Desperate to prove that President Obama might be some combination of liberal, weak, politically correct, a terrorist appeaser, or perhaps even French (or at the very least an internationalist), a host of Right-wing political pundits (a.k.a. clowns) gleefully weighed in late last week on the Obama Administration's certain impending failure to act forcefully to bring the Maersk Alabama pirate attack incident, including the kidnapping of Captain Richard Phillips by the pirates, to a happy ending. As with all things "conservative," Obama rarely fails to disappoint, and this time was no exception. After Obama gave an order allowing Navy sharpshooters to shoot to kill the pirates who were holding Captain Phillips at gunpoint, the Navy sharpshooters did exactly that.
Watch what passes for conservative commentary these days (thanks to Daily Kos):
