Barack Obama’s grovelling before the Russians is an embarrassment
Telegraph ^ | Nile Gardiner

Posted on 03/28/2012 4:26:38 AM PDT by nuconvert

Ronald Reagan, together with Margaret Thatcher, stood up to Moscow, and brought the Soviet Empire to its knees. In contrast, Barack Obama has gone on his knees to grovel before the Russians. The exchange between President Obama and his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev in Seoul was a display of supplication before a major strategic adversary on an issue of great importance for US national security – missile defence.

-excerpt-

Barack Obama’s comments are disturbing on several levels. First, they display a willingness to placate America’s enemies, and cede ground over issues of national interest. Second, Obama is linking foreign policy decision-making to the timetable of the US presidential election, openly telling the Russians that he will deliver when he is no longer constrained by seeking re-election. This demonstrates contempt for the American people, suggesting that what he tells the Russians may be completely different to his message at home. Third, they reveal a dismissive approach towards America’s friends in eastern and central Europe, as well as US allies in the Gulf states, who must be wondering now if they will be sold out next.

-excerpt-

The Gipper was a titan on the world stage, feared by America's enemies. In marked contrast, the current President has all too often humbled his own nation before the world.

Of course he grovels. The Russians know about his little “eligibility” issue.

So what we need to discern from this is that Barack Hussein Obama sees the American Electorate
as the problem and the "Enemy"and thus we are the ones to be LIED To. And not the (sic) former Soviet Union.

Does President Obama have any idea what a terrible thing he has done by making his "flexibility" comment to the Russian leader?

Basically, Obama told the Russian leader this: You scratch my back now, and if I win the U.S. 2012 presidential election, I will, in turn, scratch your back after I start my second term.

The worst, unthinkable thing that Obama is doing is this: President Obama is allowing a foreign power, Russia, to deeply influence the results of the United States 2012 presidential election.

Here is what Obama's "flexibility" statement is telling Russia:

1. If Russia does NOTHING between now, March 2012, and the United States elections in Nov.2012, then such Russian silence will help Obama win re-election, according to President Obama.

2. On the other hand, if Russia starts making trouble during the same period, Obama could lose the 2012 election.

3. If he loses the 2012 election, Obama is telling the Russians, there is no way that he will be able to help Russia, because Russia will have to deal with a new President in 2013 who may not be as friendly to Russia as Obama is.

4. But if he wins with Russia's help, Obama is telling the Russians, he will be "flexible" in their political negotiations.

5. In summary, President Obama is doing the unthinkable: He is allowing Russia, a foreign power, to influence our 2012 presidential election, something that should shock and outrage all Americans.

6. To President Obama: My God, what have you done? Do you realize what a terrible thing you have done with your "you scratch my back and I'll scratch your back" secret agreement with the Russian leader?

This was one of the most appalling, treasonous things he has done yet...and it’s getting almost no critical coverage. It should be at the top of every newspaper.

The guy is a traitor and hates the United States. He shouldn’t be anywhere near the Presidency.

He also has utter contempt for US procedures in developing policy, planning military strategy, and dealing with foreign powers. He obviously regards the election as just a necessary fiction, giving him unlimited powers and making him accountable to no one.

Dear God, I pray to thee. Please remove this cancerous tumor that was elected president. The greatness and survival of America depends on it. And please turn the hearts of his supporters to the wisdom that they are lacking, or just forsaking, due to their selfish greed and blind stupidity. Please enlighten their sorry stupid asses before the next election, and before it’s too late. God in heaven, save us.

It was shameful.

But it was telling.

Who else is he making deals with?

We know about this because he got caught. What we don’t know is how many other deals he has made with foreign powers.
We have a President, whi is selling us out piece by piece.
He has single handedly handed the Mis-East to the Muslim Brotherhood, he has given the New Black panthers a pass and now encourages attacks on a Hispanic man accused of a young man who looks like he could be Obama’s son.He has exported illegal guns into Mexico while he has imported illegal mexicans into this country. Worst of all he has given us a medical system that condemns older citizens to rationing of their health care and will cost trillions.

It is tough for Obama. I mean he is expected to ‘stand tall’ and face down all the people he admires and respects in the world.

Forget all the hype about Obama is a dictator and a Communist and a Muslim. It is unimportant.

However the ‘facts’ clearly demonstrate that he certainly wants to be a dictator. He has said so himself, clearly. The facts clearly show that he has nothing but disdain and contempt for Christianity, while simultaneously embracing and lauding all things Islamic. The facts clearly show that he has nothing buy respect and admiration for all the enemies of the Western World, while simultaneously treating all of our partners with what is clearly ‘extreme disrespect’. These characteristics are not opinion or conspiracy theory, they are just simply a fact.

Ask yourself the question, Would he be ‘deferential’ to Britain or Israel? Clearly the answer is a resounding NO. However, with China, Venezuela, Iran, Afghanistan, and all other non-Western powers, he has no problem goveling on behalf of America like a little child.

I do not understand what criteria Obama uses to determine which countries he respects and which countries he has personal animosity toward. It seems to be based on a juvenile capricious though process which is heavily influenced by some outdated Hippy crap right out of the 1960s. I'm still waiting for Obama to give the State of the Union address wearing a torn ‘Che’ teeshirt and flashing a ‘peace’ sign.

Anyone remember when Soetoro was a representative and went with other Congressmen to Russia and the plane was delayed for hours on the Russian tarmac due to ‘someone’s’ passport problems? Seems Russia was proactive on getting down to the truth and possibly holding this over him?

Also, still remembering the drone that landed in Iran. Anynone from muslim brotherhood in the US side of the program who could have had a hand in giving our technology to them? Why has there been nothing done to get to the truth on that? Handing our military technology over to the enemy- the only thing missing was a pink bow.

And I am now believing the story of Soros approaching BO and HC, asking who would help destroy the American economy. Totally fits.

Obama’s goal has always been to bring America to her knees.

Perhaps it is time to oblige?

If this nation doesn’t return to God and Prayer, our freedom and liberties will be lost, having been so misused for self-indulgence and a culture of no consequences.

The open mic betrays Obama as he betrays his country. He is conspiring with a potential enemy of his country to solicit their connivance to influence the American election but he is also assuring our adversary that they will in return be rewarded by Obama who will act against the perceived national interests of his people. Together, in furtherance of the conspiracy, they will act to deceive the American people.

Every one of these assertions is the inescapable inference to be drawn from the words of the parties unwittingly memorialized on tape. Obama's plea for "space" is a bid to a co-conspirator to deceive the American people by delaying manifestation of Russia's demands on the United States. Obama's promise of "flexibility" is his quid pro quo, a promise to deliver what Russia wants. The deal is a secret conspiracy because Obama knows that the people United States do not want such a deal and would regard their national security interests to be threatened if they knew.

The deal involves exposing the United States to the most fundamental of threats, a missile delivered nuclear attack which would literally destroy the nation and/or our allies.

Here the Chief Diplomatic Officer of the United States of America is secretly conspiring to undermine commonly understood American security-that is why it is a conspiracy.

I want Newt Gingrich to make this case, I think he can do it better than Santorum or Romney. I believe he is more willing and certainly more able than Romney to do so but I understand that Romney is our putative nominee, so I call upon Romney now to get out there and prove he is worthy to bear the standard.

For the record:

Obama’s New START Treaty with the Russian Federation reduce deployed US nuclear warheads by 70% - from 5600 under Bush to 1600 under New START, (nearest hundred).

Obama initiative - not a Bush carryover.

Ratified with 70+ votes in the Senate in 2011.

Obama has since publically proclaimed a desire to reduce REMAINING nukes by 80%.

Who will stop the new Islamic caliphate and our fraternal socialist brothers from worldwide aggression when we are no longer a nuclear power?

I do not understand what criteria Obama uses to determine which countries he respects and which countries he has personal animosity toward.

I think Dinesh D'Souza nails it in "The Roots of Obama's Rage". Obama views the world through the eyes of an anti-colonial marxist (like his father).

He seeks to level the playing field, and to punish and weaken former white European colonial powers.

Once again, Hussein shows his true colors and they aren’t red, white, and blue.

Remember, the man he described in “his” book as his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a card-carrying Communist.

There are a lot of people who don’t have internet or cable, who have no idea that this stuff is going on.

I know a lot of people who would be outraged if they knew 1/10th, or 1/100th of the truth about Obama, but they are not going to hear it on the nightly news.

How can we reach those people?

If we’re going to be activists to get the truth out, where do we get it out to?

Put up posters at gas pumps, grocery stores, laundries...

Any other ideas?

to me the most reasonable conclusion is becoming that he had some informal contact with kgb or related parties in college, and has ever since.

He had several hours alone in siberia when he was held up for ‘passport issues.’ At the time I heard of this, it sounded suspiciously like a debriefing.

He gave russia their preferred date for nixing the poland missile defense deal, the date of the soviet invasion of poland.

Russia does nothing to embarrass him, ever.

He is actively working to decimate the nuclear arsenal and apparently kill missile defense before leaving office.

In fact Obama and Lugar were detained in Perm (not a Siberia but Western Urals) over a case of alleged kickback scheme with Russian nuke officials under a US financed program for dismantling former-Soviet derelict warheads.
They also used USAF aircraft illegally in that area. I think an idea was they were businessmen negotiating something with a head of local nuke facility. KGB searched USAF plane and their baggage, confiscated some documents they got at facility to learn if it could be classified. After agents verified their status to learn Obama and Lugar are actually immune US officials they have released both along with aircrew.
