Does Hillsboro, Missouri have a 4th grade teacher named Kathleen Lyday who wrote a wonderful editorial on President Obama?

Mr. Obama: I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally. You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America. You are responsible to the citizens of the United States. You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.
I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe? Are you brain dead ? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?
Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?
Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia. You don't show Great Britain, our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia . How dare you, sir! How dare you!
You can't find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don't want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey . You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What's the matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.
You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.
What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members - on top of the $2.520 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven't said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn't! Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million - not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven't you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now.
I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you. I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.
Every Real American

What is scary is the thought of you actually teaching this diatribe to your students. You are taking GOP spin in lieu of factual materials and presenting this as facts. I hope your students are not involved in your personal political meanderings.
Would you like to be responsible for sending these now children, to their deaths by us ignoring the rest of the world and letting them fester in hatred for the USA until one of them drops the "dirty bomb" on us or releases poisons in our waters? Do we really want to send any more children into war?
Calling our President an idiot in a formal letter than you publish online is REALLY idiotic.
Christians follow the teachings of Christ and I doubt you are Christian by your attitudes about people beyond our borders. Closed minds present a segued scenario.
This teacher probably knowns what her rights are as an American citizen. If she is not scared of the president, why should you care what she says or dosn't say to him? As for the children, their parents have probably said plenty, so they don't have virgin ears. Kids are tougher than you think, and they probably have some opinions on the subject whether you want to believe it or not. And here we go again about being a Christian and being judged. Isn't that what you are doing to this teacher. God will judge her not a mere mortal.Isn't there a verse in the Bible about judging? Everyone forgets it when they are judging others they don't agree with though.
Booray,Just be happy we are not in ... where I don't know. I am a veteran and I'm not proud of the way the people of this country talk about President Obama. You know these commits are not just at Mr. Obama but the whole race of Black Americans. You are a teacher, Teacher have had a hard time with salaries long before Obama went to the White House ( can I still say White House since there are Black people living their?). I would not be suprise if their is a petition going a round to change the name of the House. Exhale Booray, lets pray we all survive this crisis. God Bless America.
What knuckle head labeled that a beautiful letter to President Obama? I guess you might think it's beautiful if you are a Conservative, or Republican, or Obama hater. How sarcastic and demeaning. I agree with the person who said the teacher was scary to be teaching youngsters with such an attitude. In her fervor to slam and lambast Obama she is willing to twist the truth and LIE! The worst part of this is that her poisonous penned article has been put out on the Internet to spread her misguided information, hate and lies. I imagine she is one of Russ Limbaugh biggest fans; her rhetoric is exactly the same muck that spews out of his trouble-making mouth.
These boards are full of hate-loving, lie spewing, anonymous cowards. Instead of wishing the BEST for America, they long for it's failure to make their "points". Winning or losing an election is no justification for their obstruction of our trying to mend the past failures to lead. They sicken me.
