Skip to comments.Obama makes light of, clarifies hot mic moment
Posted on 03/26/2012 11:41:46 PM PDT by Hunton Peck
President Obama made light Tuesday of the hot microphone moment he had the day earlier with Russian President Medvedev, where he said that after the November election, he'd have more "flexibility" on the issue of missile defense.
Just as leaders were greeting one another and about to sit down at the opening session of the Nuclear Security Summit, Obama spotted Medvedev, looks over at him, puts his hands over the microphone in front of him with a big smile, and then goes to greet the Russian president.
Obama was asked about the "flexibility" statement later while making remarks to the press about a nuclear safety agreement, and said "Arms control is extraordinarily complex, very technical, and the only way it gets done is if you can consult and build a strong basis of understanding both between countries as well as within countries."
...he also noted the START treaty took them two years to get ratified.
"I don't think it's any surprise that you can't start that a few months before a presidential and congressional elections in the United States and at a time when they just completed elections in Russia, and they're in the process of a presidential transition where a new president's going to be coming in a little less than two months," he added.
"[T]he only way I get this stuff done is if I'm consulting with the Pentagon, if I'm consulting with Congress, if I've got bipartisan support, and frankly the current environment is not conducive to those kinds of thoughtful consultations. I think the stories you guys have been writing over the last 24 hours is probably pretty good evidence of that," Obama said.

Hey, it's only our national security.
Krauthammer’s take seems the most sensible: “This is my last election.” Not “after the election, or “after the next election.” It’s either the most unfortunate phrasing O’s ever used or it means ‘my power’s at its peak, no accountability to worry about.’ Funny that impeachment doesn’t occur to him.
I smell a sellout looming.....
“0bama yucks it up with Medvedev, babbles nonsequiturs, blames congress, media, democratic process, while clarifying that he’s trying to get “stuff” done. In other words, Same Old 0bama.”
There FUBO goes again “punching above his weight class.”
His clarification makes it even worse.
He knows Republicans and the rest don't have the fortitude for impeachment. No, it's not not funny, either..
President Mau-Mau will get us all killed if he’s not defeated in November.
This is not an “oppsie giggle, giggle, my bad” moment. This is as close to genuine 150 proof TREASON as any President has ever considered.
He made it clear that he would be acting in Russia’s interests after the election.
If we can’t get him out of office with this on his record, the United States is finished.
The last impeachment was easily diverted to sex in the oval office..
Republicans fell for the diversion like exercise sweaters to a Richard Simmons DVD....
......Wearing a Pink Turkey Suit costume.. to the Macarena..
So true...we couldn’t take care of a white guy caught on tape lying through his teeth under oath...so we obviously can’t get rid of a “historic” black traitor.
How pathetic is that??
Nobody believes you, jackass.
freak’in liar!Oh, ye 53% scum suckers. Welcome to hell!
"I can't talk about my Selective Service form, my long form birth certificate, and my Connecticut Social Security number right now, but I will have more FLEXIBILITY to talk about them to you after I win the upcoming Nov. 2012 elections, because it is my last election."
“”I don’t think it’s any surprise that you can’t start that a few months before a presidential and congressional elections in the United States and at a time when they just completed elections in Russia, and they’re in the process of a presidential transition where a new president’s going to be coming in a little less than two months,” he added. “
What does that statement have to do with HIS flexibility? It explains nothing about what he said. Its diversionary.
Is it that he is being snubbed by the Marx Brothers?
>>theyre in the process of a presidential transition where a new presidents going to be coming in a little less than two months<<
Hey Dumbo Hussein....same thing’s happening here. Shouldn’t you be home and packing?
This is the typical pattern; make joke about issue, laugh with press, issue now is off-limits.
What does that statement have to do with HIS flexibility? It explains nothing about what he said. Its diversionary.
Does anybody know what in the world President Flexibility Obama is saying above?
If you have any idea what President Flexibility is saying above, could you please explain it to us mere mortals who have no idea what he is trying to say? Thanks.
Is he saying that he can't do what is best for the United States of America right now, because he is scared that if he does what is right for America's future right now, he could make some voters so mad that he could lose the Nov. 2012 election?
When President Flexibility Obama says that he will have more "flexibility" after the election, what is he talking about?
Is the President of the United States, Flexibility Obama, saying that he has no "flexibility" now? Very confusing.
The punk POTUS is close making all those who have died serving this country since 1945 in vain. It is making my head throb that there is not more universal outrage over this in our country.
Clearly his certainty WRT staying in offce is not based on his approval ratings or massive opposition to his cockamamie polices----mandated healthcare, trilllion dollar stimulus, using aborted babies' brains in lab experiments, giving himself massive power over Americans, co-opting religious beliefs......to name a few.
No. Ohaha's certainty stems from his knowledge that he will stay in office---not by the will of the people---but by using unprecedented vote fraud.
What do you expect from an anti-American, Kenyan Marxist?
The “Manchurain Candidate” has assured his handlers/mentors in Moscow that he will do their will as soon as he gets reelected. Pure and simple this dude is selling us out.
That is the part that scared me, Liz. As usual, the msm missed this VERY illuminating point. He’s getting a 2nd term - no discussion.
Impeachment is an unnecessary and expensive road to travel.
We are in or about to be in a post Obama world. His current presence is disregarded and plans will be for a world in which he is no longer a factor.
Obama is being discounted to 0
We all know what he’s saying. He’s saying he is going to do exactly what he wants if he gets 4 more years and oh by the way compliant media lay down on your back and run with the fact it’s the Russians who need time and thats the important thing here.
That could be it. Or, looking on the bright side it could mean that after the election, which he knows he'll lose, he'll have "more flexibility" to move his family to Moscow so he can be Putin's new Butler.
But 'series', with his 41% approval rating and Gas Prices that will go higher, even unprecedented vote fraud couldn't help him come Nov. He'd need Martial Law, with every republican and most independents rounded up and disappeared away to remote camps in Alaska or Northern Montana.
And that would work for about the first 10 minutes before an all out shooting war started with his jack booted thugs dong the rounding up.
The minute I saw the news clip---it was crystal clear to me that was his mindest.
He knows he HAS to employ voter fraud----b/c he is a pariah----and will be dumped out of office AND tarred and feathered in the process.
The Odd Couple.
Let us not forget----the minute they hit the WH, the Chi/mob went into action.
The WH mob took over the census---and now have all the CV they need to file phony FEC reports using stolen federal dollars as campaign contributions.
THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD Obama COS Rahm Emanuel "suddenly" discovered he wanted to be Chicago's mayor---the little turn went before the mics and announced his campaign "raised $10 million in just a few weeks." Rahm also controlled the US Treasury as COS.
Do not underestimate the cash the Ohahas/Chi-mob can come up with......remember, these are the kingpins of Chicago politics. At one time, conscientious FEC investigators verified money was coming from legal citizens....but if Obama wins there will be no investigations. Remember, there are billions unaccounted for in Obama's stimulus packages (probably used in the last election cycle).....you can be sure the Ohaha kingpins have tons of money stashed away for 2012.
POINTS TO PONDER
<><> author Dean Koontz estimates there's about $90 billion missing from the US treasury.
<><> Ohaha's ex-COS Chi/Mayor Rahm Emanuel is running the reelection campaign----b/c this Wall Street turd knows where all the money is hidden. Rahm also controlled all US Treasury assets (at Obama's behest) when he was COS.
<><>The Ohahas took control of the census upon taking office----they have all the necessary CV to phony up contribution reports for the FEC.
WATCH FOR PHONY FEC REPORTS Obama's reelection coffers added $45 million to its coffers in February.....raised jointly by the DNC, "Obama for America" and two other joint fundraising committees the "Obama Victory Fund" and the "Swing State Victory Fund,"...and whatever other voter frauds they dream up.
Losing votes: Do you think that President Flexibility lost at least a few hundred votes come election day Nov. 2012 because of his recent March 2012 "flexibility" remark to the Russian leader?
What has made the "flexibility" remark worse is that President Obama is making jokes about it as if the statement really meant nothing. Sad. Sad.
Yes he lost votes but the media will try and smooth it over using his line and keep the damage to a minimum.
Last evening Michael Savage broke with protocol and actually floated something plausible.
He maintained that Open Mic Night was not an accident, but a deliberate set-up by people within his own administration who were not happy with where this was going.
One can only hope there will be more of them.
But the way things are breaking against Barry even his lapdogs in the MSM can't cover it all up now. And as we all know that was a huge factor last time (plus the way that ijit McInsane ran his 'hands off Obama' campaign). The MSM gave Barry a 15 Point advantage at least by covering everything up about him and his past. But the MSM can't cover up the Gas Prices and that they really are Barry's fault.
And the way ObamaCare started off yesterday in the SCOTUS wasn't good for Barry. Even liberal Justice Breyer was bemused (bewildered or confused) by the arguments of Barry's Solicitor General -- laughter broke out more than a few times. Even Justice Kagan jumped in on the fun.
So ObamaCare looks like it'll be dead, ruling coming right before the election in October. Added to $4.00+ Gas (and still rising), unemployment that will not go away with economy still in the dumpster, the Vote Fraud needed wold have to be like no other we have ever seen. It would have to be on par with that of Saddam and Iraq's 'elections', Zimbabwe, or the election of his buddy Hugo in Venezuela
So IMHO unless he has plans were there wouldn't be an election, he's gone. And if he executes 'that plan', he'll be gone then too.
Obama is Felix
I wonder if he tells Arabs he’ll have “more flexibility after the election....
Pray for Israel - they’re gonna need every prayer they can get.
