Ah, Politicians tend to be most honest when they do not realize the public is hearing them. Case in point Mr. Obama in the video scene above which is destined for immortality in this campaign
Vladimir is of course Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of Russia, and former (?) KGB spook. Three observations:
1. Obama thinks this election is in the bag for him.
2. After the election he plans on having a lot more “flexibility” to do things that are politically impossible for him to do now.
3. He is quite willing to signal to an adversary of the US that sweet deals are in store for them in a second Obama administration.
If the Republicans do not play this ad nauseum from now until election day they have the political instincts of a half eaten turnip.
