    Mr. Obama… It is time for your grip on this nation to come to an end

    President Obama,

    I write to you from the flyover state of Wisconsin where we are currently embroiled in a recall election of our republican governor. I am sure you are aware of the consequences of the election because you have sent forth your political cronies in terms of the labor union thugs who have descended on the state in favor of your policies.
    You are not a leader. There is no proof that you have or ever will lead our nation in anything. Right now you are trying to become a re-elected politician. You did well in the 2008 election. Since then, what have you done? You passed an unpopular healthcare bill that is currently in the process of being overturned at the U.S. Supreme Court. You increased our debt by 4.2 Trillion dollars in 3 years for wasteful green energy projects.

    You LIED to the American Public about shovel ready jobs. The money you allocated for jobs was spent on special interest and crony projects. The initial stimulus that you promised was supposed to go to jobs. Where are they? Solyndra???? One hundred fourteen other wind energy projects nationwide financed by the federal government all gone bankrupt. Nothing reported by the mainstream media of NBC, CBS, and ABC. Chris Mathews is finally realizing his mistake of promoting you as the next coming of the savior. He no longer has a tingle up his leg. YOU ARE NOT A LEADER! You will or already have led this nation into the abyss.

    It is time for your grip on this nation to come to an end. I would welcome an alternate on the democrat side to face the republicans. Just to make it fun. It is going to be a landslide like nothing this country has ever seen before. No one is on your side, your wife is booed at sporting events. The small percentage of support for you is from ignorant blacks who support one of their own and extreme liberals. I may sound racist, but it is the truth, your base is now race driven and socialist idealogs. It is only January and you are already in full campaign mode. Past Presidents have waited until summer. Are you that worried or are you finally realizing what you are good at. Yes you are a good campaigner (community organizer) and you should be worried about your prospects.

    This country was blindsided 4 years ago, but we have seen the error of our ways. We will not allow you to transform us into the socialist Europe that you envision.
