WSJ Columnist Scolds Right Wing "Sour Grapes"

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Conservative Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens turns his sights on the far-right Obama haters in his column today, the ones who've been taking petty pot shots at the president since Sunday's news about the death of Osama bin Laden.

In his piece headlined, "Obama's Finest Hour," Stephens credits the president for the terrorist's execution. He also scolds fellow conservatives:

There's been a whiff of sour grapes in some of the right-wing commentary about the president's speech. Too much emphasis on the first-person pronoun, not enough credit to President Bush, and so on. It's unbecoming. If ever there was a doubt about just how American Mr. Obama is, Sunday's raid eliminates it better than any long-form birth certificate. This was his finest hour. It's for the rest of us, avenged at long last, to rejoice.
