What did Obama promise the Kremlin, and why isn't it a topic in the campaign debate?
Jewish World Review ^ | 8/17/2012 | Clifford D. May

National security and foreign policy have received short shrift in the 2012 presidential-election campaign. Mitt Romney made a quick swing through Britain, Israel, and Poland to suggest he would repair strained relations with America’s closest allies. President Obama has repeatedly reminded voters that he gave the order to kill Osama bin Laden. That’s about it.

For the most part, each campaign has sung a single note: Romney has tried to convince voters he can fix the broken economy. Obama has tried to convince voters that Romney is a heartless, plutocratic tax cheat and, possibly, a murderer to boot.

Consequential international issues should be part of the debate. Among them: In Seoul on March 26, Obama was caught on tape assuring then–Russian president Dmitri Medvedev, Russian strongman Vladimir Putin’s factotum, that he would have “more flexibility” after the U.S. presidential election. He stressed that this would be “my last election” — implying that once that chore was out of the way he would no longer need to worry about voters and what they think.

What was Obama promising to be more flexible about?

It seems everyone in the media is responding to the “crises” of Romney’s tax returns.

I was listening to so-called conservative radio this morning and the host rambled on and on and on about Romney’s tax returns. Forget the tax returns!! The DEMONcats are using that as a diversionary tactic - and it’s working!!

Obama hasn’t much seemed to care what the voting public thought this time around; can’t imagine what he has hidden in his box of surprises to pull out and spring on us if he’s elected.

He’s got a large drawer full of EOs to bypass the Constitution and Congress, to get done what his Marxist/racist/hate-America handlers/party wants done. SHTF in ways we can’t even imagine. JMO.

It is not a topic because the Russians do not leak. It should be a topic anyway.

Think about it. Oboma is creating a Muslim Caliphate in the middle east. The Muslims, with aid from our tax dollars, are creating their own multinational union. They want to destroy the Jews.
The Russians also side with the Muslims, and hate Israel.

Oboma, after being born and raised a Muslim, and spending 20 years in the church of Rev. Write, no doubt also wants Israel wiped off the map as well. He's done everything in his power to strengthen Israels enemies. He's spent billions on it.

Oboma has never been to Israel. Every president before him has made the effort, but Oboman't step foot in Israel. Why not?

He has said he will visit Israel in his second term, but my guess is he wants to smile and tell them good bye. They're going to be attacked by the Russians as soon as he leaves. The stage is almost set.

If Israel is to be saved from this, and the globe from WWIII at this time, Oboma MUST be removed from office. I believe his entire presidency has been based on destroying Israel.

I figure that is in the quiver for later. Many folks are just now starting to tune in. Let the public get to know Ryan a bit, have the convention and showcase the ticket, then lay out some of these very troubling issues when most people get focused on the election.

Sounds like a perfect subject for Mitt Romney to bring up.

Americans support Israel. Oboma SAYS he, too, supports Israels right to exist.
His words don't match his actions. If he gets reelected, what Americans want is irrelivant. The REAL Oboma will rear it's ungly head.

Russia sides with Iran, who wants to wipe Israel off the map. Oboma has to pretend to oppose Iran, but it's only talk. He's done nothing.
Israel will be forced to protect itself from Iran, and will pi$$ off Russia.
Oboma is the one who is supporting Russia, supporting the Muslim Caliphate, and protecting Irans nuke program so it all would happen.

Exactly.

Right now, we’re winning the big one - the war about who is REALLY going to take down medicare - we’re finally getting the word out there that has been ignored - that obama has stolen over 7 BILLION from medicare.

This is a discussion they wanted. Now it’s hitting them in the face.

Florida, the “senior Citizen” state has ALREADY done a 17% flip for R&R. That is HUGE>

http://www.surveyusa.com/index.php/2012/08/15/in-florida-17-change-vote-because-of-ryan-vp-pick-vote-changers-by-43-are-drawn-to-romney/

we need to get that solidlified across the country. It’s the big issue, especially because of the Ryan pick.

There’s plenty of time to get into the other issues - one at a time. Never shoot all the arroows in your quiver at once.

Remember, the general voting public can’t absorb more than one issue at at time -
