Raised by a woman and then married into a matriarchal society, President Obama values relationships more than progress. He goes along to get along because he was nurtured that way.
Now he is in the real world of manly politics and he is unsuccesful because there are no women dictators, female Muslim Chiefs, or European matriarchal societies. President Putin sneers at President Obama. And even Angela Merkel does not accept the President as a manly world leader.
I am not saying that women cannot be world leaders, my goodness , we have plenty of examples of great female leaders. My issue is that President Obama is a man and does not comport himself like one on the world stage. He is flexible and adjusting as a dutiful wife would be. How can other manly men trust him if he adjusts his brassiere instead of his jock strap?
Ladies, I am not saying that being raised by women is a handicap, we all love our mothers and are better men as a result of a good mother or a good wife. But stereotypes exist among men that men should act as men with each other and should not be pursuing relationships based on likabilty but more upon respect.
I have no doubt that President Obama is a man. He should act like one on the world stage.
