President Barack Obama is a "weak, weak president" and has allowed Russia and its President Vladimir Putin to become a powerful force, conservative commentator and author Michael Reagan told Newsmax TV.

During an interview Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show," Reagan said Obama's lack of leadership has led to the rise of America's Cold War foe.

"You find 37 percent of Republicans supporting Vladimir Putin," Reagan said, referencing a recent poll that found 37 percent of Republicans hold a favorable view of Putin.

"I think the backstory of that would be that Barack Obama is such a weak, weak president that in fact he's allowed Vladimir Putin to be the only standing leader in the world at this point and time, and so therefore that is why you find people who are enamored by a Vladimir Putin because our president is so doggone weak."

Malzberg asked Reagan about Obama's mention of former President Ronald Reagan during a press conference last Friday, saying the nation's 40th president would "roll over in his grave" over GOP support of Russia.

"If I got a penny for every time somebody mentioned my father's name, we wouldn't be doing this interview," said Reagan, the author of "Lessons My Father Taught Me: The Strength, Integrity, and Faith of Ronald Reagan."

"I'd be living in Monaco. That's where I'd be. I'd be having a great time. I'd be in the gambling casino. I'd be drinking wine and having my yacht down there at the bay.

"It's always self-serving to Barack Obama. He never looks inward at what kind of a president is he. Who is he that would cause 37 percent of Republicans to in fact look like they support Barack Obama?"

Reagan also discussed a recent column he wrote for Newsmax in which he claimed that former President Jimmy Carter enlisted the help of the Russians in the 1980 and 1974 presidential elections.
