President Obama’s idiot fanbase has been utterly infatuated with his new Twitter account, hanging on his selective communiques as if sitting at the foot of Jesus himself. They worked themselves up into a frenzy of “awws” this weekend when Obama responded to a 5-year-old girl’s letter to him. Feast your eyes on the preciousness:
In case that’s not legible, it (apparently?) says: “Please stop war for our world, instead have a meeting. Give a speech to tell everyone they can marry who they want. Thank you.”
Obama responded, saying that agreed with her sentiments. Well, of course he does. The handwriting might suggest that this really did come from a kindergartner, but the text itself isn’t much less sophisticated than your average liberal argument. Sure, they pepper it with a lot of long, academic words and a lot of pontification about this study or that one, but it mostly comes down to the same thing. Change the world, no matter how absurd or ridiculous the goal. If young Yasmeen Faruqui had more time, she might have included “make the world cooler” and “end racism” to the agenda of her dream meeting. Oh, and “throw all the guns away.”
Faraqui probably doesn’t have a nuanced understanding of concepts like war and gay marriage, but that’s okay because Obama doesn’t either. Back when little Yasmeen was still in danger of being legally murdered inside the womb, Obama actually supported the traditional definition of marriage. That might surprise the little girl. She might also be surprised by the number of people who have been killed by Obama’s drone strikes. A lot of the people who voted for Obama might be surprised by those things as well.
Meanwhile, maybe the president would do well to spend less time fooling around on social media and more time doing his job. And while the advice he gets from random kindergartners is probably not worse than the advice he gets from Valerie Jarrett, he should probably start thinking about what kind of world he is creating. A world where terrorists can undo a decade of American military work with relative impunity. A world where the Supreme Court is getting ready to take an unprecedented bite out of state’s rights with little constitutional support. A world where Americans are losing their culture, security, and jobs so that illegal immigrants are well cared for.
Bill Clinton asked Obama if the POTUS account stayed with him or was passed down to the next president. Obama confirmed that it would be passed down. Whoever takes up the account next might want to think about deleting its history. Get rid of some of the more embarrassing pandering. Just go through, one by one, and scrape the account until its fresh and clean.
Sadly, erasing everything else he’s done won’t be quite that easy.
