Obama Promises Russia To Be More "Flexible" After Election

Tyler Durden's picture


In today's open mic farce that has made the president a target of a fresh republican onslaught, we have Obama telling Russian presidential pawn Dmitry Medvedev that "this is his last presidential election", and that he will have "more flexibility after the election." One can only assume that Obama is referring to the aggressive NATO expansion which has angered Russia substantially as noted previously, and even led to Russia putting radar stations on combat alert. It could be this or it could be anything, including US posturing vis-a-vis Syria assuming the stance a huanitariam, if completely impotent, do-gooder globocop, or for that matter any other foreign policy fiasco in which Russia now have the upper hand by default. Naturally, one wonders why Obama would be pandering to Russia (well, aside for the country's premier export position when it comes to nat gas and crude of course) in the first place. Or more importantly, as the GOP has now figured out, why does the president need to be more flexible after the election to begin with, and to what other special interest will Obama be far more responsive than to his mere electorate. Either way, nothing but more theater as central planning continues on its merry way to terminal dislocation with reality.

More from CNN:

The video features the clip of Obama and Medvedev holding a private conversation at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea. During their talk, which was caught on camera and on microphone, Obama asked his Russian counterpart for some "space" on the U.S.-led NATO missile defense system in Europe.


"This is my last election," Obama told Medvedev. "After my election I have more flexibility."


While Obama put his hand on Medvedev's arm, the Russian president responded saying he would transmit the information to the incoming president, current Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.


But Republicans seized on Obama's request as an opportunity to frame the president as a politician primarily focused on re-election.


"It's amazing what we find out about this president's policies when he thinks no one is listening and it begs the question: What else doesn't Obama want us to know about before he's reelected?" Kirsten Kukowski, RNC spokeswoman, said.


Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney also came out against Obama's comments, saying the moment represented "an alarming and troubling development."


"This is no time for our president to be pulling his punches with the American people. And not telling us what he's intending to do with regards to our missile defense system, with regards to our military might and with regards to our commitment to Israel and with regard to our absolute conviction that Iran must have a nuclear weapon," Romney said while campaigning in San Diego.


His team launched a new Twitter campaign Monday, highlighting the president's remark.


From his Twitter account, Romney asked followers to fill in the blank: "@BarackObama: I'll have more flexibility to ______ after the election."


Pushing back, the Obama campaign said Romney was distorting the president's words.


"Governor Romney has been all over the map on the key foreign policy challenges facing our nation today, offering a lot of chest thumping and empty rhetoric with no concrete plans to enhance our security or strengthen our alliances," Ben LaBolt, the campaign's press secretary, said in a statement. "Instead of passing the buck, it is time that Governor Romney shared his foreign policy agenda with the American people."

Naturally, the show must go on for the general public (which would be wise to please dump its entire life savings in the Bernie Bernankoff Asset Management ponzi scheme post haste - have you seen the monthly returns? just scorching!), even as all truly important decisions are made deep behind the scenes, and are accompanied by electronic sacks of money, where the squid in one capacity or another, always "makes a market."

Not to mention a fraud.

The good news is now, many on the inside are considering the truth of the fact that every document and law he has instituted is illegal and not valid, thus making them world criminals eligible for war crimes tribunals if they implement his illegal and unconstitutional fraudulent laws or decrees. It is already a civil war amongst those who want the glory of continued killing and mayhem like in Iraq, and those who will stop them dead in their tracks if they try it here in America.

Have hope boys and girls, there are more and more awakening to this factual information and realigning with the side of real truth and justice.

Ron Paul scares the heck out of these fast losing power-brokers and they know it.

Do not fall prey to the fear rampage and media propaganda lies and dis-information.

They are also losing the attention on the digital TV drug as more and more people wake up speaking the same launguage of awareness of the beast.

Give thanks.

You honestly think this is the first time anything like this has ever happened? And that Romney wouldnt be doing the same thing if he were in that position? Please. Its only the first time its been on mic. Have you ever heard a few words or sentences in a conversation and were absolutely sure what it was all about?


"This is no time for our president to be pulling his punches with the American people. And not telling us what he's intending to do with regards to our missile defense system, with regards to our military might..."

If Romney thinks the POTUS should inform all citizens about every intent of anything then he is even a greater idiot than I thought, and thats saying a lot. Im sure the first thing Romney would do IN HIS INAUGURATION SPEECH is inform the US population on how he intends to handle top secret defense strategy.

Note that I refered to the office not the present occupant. And inserted Romney as a thought experiment to compare how his actions may or may not differ given the same set of circumstances which WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT.


My point is that its nearly impossible to place this in any context unlkess you were there the whole time listening to the entire exchange with all previous relevant information. I dont think any of us are qualified to make that judgement.


To be clear, Im neither supporting nor villifying the POTUS, Im just being reasonable about digesting this very small and isolated part of a more complex picture and being careful about reading too much into it because what you read into it will most likely show your bias far more than it would prove to be actually correct.

This is merely one small piece of the Obama puzzle.  The entire context has been built up over the last three years.  This piece fits nicely into what we (those with our eyes open) have learned about this man.

You're right - context is key.  That context is what he's done since being POTUS, senator and a community activist.  Had RP said this, I would have scratched my head.

The missile defense scheme should be scrapped because it's just another piece of gubmint welfare shit for the military/industrial/security complex. Once again the pentagon, always fighting the last war, iwants to spend billions on a defense system that will be obselete by the time it's deployed. Why the fuck would a rogue state or terrorist group want to fire a missile at us, insuring their own destruction, when they could just hide a weapon in a shipping container, or create total havoc on dry western states with nothing more than a fucking Bic lighter. Further more such a system would likely lead to another arms race as Russia and China build weapons that can defeat it. Quit spending money that our children won't have on war toys we don't need.

Am I missing something here? How is this "treason"?

ZH suggests that by "flexible" Obama was suggesting he would ease the hardline that the U.S. has taken with regards to NATO's expansion and with regards to the U.S.'s posturing over Syria. That sounds very plausible to me.

GOOD! Why the hell is the U.S. posturing and threatening Russia in the first place? The Russian economy, as corrupt and decaying as it is, contributes to REAL global wealth far more than the U.S. economy does. Their workforce is still concentrated in the primary and secondary sectors of the economy, while the U.S. is retail/bureaucrat-land. Putin rightfully called out the U.S. economy as a global "parasite." Why is the U.S. threatening wars-of-conquest against Russian allies like Syria? 

I welcome more "flexibility" AKA less saber-rattling and global-cop actions. It makes me wonder though, who or what are the forces that are pushing Obama towards a hardline stance with Russia if it isn't his personal preference? I'm no fan of Obama but it seems like a lot of you are ignoring the fact that ultimately he is just a P.R. rep, and the clients he represents are far deeper in the shadows and probably far more insidious than Mr. Community Organizer could even dream of being.

Directly and deliberately deceiving Congress and the electorate, violating legislative restriction, sharing future missle defense plans with the leader of a volatile country led by a near-dictatorial megalomaniac, take your pick.  The point, dear ChrisFromMorningSide, is that if Obama feels this is the proper course of action he needs to get it through Congress and let the American people know that is his position and intention.  While it only may be a formality at this point, we are still technically a Constitutional Republic, and defrauding your constituents, in this case the entire fucking country, is worthy of being labelled a high crime.

Likewise, it is pretty funny in either context.


1.Dutch Rudder

     Having someone complete the act of masturbation by pulling up and down on the forearm, while the male holds his own penis. SnackCake gave Tonkin a Dutch Rudder, because they are two freaky people who like to try new things.

2.Dutch Rudder

  When someone comes up with an idea (like at work) that will benefit mainly them self and they hand the actual work off to someone else. Getting Dutch Ruddered:

Dustin: "I think that if we stored all the files in one location, I could process the reports faster."

Chris: "That is a really good idea."

Dustin: "So do you mind clearing out your schedule for the rest of the day and start moving the files?"

Because that one sentence reveals BHO is more concerned about his next election than the best interest of the country.  If what he proposes doing with the Russians is in America's best interest, why not tell us now?  Why wait until post election?

Yes kids. The election fix is in and everyone knows it. The republicans will do all in their power to lose this next election so that when the economy fails after the oil shock that comes with a "conflict" in Iran, they won't be blamed. Santorum, if he's not the nominee, will be the new, well-poisoning "Palin" if Palin herself can't be persuased to run as VP.

I will say this. IF Obama is a plant of some higher power which has gone to the point of falsifying records, counterfeiting birth certificates, and re-writing/erasing his past in order to get him into this position, then he will absolutely be elected again regardless of who runs against him...........then there will be four years of hell unleashed in America.

I can't agree. Dubya did far more damage to the republic than this clown has done. Unconstitutional war of aggression against a country that did not attack us, Patriot Act, betrayal of the NRA at the 2004 Clinton hi-cap/assault wep law sunset, failure to support anti-abortion efforts, creation of DHS, growth of big government in aggregate by more than any president going back to LBJ, etc. Obama is less bad.

Are you fucking kidding me ?  Yes, Bush/Cheney was bad but Obomber ???


Unconstitutional war of aggression against Libya, continued Gitmo, the wars in Iraq and expanded Afghanistan with drones into Pakistan, extended and enhanced the Patriot Act, Fast&Furious and Eric (Place)Holder, expansion of DHS/TSA, signed the NDAA and the expanded EO for COG, Obama(No)Care, continues to bail out every banker whose cock gets near his mouth, Corzine not in jail, no prosecutions on Wall Street, a wrist slap to the banks for robo-signing, and in general for being a total blank slate on his vital records.


Oh no, asswipe, Obama is far, far worse.  Bush may have wiped his ass with the Constitution, but Obama is not only shitting all over it too, he's burmning it to cinders.

Don't you get it? Without the atrocity of the Bush presidency, none of the stuff Barry has done would have been possible. The "conservatives" would have stopped it. That's what made the Bush presidency so damn lefty-liberal-evil: the failure of the "conservatives" to see beyond the end of Dubya's 8 years - the failure to see how these newly created Executive powers would be used by the next guy!

Bush was far worse. In much the same way Linclon was worse than Woodrow Wilson.
