    Obama’s Middle Eastern “manhood problem”

    Obama’s Middle Eastern “manhood problem”

    No one jumped to Obama’s defense when the charge was made

    http://youtu.be/cCI3UqVkroI

    David Brooks’ questioned whether Obama has a “manhood problem” in the Middle East.

    Note the reaction Chuck Todd. Not even a head shake of disagreement. Neither David Gregory nor the other panelists jumped to Obama’s defense.

    Agree, it is a problem of effective leadership not a lack of “manhood”. It was a lazy shorthand of the panelists to define it as such. Also in the clip, it is stated that “no one disagrees with Obama’s policies, just with his rhetoric” which is simply not true. The lack of leadership arises directly from the administration’s policies and actions. The empty rhetoric doesn’t help.

    Mr. Obama has concluded that even if there is a resolution to the current standoff over Crimea and eastern Ukraine, he will never have a constructive relationship with Mr. Putin, aides said. As a result, Mr. Obama will spend his final two and a half years in office trying to minimize the disruption Mr. Putin can cause, preserve whatever marginal cooperation can be saved and otherwise ignore the master of the Kremlin in favor of other foreign policy areas where progress remains possible.

    … notice that this sounds so much like a story that started with “I Won”

      Still would like to know what was meant when Putin was told that Obama would be more flexible after he was re-elected….. must be that no one would actually expect him to block Putin’s expansion plans…. One doesn’t merely occupy neighboring countries without having a plan.

    In 2008 the ever mundane and droll David Brooks was admiring the crease in Obama’s pants. Brooks (amongst others) is part of the problem, a sycophant and a guy who thinks because he writes for The New York Times he has special virtue and insight into the problems of the world.
