One of the perks of no longer working for the U.S. Army is that I can talk about my former boss — yes, that means you Obama.

I’m starting a new series on this site called “Obama is an Idiot”. I have no idea how often I’ll be posting to this series, and you’re free to contribute your own story by suggesting a topic.

Well, here goes.

Afghanistan – What the heck are you waiting for?

General Stanley McChrystal, Commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, as asked you for your help.

He wants an increase in troop levels (estimated at 40,000) to topple the growing insurgency in Afghanistan.

Rather than receive immediate help, it is constantly being discussed, and the General is even receiving backlash for speaking to the media.

And even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had the audacity to say this:

…recommendations to the president should go up the line of command. They shouldn’t be in press conferences.

Give me a break Pelosi. Ignoring your top General in Afghanistan is never a good thing to do, and I admire McChrystal’s resolve to not have this buried in the incompetence that us Americans call Congress.

Obama, give McChrystal what he needs now. No debates. No ifs. No ands. And no Bidens.

Accepting the Nobel Peace Prize

How in the world can a President win the (formerly) coveted Nobel Peace Prize when the nomination came after being in office for twelve days?

Here’s one opinion:

The short path to the Nobel Peace Prize: Party, go to meetings, skip church, release federal funding to pay for abortions in foreign countries, party some more.

Chairman Thorbjoern Jagland of the Nobel committee said this on why Obama won:

Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future.

In other words, let’s award the Nobel Peace Prize to something the President might do in the future.

Hell, if you award the President a prize on what he might do, you might as well give me a Pulitzer for writing for this blog. Why are you shaking your head? I could do it, and that’s all that matters.

Obama calls his winning a “Call to Action“. What he should have said is, “It’s a wake-up call that I should start doing crap before I get kicked out of office by the same people who helped elect me.”

Obama, here’s what you should’ve done: you should’ve said, “Thanks, but no thanks” to the Nobel prize. Give it to someone who has actually earned it (see the past tense in there?).

For accepting it and being “deeply humbled” by it, Mr. Obama, I must say, you are an idiot.
