Rev. Jesse Jackson called into question President Obama’s toughness this weekend in regards to his handling of the debt ceiling talks.
Obama, who has been criticized by many for compromising with the stalwart Republicans, struck a deal that helped the country avert a financial crisis.
Jackson, who spoke to Politico.com, said that the president is to trusting of Republicans when he shouldn’t be.
“He has a propensity to be trusting, on the side of reconciliation,” Jackson said to POLITICO. “He kind of underestimates how ideological these guys are and how determined they are to destroy him.”
