The Obama administration has taken to #hashtagdiplomacy of late. Instead of having serious statements come from the campaigner in chief’s own mouth, or that of a credible senior official (no such thing in this administration) they’ve taken to people taking pictures of “leaders” holding up Twitter signs – a hashtag where real work should be done. I’m tired of it, I pay good money for my government and this isn’t enough.

So, here’s a hashtag for the White House and a credible spokesperson to bring the message:
No more pictures of a sad faced Michelle asking for “our girls back.” Really? I didn’t know Sasha was missing. You’d think the Secret Service would be all over that deal.
I’m also quite sure that Vladimir Putin was stunned by the photo that chastised his Crimea adventure. Boy, that taught him a lesson.
Real leaders do real things. Twitter is not a diplomatic tool. Boko Haram doesn’t give a fig about Michelle and her hashtag. They are the true face of radical Islam. Is the White House really so stupid as to believe that social media will impact these guys? I can hear it now, “Oooooh. We’d better release those slaves and apologize, Michelle has a pouty face.”
I may have come to the end of my trying to even pretend to be civil about the incompetent liars in the White House. I’m ashamed of their approach to diplomacy. It’s a bad joke and it’s getting worse every day.
