Sam Prince wants Obama to fail!!

Sam Prince says he wants Obama to fail!! The Cairo Messenger has the entire article at . His views are just right of Attla the Hun. So I had to write this letter to the editor.

Sam Prince sounds like a little Limbaugh! I don’t think much of Rush Limbaugh but doesn’t Rush deserve some credit for the “I want Obama to fail” shrill? Some time ago I said Mr. Prince should give up caffeine and there for a while it looked like he’d taken my advice. But it looks like he’s fallen off the caffeine wagon. Sam Prince is back to seeing a socialist and communist behind every Bush!
I can’t see where President Obama and Vice President Biden flubbed (Sam’s word) their oath. In fact Chief Justice Roberts admitted he was the flubber. And to be technical about it, Roberts still got it wrong the second time. There is no “so help me God” at the end of the President’s oath, just as there is no religious test for public office. Our Constitution is very clear on this subject.
The thing that bothers me the most about this week’s article is its tone. Sam Prince sounds like a spoiled child throwing a temper tantrum when he doesn’t get what he wants. He sounds hateful, mean spirited and divisive. Mr. Prince has the right to his opinion, as does everyone in America. But implying that there are no Americans of African descent and calling President Obama’s mother a hippie supports my position that he is mean spirited and divisive. This tone is uncalled for in a public debate. Adults should be above this sort of thing.
I went back and checked on some of Mr. Prince’s past articles; the Roddenberry Library maintains copies of the Cairo Messenger all the way back to the turn of the 20th century. It makes fascinating reading. I recommend reading the articles from the 16th and 23rd of January 2008 both are entitled “What should we look for in presidential candidates?”
Sam Prince actually does a pretty good job of explaining the Constitution and how it applies to the office of the President. Maybe he should have reread those articles before he wrote this last one. In his article from January 16, 2008 he summed it up with “Our job as voters is to decide which candidates are most able to run for the job of president of the United States. That is not an easy job.” On January 23, 2008 he wrote “Shortly, we will be casting our ballots for the individual we think is the best candidate to represent our respective parties in the November general election.”
Well Mr. Prince we did that, we Americans voted and your guy didn’t win. It happens. In 2000 and 2004 my guy didn’t win either. I had to suffer through 8 years of Bush, but never ever did I or anyone else say “I want Bush to fail.” If our President fails our country fails. And that as they say is not an option.
Mr. Prince wants us to believe President Obama has some evil plan to turn America into a communist state or at best a Socialist Democracy. As weird as that sounds it is still Mr. Prince’s belief and he is entitled to it. He should give us proof, not petty and divisive comments. Our country and our world are going through rough times right now, the last thing we need is to push people’s buttons just to get a reaction. We need strong and insightful debate; these issues effect us not only as a nation but our children’s future.

And that why Sam Prince is Fucked Up like a soup sandwich!!
