The "I hate Obama letters" because I can...

Obama: How can he even run for president?

Letter by Lee Owens of Post Falls: I keep hearing Obama this and Obama that. Just who is Obama? Definitely not all American. With a foreign father (not American) how can he even run for the presidency of the United States? No one even heard about him until Oprah donated one million dollars to his campaign. His genealogical lineage connects him to everyone except Jesus Christ himself. Maybe when he gets done "having a dream and putting a chicken in every pot" he'll walk on water for all us common people. (Second coming of Christ or the coming of the anti-Christ?) P.T. Barnum once said, "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."

Obama: Candidate hates White America

Letter from Norman O'Daniel of Hayden: Democrats (liberals and socialists) never cease to amaze me. Just when you think the Democrats (liberals and socialists) could not do any worse than Hillary for president; they come up with Obama. In my opinion he hates America, white America. Obama will not salute the flag; i.e., place his hand over his heart when the flag passes or wear a flag lapel pin. Could that be a conservative plot? Some of his friends, mentors and associates are white American haters; e.g. Louis Farrakhan and Mr. Wright. Next the Democrats (liberals and socialists) will try to pass an amendment to the Constitution where a foreign individual can run for U.S. President. Then they will be able to run Putin for president. By the way, I am not a Republican, did not vote for Bush, believe Senator McCain to be a closet liberal, and I do not hyphen my name (even secretly.)

Published in the Coeur d'Alene Press 11 April 2008.


The Spokesman-Review put out a set of ethics for those who post to the S-R blogs such as at, "A Matter of Opinion" and "Huckleberries on-line." The above letters (reprinted accurately) would not have passed the "flamer and troll test" given the hysteria, angst, outright racism and name calling; if published on either above-mentioned blogs. But, it is also just as obvious that the CDA Press has no such standards.

So a response to both individuals begins as follows:

  • To run for president, the candidate need only be born in the United States. To my understanding, Senator Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, which qualifies him as American even if he did spend part of his childhood in foreign countries.
  • His genealogical lineage that Lee Owens jeers at comes from his mother's side of the family. And as Obama himself acknowledged, his distant cousin is Veep Dick Cheney.
  • Owens goes into overdrive in the flame dept. when he either wants to perceive Obama as the second coming of Christ or even the anti-Christ. And then finishes up his awkward letter with a bow to P.T. Barnum. So where has Owens spent his last 8 years? Willfully being fooled by GW, I take it.
  • Does "White America" own the U.S. Flag? Is "White America" the only people capable of fighting and dying in this country's wars?
  • Just how many times have I noticed "White America" on the parade route during the 4th of July parades fail to salute even a single passing U.S. Flag.
  • A bigger deal must be made out of a black man wearing or not wearing a flag pin than most Americans who probably do not?
  • Perhaps O'Daniel hasn't considered that an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would permit a non American residing in the U.S. of A. to run for president would first qualify Arnold Schwarzenagger as presidential material. And he is a Republican.
  • So who did O'Daniel vote for, anyway?

A far better read is found in the Opinion pages of the Spokesman-Review where Harold Meyerson's republished "Old-fashioned economy Trade in the U.S. is not geared toward helping our country," was originally published in the Washington Post. He is the editor-at-large of the American Prospect and the L.A. Weekly. Where he discusses at length GW's trade policies and the damage those policies have done not only to this country's workforce but also to the people who come from Mexico as illegal alien workers. Yes, what is being done under the current administration. But never mind that, what Meyerson describes at length, let us froth at the mouth instead at ol' Obama, that scary "other." So what would these guys do if Obama actually became president?
