Full title: President Obama Asks Medvedev for Space on Missile Defense After My Election I Have More Flexibility
SEOUL, South Korea At the tail end of his 90 minute meeting with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev Monday, President Obama said that he would have more flexibility to deal with controversial issues such as missile defense, but incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin needs to give him space.
The exchange was picked up by microphones as reporters were let into the room for remarks by the two leaders.
President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but its important for him to give me space.
President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you
President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.
President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.
When asked to explain what President Obama meant, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications Ben Rhodes told ABC News that there is room for the U.S. and Russia to reach an accommodation, but there is a lot of rhetoric around this issue there always is in both countries.
A senior administration official tells ABC News: this is a political year in which the Russians just had an election, were about to have a presidential and congressional elections this is not the kind of year in which were going to resolve incredibly complicated issue like this. So theres an advantage to pulling back and letting the technical experts work on this as the president has been saying.

“Pssst,, hey, lets keep this on the down low. I have to wait until after the election before i can do things you want,,that my people do not.”
Evil low life,, most Un-American president in history.
Obama wants a chance to give away the U.S. secrets and those of all of “one of our greatest allies” <——pick one.
0 is down with committing outright treason. There is no WAY he should have security clearance.
Treason!!! where are our checks and balances ?
Jake Tapper at ABC is the exception to the rule.
And at least Bill Clinton got a few million in campaign donations from the Chinese for those hard drives with the missile guidance system info. What does Obama get for concessions to the neo-Coms?
Who is Hussein working for?
When I heard his remarks this morning my blood pressure went through the roof. Not only will he give Russia more, he really believes he’s going to be re-elected. I wonder why? He is very sure of himself for some reason.
This man is a danger to this country and its people. If something isn’t done to remove him..we are toast.
Nope. Not us.
Neo-Coms - New Communists - though Putin is really an old Commie that likes to show off his physique!
Neo-Cons - That’s a bit derogatory for Libs who’ve seen the light.
He’s pretty confident he’s going to win. Just like Robert Mugabe or Hugo Chavez facing an election. People can go to the polls but the outcome is not in doubt.
A-friggin’MEN! I swear, I was so decided not to reward the RNC with a vote for Rino Romney, but the kenyan in the white hut’s actions over the last few days (”he could’ve been my son” and this open mike crap) have forced me to change my mind. I would vote for a brain dead butt monkey to get rid of the kenyan.
TRANSLATION: “JUST WAIT- I CAN SCREW MY OWN COUNTRY OVER *AFTER* I AM RE-ELECTED”
And all that for a biscuit for Michelle’s big butt.
And all that for a biscuit for Michelle’s big butt. A tragedy and then a farce, and now I see what Marx meant.
America is ... soooo ... screwed ...
I’m sure it’s no coincidence that at the same time the Traitor in Chief is giving away our security the Russian media has been hammering away at Obama’s fake birth certificate.
I’m guessing Vladimir got the dirt on Obama and now he’s using it to extort from Obama what Gorbachev could never get from Reagan.
Perhaps Obama will have more flexibility to unilaterally disarm the US of its nuclear weapons?????? Or maybe more flexibility to distance the US from NATO? Or maybe Israel?
Wow. Maybe Putin will want to contribute to Obamas re-election with all that at stake. Or offer the services of the KGB...
Amazing how Obama, without fail, makes allies of our enemies.

Sounds to me like he knows the fix is in.
Didn’t some foreign country buy the voter tallying machines or something?
I’m sure that is going to be their next tactic. Big bad American people threaten obama...news at 6. Break out the violins, someone hates Barry!!
Got news, 59%+ hate this marxist trash and the scum he floats with!!
Venezuela (Smartmatic) bought Sequoia Diebold some years ago through a shell company in The Dutch West Indies. Chavez and his Cuban handlers had their mands all over Smartmatic.
Not sure about the machines, but my “FRAUD” meter is running amok.
OK. Thanks for the explanation.
That is a great way to search. Thanks!
Well duh. Can you say Banana Republic. That check & balance left 25 yrs ago.
Obama is going to give away the farm win or lose the election. The lame duck session will be the scariest event in our lifetime with all the RINO’s at the table.
Putin and Medvedez are men of at least honor and loyalty abd commitment to their country. They do lie, cheat and steal. Therefore, they must totally despise Obama for his cowardly treachery to a country that has entrusted our lives, way of life and futures to him. Totally sickening. I’m sure the Ruskies scornfully laugh at the POS quisling.
This Traitor should be arrested and sent to Leavenworth,He is selling out our Defense secrets to the Russians in Plain sight
0bama is not just un-American...he is ANTI-American.
And, still the sheeple tolerate him. It’s so very true; we get the government we deserve.
