In other happenings, Pope Francis today tried to talk sense to the world by denouncing the “scourge of hunger” and “immense wastefulness.” He went on to pray for peace all around the world and did so like a boss. Albeit, an extraordinarily humble boss, but nevertheless.
And, in that spirit, New York Times columnist David Brooks thinks the president’s foreign policy has a “manhood problem.”
On Meet The Press today, Brooks, said,
Basically since Yalta we’ve had an assumption that borders are basically going to be borders and once that comes into question if in Ukraine or in Crimea or anywhere else, then all over the world all bets are off. And let’s face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a — I’ll say it crudely — but a manhood problem in the Middle East. Is he tough enough to stand up to somebody like Assad or somebody like Putin? I think a lot of the rap is unfair but certainly in the Middle East there is an assumption that he’s not tough enough.
Borders are gonna be borders, except when they’ve been redrawn countless times throughout history. Sounds like someone has an unhealthy tough guy fetish.
What else is going on?
