Barack Obama has a glass jaw. For many months last year, it was assumed that Mr. Obama would be too soft, or timid, to endure the attacks to come. “Obambi,” he was dubbed by a Chicago Tribune columnist. A parallel assumption emerged that the 46-year-old Mr. Obama was merely running in 2008 to sow good will for a campaign in 2012 or 2016. As it turned out, Mr. Obama has proven adept at deflecting punches, shrugging off criticism from opponents as “the same old politics.”
His soft brown eyes give a sort of "deer in the headlights" look, but he is not Obambi, he is like a pit bull with AIDS.
