Obama To Putin: ‘More Flexibility’ After Nov

From Jake Tapper at ABC News and Fox News:


President Obama Asks Medvedev for ‘Space’ on Missile Defense — ‘After My Election I Have More Flexibility’

SEOUL, South Korea — At the tail end of his 90 minute meeting with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev Monday, President Obama said that he would have “more flexibility” to deal with controversial issues such as missile defense, but incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin needs to give him “space.”

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

Obama is basically telling Putin he will give away the store if he is re-elected. In fact, it would seem to be a signal to all of America’s enemies.

Which is a good reminder for any voter who still has any doubt about how important the up-coming elections are.

    After the National election of 2012, former President Barack Obama will have more flexibility-much more. He will be unemployed.

  2. Petronius says:

    Perhaps the Russians will save us.

    Perhaps they will rid us of this quisling when they no longer have use for him.

    Rule by Putin would be a step up for America, not down.

    I think the “space” Obama is asking for is space to only campaign until November. Get our of way space.
