Little Green Footballs to Rightbloggers: Chill!
Charles Johnson of the war-on-terror-watching blog Little Green Footballs tells critics of President Obama to cool it over the resolution of the pirate hostage crisis.
President Barack Obama is the Commander in Chief of the US armed forces. I certainly don’t agree with a lot of his policies, but I’ll be damned if I won’t — at the very least — respect the office and give him congratulations when it’s deserved. And when the US military succeeds in a critical mission, the CinC deserves congratulations.
There is way too much mean-spiritedness in modern politics, and I for one am totally sick of it. And disappointed in those few LGF lizards who can’t find it in themselves to be gracious and say, “Well done.”
Take a step back from the brink, folks. Oppose Obama’s policies all you like, but be the loyal opposition, not a bunch of ranting haters. The Internet already has more than enough of those.
Johnson, who runs the most successful terror-watching blog, has been buffeted by fringe criticism over his occasional statements of support for the president’s foreign policy.
