Strong vs weak American presidents
Original post made by Michael, Southgate, on Feb 1, 2011
Barack Obama is feckless. Most people, around the world, could care less what he has to say in a crisis. He is like Jimmy Carter. He cannot seem to take a stance, and defend it. Slicing and dicng is not leadership. We deserve better, and so does the world.
I don't think Barack Obama knows what he really believes in. He is a thin personality, always looking to get elected, then re-elected. He lacks grit. He was nearly silent, when the Iranian people went out to the streets, then got crushed. Now he seems to want something, but it is not clear what he wants, other than for everybody to get along.
Does anybody have clue what he is willing to stand up for?
