Skip to comments.Where's an Open Mic When We Really Need It? (0 in "cahoots with Russian regime")
Posted on 03/30/2012 8:58:22 AM PDT by mojito
When President Obama blurted out to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he couldn't do serious business during an election year, the New York Times characterized it as a "moment of political candor." It seems to me, actually, to be a moment of political contemptfor the issues at hand as well as for the demos itself. Mr. Medvedev meanwhile was in familiar territory: Dissembling is the routine of the elected Russian dictatorship.
We are the big boys, Mr. Obama seemed to be telling Mr. Medvedev or rather Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and I are, and you, Medvedev, are the messenger, to whom, as the newspaper photograph shows, I confide. "I will deliver this information to Vladimir," responded the second man in the Kremlin. Another news picture shows an image from the back, the two presidents walking together, the American chief executive with his big right hand firmly on his Russian junior partner's much slighter shoulder.
And what was the message to Vladimir? Mr. Obama was proffering the Russians "more flexibility" on missile defense, which he couldn't do, he said, in an election year.
But really the message, the important one, concerns us, here in America. It is that the American people can't be trusted if the president is honest with them about what he proposes. More bluntly, that the American people are not trusted by their own president. Otherwise the president would tell us the truth about his intentions. And here he is, admitting his distrust of his own people to a leader of a nasty foreign government that seeks to thwart our purposes in the Middle East and elsewhere. President Obama is in cahoots with the Russian regime against America's very body politic.

There used to be a word for that: it was "traitor."
Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.
I think Obama's selling us out...
“I think Obama’s selling us out... “
I won’t be surprised when after his re-election Obama unilaterally disarms the strategic nuclear arsenal of the US. Totally.
What the historical genius Obama has not thought of it that such unilateral peacenic gestures are seen as nothing admirable by our enemies, but as weakness. Nuclear weapons and US military prowess have prevented major power conflicts for over 60 years now, but that fact is lost on Obama. Not our enemies.
They will smile and shake Obama’s hand, and tell him how smart and high minded he is and give him another peace prize, right before the ultimatum.
I would like to see more thorough treatment of this in all the media.
Could it be the single most descriptive event about our (alleged) president's true feelings about our country?
And, what are his little plans for us (and our precious Military and our vital national defense) when the election is over, and he has more..."flexibility"?)
We need to learn more.
And we need to learn it BEFORE the election, NOT AFTER.
Obama is not the “Great Communicator.” He is the “Great Betrayer.”
The MSM doesn’t cover the President - they cover FOR him.
YouTube has the link below on some kind of slow replay - but take the time if you can... It’s two elite journalists talking when they don’t know a conservative is in the room taping.
One of the guys is New York Times connected -the other a journalism professor. They talk about how to ‘help’ Obama - and Occupy. They laugh at NPR and PBS cheating on their taxes - and they show total contempt for conservatives.
The press is owned by dems. They are NOT honest brokers.
