Above, 3/26/2012, Apparently to emphasize his deep sincerity about screwing Americans after the Nov. 2012 election, Obama reaches across the table to press the hand of Russian Pres. Medvedev. Screen shot from UK Telegraph video

after the two met in a Russian-language class at the University of
Hawaii." 5/12/2012, "Five Unordinary Facts About President Obama's Mother," ABC News, Amy Bingham

"President Obama said something important and
revealing on Monday in South Korea....
Mr. Obama was
talking with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev when neither of them
realized that their conversation was being picked up by microphones.
Here is what they said:
Obama: “On all these issues, but
particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s
important for him to give me space.”
Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you …”
Obama: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”
Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”
That statement tells us much about the president’s mindset.
specific mention of missile defense is worrisome enough. Mr. Obama has
retreated from the missile defense plan that was negotiated with
European allies during the George W. Bush administration. Apparently, he
is signaling Moscow that he intends to retreat further. The clear
implication from the president’s comments is that he cannot tell the
American people before the election what he plans to do after the
In addition, there is the phrase “on all these issues,” implying more is at stake than just missile defense.
example, the White House has floated proposals for more deep cuts in
our nuclear deterrent-as much as 80 percent. In mid-February, I had
the chance to ask Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and Joint Chiefs of
Staff Chairman Gen. Martin E. Dempsey about these trial balloons. I told
them that such talk does nothing but encourage our enemies to pursue
nuclear weapons and discourage our friends from believing they can count
on our nuclear deterrent. The result is a more dangerous world with
more nuclear-weapons programs spread across it.
without having to answer to voters again may well mean cuts in nuclear
weapons and capability that will end the peace-through-strength approach
pursued by both parties for more than 50 years. In addition, “more
flexibility” in an attempt to please Russian President-elect Vladimir Putin also could include a host of other measures that weaken the United States and reduce the confidence other nations have in us....
Mr. Obama seems anxious to be unshackled from
the American voters so he can do what he thinks is best for all of us
without having to be accountable for it. His comments are revealing-and deeply disturbing. Undoubtedly, they should be an important turning
point for those who may be unsure of his leadership and the direction in
which he seeks to take our country now and in the future."

Obama, anxious to please Russia, promised Putin he'd be better able to do so (and double cross chump Americans) after his final election in Nov. 2012. Medvedev said he'd give that message to Vladimir Putin-Washington Times, 3/29/2012 (Perhaps Obama has sentimental feeling about Russia since his parents met in a Russian language class in Hawaii)
