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



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 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


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

Limbaugh's, Hannitys, O'Reillys 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.

Lou Pritchett

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.
