The Compulsion to Confess, via a microphone left on. But of course we know this–he lied to us in 2008 and he’s lying to us now. Obama’s comments to Russia’s Medvedev simply confirm what we already know about this bastard. And it’s not just on missile defense, but on every issue relevant to the quality of our lives. This particular revelation, however, makes it clear that Obama is completely prepared, willing and even eager to see us out. Just after his election when he’ll have “more flexiility.” Are you willing to give that to him? I would think not.
President Obama got caught in private conversation with a hot mic today in Seoul, South Korea, telling outgoing Russian president Dmitry Medvedev that Vladimir Putin should give him more “space” and that “[a]fter my election I have more flexibility.”
Jake Tapper has the exchange:
President Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.”
President Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”
President Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”
President Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you.”
