Fw: "We noticed"


This was written by Sherry Hackett, Buddy Hackett's widow......... "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.

I'm incredibly skeptical that this writer or anyone who takes this stupid letter to heart ever thought, hoped or prayed that a black president would unite the nation. At least not in any positive way.

And saying that the Obama administration is worse than 9/11? For shame.

What a relief! When people ignored all the actual abuses of power from the Bush administration and Republican Congress, I was worried they were all ignoring politics while we threw away our military, our economy, and our dignity.

But judging from this e-mail, even the most minute details of the current President's campaign will never be forgotten! We'll cure that memory loss yet!

Now if only we could do something about that pesky dementia.

Snopes is skeptical of this one.

Well we could all go on. Typical tantrum throwing wingtards bitching bc they didn't get ONLY their way. Even if Sherry Hackett wasn't already dead (DUH) - and no disrespect intended - it begs the question: why should I care what she thinks?

I mean: Sherry Hackett?? WTF?

Anyway, all of it is really pathetically stupid, but I have to comment on this one:

"You have attempted to make our protests seem isolated and insignificant. Until your appointment, Americans had the right to speak out."

BHO hasn't done one damn thing to make their idiotically ridiculous teabag rallies SEEM "isolated & insignificant." Geez these contards just love, love, love to victimize themselves. Get a clue, MORANS, your stupid rallies ARE isolated & insignifcant and mainly bc the rest of us really can't figure out WTF it is that you're shrieking about. YOU. DON'T. HAVE. A. COHERENT. MESSAGE.


And then for the parting sally: somehow BHO is preventing them from "having the right to speak out." Like: HOW is BHO doing that? Seems to me that you jerkwads are out there yelling and screaming at every opportunity, plus bringing loaded guns to town halls where the POTUS is speaking, and you have been, uh, hmmm, lessee... you've been allowed to be there with no on stopping you.

Let's not get into how, when W was Pres, Democrats were either NOT allowed into the hall where he was speaking, or they were rapidly hustled out by security for WEARING A T SHIRT.

Ugh. 'nuff said. but: shaking head... Sherry Hacket???

Rightwingers bitch about BHO designating 9/11 as a National Day of Service. What's wrong with that?

During the whole W admin conservatives shouted about "supporting the troops," which just meant the troops got sent to their peril in trumped up wars to enrich W, Cheney & their fat cat friends. But lefties were supposed to STFU in the name of the much vaunted troops.

On 11/8/09, suddenly the troops no longer were relevant and worth anything to the right anymore, so I note with disdain that on 9/11/09, conservatives had nada to say about supporting the troops or whatever. And 9/12/09 was dedicated to conservatives whining about me, me, me, ME!!!

Self-absorbed idiots.

I never said this so many years ago. But the feeling continues all these years later....I'm really uncomfortable with the whole "reverence for 9/11" thing. People seem to feel a lot of pride in country whenever 9/11 is mentioned. They call it patriotism, but it doesn't seem to be that exactly. There is a worshipfulness that is just so bizarre. I know I'm not the only one who is embarrased that some two-bit terrorists could have attacked us so dramatically. But embarrasment is my strongest feeling from that day.

I feel some discomfort, too, about the whole 9/11 reverence, which, frankly, now that the W Admin is gone, seems to be thankfully dwindling away. Honoring the dead and safety officers who worked heroically is good, but...

IMHO, though, 9/11 has mainly been used as a tool to frighten duped contards into thinking that only Republicans can keep them safe. And that's even more vile.

If we move further away from the reverence factor around 9/11, I'm all for it. It's been a manipulative meme for too long.
