Obama Speaks the Truth!

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



The exchange was picked up by microphones as reporters were let into the room for remarks by the two leaders.

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.

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.

  1. “After my election I have more flexibility.”

    It’s deeply frightening to speculate what Obama would get up to if/when he no
    longer had to consider what the electorate thought of his policies.

    What changes could this president have in mind for our missile defense system that he
    can only enact when he’s in a second term, and needn’t worry about public opinion?

  2. Political “gaffes” are moments in which truths are told. We documented a few of them in our new book, Tell The Truth, and suggest that all types of institutions would do well to emulate such behaviors (vs looking at them as unintended exceptions).

  3. Really, none of this surprises me. Many of us here understood the character (or lack thereof ) of Obama. What I wasn’t prepared for was the sickening reassuring pat of a fellow traveler . Really scary stiff all the way around with this guy. I fear for my children.

  4. It feels like just yesterday when Obama jettisoned plans to include Poland and the Czech Republic under a missile defense shield giving Russia what it had lost just 20 years earlier—militaristic threat over Eastern Europe. In return Russia has become more assertive in the Ukraine and elsewhere. Now, a stalwart defense capability is being given away, not apparently even negotiated away, and for what….

    Further, does anyone not see the astonishing irony of Obama making this comment in South Korea, a country under constant threat of missile attack from the North, and at a time when the North is pushing its missile range to include the continental US.

  5. Even though I roundly despise our President’s policies etc, I don’t see this as being so incredibly “out there”. As though every President hasn’t made the same or similar comments when negotiating with a foreign power in an election year.. It isn’t pretty, but somehow I don’t think this is the first time something like this has been said by a President.

  6. I think it is very “out there” Chris, and I hope that we have not had a President before that assured an adversary power that they would get what they wanted once he no longer had to answer to the American people again. I view this as very important, and alarming, and not a minor gaffe.

  7. This is like something out of a Frederick Forsyth novel. Imagine the president of the U.S. in effect abdicating to a once long-time enemy by pledging to scale back military power. This is almost as bad as his bow to the Saudi king. God save the Republic from this madman!

  8. Donald, yes.. definitely important, alarming and not a minor gaffe. Maybe I’m just more cynical about our ex-Presidents. It seems Obama was expressing that he would have more room to maneuver, diplomatically, once the election year pressure was off. To me, this seems like politics as usual. Is it possible Obama was merely placating Medvedev? Is he just playing for time? We can guess, but it’d be difficult to know for certain.

    We do know the Russians would MUCH rather have the incumbent in office next year than the GOP frontrunner.. So saith Pravda. Which seems to lend credence to the idea that Obama is more or less selling out to them.

    There are days when I hate politics.. and days when I despise it. Today is the latter 😉

    “I wonder if a case can be made that he is currently so guilty.”
    Section 3 – Treason Note
    “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
    The Congress shall have power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.”
    When Obama neglected to recite the Declaration of Independence and include “our Creator”, no less than three times, (on video) Obama committed treason and sedition against our founding principles. As a president who swore an oath to protect and defend our constitution, Obama has purposefully violated his oath in surrendering our sovereignty as a nation to the United Nations in the LOST (LAWS OF THE SEA TREATY) and the Small Weapons Treaty, signed by Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State. Rural Councils, The National Defense Authorization Act, Obamacare itself, in Executive Orders, usurping the powers of the Legislative branch of government to make laws according to the informed consent and the will of the people and to ratify treaties. Abortion is treason against our nation. The people are our posterity, our constitutional posterity. The children who survived abortion and became citizens at birth, Obama left to die of neglect in a broom closet. These citizens were Obama’s constituency and Obama wanted them dead and gone. More treason against our nation and our constitution. Abortion is murder, for Obama, abortion is treason. As Stalin said: “To kill one man is homicide, to kill 30,000,000 is a statistic” It is also treason. Stalin did it, Obama does it.
    Harrison Williams was “influence peddling” to Arabs in Abscam and he left Congress before being indicted. He spent two years in Federal prison. “Williams was convicted on May 1, 1981 for taking bribes in the Abscam sting operation,[1] and resigned from the U.S. Senate in 1982 before a planned expulsion vote”. From Wikipedia.
    Treason inheres: “or in adhering to their (U.S.)Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

  10. Chris M. Pravda, the Russian newspaper said that even they were stunned by how much Obama took the first one hundred days in office. Obama was not placating. Obama was assuring.

  11. Mary, I have to travel to another city tomorrow to attend a Religious Freedom Mass. The travel time is 4 hours. So I shall pray all 20 decades. There will be more than enough time! And I need the practice. Now Latin or English? What’s your preference? 😉

  12. That this hateful nothing could be elected president tells more about the imbeciles that befoul this once-great nation than it does about Obama.

  13. Was Health and Human ‘Services’ (HHS) derived from Health, Education, and Welfare? The Department of Education (DOE) becoming an offshoot department to work with its companion, the NEA union? Lost track of these cabinet secretaries, as well as the names of their departments of responsibility, over the last generation. Seems there isn’t even a fox guarding the hen house, and the eggs are disappearing or hatching as other-than-free-range chickens. At least, President Medvedev understands the President’s need for space and flexibility …

  14. Impeachment proceedings started now, will dampen Obama’s chance for reelection. I am told by older voters, that they voted the way their parents and grandparents voted-Democratic.(before secularization, atheism, abortion, euthanasia, New World Order under the mortagage company, depradation of the checks and balances in our Constitution, betraying America’s sovereignty, among other crimes committed by Barak Obama)Impeachment proceedings will cause these voters to take a closer look at who they are voting for. Obama stands for atheism, totalitarianism, legalized homicide, repudiation of our founding principles, usurpation of personal property ownership, rejection of personal sovereignty, refutation of First Amendment Freedoms, eminent domain, habeas corpus.
    Obama’s hero, Benito Mussolini and his wife were dragged through the streets by their feet and hung upside down in the public square so that eveyone who had been abused by Mussolini could have at him. Obama deserves no less, but we have to settle for impeachment, and let God deal with his abysmal soul. May the wrath of God be upon him. Rosary Victory

  16. Mary,

    Stop, please. Aside from the ridiculous assertion that Obama has committed an treason, and the proposterous assertion that Republican presidential hopefuls would benefit right now from impeachment proceedings, I want to point out that Republicans voted overwhelmingly for The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (and previous years, too). In good faith, you would have to put them all on trial, too.

  17. Spambot3049: These are my opinions. You do not have to like them, but they are my opinions. 1) in violating his oath of office, President Obama has refused to adhere to our founding principles, aborting our constitutional posterity, all future generations, is treason and deserves impeachment. 2) I never assumed that the Republican hopefuls would benefit from impeachment hearings. I would like for all citizens to be enlightened as to what is being foistered upon them for their tax dollars, a boot on the neck. 3) Obama removed the words from the NDAA that would have protected citizens, before he signed it. Again the bait and switch game. Aren’t you tired of being lied to. I am. And before citizens vote, they need to know just what they are voting for. It is called TRUTH, the rest is called FREEDOM. AND I SEE YOU HAVE A RIDICULOUS PROBLEM WITH TRUTH AND FREEDOM.
