Yes, folks, this has made the rounds for the last couple of years and may not be new to you, but it’s worth repeating again today…especially in light of the latest Obamacare mandate requiring insurance companies to provide “free” contraceptives to all employees; even for those who work for religious charities, hospitals and institutions, completely disregarding the First Amendment.
Lou Pritchett, former executive for Procter & Gamble, did pen this letter, and told Snopes that even though he submitted it to the NY Times as an op-ed, he said they neither acknowledged it nor published it. Yet, it’s received world-wide attention due to the popularity of the message.
Here is his never-published letter:
Dear President Obama:
You are the 13th 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.
As is said in many places, “hilarity ensues” (h/t Mediaite):
Frances Martel does a fabulous write-up about it, and I couldn’t have said it any better, so here it is direct from the Mediaite post:
“Are you offended?” O’Reilly asked Harpootlian, who replied that he was not, but that he found the fact that Republicans had “no outreach to African Americans” a problem “in a state where we have an African-American Republican Congressman.” “Adding insult to injury, this debate ignoring Martin Luther King’s birthday!” he added, which made O’Reilly ask who was ignoring the debate and why. The Republicans, Harpootlian replied, because “no one has raised any issue with Fox about it being appropriate or inappropriate.”
One of this country’s best heroes, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, appeared on Bill O’Reilly tonight not only to promote his new book, “American Sniper,” but to tell the tale of his experiences in the Middle East as the most sucessful American sniper, as well as his convictions of his accomplishments. He not only performed so well to save the lives of his fellow military men & women, but also the innocent Iraqi men, women and children, against what he calls (as well as most others do) “savages;” savages who would rape, murder, and torture their fellow countrymen and women in the name of their “god.”
I think Bill O was a bit out of line in his questioning of Kyle, pressing him on his conviction that what he had done was the right thing. In the end, however, Kyle acquitted himself quite well for this interview.
You don’t agree with Kyle? Sucks to be you, but he did what his country asked him to do, and I think he did an out-freaking-STANDING job as a SEAL. America is a safer country because of men like him.
This is a delicious follow-up to yesterday’s segment on O’Reilly, where Laura interviewed Florida Congressman Allen West on his thoughts of Cong. Maxine Waters saying Barack is doing the black community a disservice. Apparently Cong. Charlie Rangle watched that exchange and had his own opinion of what West had to say. It started out typically adversarial, but once Rangle started going back to the “blame Bush” and “tea party” talking points, Laura took it up a notch or two…. or twelve.
Loved it! Folks like Rangle and Sharpton hate it when they’re called on being members in good standing in the race pimp industry. Good on you, Laura! Bill would have been too soft on shyster Rangle.
And oh, Mr. Rangle…sexist much? Laura is Bill O’s pretty “secret weapon?” You’re a toad.
