At the age of 69, one would think it’s too late to send a letter to Mr. Claus! This morning as I was crawling out of bed (that’s what I do anymore – crawl), there wasn’t any doubt in my mind that it was time to script a letter to that dear jolly little man who tries his best to bring joy to the little ones each holiday season.
Don’t know if you get the news from down here, so I thought I’d get you up to speed on what is, what was and what should have been. First of all, it’s been a —- of a year for all of us down here on “Ole Mother Earth,” you see!
It all started on January 21, 2009 when a man call Obama appeared on the scene with a sack full of promises and a teleprompter.
Along with the promises, came the raving reviews from CNN, NBC, MSNBC and other media stating that Mr. Obama was a man of his word, honest, respectable and extremely personable (whatever that’s suppose to mean.) In other word this smooth talkin’ man was an answer to our prayers.
But, I’m afraid the old saying once again showed its fangs, “if it’s too good to be true – it probably isn’t.” That has been the cause and effect from the Obama camp! Yep Santa, “we played with fire and darn sure got burned.”
What happened next, you’ll find hard to believe – we’re still shaking from Mr. Obama’s magic trick that he pulled out of his hat. It was a stimulus package wrapped up in fancy paper and ribbons, filled with mounds of fluff and amounting to about 800 billion dollars.
He actually convinced Americans that he’d do earth shaking reform with this money by creating jobs, helping homeowners,downsizing the government, improving education, removing earmarks, helping the farmer and the list goes on and on…
None of the above happened Santa – the story goes that a large part of the fancy, smancy stimulus package went to Freddie, Fannie, Acorn and other assorted Obamians. Seems Mr. Obama owed every Tom, Richard and Harry a favor!
Here’s a quick update – the loan modification or (HAMP) is a farce, been there done that personally and came up with a big zero. The government didn’t get even a tad smaller; its bloating up like a big overstuffed toad, the earmarks (whoa, need I say more,) and our voice doesn’t count for much in 2009.
But the kicker came Santa, when Mr. Obama appeared on TV (which he does a lot this days), did his soft shoe, threw in a bit of theatrics and gave us a bunch of sticks and stones. He tossed us high unemployment, loss of jobs, loss of homes, an exotic new program called “Cash for Clunkers,” which will bite us in the butt before 2010 goes to sleep – Santa the darn list just keeps growing.
Now there’s talk of a newfangled health bill that the House passed by a narrow margin. Funny thing is Mr. Claus, many of the Democrats are more than a little suspicious of this bill – first they haven’t had time to read it from cover to cover, second the actual cost of this bill is questionable and third these few wise Democrats are worried about job security.
Santa, Mr. Obama is full of excuses and reasons why – he always finds a guinea pig or someone to cremate. Americans aren’t exactly at ease with him at the helm and they’re plumb tired of being asked for more money to finance his pop sickle dreams.
He blames Republicans and uses Bush for his whipping post, growls about the conservatives, and insinuates that we are on the verge of being lazy. He informed our young they’d learn about volunteering or else (if they want higher education.) Don’t mind my kids volunteering; just don’t need the President of the United States meddling with me or my kids!
CNN, NBC, ABC and the big dog media icons are still hard at work throwing us tidbits and oohing and awing over the Democrats and their leader Obama, which is proving to be the biggest media smokescreen in history. How will they explain their stupidity?
So Santa, 2009 isn’t just a bit rocky, it is the year that will go down in history as totally disastrous from start to finish, everything that could go wrong has…
Oh yes, our dear Mr. Obama has elves too, called czars or maybe gophers would be a better fit, because they bob in and out of the White House without detection. Anyway, Mr. Obama invited the czars to play doctor and nurse in the Whitehouse. Hold on to your hat Santa; they get payed for playing house.
And then there’s this Pelosi person, sort of reminds me of the story the “Wizard of Oz” and the wicked witch of the North – don’t get me wrong Santa thought I saw her on a broom once but was wrong; it was a look alike Czar dressed up for Halloween.
Pelosi’s hangs behind closed doors with some powerful playmates, Dodd, Reid and Frank – think they play a poker game called “No Limit America Holdem.”
Okay Santa, lets get to the good stuff before you die of total boredom.
Would ya, could ya have Rudolph take a little detour and deliver a letter from Annie to the White House or better yet, hand deliver it to Mr. Obama.
Annie’s Wish List:
1. Jobs, Jobs and more jobs
2. Real help for homeowners – not this poorly administered HAMP thing
3. Someone needs to make a list of priorities for Mr. Obama (healthcare isn’t one of those at this time.) Troops, jobs, children’s education, our homes, retirement funds, food on the table are but a few the priorities.
4. Retrieve all our monies the Whitehouse has so graciously given to the greedy
5. Get Mr. Obama a new teleprompter – Bill Gates probably would be the man to contact for this…
6. Ask the Barry’s elves to take a long hike and come back when we actually need them and can afford their salaries
7. Give Mr. Obama a job description again – he’s lost his and doesn’t seem to know what an administrator should do…
In closing, President Obama we don’t care if you’re green, purple, white or black – that’s not our thing. We do care that you aren’t capable of making wise decisions for your country and your people. We didn’t hire a movie star or socialite to run this country; we thought we’d hired a good man.
Don’t be so offended when we ask for our voice back or question your inability to make decisions about our young men and women who are fighting as we speak to protect all of us. Bottom-line is this – you have yet to show America that you are capable of leading us and keeping our country safe! Barry if you had the audacity to write these two quotes below, shame on you!
“I don’t care whether you’re driving a Hybrid or SUV. If you’re headed for a cliff, you have to change direction. That’s what the American people called for in November and that’s what we intend to deliver. Mr. Obama the “keyword” here is direction!
Did you really say this – “I will cut taxes – cut taxes – for 95% of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes. Barry was this in a moment of weakness, while you were doodling and daydreaming? This once again, dear man is just a play on words, “Words are just words – it takes money to buy whiskey!”
If it’s possible; please remember all of the little children whose parents have lost their jobs, homes, and faith in our government. Santa, the big daddy and mommy would love to have some little token of hope in their stocking this year.
May God Bless Each and Everyone, As Always, Annie
