Poll of the Day: Do You Think Barack Acted Appropriately During the Pirate Situation?

As I said in a post earlier, I think Barack got the job done appropriately and quickly.  I even went so far as to give him the prestigious “Conservative Journal Seal of Approval” honor!  Big deal, I know.  But what do you think?  Vote in today’s poll to see where you stand in comparison to the rest of Conservative Journal readers.

Thanks for participating!

The Conservative Journal Seal of Approval: Barack Obama

That’s right readers, Barack Obama receives The Conservative Journals very first “Seal of Approval” distinction.  Isn’t it ironic that some one who I very rarely have anything at all positive to say about wins the first of these coveted awards?

Anyway, Barack acheived this great honor with his surprisingly quick action regarding the Somali pirates taking Captain Richard Phillips hostage.  Though Barack was not the one that actually gunned down the scallywags, he did OKAY the sniper’s “extermination” of the motley crew.  The shoot out resulted in the death of 3 of the 4 pirates, while the lone survivor suffered serious injuries and is now in custody.  It’s truly a miracle that everyone on the hijacked ship made it alive.  That should teach those swashbucklers to live us alone!

Good job Barack!  Hopefully you can do more things worthy of this honorary distinction.

Thanks for reading!

Also, at the start of this hostage situation, many of us had our doubts on what action our dear Prez would take.  Though I am pleased he got the job done quickly, a cartoon was e-mailed to me during the days of speculation, and I think it’s too clever to not post it.  This is from Dennis “Bones” Evers:

Thankfully, this wasn't the case during the weekend's events.

If you have any cartoons you have made, or some you think are great, please send them in!  I will be sure to post everything that I receive, as long as it’s appropriate.  Of course, I have a very broad sense of what’s appropriate, so it’s probably fine.

Thanks for reading!
