Obama: We have reset U.S.-Russia relations @ 12:18 pm by Jeremy P. Jacobs
President Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev touted the results of the first day of their summit in Moscow at a press conference on Monday.
Both presidents complimented the others' "business-like" approach to the summit and both appeared pleased with the agreements that came out of the first day.
Obama said at the beginning at that shortly after taking office they "resolved to reset U.S.-Russian relations."
"Today, after less than six months," he went on, "we have done exactly that."
In particular, Obama touted the summit's agreements on nuclear proliferation Obama said he hopes to reduce the the U.S. and Russia's nuclear arsenal by about a third.
The press conference did not go off flawlessly, however. Obama stumbled slightly over the pronunciation of Medvedev's name at the beginning of the press conference, though he recovered quickly. The U.S. president also sidestepped a question about who is leading Russia, Medvedev or former president and current prime minister Vladmir Putin. Obama said he trusts Medvedev but said that Medvedev and Putin appear to be "working very well together."
Medvedev characterized the first day of talks as "very open and sincere." He also said that Russia and the U.S. has "many points of convergence and many points of mutual interest."
The Russian president also said that the two leaders discussed Afghanistan at length, as well as developments in the Middle East. Obama added later that they also had conversations about relations with North Korea and Iran.
"On the whole, characterizing the first day of work," Medvedev said, "I would like to say that I view them as the first and very important step in the process of improving full scale cooperation between our two countries."
If you saw the presser he had that cocky head tilted look that made him look full of himself....
And what did he give away to do that? Or was he on their side all along?
Reset? Dear Lord, you turned them back 75 years! Guess it’s understandable...two commies getting all bleary-eyed for each other. *rolling eyes*
The Fuhrer thinks we’re all morons.
In other words obama rolled over like a puppy and submitted.
Back to the Cold War?
Well kids you will have to learn the duck and cover song now.
So he’s sorry that we won the Cold War.
Can anyone point to anything POSITIVE he’s ever said about this nation he claims to call his home?
given the number of folks who voted for him, I’m not sure that he is at least partially correct. more is the pity.
But we can look forward to cheaper vodka.
So what are the surrender terms?
Barack Obama claimed in college that he had to practice duck and cover drills because of the cold war.
Except he was school in Indonesia as a youth.
I did duck and cover drills in the 1970s for TORNADOS, not nuclear bombs.
The Fibber in Chief has lied his way through his whole life.
Most likely he agreed to abandon missile defense in eastern Europe and got nothing in return.
Sweet we can maybe rebuild the soviet union it would be swell
I wish we could reset our relationship with Obama.
The era of the “useful idiot” has returned.
Gotta love it, the man sooo full of himself. Reminds me of Chamberlain and Hitler. At the end of the day, we will find the bears himno (feces with) little bits of b/o’s hair.
A bear is a bear, you cant take the spots off a leopard.....they are still a backwards people.
Since he never defined “reset”, it’s certainly makes claiming success easy.
Office Of The Useful Idiot...
Obama doo-doo! (The new progressive term for taurus excrement.)
The Obamaloon is stupid.
The Obamaloon has no abilities whatsoever.
The Obamaloon should be selling hamburgers.
Good grief, how did this IDIOT get elected?
