Washington, Apr 21: New York Times Columnist David Brooks has said President Barack Obama’s policy was not tough enough and that he had ‘manhood problems’.
The statement from Brooks came, saying that Obama had such problems when it came to handling and dealing with leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Brooks elaborated on Senator Bob Corker’s earlier comments on the show Fox News Sunday that Obama is creating an air of permissiveness with regards to Russia.
According to Washington Post, Brooks said he wondered if Obama is strong enough to stand up to somebody like Assad or Putin.
He felt that a lot of the rap is unfair, but certainly in the Middle East there is an assumption that he’s not tough enough.
NBC’s Chuck Todd agreed to it plaintively, citing that it is rhetoric internally among lawmakers that the President’s rhetoric isn’t tough enough, the report added. (ANI)
