Has Obama got the right sort of spine?

No idea if this story about how the pirate action was handled is true or not, but it rings true.

Despite the Obama administration’s (and its sycophants’) attempt to spin yesterday’s success as a result of bold, decisive leadership by the inexperienced president, the reality is nothing of the sort. What should have been a standoff lasting only hours — as long as it took the USS Bainbridge and its team of NSWC operators to steam to the location — became an embarrassing four day and counting standoff between a ragtag handful of criminals with rifles and a U.S. Navy warship.
The vibe fits. That's all that's important.

Anyway, the SEALS were only shooting at plastic pirates.
