Greg Lewis claims Barack Obama is a “beta male”.
With his "we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist" opening to the world’s dictators, the President is exhibiting classic beta male behavior, in essence rolling over on his back and exposing his throat to them to make sure they know he has no intention of challenging their authority.
Of course, the problem is that he’s not simply exposing his throat, he’s exposing America’s collective throat, sending the message that he’s a typical beta male intent on submitting to all the alpha male leaders around the world, and damn the consequences
This could also explain why he let Pelosi/Reed lead on HealthCare and the Stimulus.
In software a “beta” is a version that is feature complete but needs testing. That describes Obama very well. Unfortunately, “beta testing” should have been done as Governor or Senator before unleashing his bugs on the world.
