Dear President Obama,
I write this letter in response to your May 12 visit to Georgetown University where, in a so-called religious setting, you urged conservatives and liberals to unify to fight poverty. Helping those in need is a cause that touches the heart of God, so I was a little encouraged until you took a potshot at Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, insinuating they could care less about the plight of the poor.
Your insinuation was offensive, revealing that even in helping others you cannot help insulting your political opponents. And obviously, biting your tongue doesn't work. What you really need is a change of heart. Until that happens, little else matters.
At Georgetown, you claimed to be a "Christian" to propagate your socialistic agenda to fight poverty, then simultaneously sucker punched Christianity when you bragged about your support of abortion and same sex marriage. You'd be much more respected if you'd drop the whole "Christianity" thing and admit what you really believe. If you insist you are a true believer, then try the Bible. It'll fundamentally transform your life when it fills you with the kind of hope and change that has nothing to do with government.
Truth is, the income inequality gap has widened over the past six years, pumping more taxpayer money out of wallets and into the bottomless pit of Washington. According to a January 7, 2014 report in the Washington Times, the poverty level under your watch broke a 50-year record. Rail on income inequality all you wish, but "a record 47 million Americans receiving food stamps, about 13 million more than when he [you] took office" is nothing to brag about. Maybe it's time for your party to drop its income inequality obsession and join with conservatives to focus on policies which help every American reach their potential.
It seems that deep within you burns a bitterness toward those with whom you disagree, likely derived from spending too much time with certain friends, mentors and associates like Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers and Pastor Jeremiah Wright. When we surround ourselves with that kind of negativity, little good follows. That, coupled with a core belief that America must pay reparation for past mistakes in perpetuity leads to the kind of anti-Americanism Pastor Wright espoused the first Sunday after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks when he said, America should be damned, not blessed, getting what she deserved when her chickens came "home to roost."
