The Letter From Lou...!

Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America 's true living legends. He's 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.

The following open letter, which was ignored when sent to the NY Times by Mr. Pritchett, and has been vetted and attested to by both Snopes and Truth or Fiction (see below).

by Lou Pritchett

Dear President 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.

This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it. Big surprise. Since it hit the internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing. It's happening right now.

'Nuff said...let's get some coffee, my friend!

I had never seen this and --- wow--- it is good. If Obama gets another term he is right about free speech, no more blogging about political stuff unless you want to be reformed. I'll only be posting recipes. And they'll all be one more way to make rice and beans.

Did it MY way said...

Should be on the front page of every newspaper in the world!

Enough said.

See Ya

Mayberry said...

I've passed that one on at least five times!

Kyddryn said...

Well written...and chock full of some very salient points. Sigh.

I have often wondered how someone so relatively unknown at the beginning of the race could have made that meteoric rise in such a short time.

Not that I consider it in the same league, but: A letter

(Yes, I'm taking liberties - but I was actually proud of this one)

Shade and Sweetwater,

Kyddryn said...

Whoops! I forgot to say...Good morning, Mister Hermit, sir!

Shade and Sweetwater,

HermitJim said...

Hey Kris...

Thanks fr coming by!

Hey Tony...
Couldn't agree with ya more, buddy!

Thanks for the visit!

Hey Mayberry...
Somehow I knew that you probably had already seen this one...

Good news on selling the Heep!

Thanks for coming by, my friend!

HermitJim said...

Hey K...
Good to see you this morning, lady! Very good letter as well! You are just a bundle of surprises, ya know?

Thanks for coming by, sunshine!

Lydia said...

Hi Jim,
Very nice find and so true. Nah, you will never see this on the news. The news is not as free as we most believe.

Your letter is very nice also. Good job!

Ha. What a laugh. Sounds like something coming from some big rich corporate guy. He's not a Republican is he? Ha.

HermitJim said...

Hey Anon 8:43...
I really don't know much about this guy, except what is included in the preface of the letter.

As far as his politics, there again I'm not sure what party, if any, he belongs to.

I do appreciate you dropping by today...!
