Glad he is back safe.
Now what does fox news have to say?... Obama kept a cool head now the captain is back safe. The Right in this country had decided to use this incident to make Obama look weak, they tried to pressure him into over action that would lead to the captains death so they could use it against him.Though the credit for the rescue should go to the Navy, you can be sure if it had turned bad the talking heads and radio slobs on the right would have blamed Obama. Now lets see if they will give him credit or finally ( and conveniently ) admit this was not entirely in his hands. The attempt to make this a Obama's fault by so many in the media was pathetic
