“WE NOTICED”

 

 

President Obama:

Today I read of your administrations’ plan to  re-define September 11 as a National Service Day. Sir, it’s time we had a talk………

During your campaign, Americans watched as you  made mockery of our tradition of standing and crossing your  heart when the Pledge of Allegiance was spoken. You, out of four people on the stage, were the only one  not honoring our tradition.

YES, “We noticed.” 

During one of your many speeches, Americans heard you say that  you intended to visit all 57 states. 
We all know that Islam, not America has 57  states.

YES, “We noticed.” 

When President Bush leaned over at Ground Zero and gently  placed a flower on the memorial, while you nonchalantly  tossed your flower onto the pile without leaning  over.

YES, “We noticed.” 

Every time you apologized to other countries for America  ‘s position on an issue we have wondered why you don’t share our  pride in this great country. When you have heard foreign leaders  berate our country and our beliefs, you have not defended us. In  fact, you insulted the British Crown beyond belief.

YES, “We noticed.” 

When your pastor of 20 years, “God-damned America ” and said  that 9/11 was ” America ‘s chickens coming home to roost”  and you denied having heard recriminations of that nature, we  wondered how that could be. You later disassociated yourself  from that church and Pastor Wright because it was politically  expedient to do so.

YES, “We noticed.”

When you announced that you would transform America ,  we wondered why. With all her faults, America is the  greatest country on earth. Sir, KEEP THIS IN MIND, “if not for   America and the people who built her, you wouldn’t be sitting in  the White House now.” Prior to your election to the highest  office in this Country, you were a senator from Illinois and  from what we can glean from the records available, not a very  remarkable one.

YES, “We noticed.” 

All through your campaign and even now, you have surrounded  yourself with individuals who are basically unqualified for  the positions for which you appointed them. Worse than that, the  majority of them are people who, like you, bear no special allegiance, respect, or affection for this country and her  traditions.

YES, “We noticed.”

You are 9 months into your term and every morning millions  of Americans wake up to a new horror heaped on us by you. You seek  to saddle working Americans with a health care/insurance  reform package that, along with cap and trade, will bankrupt  this nation.

 

 

YES, “We noticed.”

 

 

We seek, by protesting,  to let our representatives know that we are not in favor of  these crippling expenditures and we are  labeled “un-American“,”racist”, “mob”. We wonder how we are supposed  to let you know how frustrated we are. You have attempted to  make our protests seem isolated and insignificant. Until  your appointment, Americans had the right to speak  out.

YES, “We noticed.”

On September 11, 2001 there were no Republicans  or Democrats, only Americans. And we all grieved together and  helped each other in whatever way we could. The attack on 9/11  was carried out because we are Americans. 
 
And YES, “We noticed.” 

There were many of us who prayed that as a black president you could help unite this nation. In six months you have done  more to destroy this nation than the attack on 9/11. You have  failed us.

YES, “We noticed.”

September 11 is a day of remembrance for all  Americans. You propose to make 9/11 a “National Service Day”.  While we know that you don’t share our reverence for 9/11, we  pray that history will report your proposal as what it is….a  disgrace.

 

 

YES, “We noticed.”

 

 

You have made a mockery of  our Constitution and the office that you hold. You have  embarrassed and slighted us in foreign visits  and policy.
 
YES, “We noticed..”

 

 

We have noticed all these things. We will deal with you. When Americans come together again, it will be to remove  you from office.

Take notice.
 
If you agree with this please  pass it on.
