Apparently, The Corner's Jonah Goldberg and the Sizzler down the street's all-you-can-eat-buffet's Rush Limbaugh are in the middle of some kind of slap fight about whether or not Barack Obama derserves any credit for the U.S. Navy Seals' heroic take down of Captain Hook, Long John Silver and Willie Stargell last night.
From what I can gather, Goldberg thinks Obama deserves a tiny bit of credit for "approv[ing] the rescue" instead of threatening to sell the U.S. citizen hostage to his pirate captives as a peace gesture.
Rush Limbaugh, on the other hand, believes that Obama doesn't deserve any credit at all. And that this in fact proves Obama's a bad president somehow or other. And that the Sizzler waitress should bring him another pitcher of gravy for him to drink.
For the record, I think that they're both partially correct.
Obama deserves only a tiny bit of credit for doing the job we elected him to do. And Limbaugh should get some more gravy before he starts eating his fellow patrons.
