ABC Roundtable: "Is Obama Tough Enough?" (VIDEO)

George Stephanopoulos asked Sunday's ABC News Roundtable if President Obama was being "tough enough."

Former speechwriter Peggy Noonan argued that Obama's policy judgments, not his political skills, are behind decisions that upset some of his progressive supporters. Economist Paul Krugman responded that it was a strange time to call Obama weak, when he's about to pass health care reform: "He's actually getting stuff done now." Jake Tapper, the network's White House correspondent, said that what people want is for Obama to be clearer about what he wants from health care reform -- not tougher.
