JENNIFER RUBIN: Will Obama Repair His Wimp Image? “Frankly, it might be a good time for the president to battle his left flank and demonstrate some moxie, if he has it. The world and a vast number of centrists in America, not to mention conservatives, think he’s a wimp. This is his time to prove them wrong.”Expecting Obama to quit being a wimp is like asking Urkel to quit being a geek or Fat Albert to quit being fat. He is what he is.
