Posted on 03/31/2012 10:40:58 AM PDT by John Semmens
In what President Obama believed to be an off-the-record exchange, he was overheard requesting space from the Russians until after the November election when he would have more flexibility. This would-be covert conversation has raised suspicions about his intended defense policies for a prospective second term.
Doing the right thing and doing the popular thing are not always one-and-the-same, Obama explained. I want to be able to do whats right. But it will be of no avail if Im not reelected. All I was asking of the Russians was to lay low for the next eight months to let me get this last election out of the way. Therell be plenty of time after that to iron out the details of the relationship between our two countries.
The Russians have been pressing for an abandonment of the United States missile defense system. They view this system as a threat to their nations security. We have no similar capability, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev complained. All we are asking is for a more balanced equation. Exposure to mutual annihilation would provide that balance.
President Obama is reportedly hoping to make the risk of mutual annihilation disappear by eliminating nuclear weapons. For too long, nuclear weapons have held humanity hostage, Obama said. If we take them out of the mix others will not have to arm themselves with them as a defense against American imperialism. The world could be restored to the less threatening environment that prevailed before the first nuclear bomb was dropped.
Rather than make these complicated issues part of the debate in the run up to November, Im asking that they be put aside, Obama requested. I think Ive done enough to have earned the American peoples trust on defense and foreign policy. Remember, I was the one who killed bin-Laden. None of my potential opponents has done anything as impressive in the way of demonstrating their bonafides.
In related news, the Russian newspaper Pravda endorsed President Obamas reelection.

If this is supposed to be satire, you should keep limiting yourself to the facts.
” American imperialism”
I can’t believe an American president would use this term.
Out of this world ad from Karl Roves American Crossroads. !! Just watch!
Your mission is simple, Mr. Obama. Win one last election to gain unchecked flexibility, weaken our defenses, and fundamentally transform the world. Dmitri will transmit the information. . .
Obama is vetting himself
“If this is supposed to be satire, you should keep limiting yourself to the facts.”
The problem is that the very reality of Obama makes him immune to satire. Any attempt by a satirist to come up with some humor by trying to exaggerate the stupidity and evil of Obama’s actions is doomed to failure. After editing out all the lame stuff, he will be limited to just the facts.
Thanks for the head shakin’ cynical chuckle John.
