    WE NOTICED

    Part 1
    Sherry Hackett, wife of the late Buddy Hackett, is a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat. I would think that many other Democrats share her position...

    "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 14 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.
