Obama to Medvedev: I’ll have more flexibility to solve missile defense after my election

Obama was caught on a hot mic making post-election promises to the Russians to solve the so-called ‘missile defense issue’ after this election, given he’ll have more flexibility:



FOX NEWS – Obama, during a sit-down with Medvedev in Seoul, urged Moscow to give him “space” until after November. The conversation was relayed by a TV pool producer who listened to the recording from a Russian journalist.

“This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility,” Obama told Medvedev.

Obama appeared to be asking Medvedev to relay this point to Vladimir Putin, who recently won election to return to the Russian presidency.

“On all these issues, but particularly missile defense … this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space,” Obama said.

Medvedev told the president he understood the “message about space. Space for you …”

After Obama noted he’d have more flexibility in the future, Medvedev told him: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

Sounds like Obama is selling out the American people, making secret deals with the Russians to dismantle our missile defense and make America weaker.

November cannot get here fast enough.

Obama’s excuse for his comment is hogwash. Nothing will get done in an election year? Wrong, buddy! President’s continue on with national defense issues even in election years. Bush didn’t ignore the world in his election year.

The flexibility he is actually referring to is that he won’t have to cater to anyone any more. He had already stated he wants to destroy our missile defense systems…it’s on video. He just proved he is willing to do it. You don’t tell someone who wants you to do something bad for your national defense “just wait until after the elections”.

Nah, as long as Russia and China agree to reduce their missiles by a substantial amount, also. Oh, wait. Russia has done that before, lol. But, hey…. don’t forget we have the miracle worker in Obama that world leaders bow to every time they meet him. Oh, wait. Obama is the one doing that to dictators. Give me a minute….I’ll think of something, lol.

No, no. I understood you just fine. NYGino misunderstood, but I was joining you in being facetious. I understood you were joking and making the point that Russia WILL point their missiles at us and that we will hinge our safety on Russia’s choice on whether to launch missiles at us when we have no protection. Don’t worry, we are on the same page.

Lol, no harm no foul. It is very difficult to pick up when someone is being facetious because we can’t see demeanor, attitude, or expression.

And if Russia, Iran or N. Korea promises not to launch missiles at us or our allies you’re alright with that? We should unarm on their word alone?

Jim Land

uhhhhhh………..I think you missed the point of my post. It was generally a “If you don’t plan to launch a missile at us than you don’t have a reason to fear missile defense.” It was slightly tic though, as it really isn’t true. If we build a missile defense shield than Russia’s nukes suddenly become useless, and that shifts the power decidedly towards us. Russia is countering by basically saying, “Hey, if you build that shield you better hope it works.” Its all bluff though. As bad as a missile defense shield would be to Russia, testing it would mean the end of Russia.

Obama’s Little Mind “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson) As the Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments on the constitutionality of Obamacare, it’s fitting to consider the quality of the mind of the person who proposed and foisted that abominable legislation on the American people. Before, during, and following the last presidential campaign, Barack Hussein Obama was presented to the American people and the planet as a scholarly, articulate, and charismatic savior who would masterfully lead and transform the nation and restore respect for America in the collective eyes of the rest of the world. During his relatively brief tenure as the most powerful man in the universe, the president has indeed transformed the United States, although his version of change hasn’t been what most Americans expected. Obama has transformed the economy into a virtual basket case, has created deficits and national debts which… Read more »

69,456,897 voted for Obama. 59,934,814 voted for McCain. I cannot believe that anybody who voted against Obama in 2008 would change their view and vote for him in 2012. That leaves the number of people that voted for him and are now disillusioned by him. If 6.5%, only 6.5%, of those people change their minds, he loses.

That is why Obama, the LSM, and all progressives are scared and will do anything to win. The Chicago way says to use voter fraud, distractions such as ‘women’s rights’, and promote such things as class/race warfare. These are his tools and these are what we must fight.

Been thinking about this too and looked up those same numbers recently – 9.5 million. According to the phony March 9 2012 Employment Situation Summary*, there are 12.8 million people unemployed, or 8.3%, over 1.5 million per percentage point. Adjust for the probable actual umemployment rate of at least 10% (almost certainly higher) and that 12.8 million becomes 15 million. Add on a very lowball number of ‘disappeared jobs’, say 2 million, and that takes the number of un- or under-employed to roughly 17 million, minimum.

Or, a plurality of 1.8X the number of votes by which 0bama won. Even allowing for those who are happy to collect money for not working, that’s a pretty hefty margin.

Adding in the effects of the miscreant’s lawless policies and decisions, I have to ask myself: how can all this be anything but a landslide win for ABO??

Erm … well, isn’t this a bit of a P.R. misstep for, presumably, the smartest man in the world?

As despicable as this comment is by the Fuhrer-in-chief, I don’t wanna overreact here. He was speaking to Medvedev, after all, and that guy’s about as important as Anthony Weiner. However, why would you even remotely imply — in an election year, Mr. President — that you’re willing to compromise America’s integrity? Could it possibly be that you don’t have any integrity? That’s what I take away from this — despite the fact that appears as if the Commander-in-Chief is perfectly willing to gamble with America’s military superiority on the international stage.

You’re picking and choosing what you believe is important as accomplishments in an election year, Pres. Showbama, and methinks you chose poorly.

He is also saying that he will be re-elected: “After my election, I have more flexibility.” He obviously knows something we don’t know. This guy is as sinister as they come! Can you imagine if anyone else, especially a Republican, said that? If this evil person is re-elected, God help us all.

As much as I can’t stand Romney, if he is the Republican nominee for President, I will once again have to go into the voting booth and hold my nose. We all need to do that. If you think Obama is a dictator now (sidestepping Congress), you ain’t seen nothing yet. When he doesn’t have to face another election, he’ll go full throttle into dictator mode. Mark my words.

I’ve watched this five or ten times now. Something is not right with this exchange… Is it just that feeling of good ole boys settling American policy behind our backs? Is it the language of “my election” versus a more traditional and respectful “the election”? Is it the feeling that he wants to get this pesky election out of the way? Is it all the touchy feely stuff between our president and the representative of a truly creepy Russian system?

He’s got the election in the bag … and knows it. And the surprise for us is what comes after the election. IF whatever it is, is not a “surprise,” talk about it now. Right? Why not … unless it would turn enough voters against him and risk his election.

These people believe in global governance while keep us occupied thinking we have a representative government and a sovereign country. Our lives, our liberty and our fortunes mean absolutely nothing to them.

This is the same face of Obama and his elitist that was exposed in his comment about people clinging to our guns and our religion.

Keep watching these creeps….whether republican, democrat, or internationalist, and ask yourself how you want to live.

The transition plan from Putin to Medvedev and then back again was widely reported on the internet before Medvedev was “elected”.

It is how the Progressives operate in America. It is what the globalist demand. Think just a bit about our trajectory, the hand offs, and our current flight path since Ronald Reagan.

Now will we, the people, stop it before the Constitution has been obliterated?

We’ve gone from mutually assured destruction to globally-agreed-upon-American destruction.

The peace through strength (need that patch with a B-52 on it–if anyone knows where to find one, that would be sweet) mantra has been ditched after Reagan because the United States has been convicted in the progressive/communist/totalitarian court of opinion as guilty of what ails the world. These same people, who brought on contrived mass starvation, the Great Leap Forward!, and other ‘modes of progress’ are the same people lecturing us and aggressively prosecuting us in the court of public opinion.

It’s F***** up, and you’re right. We need to step up, and stop it. Now.

Just an indication of what he’s intending to do to this country if re-elected. He’ll have no restraints on him not having to worry about another election and with no regards for the restraints of checks and balances, which he has shown to criminally ignore.

There are only two possible outcomes after November, the survival of The United States of America or Obama’s second term. Can’t be both.
