Obama devises strategy to degrade and defeat the enemy (no, not ISIS)

“We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air….”

We shall fight on social media.

Yep, the commander in chief has mounted a full frontal assault on the enemy — the enemy in this case being recalcitrant Republicans and the warfare taking the form of a hashtag campaign.

Faced with opposition to his Syrian refugee resettlement plan by more than half of all state governors, including one Democrat, the president launched the hashtag #RefugeesWelcome in a post to the all-new White House Facebook page last night.

Clicking on the link at the end of the text passage in the post takes you to a page at the White House website that claims, oxymoronically, that “we remain steadfastly committed to that plan because it is consistent with our values and our national security.”

How bringing 10,000 refugees inside our borders is in the national security interest of the nation needs further explanation. I’m sure the families of American soldiers slain by two al Qaeda terrorists who were admitted to the country as Syrian refugees would be interested in knowing.

As for Obama’s hashtag war, I can’t recall hearing “Hail to the Chief” played for him as he entered a venue, but if it was, I hope it was played on a kazoo.
