Dear President Obama,



Dear President Obama,

Congratulations Mr. President. Once again you win over white bigots and other evangelical Tea Party goofs. Everyone has underestimated you since Day 1. Liberals are full of advice and conservatives… well, enough said.

The economy came back, the deficit is going down, America is producing more energy than we’re importing, gay men and women have been given new dignity and rights, you ended the wars as you said you would, and the Republicans are running for cover.

You are a smart, decent, compassionate levelheaded man. Your craven enemies have been proved to be hysterical liars. You will go down in history as great and every child with health care will bless your name forever.

You have been doing God’s work. Thank you.

With respect and love,

Frank Schaeffer

    Well said, Mr. Schaeffer.

    While I agree with most of what you have said, Mr. Schaeffer, I still profoundly disagree with the President’s refusal to push for the prosecution of those at the top who authorized and ordered real live human beings to be tortured since 9/11. My husband was a US Vietnam vet who survived torture. Dan suffered from his injuries, physical and emotional, until his death eight years ago. By allowing Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and the rest, to get away with what they have done, and what they have crowed about, there will be more torture, and worse torture, with more impunity.

    “Once again you win over white bigots and other evangelical Tea Party goofs.”

    You really have issues you need to work out.

    “America is producing more energy than we’re importing”
    This has nothing to do with Obama and has everything to do with fracking on private lands. Well, you can give Obama credit for not stopping it. I’ll give you that.

      We’re surpassing Saudi Arabia as the world’s #1 oil producer now.

    He might have won against the the Tea Party but he sure has not won them over.

    • Keene Point of View

      I think “win over” means “won against” in this case.

  • RedCeltic

    My feelings, exactly. Every child with brown skin will now realize that he or she, too, could be president or whatever he or she wishes to be. That is one part of his legacy that cannot be stolen through lies and manipulations.

    • Grady

      Pure propaganda. You know thats not true.

  • WannaB

    I concur!

    • Grady

      Frank, he has not ended the wars.
      And he may be planning more.

      • peich01

        Well, it depends on your definition of ending wars. And by your definition we are still technically at war with (North) Korea.

  • Grady

    Frank showed how to keep vindictiveness alive; even in victory.

    You have a lot of hate Frank.

    You always did, of course, but now its out in the open.

  • Grand1

    Thank you Frank. I hope you actually sent that to the President. He probably needs moral support as much as he needs a good software engineer right now. I agree that Obama will go down in history as a great President, great man and among the greatest African Americans in history. Jesus taught us to love God and love one another. Healing the sick through Obamacare is a truly Christian act. He is to be commended. Glad you wrote the letter and shared it with us.
