing us to leap before we’ll realize that we’re leaping into a pot of boiling water. Confusion is center stage at the Obama Circus, and that’s why no one has a clue as to what’s going on. We’re pressured to believe he knows best, when he knows nothing at all. And then they backtrack and pass the buck back to Bush. How convenient for them…

 

America, it’s disgraceful that you are allowing these things to happen. It’s shameful that you are so awestruck by the colorful lights and the empty words, that you truly don’t even know what’s going on anymore.

 

But if you are a select few who still believe that the government should be working for YOU, and not the other way around, check out this website. You won’t be disappointed.
