As a sign of his obvious anger and disgust, Obama has ignored my multiple facebook friend requests. Apparently my message, “Yes, we can be friends” has been met with an emphatic “No, we can’t.”



According to a CBS News report, President Obama has decided on a “new strategy” in Afghanistan, planning to “send a lot more troops…and keep them there long term.” Coincidentally, his strategy sounds sounds similar to Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s request for 40,000 new combat troops in Afghanistan. 


The US will deploy a total of 100,000 troops to sunny Central Asia by the end of next year.


No doubt, the President is anticipating backlash from voters and political entities across the spectrum. Democrats will accuse him of following in the footsteps of George Bush II. Republicans will accuse him of following in the footsteps of George Bush II. George Bush II will accuse Obama of making fun of his idea, then stealing his idea and not giving him any credit for it. 


King Solomon will likely use the opportunity to promote his new book, “Ecclesiastes,” citing his work on “there’s nothing new under the sun” and “everything is meaningless, a chasing after the wind” as especially relevant to the discussion.


Obama could see all that coming. But there’s one startling source of critique that has blindsided him like a freight train at full-speed loaded with the lead of truth — my facebook page.

Exactly two weeks ago, I posted this prediction about the outcome of his “long and careful deliberation” about the deployment of more troops to Afghanistan (Props to Kelly for the election timing nuance.):

Obama was so shocked and angered that I, a seasoned political analyst, could see where his “new strategy” was headed two weeks before it was announced that he refused to comment on my status update.

As a sign of his obvious anger and disgust, Obama has ignored my multiple facebook friend requests. Apparently my message, “Yes, we can be friends” has been met with an emphatic “No, we can’t.” 


It seems that the White House has been ordered to not follow my twitter feed.

Don’t worry, America. This freight train of truth will keep rolling. Being shunned by our Commander in Chief is a price I’m willing to pay for my insightful  140 character political commentaries.
