Obama’s Bad Policies Have Awakened America
Letter
I would like to give President Barack Obama a giant “Thank you!” I appreciate the opportunity to do this publicly.

Many years ago, as a junior high student, I remember enjoying a song in our music class about loving the United States of America. I remember singing out robustly – I really meant it. I have always loved this country and its wonderful promise of liberty.

Through the years, as I focused on raising children and earning money, I didn’t think so much about how lucky I was to be an American.

Then Sept. 11 happened. My daughter lived in Lower Manhattan; my husband was on his way to the Pentagon that morning. As the day went on, I found that they were both safe. I remember seeing members of Congress on television singing “God Bless America” – Democrats and Republicans singing together. The one good thing about that awful attack for me was the awakening that happened. I was feeling once again grateful to be an American.

Likewise, the four years of Obama’s presidency have represented for me a further awakening. I realize again how much I love America and how grateful I am that this is my country. Obama with his power-loving, egocentric, America-hating ways has jarred me into a “proud to be an American” frame of mind. I want only to return our country to the grand promise that was launched in 1776.

I know I’m not the only American who feels this way. And I’m hoping the awakening that Obama reinforced will come to fruition with the election of Mitt Romney in November.
