Obama's cool head in a crisis — asset or growing liability?

US President Barack Obama walks from the West Wing to Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House on August 29, 2014 in Washington, DCHe doesn’t bluster and he doesn’t strut and President Barack Obama certainly isn’t panicking, though he admits it feels like the world is falling apart. With world crises bursting around him and political opponents apoplectic, Obama has yet to lash out in response, and refuses to act on anyone’s timetable but his own. With Islamic State radicals dug into a caliphate in Iraq and Syria, and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s shadow ever lengthening over Ukraine, Obama is shrugging off a whirl of hostile news cycles and political attacks on his leadership. A burst of honesty on Syria put the president in a new fix —- and raised the stakes for his trip to the NATO summit and Estonia beginning Tuesday.
