As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Brooks: Obama Has a Manhood Problem

New York Times columnist David Brooks declared Sunday that President Mompants has “a manhood problem in the Middle East.”

From an appearance on Meet the Press:

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, somebody like Putin?

I think a lot of the rap is unfair. But certainly in the Middle East, there’s an assumption he’s not tough enough.

Uhh, just in the the Middle East?

Brooks’ comment strikes directly at an Obama problem that concerns not only the president’s toughness, but his worldview. Obama harbors the typical assumption of liberals that when it comes down to it, we’re all just people and we all want the same things.

Obama mompantsActually, people in the rest of the world often want very different things than we want. Moreover, they’re willing to get in the ring and fight for them, and they’re not particularly interested in boxiing according to Marquess of Queensberry Rules.

Funny how Obama assumes the worst about his opponents – and will bring a gun to a knife fight – when his adversaries are Republicans, but not when they’re overseas political thugs. Politics – now that’s war for Obama. This administration is more likely to negotiate with Bashar Assad than John Boehner.

NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd, you’ll note, goes on in the video to reveal that internally, within the White House, questions about Obama’s manhood are feared. Feared, I assume, as a political matter, not because of concern about his effectiveness as commander-in-chief.

  1. Isn’t David Brooks the “Faux Conservative” who was so impressed early on in the Regime with the perfect crease in Obama’s trousers?
    Maybe it takes one to know one.
    I laughed out loud when I read that and loved Lt. Col. Peter’s reaction to it.

  2. DavidBrooks! NewYorkTimes! someone find me some smelling salts!

    J.Curl claims Michelle is a conniving b**ch and now D.Brooks claims Barack is simpering wuss, and C.Todd says the WhiteHouse is worried that America questions the manhood of the Preezy.
    Ah, the Preezy; champion of the gay and confused, drawer of lines with disappearing ink, afraid of firearms, afraid of his wife!, and afraid of Woodward, Putin, Limbaugh, Palin, the tea party, the NRA, cattle ranchers, senior citizens, environmentalists, billionaires, Cruz, Texans, Sheriff Joe, the military, and me and you.

  3. Not sure what ‘hood I should be concerned with over Obama’s “leadership” style, but he can’t even negotiate with Republicans on domestic issues. He just stomps his foot and shuts down the government if he doesn’t get his way.

  4. Sorta related, from an interview with Alan Dershowitz before his retirement….

    Prominent Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz offered words of praise for former student Ted Cruz in a new interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer:

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas): “Off-the-charts brilliant. And you know, liberals make the terrible mistake, including some of my friends and colleagues, of thinking that all conservatives are dumb. And I think one of the reasons that conservatives have been beating liberals in the courts and in public debates is because we underestimate them. Never underestimate Ted Cruz. He is off-the-chart brilliant. I don’t agree with his politics.”

    But the retiring Dershowitz couldn’t similarly evaluate another Harvard Law alumnus:

    There was also the Harvard Law student who couldn’t get into a Dershowitz class despite multiple attempts: Barack Obama.

    “Twice because the computer kept him out,” Dershowitz said. “It wasn’t my fault.”

    • Obama is a “glitch”.
      One would think that as president of the Harvard Law Review for two years, he would more than qualify to get into the Dershowitz class. Who am I kidding …he wasn’t qualified then and he’s not qualified now.

    • BTW… where the Hell are ‘Barack Hussein Obama’s’ “college records”? (-I know, stupid question because Im a ‘racist’ asking to see Obama’s “college records”)
      –How does one “hide/retact” ones ‘college records’? Im just curious because maybe someday I will want to run for office and I do not want people to see my “college records” from the late 1990s… Who do I need to call/hire to “hide” my “college records”???

  5. The closest advisors to the President have always been strong women…..his grandmother, his wife, Valerie. He is overshadowed by their maternal dominance. In the civilized, educated world, this is not a problem. In the rest of the world, it is. Call it the weenie factor. Unfortunately, he has it.


  6. Barry Soetoro was just another run of the mill ‘choomer’ from Hawaii until he settled on the Mainland and became Barack Obama, the community organizer, in Chicago.

    IMO, Barry is still the unaccomplished Barry Soetoro from Oahu in his own mind. He met up with a couple of Chicago women, Valjar and MOOchelle, who crafted his image and sold it to powerful Black kingmakers. His rise was meteoric but there was no ‘there’ there, His forte is, and always will be, community organizing ala Saul Alinsky. It’s in his blood.

    When Barry from Oahu meets up with world leaders, he has to pinch himself to remind himself that he is one of them. He is in awe of them, yet he expects to be admired and treated like royalty because he ‘won’ and he has the title of POTUS to prove it.

    Barry from Oahu is only qualified to do one thing: demonize his domestic enemies in Congress and the Republican party.
    His role as leader of the Free World is only ceremonical. His name tag at various international summits, etc. identifies him as President of the United States of America. He votes ‘present’.

    • Your third paragraph states it nicely Girly1.
      The world leaders are no longer in awe of the president of the United States of America.
      Rather, they are questioning the ignorance of the American People to have elected him in the first place.
      And then again.

      They smell weakness, and they are not far off the mark.

  7. Look at that picture, folks. He’s throwing like a girl while wearing mom jeans. Exhibit A.

    His man card should have been yanked a long, LONG time ago.

  8. Better to have a woman for POTUS who shoots rather than wrestles bears, doesn’t wear mom jeans and has spectacularly functional ovaries than a man with no testicles.

  9. Another thing:

    This epicine is more than willing to chin-wag with the Iranian mullahs, even though it’s clear the mullahs are negotiating in bad faith strictly to run out the clock while they get the bomb. Obama is evidently too naive to pick up on this.

    I suspect–and this admittedly a guess–that Obama will negotiate with rogue leaders because those leaders will tell him what he wants to hear, even when it’s blatantly obvious that they’re acting in bad faith. Obama doesn’t care about that: he’s hearing what he wants to hear, so he’s in his happy place.

    “Those nasty Republicans”, however, are going to tell Obama, quite candidly, but in GOOD faith, a lot of stuff he doesn’t want to hear. Obama doesn’t like that: it takes him out of his happy place.

    And that, I think, is part of the reason King Stompyfeet so willing to sit down with bad actors on the world stage, while refusing to give domestic dissenters the time of day. The bad guys know exactly how to butter him up, and have no qualms about lying to him to advance their interests. The GOP, meanwhile, is trying to tell the truth, in order to advance the interests of the United States as a whole.

    The problem is that Obama evidently doesn’t care for the truth. He’d rather listen to reassuring bald-faced lies, than listen to uncomfortable cold hard facts.

  10. I read an article a while back that Nobama frequented the bathhouses of Chicago quite often. Now if memory serves me correctly, isn’t it the gay blades that usually frequent the bath houses? Hmmmmmmmm!

    Semper Fi

  11. When has Obama’s manhood not been in question? Good to see it out of the closet.


    That said, I was out and about this weekend like many. The overwhelming use of mobile and twitter is amazing. It occurred to me that once voting comes to the internet, it will morph to the mobile phone or watch or eye wear, and campaigns will be on Twitter.

    Voting will be something that pops up on your screen — vote as you go for a coffee or before you check the nanny cam to see how your child or pet is faring alone in the house. Vote before you go to sleep. Heck, vote when your phone beeps in the middle of the night and you reach out and hit it. Pretty much how Hillary will react if her phone rings at 3AM.

  12. John, I voted for it, before I voted against it, Kerry is another piece of human excrement that needs to be flushed down the can.

    Semper Fi

  13. It was the same story with Obamacare:

    Obama to Iran: Sure! lets negotiate! What do you want? Everything??

    Obama to the GOP: NO NEGOTIATION!! You will accept obamacare. It is the LAW!

  14. Exactly! We just wrote about this. His world view is reflected in those ridiculous Lincoln Elementary school rules for ways to handle bullies. It’s all predicated on bullies being “buddies” or “friends” rather than thugs. It’s also pretty shocking in the way Obama cultists are freely exposing their philosophies to the world these days.

  15. “Obama harbors the typical assumption of liberals that when it comes down to it, we’re all just people and we all want the same things.”

    Oh, that’s not fair. He believes that some people want very different things: Democrats want people to be happy and healthy and comfortable and to have nice houses and get a good education and get equal pay and be able to “love whoever they want.” Republicans want people to be poor and miserable and not get health care and to lose their houses and not have good-paying jobs, and to be unequal and not get education, and they want granny pushed over a cliff.
