I dislike Obama, believe he is bad for the country, and wish he wasn’t President.
I believe many, if not most, here share my view.
I insist my view is based on intellectual honestly based on Obama’s views and what I have seen so far of his Presidency.
I won’t bend over and fake trying to prove I have an open mind and I can praise the man. I’ll praise him when I believe he deserves particular praise.
In the pirates incident, Obama did the very minimal any President would do. Or any small town sheriff in a hostage situation.
I don’t give him any particular credit for doing his job by allowing the military to do theirs. Not allowing the military to do what was necessary would have been unimaginable.
But after those three shots, and the rescue, he stopped. The pirates are still operating.
He has acted in a manner that IMO stops well short of deserving any praise- yet. Maybe the continuning piracy will force his hand.
